I have touched upon procrastination a little in the past. Today I found out that there is a formula that explains the psychology of motivation and procrastination [^].

Motivation Equation

In other words, if a we have a reasonable sense that something is achievable (expectancy), the pay-off is going to be high (value), the activity was planned (not impulsive) and the timeframe is short (low delay) then motivation should be high. As soon as any of these factors start to move then the motivation and chance of procrastination will also change. Any one of these factors can have a big impact on the way that someone reacts to the task.
