Been diving into Antifragile: Things that Gain from Disorder by Nassim Nicholas Taleb.

Only about 1/3 of the way through so can’t give a full opinion on it. Initially however it’s been interesting and I would recommend (reader beware his writing style is unique, it doesn’t bother me but I could see it bothering others).

Anyways, Taleb speak about procrastination and how this is a normal human function and actually serves a purpose. If we are procrastinating on a task then maybe we should question if we actually need to complete that action! It’s information that we can use to guide our lives.

He uses a good example of when he is writing. If he is procrastinating about writing a certain section or chapter of a book then that means it should be eliminated completely. In other words if it’s not essential and doesn’t move us to take action then we probably shouldn’t be doing it.
