Why Procrastination Is Good

Very interesting thought from Cal Newport:

The evolutionary perspective on procrastination, by contrast, says we delay because our frontal lobe doesn’t see a convincing plan behind our aspiration. The solution, therefore, is not to muster the courage to blindly charge ahead, but to instead accept what our brain is telling us: our plans need more hard work invested before they’re ready.

So, procrastination might not be a character flaw, but a telling signal: your brain doesn’t buy your plan.
