Why do we procrastinate, even over tasks that are crucial or close to our heart? Is this habit really a flaw? John Perry is a philosopher, Professor Emeritus of Philosophy at Stanford University and UC Riverside, himself a great procrastinator. He signs here an iconoclastic essay on this phenomenon, that is often ill-understood according to him. Indeed, procrastination would not necessarily be the opposite of productivity. For the author, there is a “structured procrastination”: an approach that consists in assuming this urge rather than repressing it, and in driving it to nonetheless progress in our work.

An original perspective that will help incorrigible procrastinators to feel less guilty!
