That is the way our brains are wired, whenever you think about a subject and make some kind of decision about it ("I should clean the bathroom") your brain considers it accomplished. So in the short run, when you do this you stop fretting about the dirty bathroom but of course you don't do anything positive to actually move it forward. So it's just another way of more comfortably procrastinating. That's why I walk in the door and think, " really should pick up the clothes out of the floor," but never get around to doing it! Thank you.
