One more reason to respect deadlines

Here the result of a longitudinal study showing that:
Students who found reason to avoid work-related tasks at university, and who were pessimistic about their chances of success, were more likely, 10, 14 and 17 years later, to report feeling disengaged from their job, and were more likely to report experiencing work-related burnout.
Of course, those with higher work-ethic and more optimism were less likely to experience work related burnout. For those who are not aware of the syndrome,here, Wikipedia has a description of what is "Occupational burn-out" and who is more likely to suffer from it.
