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 CS-tv 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.

  • Really the worst part of being a procastinator is the guilt you endure everyday. Man it legit hurts.

  • Procrastination as in.."I should have done that by now"...and the majority of these people commenting how bad they have procrastination disease are 2 different things...you can't procrastinate about something you were never going to do in the first place. These commenters are looking for pity for their lack of motivation to do anything, so lazy with absolutely no desire to change....There are like .."people don't understand, I CAN'T do anything"...and they think I can. looks like they all have liberal arts degrees.
