Animated: Science of Procrastination and How to Manage I

This is where you insert the meta-joke about what else you’re actually supposed to be doing this very moment.

From AsapSCIENCE —

Who have previously brought us the scientific cure for hangoversthe neurobiology of orgasms, and how music enchants the brain — comes this illustrated explication of the science of procrastination and how to manage it.

A fine addition to these five perspectives on procrastination.

Among the proposed solutions is the Pomodoro technique, a time-management method similar to time boxing that uses timed intervals of work and reward.

Human motivation is highly influenced by how imminent the reward is perceived to be.

Meaning, the further away the reward is, the more you discount its value.

This is often referred to as Present bias, or Hyperbolic discounting.

For a more metaphysical take on the subject, see the fantastic anthology The Thief of Time: Philosophical Essays on Procrastination.
