Structured Procrastination: the fine art of doing less, but in a structured way,
or “I’m sorry it took me so long to get it done, I had less important things to do.”

This essay is pretty old and I read many years ago, but I just realized I never shared it. TL;DR, if you can’t beat them join them. 🙂

If you are a procrastinator, don’t try to beat your tendency into submission, instead leverage it to work on other projects. It follows the same logic that recommends to automate as many tasks as possible if you are lazy (something most CS people can relate to). After all, your brain is capable of only so many hours of creative work per day, the rest is drudge work.
