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.

oof im online schooled, and i barely did any work all year. I looked up almost all of my answers in all my subjects. I told myself id scram to study as much as possible by the start of April for the SOL's in may... I THINK I HAVE LIKE 2 OR 3 WEEKS LEFT BEFORE THE TESTS AND I STILL HAVEN'T STUDIED. and im not gonna study even after writing this comment. i srsly need help.
The fact that he took the time to make that calendar like that dude spent at least a day in that. I can imagine him like “huh I should keep working in my ted talk” and then he went “ you know what would be a sick visual aid, a blank page with like a ton of boxes for every week in a humans life, huh let’s do the math and spend one day making that the most accurate as possible” which tbh it’s something I not only would do but also have done at some point bc why not
I also would like to point out that I have a dead line for two weeks for five projects and I have done like 3% of them and I decided “I can’t find motivation let’s look for videos on YT about motivation” and then at some point I was like “huh look it’s the video you have been meaning to watch for a while, let’s watch that. Oh and then we can scroll through the comments and write our own, we can make it as long as we want because the works going to still be there when this is over y'know”
Have a deep issue with this :(,
A lot of the issue is that I tell myself: I do not "waste time". From the time I taught myself to read I used to have 2-5+ encyclopædia volumes in my room. It typically started out like this: What does it say about submarines? Reading about submarines I got caught up in a lot of other things - what is a ballast tank? Who was Napier what is a natural algorithm … and so on. All good and well - but not when one have a set topic one should be working on.
This have followed me trough school and into professional life. It is a pain. My Instant Gratification is satisfying curiosity - or the "need to know" - and it is very easy to tell myself "it is knowledge, so not that bad".
i dont know why this is always a suggesting, im not waiting on the auto generator or any dipshit sitting behind they're fathers office desk terrorising my naked picture sites, or my piss poor social establishment in a small town ,
Am the biggest procrastinator in my class, but when my panic monster wake up just before final exams i make things done in a day or tow while my class mates takes a week or more than a week to get it nearly done, furthermore my grades are the highest in the whole class. It’s ok to be a procrastinator who know that he is able to do it when ever he want successfully.
I watched this video earlier when I thought I was not a procrastinator and did not find it very enjoyable.But when there's only 3 days to an assignment and I'm here on youtube watching history and lore of game of thrones and finally stumble upon this video some how,all these light bulbs started going on in my head lol you bad monkey!
Procrastinating as I watch a TED talk about procrastinators. Watching this to keep from editing the 400+ wedding photos I took a month ago. It’s a hobby, folks, and for good reason. My family would starve if that were my full time job, as I HATE the editing part of it. My full time job is nursing. Funny how the first set of people he mentioned who responded to his emails were nurses.🙄🤦🏼♀️😂 👩🏼⚕️
Procrastination isn’t always contained even when there is deadline. Sometimes the panic monster gets out of dormancy a little too late. Some other times the instant gratification monkey finds the courage to stand up to the panic monster for a while and when the reigns are finally in the hands of the rational decision maker, he is too damn flabbergasted to function properly.
The Instant Gratification Monkey in me jumps... "It's me ! it's Me"...OMG.. This is totally what I'm
But yes, I love that infinite potential and the surge of adrenaline I experience with that Panic monster... I miss him when there are endeavours that comes with no deadlines... Watching this video I now realise that, I literally haven't achieved or completed anything that comes without a deadline...
That's a great insight and speech... Kudos @timurban
