Ashley Yaffe Humanities 11 Mr. Hammitte 5/4/18 Procrastination Response Paper In the Ted Talk, ¨Inside the Mind of a Master Procrastinator,¨ Tim Urban explains how he always turned in paper assignments late that were given by professors. A procrastinator has different thoughts in the brain than a non procrastinator. A procrastinator lives life in the moment instead of planning for everything. Tim names the part of the the brain that searches only for satisfaction and pleasure, the monkey. The monkey does not want to accomplish anything that is difficult and that is not in his best interest. The monkey takes the easy way out and makes the important tasks his last priority. Tim brings up the other topic about the rational decision maker who searches for evidence that seems right. The rational decision maker has the important tasks be his first priority and plans ahead for the future. The panic monster is when the deadline is near and the task has not been started, so the fear kicks in.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
