John Perry wrote an essay about how to use procrastination to become a super-productive person:
The procrastinator can be motivated to do difficult, timely and important tasks, as long as these tasks are a way of not doing something more important. Structured procrastination means shaping the structure of the tasks one has to do in a way that exploits this fact. ... With this sort of appropriate task structure, the procrastinator becomes a useful citizen. Indeed, the procrastinator can even acquire, as I have, a reputation for getting a lot done.
He wrote it nearly ten years ago. What does it mean that I'm only now getting around to reading it?
