In his lucid delivery he explains the meaning of Procrastination to audience with examples. Procrastination is the avoidance of doing a task, which needs to be accomplished. This can lead to feelings of quilt, inadequacy, depression, and self-doubt among students. Procrastination has a high potential for painful consequences. It interferes with the academic and personal success of students. Sometimes this happens when someone does not understand the difference between urgency and importance. The prevailing belief here: We all have the same amount of time in every day and procrastinators spend this time fully, but do not invest it wisely.Instead, procrastinators focus so much on urgent issues that they have little or no time left for the important tasks, despite the unpleasant outcomes this may bring about. Other causes of procrastination can be as simple as waiting for the “right” mood or the “right” time to tackle the important task at hand; a fear of failure or success; underdeveloped decision-making skills; poor organizational skills; or perfectionism.

Later he suggest techniques about how to overcome  procrastination:

Whatever the reason behind procrastination, it must be recognized, dealt with and controlled before you miss opportunities or your career is derailed. Part of the solution is to develop good organizational and personal effectiveness habits, such as those described in Mind Tools “Make Time for Success!” This helps you establish the right priorities, and manage your time in such a way that you make the most of the opportunities open to you.The other part of the solution can be as simple as applying this rule of thumb: If you’re not working (directly of indirectly) to progress your top priority projects, you’re probably procrastinating.And, when you’re doing something important, such as working on your top-priority project or task, and something urgent comes up, recognize that this will take time away from this important work.With proper planning and some self-discipline, many urgent matters disappear altogether or, when they do surface, your planning and discipline makes them less urgent and easier to deal with. This means that you waste less of the valuable time that should be spent on the important things.


And, keep in mind that you probably do not have to handle every urgent matter yourself. Delegate as far as possible, so that you do not get caught up in remedying every urgent situation. To spend life “firefighting” is a misuse of your “important” time. Of course, almost every job has tedious or unpleasant elements to it – it is important that these parts are done properly. And it is up to you to minimize the time you spend doing tedious jobs. He further says that to over procrastination you should Recognize self-defeating problems such as fear and anxiety, difficulty concentrating, poor time management, indecisiveness, and perfectionism. Identify your personal goals, strengths, weaknesses, values, and priorities. Post your goals so that you are reminded of them daily.Discipline yourself to use your time wisely: set priorities. Make a schedule of these priorities and how to accomplish them. Study in small blocks instead of long time periods. Take big jobs and break them into a series of small ones. For example, take a long reading assignment and break it up into several smaller ones. Motivate yourself to study: dwell on success, not on failure. Try to study in small groups so that others keep you motivated. Set realistic goals for yourself to accomplish. Modify your environment: eliminate or minimize noise and distraction. Ensure adequate lighting and have necessary equipment at hand. Do not get too comfortable when studying. Make sure your study area is neat to avoid daydreaming. Convince yourself that the task is worth doing, even if it’s hard getting started.
