Procrastination. It’s simply about your brain doing mathematics.

Do you wanna know how to turn the result into action instead?

BRAIN’S PRIMARY PURPOSE aka what your brain is busy about the whole day

“You can think about energy efficiency like a budget. A financial budget tracks money as it’s earned and spent. A budget for your body similarly tracks resources like water, salt, and glucose as you gain and lose them. Each action that spends resources, such as swimming or running, is like a withdrawal from your account. Actions that replenish your resources, such as eating and sleeping, are like deposits. This is a simplified explanation, but it captures the key idea that running a body requires biological resources. Every action you take (or don’t take) is an economic choice — your brain is guessing when to spend resources and when to save them. The best way to keep to a financial budget, as you may know from personal experience, is to avoid surprises — to anticipate your financial needs before they arise and make sure you have the resources to meet them. The same is true of a body budget.”

WHY WE PROCRASTINATINE… sometimes

“When it came to body budgeting, prediction beat reaction. A creature that prepared its movement before the predator struck was more likely to be around tomorrow than a creature that awaited a predator’s pounce. Creatures that predicted correctly most of the time, or made nonfatal mistakes and learned from them, did well.”
