    Procrastinating is so useful, I do lots of work on projects which do not have an immediate deadline, or begin new ones… and if you manage to shape up and do everything in the last minute, you find you’ve met your deadline and done lots of other things as well. So for some people it’s another name for dynamism and restlessness.
