You know, I think my problem with procrastinating is that I do it for everything, and I do good on everything, so I have no need not to procrastinate in my head

Procrastination is worst when there is no deadline.
Google Classroom: ‘Your drama assignments (12 assignments) are due in tomorrow.
Me: point proven.

if I can do it tomorrow, I won't do it today

I'm in the exact place where Tim Urban was.
Right now I have a senior thesis due in 3 days and I just started writing. I'm fighting against the voice says "it's too late, maybe you should give up", but this ted talk encourages me a lot and makes me feel that I'm capable of finishing it, as long as the panic monster inside me is awake. I've watched this talk around 5 times already. Thanks Tim, I'll try my best.

I’m a known procrastinator and I end up actually finishing the thing one day before and get relatively good grades. I don’t know how, I just do.

The best way to remove your procrastination behaviour is by applying deadlines in the work. You can use the pomodora technique. Which is best to remove procrastination. In this you just have to do 45 minutes work and 10 minutes break in between. In that way you can increase your productivity.

In our city there was a bookshop and it had this shelf but it was empty and there was a note saying: "here we are preparing a place for books about procrastination."

Many thanks, I have been researching "erectile dysfunction treatment options natural" for a while now, and I think this has helped. Ever heard of - Narnlivia Stiff Manhood - (should be on google have a look ) ? Ive heard some incredible things about it and my brother in law got excellent results with it.

I had to prepare a topic for an interschool speech and I had 3 weeks time for it. I ended up doing it within an hour. An hour before I had to sleep. Which was was a night before the competition. But the good thing was I won. Procrastinators are also in a way, good at doing things. Not efficient....but good.
