Summary

We all obsess about worrying less, but worrying can actually be good for you. Similarly we strive to be proactive and fast - but aren't there hidden benefits to procrastinating? The last thing a parent is meant to do is neglect their offspring, but children do amazing things when you just leave them alone. And at work we spend hours frantically brainstorming, but isn't there a benefit to just lazily staring out of the window? 

In this short piece, Zoe Beaty explores the benefits of being a frequent latecomer, and why not being on time might actually be the best thing for you. 

Everything Bad Is Good for You is a new series of short pieces dedicated to the much-maligned personality traits that we should actually be promoting. Just as Susan Cain's Quiet showed that introversion is actually a superpower and Sarah Knight made us all realise that not giving a f--k can actually improve our lives, these surprising and entertaining audiobooks will celebrate our perceived flaws - and show why embracing rather than suppressing them can be the difference between failure and success.
