The Psychic Cost of Procastination - Breathing Space Blog

An article years back, titled “Man returns book overdue since 1960,” highlights the high cost of procrastrination. Robert Nuranen of Hancock, Michigan turned in a book that he had borrowed for a ninth-grade assignment. Mr. Nuranen claimed that his mother misplaced the copy of "Prince of Egypt" while cleaning.

Every now and then, the family came across the book, only to set it aside again. (Hardly his mother’s fault.) He found the book again near New Year’s day while going through a box in the attic, looking for something else

"I figured I'd better get it in before we waited another 10 years," he reported. With with a $171.32 check, equal to 47 years' worth of late fees, he proceeded to the library. The librarian said that the library had long ago lost any record of the book, but she said, "I'm going to use it as an example," she said. "It's never too late to return your books."

If only he had read my book, The 60 Second Procrastinator. He might have turned it in a bit earlier!
