Inside the mind of a master procrastinator | Tim Urban

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.

  • I really liked how it started on a very light tone but in the end gave out a really powerful message.
    Especially the no deadline procrastination problem is a threat one cannot deny.

  • People who procrastinate by watching this video are plebs, look at me, I'm procrastinating by writing this comment!

  • This is a really nice talk. The only thing missing here is a solution to combat procrastination. I've found that thinking about the panic monster as soon as possible, days to weeks before the deadline, is essential. FEAR THE PANIC MONSTER
