Procrastination is pleasure in pain

While we can easily break our day into chunks to manage it, the procrastinator requires more pain to invoke discipline.
They trade the current moment as stolen joy from a future burden, eventually pinned under the stress and anxiety of "too late."
Procrastinating seems akin to the thrill of gambling: risking loss as a means to generate excitement and challenge, and of course, the commensurate charge if you "pull it off."
