Postponing, gratification

Can’t seem to remember; maybe you have some pointers:
Where is the literature on procrastination [beautiful word] where we get outlined what the impact is of

Some things give the satisfaction of Doing, other thing give the satisfaction of Done.

Which is something that crossed my mind. Of course, there’s some element of Doing being satisfactory because one enjoys the learning that goes on, and/or the improvement detected during / due to that, and on the other side the element of Boring that is encountered when the learning isn’t there (routine, rote chores) and only the tick-off at the end signals the job is done hence one’s proud of one’s efforts and gets satisfaction from the very mountain of ill will overcome. Which you now have for having read that sentence. Which was too long.
