Procrastinate wisely

I’m not even going to pretend that there isn’t selfish motivation in me sharing this post. Full disclosure, I may be sharing this in an attempt at validating my procrastinatory tendancies.

This week is a video from organisational psychologist Adam Grant about how some level of procrastination can help when you’re trying to tackle something that requires a degree of creative thinking and connection between divergent ideas. Moderate procrastination is associated with more original ideas.

The trick is finding the sweet spot - I still tend to be too far along the procrastination spectrum at times!
