A University of Calgary Professor Steel finally (after 10 years of study) explains procrastination with a math equation!

The equation reads: Utility = E x V / (Gamma) x D

Steel's formula, called the Temporal Motivation Theory, calculates procrastination like Albert Einstein's equation for energy, E=MC^{2}. It factors the person's expectancy for succeeding at a given task (E) or self-confidence; the value of completing the task (V); its immediacy or availability (Gamma); and the person's sensitivity to delay (D) to come up with the desirability of the task (Utility).

I suppose if I ever want to get our bathroom remodeling completed I'm going to have to increase one of the variables in the equation,,,
