Let me propose it to you this way: Imagine your quality of life metricised to hourly chunks. Let's just give it a number and say your quality of life is at 60 per hour. Making it a neat 1 point per minute.
Now do you put off doing homework or writing or such? Oh no, procrastination.
But here's the thing, if we treat homework or other tasks as dropping quality of life, then they cause a quality debt to occur. Say each hour of homework is at 30 quality of life. That means you're 30 short for each hour of homework.
Are you going to try and argue the extreme long term "Oh, I'll eventually get a job and it'll pay such great money that this reduction in quality of life will be paid off"
Okay, so...are you doing your homework, or still procrastinating? If the latter, then that argument just didn't really work, did it?
So, what to do? I'll get onto that latter, in another post (lol!)
