TMT, Formula or Folly?

Temporal Motivation Theory: Formula or Folly? Equations are not theories; prediction is not explanation. Published on March 27, 2008 by Timothy A. Pychyl, Ph.D. in Don't Delay from: One of the most significant, recent publications aboutprocrastination is a comprehensive meta-analysis conducted by Piers Steel (University of Calgary, Alberta) and published in Psychological Bulletin (2007). This paper is well written and a must read for my thesis students. Unfortunately, I find it misleading, because of its focus on an equation to explain procrastination. Economists and na├»ve realists need not read on.
