What is your Marginal Product of Procrastination

It's from the Chronicle of Higher Education, and the title is "How to Procrastinate like Leonardo Da Vinci." Here's a great couple of lines:

"Nowadays, Leonardo might have been hired by a top research university, but it seems likely that he would have been denied tenure. He had lots of notes but relatively little to put in his portfolio."

So if I blog too much and don't hit enough articles, could I say I'm a modern age Leonardo? It's kind of like saying your grades are bad so you're just like Einstein.

Leonardo's biography is on nightstand, by the way, and I'm eager to get to it soon.
