Why are so many people so last-minute? Is there actually a time and place to procrastinate? This self-induced stress is common because procrastination has a way of focusing us as we let our options tick away as the deadline draws near. Waiting has an art to it. Some people are impulsive and tend to hate waiting. These people fire and then aim while judging those who hesitate. Others are notorious procrastinators while they get bogged down by a paralysis of analysis and judge those who chronically jump the gun. There is a time to wait and a time to move quickly.
