I am sure all of us have had instances where your procrastination has caused more issues and there might have been different ways in which we bring out this trait in us. For sure, I am one (sadly) in certain things that I wish I am otherwise. I do get my work done but I sometimes let that little monkey (as mentioned by Tim Urban) take over the steering wheel of my mind. Now, this talk is very interesting not just because of the topic, "Inside the mind of a master procrastinator" but is his style of presentation.
An engaging and brilliant discussion that gave a small whack to my 'mind'. Well, yeah, it was interesting to see how that little monkey takes our mind for a ride and stress rises up when we have an unwanted visitor- panic monster. This TED Talk also kind of revealed how deadlines play a crucial role in understanding the ways in which one can avoid procrastinating. Just like how I decided to keep a challenge to help me write everyday - by having a blog page and also a journal, it makes me reduce the chances of procrastination (sometimes I don't !) and make it easier to keep that monkey at bay.
Do watch this and I'm sure you will totally enjoy this session.
