Described as “the hastening of subgoal completion, even at the expense of extra physical effort,” but it can apply to tasks (like office work) that don’t involve physical labor.
Basically, you precrastinate if you opt to put in extra effort in the rush to complete a task (and tick it off your to-do list) that may end up being unnecessary with a little more time and planning.
You and your team are gearing up for a complex project, and they’ve sent a number of emails asking for clarification on certain points. Rather than taking the time to write back in a thoughtful and deliberate manner or schedule a call to discuss, you send back a series of half-baked replies.
Eg from my perspective:
When organizing the team on slack with small messages I find it to destroy my deepwork. Also the team is not very productive.
A solution is to have a clear call where we go through all the plan and make a rule to disturb the other one only in case of a bottleneck, otherwise have a call after 6-8h and see whats up.
