Student Syndrome

January 16, 2009

Why projects fail to meet the deadline:

Why activities run late.

The Wikipedia entry explains why this "Student Syndrome" is a good thing :-) :


The student syndrome is defended by a layman's understanding of the functioning of the human memory, most notably the concept that a person's short-term memory fades over time, and thus studying at the last possible moment leads to better results than studying early because more of the material will be remembered during the exam.

I work at Venture Spirit. Follow me on Twitter; you'll enjoy my tweets. I take care to carefully craft each one. Or at least aim to make you giggle. Or offended. One of those two— I haven't decided which yet.
