Keep not doing what you’re doing, says Frank Partnoy

I once worked for a guy who told me there was ‘too much thinking’ going on in my office. I didn’t work for him long. Procrastination is the dirty word for reflection.

In the new book, Wait: The Art and Science of Delay, Frank Partnoy explain why studying a decision makes for a better outcome. He also offers a simple calculation for how to identify the last possible moment to make up one’s mind. Megan Gambino interviews the author for the Smithsonian.
