the E=MC2 of procrastination

I have no New Year resolution this year atleast nothing that tells me to wake up at insanely unearthly hours and sweat it out in the cold. This I learnt from the past experiences. Dr. Piers Steel has worked 10 years on the topic of procrastination and has his own theory on the same.

Steel has also come up with the E=MC2 of procrastination, a formula he’s dubbed Temporal Motivational Theory, which takes into account factors such as the expectancy a person has of succeeding with a given task (E), the value of completing the task (V), the desirability of the task (Utility), its immediacy or availability (Ã) and the person’s sensitivity to delay (D).

It looks like this and uses the Greek letter Ã: Utility = E x V/ÃD

But do I need to really need a research for 10 years to tell me if the new year resolutions work and procrastination is not exactly a good thing? I dunno, maybe Ill start a research topic sometime soon titled ‘Understanding blogging from the focal point of an inverse relation relation between time spent and productivity’
