Procrastination is Good!!!!

Procrastination is good????

you must be wondering what the heck.. have I lost it or sumthing.... well the answer is NO...I am perfectly sane so far..... what I did mean is that a systematic approach to procrastinating can be really great... :-) .... As Robert Benchley says in his article How to get things done
The psychological principle is this: anyone can do any amount of
work, provided it isn't the work he is supposed to be doing at
that moment.
What Robert Benchley and John Perry in his essay on Structured Procrastination are trying to say is that you should never fight the tendency to procrastinate -- instead, you should use it to your advantage in order to get other things done.

Well reading these 2 essays and a post by Marc Andreessen on ways to improve Personal Productivity (thats how i actually ended reading abt structured procrastination), have decided that i will try to implement the points in my daily life.... just that i will now have to come up with some other less important activity than watching TV.... which i can do in lieu of not watching TV..... :-P.... Have a huge list of things to do lets see.....

well guess am doin gud in applying the learnings, cos managed to finish this entry today without procrastination... :-D....
