Inside the mind of a master procrastinator | Tim Urban 5

Tim Urban knows that procrastination doesn't make sense, but he's never been able to shake his habit of waiting until the last minute to get things done. In this hilarious and insightful talk, Urban takes us on a journey through YouTube binges, Wikipedia rabbit holes and bouts of staring out the window -- and encourages us to think harder about what we're really procrastinating on, before we run out of time.

When procrastinators are in panic mode, they have unparrelled energy and temporarily the most productive person in the world.

The worst feeling is being in the dark playground and something makes you think of the stuff you have to do. You just get that quick hit of anxiety.

I play a little mind game that I learned from “Your Success Method by Michael Kennedy” …so whenever I feel that I’m gonna procrastinate on a task I start playing this “game” in my mind that reframes the whole task and makes it a whole lot easier for me to work on the task instead of letting my mind say “I’ll do it later”, its not the same as visualisations which is less powerful IMO

When you're a procrastinator you still know that there needs to be stuff done but you're just like "well, it's not like it's the deadline or anything" but at the same time you're like "but still, shouldn't I just be getting it done and over with?" and you still don't end up doing it.

I'm a big procrastinator, but recently I've started to stop. It's not easy at all, but with enough work and dedication, anybody can stop.

When he showed the boxes of a 90 year life I almost cried. Because he's giving us a deadline to 'release the panic monster' to start working toward your dreams. And I was thankful. Because truly, that's not that many boxes.
