Procrastination’r us

Irgendwie durchaus einleuchtend, aber schön, dass das von einer Studie belegt wurde:

Procrastination in society is getting worse and scientists are finally getting around to figuring out how and why. Too many tempting diversions are to blame, but more on that later.

After 10 years of research on a project that was only supposed to take five years, a Canadian industrial psychologist found in a giant study that not only is procrastination on the rise, it makes people poorer, fatter and unhappier.

Abgesehen davon, daß ich gerne wissen würde, inwieweit Procrastination dazu geführt hat, dass die Studie doppelt so lange gedauert hat, finde ich die Implikationen dieser vielschichtigen Ablenkungen interessant.

At work, e-mail, the Internet and games are just a click away, making procrastination effortless, Steel said.

“That stupid game Minesweeper — that probably has cost billions of dollars for the whole society,” he said.

The U.S. gross national product would probably rise by $50 billion if the icon and sound that notifies people of new e-mail suddenly disappear, he added.

Es kommt eben doch auf die richtig Work/Procrastination-Balance an.
