A lovely little article here on procrastination. No, not how to avoid, or conversely some comic justification for it. Instead, it’s a thoughtful consideration of the types of procrastination, and then, what it really means to procrastinate.
One thing which I really jive with is the talk about tackling big projects. It’s so hard for most people because the risks are large, and the benefits may be distant in time. But it’s worth remembering, and it’s very true, that hard work always leads somewhere. It may not be where you thought you were going, or where you thought you wanted to, but it goes somewhere. Getting negative results is not bad science.
