Takumi, You have hit the nail right on the head....
Work, or play time expands into the time available.
The old business adage is true. If you want something
done quickly, give it to some one who has too much to
do.. they will get it done. All a mater of priorities.
I just tell my students my time and theirs is too
valuable to waste if the work is not done. Period!
