Who here is a procrastinator? Quite a few on this site I would expect…
How do you deal with it?
The attached video (if I’ve attached the link correctly) is an excellent little TED talk about procrastination by someone called Tim Urban. One of his main conclusions is that everyone is a procrastinator to some degree. For 10 minute or so it’s a funny, light-hearted talk, then in the last couple of minutes he expertly switches and starts talking about deeper stuff that I found quite touching.
I myself am a chronic procrastinator, and this video summarises it in a simple, humorous way. I instantly recognised myself. While watching it, I was craving a solution… and in the last minute or so of the video he KIND OF provides one. I thought it was a pretty good solution anyway.
