I was dismayed to read this major revelation when I checked the news this morning
In one fell swoop this has not only destroyed my years of research on the subject but demolished the theory I was working on: that procrastination is down to how the elbow works. Apparently, Prof Tim Pychyl, from Carleton University, Ottawa, who, as well as having to contend with a severe shortage of vowels in his name, has been studying procrastination for ‘the past few decades’. It seems an awfully long time, but perhaps other things kept getting in the way and it never really seemed the right time to get properly started.
The only good thing to come out of this is that it leaves me more time to devote to my suspicion that there is a link between walking and the feet making contact with the ground. I intend to apply for a government grant to enable me to really throw myself into this challenge, and I will keep my loyal readers informed of any progress.
