“Because if you don't know how to manage time, time can rule you like a tyrant.”
Frank Partnoy, Wait: The Useful Art of Procrastination

“The dog on the cover of this book—let’s call her Maggie—is a role model for those of us who want to make better decisions. Maggie could have devoured the biscuit resting on her snout in the blink of an eye. Instead, she is holding back, showing us she can keep her instincts and emotions in check, delaying the pleasure of the snack she can smell all too well. Although this book is mostly about human beings, not animals, its central point is that we can learn a lot from Maggie.”
Frank Partnoy, Wait: The Art and Science of Delay

“Psychologists have suggested we have two systems of thinking, one intuitive and one analytical, both of which can lead us to make serious cognitive mistakes.”
Frank Partnoy, Wait: The Art and Science of Delay
