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 PApost 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.

Not only am I procrastinating by watching this video, but I have been procrastinating by having this video in my watch later playlist for a looong while. No, I wasn't doing more useful things at the time nor is this the ideal time to watch it. :'(

The real Problem is not the Monkey its that we do stuff that we actually hate. So we have to force ourselves to do it. When the deadline arises we panic and do it anyway. Is it really rational to waste our lives with stuff we are not enjoying. Maye we need to learn to enjoy it or maybe we are doing the wrong things completely. When Prokrastination is holding us back its worth analyzing. Prokrastination has a root. Often there is a underlying problem why we need to address..

Beloved, I don't know you in person but God know you. God ministered to me in a revelation when I was on your profile to see things around you,I saw blessings but spiritual attacks holding onto them,in prayers,i saw a woman in the realm of the spirit monitoring and plotting delay in your life, with an evil mirror, and with motive to destroy. But as I speak to you now her time is up, Render hand of favour with Anything you can afford or give to these motherless foundation (Godstime MOTHERLESS FOUNDATION) in kebbi state Nigeria before 2DAYS with faith, as I Rise my hands towards heaven and pray for you they shall serve as point of contact wherever you are, you will receive double portion of grace to excel and total restoration of breakthrough in your life and in the life of your family. Ask for their acct details and help them call the MD in charge of the orphanage to get their details on (WhatsApp or call them now on +2349047398089) tell him I sent an you. For it is not by might nor by in power but of the spirit saith the lord (zechariah 4:6). You shall testify to the Glory of God in your life. God bless you in Jesus name........

This is exactly why I always create deadlines for myself :) I love drawing but I find it very hard to actually start, so I started an Instagram account, made a posting schedule, made friends that would tell me that they missed my posts every time I didn't post for a week and it worked! I now draw weekly and I'm just much happier overall. No one's gonna read this probably but yeah whatever xD
