The School of Life | Book | Procrastination
Many of us are quiet geniuses at the art of procrastination. We tend to feel so guilty about everything we haven’t done yet (and the hours frittered away as though we were immortal), we never get around to reflecting on why we delay and how we might do so less often. It seems as if we have procrastinated too much to deserve a new start.

Topics discussed include "busy-ness", deadlines, psychoanalysis, existensial angst, eating, sorrow and compassion, a brief history of procrastination
