"Is procrastination a weakness of will?" “When we procrastinate we are doing a bad job at something essential to temporally extended agency: placing activities in time." (Sarah Stroud), The Thief of Time, Philosphical Essays on Procrastination. "What explains imprudent procrastination in which a non-negligable burden is imposed on one future selves seems to be a lack of concern for one's future selves. Future selves are considered to be strangers, to whom one can pass the buck and impose a sometimes heavy and uncompensated burden." (Christine Tappolet, "Procrastination and Personal Identity", in The Thief of Time).
