Inside the mind of a master procrastinator | Tim Urban






Questions for Discussion:

Session 1
1.The speaker said,” All of us are procrastinators.” Do you agree with it? Why or why not? What kind of people do you think are more likely to drag than others?

2.Why do people procrastinate? What things do you tend to delay and what not? When you are procrastinating, what do you think and how do you feel?

3.What is the worst procrastination you have done or seen? What frustration or troubles has procrastination brought to your life? What kind of delay can you stand and what drives you crazy?

4.What excuses will you or other people make when you are delaying doing something that you should do? Share a good and/or lousy ones you have heard of or made.


Session 2
5.Do you have any good ideas to beat procrastination?

6.Many people fall into the habit of procrastination, but is it really a “problem”? Can you think of any advantages of it?

7.The speaker mentioned procrastination "with" and "without" deadline. Please give us some examples. What are the differences between them? Do they cause you similar or different regret or pain? Are you procrastinating on something serious now ? What is it? Why?

8.What works best to you - delay doing something until the last minute, make progress step by step following a plan, or others?

Hi Gloria

This clip is quite educative. Too bad I couldn't see it earlier.
The monkey and panic monster are funny metaphor which is quite appreciate and accurate as well.
But the speaker just pointed it out, I would like to know how he deal with it or just live with it.

Thanks for sharing this meaningful topic!

And then the panic monster showed up, Wow! It's super super funny, but....
...
in the end, I didn't feel funny, I felt terribly sad
Because of the calendar, so sad. :cry: :cry:

Dear Rock and Jason,

You're so nice to encourage me like that.
This week, I'm also trying hard to get back to my usual routine life and I didin't check the fourm. :oops: (......sorry........)
As a rookie, I'm under pressure preparing for the hosting. But, the process also made me extremely EXCITED. :lol:

I try to live with my monkey because occationally I feel it's quite intriguing to procrastinate to the last minute and use my full power to get things done. :lol: :lol: :lol:
I don't know if anyone has the same feeling as I do? :mrgreen:

[0:34] everything gets done and things stay civil
[1:1] in the end I will click it up to high gear
[2:00] pull an all-nighter; pull two all-nighters
[3:07] my behavior always perplex the non-procrastinators around me
[4:41] a Youtube spiral
[6:26] for the sake of the big picture
[7:00] the fun is not actually fun because it's completely unearned
[9:22] a few seconds later the whole system in mayhem
[10:32] but what struck me was the contrast between the light tone of the notes and the heaviness ...
[11:07] the effects of procrastination are contained to the short term
[11:17] a self-starter
[11:26] to get some momentum to get things going
[12:23] cram for some projects
[12:43] I read these e-mails and I had a little bit of epiphany
