Student syndrome

From wikipedia:

Student syndrome refers to the phenomenon that many people will start to fully apply themselves to a task just at the last possible moment before a deadline. This leads to wasting any buffers built into individual task duration estimates.

Oops, most of us do suffer from this syndrome (including myself, for much as I fight it). I heard about this on a great Scrum event presented by Mitch Lacey, and decided to share it with you. But more about it later.

PS: now I post as soon as I can. Am I cured?... :)

PS2: it is good to know this is worldwide problem, not a national one :)
