Why your brain loves procrastination by Susanna Locke - "Psychologists see procrastination as a misplaced coping mechanism, as an emotion-focused coping strategy. [People who procrastinate are] using avoidance to cope with emotions, and many of them are non-conscious emotions. So we see it as giving in to feel good. And it’s related to a lack of self-regulation skills." (As well as, not forgiving yourself for lack of follow through in the past.)
