The Power of Procrastination
This was the title of a talk I went to today. Excellent title, isn't it?
It was a talk by PhD Comics author Jorge Cham. And it was great. He did an excellent job of entertaining the audience (98% grad students by the way), relating to them, and motivating them to hold on. (I'll be waiting to see if he decides to write a strip about his visit to Minnesota.)
His message was basically that procrastination is okay. And when you are a grad student, making close to minimum wage, having to take work with you home, and not being able to see the end of your studies, this is exactly the kind of message you need to hear.
How do you think procrastination can be helpful?
