Read This Later (It’s Okay to Procrastinate)

Good news (albeit late) for those of us who prefer to procrastinate.
It’s not a bad habit! John Tierney of the NY Times explains:

Researchers have independently identified the phenomenon of positive procrastination, although there’s some disagreement on what to call it. “Structured procrastination” is the preferred term of John Perry, a philosopher at Stanford who published a book about it last year. Admittedly, it’s not a long book (92 quite small pages), but give him credit: He got it done, and only 17 years after he identified the concept.
