Procrastination can have a positive outcome - but, it depends…

If you’re filling your mind with something that is purely entertainment, it’s not likely that this will result in any constructive thoughts.

However, if when you’re taking time away from doing what you’re “supposed” to be doing, you are discovering what others are up to around the world, this can be the thought-provoking external stimulus you need to generate your next idea.

This obviously won’t happen often, but if you never let your attention wander, then you will always just be stuck with what your own brain can conjure up.
