I would add references to procrastination and add that especially for some type of people the third item is the intellectually most interesting and satisfying one. Sebastian -- 08:19, 10 November 2014 (UTC)

A great 18th century quote by Dr. Samuel Johnson, saying much the same thing:

We talked of the education of children; and I asked him what he thought was best to teach them first.
JOHNSON. 'Sir, it is no matter what you teach them first, any more than what leg you shall put into your breeches first. Sir, you may stand disputing which leg is best to put in first, but in the mean time your bottom is bare. Sir, while you are considering which of two things you should teach your child first, another boy has learnt them both.' - Boswell's Life of Johnson GreenWyvern (talk) 09:54, 10 November 2014 (UTC)
