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.

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.
Precrastination is described as rushing to complete a subgoal so you can tick it off your to-do list at the expense of extra effort. As a result, you will need more effort later to complete the overall goal.
We are part of a culture that values productivity, but we also desire instant gratification. When you combine the push for productivity with our love for instant gratification, you can fall into the trap of "precrastinaiton."
There are many reasons why we begin projects but never finish them, and many of them actually have nothing to do with laziness, a lack of dedication, or an inability to follow through on something.
A lot of us probably fall into another category: those who struggle with the middle parts of a task.
Not every meeting can be done in 15 minutes, but for general day-to-day things, 15 minutes is ideal.
