More on ‘If Not Now, When?’

In connection with my post of Carpe Decade–If Not Now, When (Say Never!), you may like to check out John Tierney’s December 28th article about carpe diem.  Tierney discusses, among other things, the commercial effects of procrastination (all those unused gift certificates) as people wait for the perfect moment to use them.  Unfortunately, expiration (or forgetfullness) often seems to precede this perfect moment.
