In fact, Fallingwater, Wright’s architectural masterpiece, was reportedly sketched 30 minutes before the client arrived at his office. While procrastination is normally associated with negative consequences such as being stressed out or late, Rory Vaden, author of Procrastinate on Purpose, says strategic procrastination is a tool used by the ultra-successful.

"Chronic overachievers suffer from a kind of procrastination called priority dilution," says Vaden.

Here are 15 easy ways to make every day more productive: 1. Messy work space: Creativity may arise from chaos, but a litter-strewn office probably isn’t helping you get stuff done.
