Quote of the Day

But procrastination is not just about putting off some deed - it's also about the doer. And my own theory, based on what is surely unparalleled personal experience, is that procrastinators use distraction to self-medicate when they're feeling bad about themselves, much like what Tolstoy said about why people smoke and drink: "simply and solely in order to drown the warning voice of conscience."

- Daniel Akst
