I’ll say more tomorrow

A couple of thoughts on motivation and procrastination for your Monday…
Working hurts less that procrastinating, we fear the twinge of starting
“Thanks to hyperbolic discounting (i.e., weighting values in inverse proportion to their temporal distance) the instant pain of disengaging from an Internet article and paying a prefrontal override cost, can outweigh the slightly more distant (minutes in the future, rather than seconds) pain of continuing to procrastinate, which is, once again, usually more painful than being in the middle of doing the work.”
