Motivating minds (The Economist Jan 24th - 30th, 2008)

A recent study on why people procrastinate produced some interesting results, specifically (emphasis added by me):

...those who were presented with concrete tasks and information responded more promptly than those who were asked to think in an abstract way.

I suppose this all makes intuitive sense but applying these principals in our work is, well, usually left till later on.
