Deal with errands with Procrastination

In Paul Graham's "Good and Bad Procrastination", he says, "The reason it pays to put off even those errands is that real work needs two things errands don't: big chunks of time, and the right mood." Another reason I can think of is that errands are not important. You don't want to allocate you time (capital) on low-return events to your career or your life. According to Steven Covey, we should always focus on the "important but not urgent" things. This is the same philosophy as Warren Buffett's capital allocation. One is on time, one is on money.

So how do you deal with errands? Procrastinate.
