Inside the mind of a master procrastinator | Tim Urban

Visit TED.com to get our entire library of TED Talks, transcripts, translations, personalized talk recommendations and more.
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 ROfilm 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 logged into Ravelry for the third time in the last two hours, checked the News, read a blog that I had already checked out this morning and had another cup of coffee I really didn't want. All that so I don't have to clean my house. Oh, and I watched this talk about procrastination. I might have to watch another one or two before I finally start cleaning - unless it's time for bed by then. If that's the case I'll clean tomorrow.
