Procrastination lurks in all of our lives. How many times have you put off doing something that needed to be done, whether it’s school work, cleaning the house, or writing that novel you’ve had planned in your head for years? Not to mention scrambling around to finish things right before the deadline? If you’re finally ready to tackle your challenges with procrastination head on, check out these three great TED Talks. You don’t have to put these off, the longest video is under 15 minutes!
Speaker Tim Urban talks about his college experience and his major struggle getting things done. He makes it fun with constant humor, stick-figure illustrations and characters he’s created to express certain emotions. If you enjoy it, make sure to check out his very popular blog, Wait But Why, where he writes long posts every now and then. (Bonus: Even Elon Musk is a fan of his blog!)
In this short video, speaker Matt Cutts, an engineer at Google, adds a dose of humor and relatability as he talks about the benefits of needing only 30 days to positively change one (or more) aspect of your life – and some things he’s accomplished utilizing this straightforward method.
Although not directly focused on the topic of procrastination, speaker Derek Sivers, an entrepreneur, professional musician and founder of popular company, CD Baby, addresses the idea of sharing all of the goals you want to accomplish with others before you actually do them.
