Anyone who has been in a position of managing others will probably be familiar with procrastination and its effects. A task is boring or unpleasant, mundane or tedious, and something else is potentially more interesting or exciting, and so the boring task is sidelined in favour of the more interesting one; often meaning that vital – but intrinsically dull – tasks are left undone or are allowed to run close to or over deadlines, while staff choose to spend time on things which may be fun, but might not actually add to productivity or profit.
