I'll procrastinate tomorrow

I was going to procrastinate today, but I'm putting it off until tomorrow.

It's very bad, but I forgive myself:
The key finding was that students who'd forgiven themselves for their initial bout of procrastination subsequently showed less negative affect in the intermediate period between exams and were less likely to procrastinate before the second round of exams. Crucially, self-forgiveness wasn't related to performance in the first set of exams but it did predict better performance in the second set.
So much for the irrelevance of research.

  1. Good news is that you can also sleep at your desk: http://bps-research-digest.blogspot.com/2010/04/how-to-nap.html

  2. I saw the research about desk-sleeping, and noted that they found that lying down is better than sleeping forward on your desk. I find it hard to get around to napping, as much as I'd like to.

  3. why don't you use the sofa in front of your office?

    Or the one in the TMP area, that one is much softer and the room much more quiet... :)

  4. That's a good idea. I'll do that tomorrow.

    But seriously, I can't sleep with the light on.

  5. How do you know the light is on, when you sleep?
