everyone. I have been meaning to post this for a while...but...you know what
Not a website as such, but a
very useful and enlightening podcast series by Dr. Timothy A. Pychyl, an
associate professor of psychology. From the website:
research based, the purpose of these Podcasts is to provide a less technical
summary of important findings. So, these Podcasts integrate information from
various research papers to communicate key ideas about why we procrastinate and
what we can do to reduce this needless, self-defeating delay"
I have found these helpful in
giving me language to describe and explain my procrastination and therefore
help me confront and reduce it. But be warned they are still for the most part
quite heavy listening and you may need to refrain from listening to a whole
load at once (ask me how I know) because your head may spin! Nevertheless, Tim
is very empathetic towards those who procrastinate, and you will find many a
nugget in his prolific back catalogue of podcasts to help you.

I love that site, thanks for reminder, i lovethe one cast where they talk about "changepower" instead of "willpower" the 'changepower" was being in a group like pa. need to listen to these again.The ideas help get meout of the victim mentality.
amazing episode last week
did anyone catch it? I find it incredibly helpful; lots of ideas!
interview with the graduate student May 31/13:
AOTP fabulous podcast
I've listened to it almost twice now, and I'm thinking that I should have a pen and paper handy!
Her method, whilst obviously very personal, is very highly developed. Part of me thinks that I could never get to that point. But of course I know this is not true. Of course I could.
Isnt it amazing?? I think I've lost count of how many times I've listened to it (often in little chunks). I keep finding little nuggets of information about how she made a process smoother or less complex. Totally inspiring.
I agree; her method is highly developed and I too wonder how her process evolved to this point. It is hard to believe she has experienced challenges with procrastination given her current system! I'd love to hear how she managed the obstacles along the way for even more inspiration/motivation.
It's tempting to think that she can't have a problem with procrastination. But if you listen to what she has developed, she clearly has lot of insight into herself and has developed this system to directly combat every feature of her procrastination behaviour.
No media in the mornings - my my my, how I could use that discipline!
No lunch break
No distracting activity during breaks (FB - you know who you are)
The self-developed rewards system. (amazing)
AOTP I haven't listened in while
But maybe I will try that one today
thank you, knitfisher!
