Dr. Timothy A. Pychyl, associate professor of psychology and director of the Procrastination Research Group (Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada), provides a series of short talks, interviews and question/answer podcasts that explain why we procrastinate and what we can do about it. An award winning educator, Dr. Pychyl challenges his listeners to explore their daily choices to act or postpone acting on their intentions. Do we head to the gym as intended, or slouch back on the couch thinking "I'll feel more like a workout tomorrow"? Do we tackle the task now, or do we avoid it arguing to ourselves that "I work better under pressure"? From losing 10 pounds to changing personal habits, Pychyl, a personality psychologist, focuses on the breakdown of intentional action - a problem commonly called procrastination. This series expands on three main themes: 1) irrational delay that sabotages personal productivity, 2) personality attributes that contribute to self-defeating behaviours, and 3) situational factors that undermine our ability to take or sustain action. Drawing on the research literature, topics include: self-handicapping, anxiety, self-regulation, perfectionism, will power, coping styles, effects on health and well-being, impulsivity, temporal discounting, motivation and even purpose in life. Of course, Dr. Pychyl doesn’t leave his listeners with the problem itself. Once these key factors have been established, he turns his attention to techniques that facilitate self change, habit-breaking implementation intentions, as well as strategies that help each of us to “carpe diem!� The emphasis is on self-understanding, practical advice and tools for change. We guarantee that you will find this an engaging series of podcasts that will provide you with tactics to increase personal productivity and well-being.

The best

I have read a number of books & listened to some podcasts on this subject, but in my opinion these are the best that I have found so far. The mixture of research details & real life examples make it interesting & useful, whilst being easy to listen to whilst I do household chores (I like that I’m getting stuff done at the same time!). I would thoroughly recommend them to anyone that suffers from perfectionism or procrastination. I only started to listen recently, but I have found that they are already helping me to change some bad habits & to reconsider how I look at how I choose to spend my time. Thank you very much, Dr Pychyl :)

Already Hooked

One podcast in, and I think I may have wasted all that time and money on self help books. Here is the direct research, straight from the horses mouth, and not filtered by some productivity Guru.

Really helpful - makes you think

I absolutely love these podcasts. I have improved my motivation and willpower a lot since I started listening. I have a science background, so I find the chat about research very interesting, but there are plenty of practical tips contained within. I really recommend the episode called something like "20 tips" as a good place to get started.
