About the class
Imagine how productive the world would be. Some of us can’t help putting off that all-important piece of work, job or university application, or else just can’t sit down to get those annoying little bits of life admin done – we’ve all been affected negatively by procrastination at some point. So why do we do it? In this skills lab, Maxted will explore the psychology and neuroscience of procrastination – rethinking and reconceptualising the issue – as well as providing practical takeaways to help you procrastinate less.
