Wait But Why on Procrastination is really, really good

A long read, with graphics, but the whole series is well worth reading…

“No, ‘avoid procrastination’ is only good advice for fake procrastinators—those people that are like, ‘I totally go on Facebook a few times every day at work—I’m such a procrastinator!’ The same people that will say to a real procrastinator something like, ‘Just don’t procrastinate and you’ll be fine.’

The thing that neither the dictionary nor fake procrastinators understand is that for a real procrastinator, procrastination isn’t optional—it’s something they don’t know how to not do.”
