The Art Of Procrastination With Frank Partnoy Aug. 3, 2012

from KUOW NPR· ·

Frank Partnoy technically started developing his theory on procrastination when he was 8 years old. His mom asked him to make his bed because they were having company over, and he refused to do so until he heard a car pull up outside. Those thoughts evolved into a two–step analytic model to approaching procrastination. First: determine the maximum amount of time you can delay. Second: within that time frame, wait as long as you possibly can. Partnoy spoke about the art and science of procrastination on July 11 at Seattle's Town Hall.
