There is No Time Like the Present
What do people wait until the last minute? Is it just human nature? Is it pure procrastination? It is that people work better under pressure?
I am definitely one of those people with the title over their head “there is no time like the present”. I get shit done. We have been involved in several real estate projects and no matter how much time you give a contractor to build something knowing that you are padding the build by months, they all seem to prefer getting everything done with days to spare. Why?
In college, I worked in an engineering firm. I had a security clearance so I was one of the people who would sign out documents to engineers working on Government projects. Some of these projects were a year long while others many years. I always knew when a project was almost due because people that I had never seen before would show up out of the woodwork en masse to check out a document. Last minute rush.
Maybe it is the rush? I am not sure what it is but I am constantly fascinated with human nature. For me, last minute just gives me serious angst. How about for any of you?
