I can’t agree more. Good points you have there.
Honestly, procrastinators, especially crammers, get their job done because they put things off only when they are sure they can finish it. I’m a crammer myself and I’ve never missed a deadline. I went as far as doing an MP the night before the deadline and actually finished it in time for submission, but that’s because I already had the algorithm figured out in my head.
And the weird thing about most crammers I know is their OC-ness. I’m OC myself. And how procrastinators satisfy both the deadline and their OC-ness still amazes me.
And I guess you’re right, it’s like an art form. And just like an artist, a procrastinator knows when it’s time to do what needs to be done. Just like how a painter knows that he needs to paint.
