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.

Is it just me, or does this video have zero advice or dealing with procrastination. Like tbh it seems like he procrastinated his presentation too long and just made funny pictures to talk about instead.
Why do today what you can put off 'till tomorrow, right? Also, I landed on this video after an hour of watching video clips about Temple Grandin, for no productive reason. Clearly all of this is helping me accomplish the relatively long to-do list on my calendar. Somehow I managed to finish grad-school.
I used to procrastinate a lot. Not to a massive extent like him but I still did. Then just one day I forced to do my homework as soon as I got home. It was only 20 minutes because I rushed but it made a difference. Two years later I never procrastinate and my life is more enjoyable plus my grades went up.
In 7th grade my procrastination was really bad and it got even worse when my language arts teacher said the dreaded "E" word. A 5 paragraph essay due at the end each quarter. Now mind you I already hated this teacher and she didn't like me either. I never did the first essay because I didn't care it didn't matter to me. Fast forward to the last quarter of 7th grade year and my grade in the class is suffering greatly. I was forced into study hall until I got the dang essay done and even then I procrastinated. Fast forward again to the due date of the essay. There is 18 minutes left of study hall then the day is over and I still have a blank page. And that fellow commenters is when the panic monster was alerted. I wrote that essay in 15 minutes with terrible grammar and spelling mistakes everywhere but I edited it in 2 minutes. And with 1 minute left I finally turned in that essay. I learned a life lesson that day and you learn something too.
i have watched this like 5 times and every time its before i have something big due in very soon........ :) i have 9h before school starts and a whole essay in for period1 :))))))))) (goes to sleep anyway****)
Nothing against this dude, but this is ridiculous I used to procrastinate all the time I don’t now because I got the determination to do what I need to do. don’t blame your lazy ness on a monkey in your head get up do some work... like now
MY TRICK TO KIND OF STOP PROCRASTINATING:
if i have an essay due, i start by typing words straight from my mind. i joke, i cuss, i make useless comments, but it's about the essay topic. i call it my "rough draft", which is basically a watered-down, not-researched bunch of words. but it does help me to ease from monkey mode to rational mode. i'm still mokey-ing around with my paper, but i also grow more serious about correcting and researching the facts.
hope this helps!
