In the New Yorker, James Surowiecki commented on procrastination. “Each year, Americans waste hundreds of millions of dollars because they don’t file their taxes on time. American workers have forgone huge amounts of money in matching 401(k) contributions because they never got around to signing up for a retirement plan. According to Piers Steel, a business professor at the University of Calgary, the percentage of people who admitted to difficulties with procrastination quadrupled between 1978 and 2002. In that light, it’s possible to see procrastination as the quintessential modern problem.”
