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 just came by this video while looking for online summary's about The Count of Monte Cristo, a book that I was suppose to start a month ago and a half ago... After scrolling through other interesting videos, not pertaining to my homework, I found this video. One thing this TED talk did not talk about was how to stop procrastinating... is there a way? because I'm doing it right now.
I have a test tomorrow in Biology about the cell. :) watching this video atm... and saying 1 hour more, time right now is 17:22. I have now been inspired to start studying at 18:00. Tomorrow 12:45 I start my test. :D I CAN DO THIS!

I came into YouTube today to watch some videos after being hit with a sudden wave of sadness. I’ve been wanting start an Instagram account for my music (I write songs) for about 6 months now, but I’ve never been able to do it and I feel like I’m stuck and will never be able to start the account. I wanted to watch something for possibly some inspiration, some advice. I was going to search something like “how to start a singing account” but then decided against it because I saw more interesting looking videos come up on recommended and decided that I’ll start my account possible next week. I then came across this video and clicked on a it -not watching it for the purpose of solving this problem I’m facing mentally at the moment, just because it seemed interesting , and it literally related exactly to what I’ve been feeling.Procrastinating on my dreams with a lingering sadness behind my hope because I can’t seem to get things done. This is crazy.i needed this advice. Hey if you want to support my account g follow @_felorna I’ll start becoming active soon this post is a promise to myself
pff that’s nothing, I’ve got 12 finals coming up in the coming 3 weeks, followed by 1 week off and 14 exams that allow me to skip ahead a year of school, but I’ve got to study a year worth of content in 3 months, we’ll I’ve got 1 month left and haven’t started but can’t start because I haven’t started the preparation for my finals next week meaning I’ll have 1 week to study 9 months worth of 8 hour school days... this is much worse that I thought now that I wrote it down on paper lol
Ugh, that HORRIBLE kind of procrastination where there's no deadline... I'm an aspiring artist, and I do a lot of art online with other people. But, because I procrastinate, I end up not doing things for weeks or even months, and then this horrible feeling of guilt follows me everywhere I go until the mountains of art I have to do for other people are finally swept away after the course of many months. It SUCKS because you know you have something to do, but you don't do it, and because there's nothing to make you stressed for only a day and then have it all released, the guilt and fear and stress piles up until you break down and feel like curling up in a dark closet somewhere, rocking back and forth with your knees clutched to your chest. It's really one of the most awful things you can do to yourself, but most people that struggle with it (including myself) don't know how to crawl out of the little pit we've dug ourselves into. I guess all you can do is just push yourself to actually do the work...

As a child, there was a portrait in our family home in Paris that I always loved. Today, it’s known as Maya with Doll – but to me it was just a portrait of my mother, albeit a remarkable one. “Your grandfather was a painter,” she would say, whenever the subject of the canvas, one of many that hung around the house, came up in discussion. It was only when I began school, and whispers about my heritage started to follow me, that I realised what an understatement that was. My grandfather was far more than a painter. He was the defining figure of 20th-century art – and, as I would learn later from years of academic study, a true genius. It was a revelation that would shape the course of my life in many ways. When Picasso died – in 1973, the year before I was born – he left behind 45,000 works, not to mention personal objects and correspondence.
