    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 LTposts 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.

laughed so much while watching this video because I've never seen someone explained it in the right words!! I really want to stop procrastinating, but it doesn't feel that good for me to finish it before the deadline, and I always manage to get my work done despite doing it days/minutes before the deadline, that's why I still procrastinate lol HHNNGG

A procrastinators mind in a simplified way. You do stuff but it's not fun and you don't want to do it, but bad things will happen if you don't finish the stuff, so you do it tomorrow, and again tomorrow and so on until it is almost the deadline, and you remember bad things will happen, so you do the stuff but you have no the "not wanting to do this" ache in your heart.
