Researchers have previously identified the mathematical formula for procrastination. Motivation is the result of how much you value completing a task multiplied by your perceived odds of success. Then that’s divided by how impulsive (distractible) you are and the length of time until you have to complete the task. To help you stop dawdling, Alex Vermeer created this easy-to-follow flowchart. Increase the pleasantness and value of the task by following the squares on the left. Decrease impulsiveness by following the ones on the right. Increase expectancy of success with the squares at the bottom. Rinse and repeat until you finally get moving. via Lifehacker
