Am I

the only person who does 'just in time' course preparation? When it works, it's like a well-oiled machine. When it doesn't, I am in panic mode. Each year, I promise to myself that I will do more stuff in the off-peak times. But when the time comes, I work on other stuff, instead. You would think I'd learn. But no. Not me. I must like this. I damn myself to hell each year.

within reason, I think that it is smart to procrastinate about preparing to teach. Many people spend far too much time far too soon in advance.
Is there a balance between cutting it so close that you end up in panic mode and having it eat up your time unecessarily?
