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.

Very interesting!

This is very informative and interesting. I've listened to the first few in this series, and so far he has explained topics such as the difference between procrastination and delay, and personality traits associated with procrastination. So far he seems to be laying the groundwork with the intention of eventually getting into practical applications of overcoming procrastination.


I procrastinated reading Dr. Neil Fiore's The Now Habit and had to read 150 pages in less than three hours. I only finished 100 now I have to wait 8-10 months because of the waiting list. Your netcast and website are helping me along. Keep producing Carpe Diem. I see myself in those and it's a real slap=in-the-face/eye-opener.


This podcast really helped me recognize the problems I was facing to complete my academic projects including thesis. He explained in detail covering all reasons for procrastination and you will realize what is the nature of your procrastination and how to deal with it. -Sharad Singh New York
