I love procrastination

"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." -- John Perry

I love that quote, its so true. My most productive days are when I have a paper due, because I end up doing all the things I avoided doing for the last month. For example today I did my laundry, took out the trash, cleaned my desk, and took a shower. My paper is due in 6 hours.
