Thank you for sharing this, @Kaustubh Katdare.

I did not know about this guy or his super popular blog. In this TED Talk he talks about his blog post that he wrote back in 2013. The post was titled Why Procrastinators Procrastinate and it was a huge success. The TED talk is same as the above link but how he ends things is different in the TED Talk. In the TED Talk he talks about how every week is a circle and we must try to use it properly. In his blog though, things are different, he writes another blog post titled about How to Beat Procrastination in which he gives detailed solutions on how to tackle procrastination. The thing I liked about this is that he gives not just the solution but tells you the problem areas that might affect you from reaching your goal. The illustrations are useful and fun. I have already put this strategy to get back in shape and let’s see how far I can go.

I request other CE members to check out the links about at least have a read so that they can help them and others.

I'm planning to print the instant gratification monkey on an A4 sized paper and stick it right on the wall so that it keeps reminding me of its existence.

...and I'll do that after watching a few awesome Thug Life videos on YouTube. Will be right back.
