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 MRslow 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 me watching the whole thing when i have a final exam for wich i havent study in a few hours

  • Soooo i have homework due tomorrow? Its um been due for like 2 weeks..

  • I think "the dark playground" is a really good name for it. And the whole description - procrastinating actually mostly isn't fun. Sometimes it is, but a lot of the time you aren't even focused on those "fun activities" since you're just doing them to not do the ones you dread

  • I have actually been procrastinating on watching this video.......I’m not joking

  • Iya ya Allah.

  • I'm literally watching this as I near a deadline for my project at the end of the week.

  • FUN FACT: Im procrastinating as i watch this.

  • Next ted talk: how to kill the monkey

  • i wish i could tell y’all the amount of times i procrastinated away this video and now im here thanks panic mode......

  • This guy is a genius at explaining stuff. High IQ is linked to procrastination, and many many intelligent people can't really escape from it.

  • This video was in my recommendations for 2 months before I actually watched it

  • Was going to comment but I’ll do it later

  • The mature salary cytomorphologically haunt because glove peroperativly repair before a stupid ghost. yummy, succinct owner

  • This is why I want to be a dog, I don't need to procrastinate because there's nothing to procrastinate about.

  • This has to be the greatest TED talk in the history of TED talks.

  • All those dislikes are from non-procrastinators

  • I've saved this video and I'll watch it later

  • My brain is like "Mate, Stop procrastinating!" But I cant help it-

  • My brain: due tomorrow Me: ok, do tomorrow

  • This is the best ted talk I've ever watched so far

  • I really loved this video! As a writer I too sometimes forget the difference between writers block and just plain resistance. This video helped me realize that the very definition of what I’m currently struggling with is that of procrastinating. Delaying my work with easy and short-term gratification. I haven’t had writers block in years and now I’m dealing with something that much more deadlier- PROCRASTINATION! I definitely need to make some deadlines.

  • I’ve been meaning to watch this....

  • I procrastinate that badly I didn’t want to watch this

  • You want to see inside the mind of a master procrastinator? Ask me anything

  • I've been meaning to watch this for over a year. Now that I finally did, around 6 weeks ago, I thought I'd leave this comment. Lovely presentation, thanks.

  • Maar tijdens het maken van zijn speech vertelt hij dus dat hij het maken van zijn speech uitstelt

  • Great talk. I finally have a diagnosis!!

  • OMG I was getting my work done then I stumbled on this video, PROCASTINATING LMFAO

  • "What's important is not the result, but the journey" My brain: shut up nobody cares about the journey so imma speedrun it while I still can

  • me : arguing with myself if I should sleep or study also me : watches a video about procrastination

  • niceeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

  • Watching this instead of doing my homework, the irony.

  • and knowing that i got good grades even if i procrastinated just made it even harder to stop procrastinating..

  • There MRslow, I watched it. Now get it out of my recommended

  • This guy's pretty amazing at explaining obvious stuff

  • Ill do my essay after this video... Maybe

  • I have a test tomorrow but I think watching this is a better use of my time

  • being a stubborn procrastinator is the hardest feeling, you just become stubborn and not sleep until you finish it. but ending up not finishing and postponing every time..

  • The reasoning explained in this video is the reasoning a have right now watching this

  • this dude reminds me of gary vee

  • What happens to me is that I just look at an assignment and then it's too hard at a glance so I say "eh, i'll do it later" and then later becomes the minute before class.

  • This is basically everyone. If our brain makes our behavior a little bit more efficient then it could really help a lot. Too bad we're lazy species

  • Not that funny, at the end ofthe video, my monster poped up, i got spooked

  • Last 2 minutes really hit

  • Discipline is freedom.

  • The master procrastinators are the ones watching this video instead of doing their homework

  • Fun fact: I’m watching this video while I should be studying.

Me: What do you even want to do so bad? Brain; Not schoolwork Me: But we have so much time now come on just do it! Brain: You just did one whole assignment you deserve a day long break!
