It’s time to meet the Instant Gratification Monkey…


So we got good news and bad news… Apparently we are all procrastinators.

That’s right we are all guilty of procrastibaking or cooking up other ways to avoid the tasks we really should do but that end up being pushed aside for just another five minutes.

Tim Urban’s hilarious and insightful Ted Talk introduces us to the Instant Gratification Monkey, his arch nemesis the Rational Decision Maker and our personal favourite The Panic Monster (a character every uni student knows too well).

But as comical as these characters sound, Tim uses them to explain the struggle happening inside our minds when procrastination rears it’s ugly and unproductive head.

Now if you’ll excuse us, our vanilla cupcakes need frosting 🙂
