О прокрастинации профессионалов

We procrastinate like this because coding is hard. Things can get complicated in a hurry and we — especially those of us who may be new to this level of complexity — can become intimidated by this complexity and grow insecure about our ability to tame it.

It’s much safer to argue over trivial things. Our perceived incompetence is less likely to be exposed that way.

The phenomena of debating trivialities to avoid hard problems is so common that there are a number of popular academic theories that describe it.
