How to use "Put off" in context?

I've never quite understood what it is that puts people off from doing things. Maybe it's the fear of failure or the worry of what others might think. But whatever the reason, more and more people seem to be putting things off until later.

In the past, putting things off meant that something would eventually get done. But now, with so many things vying for our time, it often means that nothing ever gets done. By not taking action, we're not only delaying our own gratification, but we're also letting other things slip.
