I agree with the basic thing you're saying here, although, personally, I would want to right away start with some amount of mental improvements, a bit of debugging here, improvement there. Maybe even taking it a bit slow, but definitely not waiting to at least start. But that's just me. :)

I certainly agree that we don't need to instantly all, well, I believe the phrase you once used was "burn for the light," but I think I'd prefer for the option to at least be available.

Other than that, I could always spend a year contemplating the number 1, then a year contemplating the number 2... (sorry, it was the obvious reference that _HAD_ to be made here. :D)
