Why Do App Developers Still Live with Their Moms? By Jerry Davis, Harvard Business Review #

"With about 1,400 net hires per year, getting a job at Facebook is only slightly more likely than getting drafted into the NFL." #

"If time management were the essence of the problem, a self-imposed deadline should help. But Pychyl and other researchers have come to believe that emotional failures rest at the root of procrastination. Procrastinators delay a task because they're not in the mood to do it and deceive themselves into thinking they will be later on. When that time comes and they're not, they're in the same emotional place but with less time until deadline."#

"The best strategy for addressing procrastination is to find something enjoyable or meaningful in whatever task is before you." #
