Why do I think more clearly last minute?

I am a procrastinator. Why is it that I only think clearly at the last minute? I want to be able to overcome this.

I’d say that’s human nature:

See it even has a name:

‘Parkinson’s Law’

Or to put it another way:

So how do you overcome this?

Create artificial deadlines. Make them ‘believable’ by making them REAL. See deadlines internally with friends/work colleagues or otherwise

Where you’ve given 2 weeks to complete something tell your friend Roger ‘if I don’t complete this within 1 week I’ll wear a skirt to work’.

Post it on the public bulletin board
