Why Laziness Is Not Why You Procrastinate (Your Emotions Are) — from Peter Economy (no idea if that’s his real name)
According to Fuschia Sirois, professor of psychology at the University of Sheffield, it logically does not make sense that anyone would partake in something (like procrastination) when he or she knows it is going to have negative consequences. “This is why we say that procrastination is essentially irrational,” Sirois comments. And, she reveals, “people engage in this irrational cycle of chronic procrastination because of an inability to manage negative moods around a task.”
That’s right: Your mood plays a huge part in how much of a procrastinator you are.
