A project needs to be done. Today's options are:
- Buy more time for completion by making it as complicated as possible.
- Avoid anyone who can help.
- Procrastinate now in order to build up panic-induced energy for later.
- Assume that it will take one-tenth of the time that it will actually require.
- Get with others. Complain that there isn't enough time.
- Turn the project into the search for a plausible excuse for not completing the project.
- Scrutinize the assignment for loopholes.
