I’ve had sitting on my shelf for a year or so a book called The Thief of Time: Philosophical Essays on Procrastination, which I have not quite managed to get round to reading yet, believe it or not, I’ve not had the time, other things to do, you know the sorts of excuses. Anyway, now I notice that Robert Goodin has a new book out, On Settling, all about making do, not endlessly striving for the best outcome.
I think they might make a nice companion pair, somehow. Might even read them one day. If I can be bothered.
Apparently serial procrastinators are poorer, less healthy, and less happy than non-procrastinators
