 +"As the joke goes, I was going to start a procrastinators' club but never got around to it. In the meantime, I seem to be getting stuff done, but not necessarily the stuff I ought to be getting done."
 +"The insightful observation that procrastinators fill their time with effort, not staring at the walls, gives rise to this form of akrasia aikido, where the urge to not do something is cleverly redirected into productivity.  If you can "waste time" by doing useful things, while feeling like you are avoiding doing the "real work", then you avoid depleting your limited supply of willpower (which happens when you force yourself to do something)."
