I came across this video and found it extremely powerful. It perfectly describes the habits of the procrastinator in all of us!
Having done some research into procrastination myself, I realise this is an issue that everyone suffers from to some extent. My question is though, if procrastination is dominant in students, what happens to them when they graduate? Do they break the habit? Do they find a job? Or do the habits linger and inevitably create a prolonged period of, frustration, disillusionment, despondency and guilt? When does procrastination wear out? Does it ever end?
Does being inspired and motivated by your "to-do" list make you less of a procrastinator? What makes a person more prone to procrastination? Can it be solved using a more therapeutic approach rather than an informative one? Telling an alcoholic the symptoms of his addiction may enlighten him to the fact that he has a problem, but it won't get to the route of the problem. There has to be a strategic solution. This is a universal problem and I have no doubt that a vast number of people would welcome the exploration and possibility of solutions to this issue.
So many questions, and so many unknown answers floating around out there somewhere.
This seems like a perfect social design project to get stuck into. Watch this space.
