A procrastinator is a person who delays or puts things off — like work, chores, or other actions — that should be done in a timely manner. A procrastinator is likely to leave all the Christmas shopping until December 24th. Procrastinator comes from the Latin verb procrastinare, which means deferred until tomorrow.
Some of us … just … find ourselves, putting things off for one reason or another. We might kinda sort of feel briefly relieved that we have successfully avoided something unpleasant and traded short term discomfort for long term prolonged and protracted ANXIETY.
Tim is here to help us out. Turns out – those of us who procrastinate are actually under siege. Yes! Turns out, our brains are under attack from a sneaksy, tricksey “instant gratification monkey”! We don’t so much like doing things that are harder and unpleasant.
How could evolution have left us in the lurch like this! We are in the ‘DARK PLAYGROUND’, seeking fun feelings we have not earned, out of the ‘MAKE SENSE CIRCLE’.
It would be quite nice if we could get things done without being inspired or prodded by the ‘PANIC MONSTER’ …
Maybe Tim Urban, a Master Procrastinator and can help …
