Inside the mind of a master procrastinator | Tim Urban

Оценок: 407946 | Просмотров: 12685487
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 have gotten to the point where I procrastinate about eating, I'm like "I should probably eat breakfast" and then the monkey is like "Wait wait wait wait, what about that video from this person?? Or or or, *I* just got a idea for some art" and then the whole days gone and I haven't eaten ^^"

Ah yes, procrastination where you feel like the amount of work you do is virtually worthless and you cower at the thought of others judging your work...SO you do it last minute or not at all to ensure that your work is worthless and no one can judge your complete work to say that it’s terrible. A wonderful vicious cycle. Allow me to tell you where this leads when you do this long-term...though it varies from person-to-person, you’ll have an eventual burn-out then suffer a gradual mental breakdown until a sudden increased amount of stress strangles you into a full mental breakdown where you can either fight or flee. Unfortunately for me I fled, so I’m currently still trying to pick up the broken bits of where I left off. Regardless of the jokes around procrastination, it’s sometimes an indicator for a bigger issue (like a personality disorder for example)...it should be taken more seriously. Moral of the story, take time for self-reflection to ensure a healthy mental balance, and PLEASE for the love of everything get help and talk to others if you notice something wrong.

Basically, only xSxJ types are non- procrastinators, which makes up to 44% of world population.

Now!!! I understand!!! If my momma would have explain it to me instead of telling me to Stop Procrastinating and get it done than maybe the money and I wouldn't had so much fun. Eyema Duhmass, your right, you busted me because I was looking up information about these so-call smart meter that we was force to get. I really enjoyed how Ted Urban explained it.

Tim Urban is amazing! I can't agree more with what he said. Loved the monster analogy ha! I also keep on telling people about the Procrastination Elimination Method by John Isaac - it helped me removed some of the major blocks from my life that were making me procrastinate on everything.

you know you're fucked up when even your panic monster arrives too late...
Jaasir Qureshi (1 день назад)
The problem is once you abuse the panic monster system you slowly get used to it and then you just stop trying. A few years ago in HS and my first two years of college i abused that panic monster and kept using it to get work done and then one day instead of staying up all night doing papers and doing anything i lost the will and started sleeping at around 2am and told myself "look just sleep now and wake up at 6am to study " id put that alarm on and 6am would roll around and id just say f it nothing is gonna get done and went back to sleep and thats how i went from getting 80-85s to becoming a 68-78 student. Slowly i have turned it around just by putting more disciplined people around me and it was my last chance to get it Uni done and now im very close and being able to the see the finish line lit 8 classes away has awoken a fire within me. Im trying to build good habits and discipline which is far more useful than motivation. "Discipline equals freedom"-Jocko willinick

I've watch this video several times and the one thing that i disagree with is the conclusion. Non-procrastinators do exist and that is why procrastinatior is a distinct concept. Society is designed in large part for the non-procrastinator, as it should be, and it wouldn't have been if everyone was a procrastinator. It's not just degree non-procrastinators have a hard time empathising with procrastinators thinking of them as 'lazy' and 'you are responsible for having willpower out of nothingness'.

I have really liked this... watched this blog and it sort of made sense. However! Time management doesn't make sense.. it just doesn't. If you ask people how to manage time, they start to focus on the "time". However, using the panic monster is a bad way to operate in life. The way to get past that... a couple of other videos I think are a little better... "An End to Procrastination | Archana Murthy | TEDxMarcusHighSchool" (reduces stress over time) and "How to gain control of your free time | Laura Vanderkam" (seems to be the key for me).

GovSchnitzel (3 дня назад)
That was absolutely useless. Yeesh. And 90% of the comments are literally the exact same joke about watching the video while procrastinating. I thought TED Talks were generally higher quality than TEDx. This guy must be incredulous that his comically low-effort speech somehow didn’t flop and permanently harm his career.

I relate to this video in many ways but I didn’t find any clear solutions. Did anyone take something away from this? When my anxiety and other mental illnesses were undiagnosed, my panic monster way HUGE. Now that I’m medicated and happier, I feel like I barely have a panic monster at all, even though I want to do so many things.

This video is so funny and so painful to watch for someone like me who has wasted a big part of his life doing nothing cause of the monkey. I have never read/heard/seen anything that resembles my life so much as this video. Hopefully i will find a way to either kill my fucking monkey or give my panic monster an extremelly high on cafeine injection.

Does it count as procrastination if you're doing things when instead you should be sleeping? I mean, you're procrastinating sleep, but that's not what I meant.
