we're all doooooooooomed.
Did I just read the same article?
The article is nice, let me quote some stuff:
For Peter as for many others, procrastination was an almost natural outgrowth of perfectionism
So true... perfectionism = evil!
The greatest boon to procrastination is the online chat room, Knaus observes.

And follow the 10-minute rule. Acknowledge, "I don't feel like doing that," but do it for 10 minutes anyway. That gets you over the hard work of initiation.
"Procrastination is not a problem of time management; time-management skills won't cure it."
Your quote here was a good example of what happens when you leave out the important part:
Procrastination is not a problem of time management; time-management skills won't cure it. But procrastinators do underestimate how long it takes to complete tasks. So cut yourself some slack and build in to your schedule 20 extra minutes between tasks. You'll get more done; you'll like yourself better—and so will everyone around you.
