the idea that every task you put off doing is on average approximately six steps away from any other task you need to do, so that a chain of, "I didn't take out the trash so I can't clean out the fridge" statements can be made, on average, to connect any two tasks in six steps or fewer.
guy: I didn't take the trash to the street so I can't take out the trash from inside so I can't clean out the fridge so I can't go to the grocery store so I can't cook dinner tonight so I can't invite you over.

girl: Great, so you are cancelling because of 6 Degrees of Procrastination.
