  • I absolutely enjoyed this video. You made me feel bad……which is a good thing… because you only reiterated what I know I should be doing.. Thank you for this Reminder.

  • I really think you need more appreciation (subs,likes,etc) cus your content are bOmB and I’d say ur like a professional youtuber though. Ya know by ur video editing skills that makes ur videos not boring and the way you speak is just really clear and to the point. Keep going, love ya! ��

  • Hey Brooke,
    Is there a way you could do videos on tips for AP exams? Many people take many AP’s a year (like me) and could extremely benefit from them. Thanks!

  • I was thinking about purchasing her ACT Prep Course. Would anyone happen to know what the average growth for a student would be on this course? Thanks in advance!

  • I am the same age as you and my life is based on procrastinating. Since I started watching your videos I have been very inspired to change my habits. I hope your channel continues to grow. Greetings from Argentina <3

  • I am struggling with crushing stress from traumatic overwhelm (due to domestic violence). Your tip #3 resonates. Your planning advice is helpful.

  • Great tips as always Nmao! Power hours are a great tip:) I’m so good at butterflying and trying to do lots of things at once rather than focusing on one at a time!

  • I want to know… What excuses do you use when you procrastinate? What can you start doing today to turn your procrastination mindset into a challenge to push you forward? Comment below!

  • I love this. I also love that you mentioned running. My biggest goal right now is to get back in shape after having a baby. However, my biggest ‘excuse’ or ‘roadblock’ is that I have 3 kids and where do I find time to go running or go to the gym? After watching your video I feel motivated to try and find a solution and let myself be who I want to be.

  • I really want to know how do you color grade your video or is it any lut that you are using, your videos are so vintage and aesthetic

  • Hi Tim, as always, great video very helpful. I have a few extra things that might help people watching this they’ve worked for me, but everyone’s different I guess:)
    Procrastinate Better Most people procrastinate on YouTube, Reddit, Facebook, etc. Whatever it is, there’s usually a group or a channel you can join that, while avoiding work, helps you progress in whatever you’re doing.  In my case, I’m always on YouTube this is actually how I ended up finding this channel! When I’ve found a video to watch that interests me, I shrink down the window and push it off to the right, just enough to hide the “suggested video’s” column this helps me only watch 1 video at a time, and also keeps me out of that weird bit of YouTube…

    Decision Making When planning your tasks, like you said, make them as small as possible, something that can be resolved quickly and make you feel good. The main problem I found with this is when you break things down into such small chunks, you can’t decide what to do next. What I like to do is put everything on it’s own post-it note, and spread them out on the wall or floor, whatever works for you. Before you jump in and pick something, spend 10-15 minutes putting these in groups, e.g.: Programming, Artwork, Model Building, Level Design, Audio, etc. (Different coloured post-it’s work great for this!). Once they’re grouped up, stack all the post-it notes for each group on top of each other, in any order. Then, decide what you feel like working on that day and pull off the post-it notes one at a time. If you reach something you can’t do because you don’t know how to do it yet or something else needs to happen first, put it to the bottom of the pile and move on to the next one.

    Anyhow, stop reading this stupidly long post and get back to work, haha! Keep up the awesome videos!
    Sam

  • so SO glad I found your chanel! you seem like such a sweet person and I love the vibes of your videos<3
    oh, and great tips as well, I’ll definitely be trying them out!:^)

  • Are the podcasts no longer being uploaded to YouTube? I didn’t see this week’s in my subscriptions and don’t see episode 74 on your YouTube channel.

  • The last part of the video give me the energy I was looking for! I am on my final exams and I need to hear that, thank you so so much ✨

  • Great video! I’ve been reading a lot lately about how to stop feeling so busy and get more productive – https://yfsmag.com/2QZw9b6. The Pomodoro Technique they mentioned in the article really helps me!

  • My procrastination is based on difficulty. If something seems hard or beyond my skill level I tend to keep delaying working on it.

  • English Captions can be turned on at the Settings. Please excuse my accent, and feel free to leave comments. I would appreciate your feedback!

  • How I stopped procrastinating is that I would watch college decisions reaction videos and thought “If I want to be them in four years, then I better start now.”

  • I would say that I most often use the very common “I’m too tired” excuse especially if it’s toward the end of the day and it’s something I don’t necessarily have to do. I’ve been meaning to go through my closet and drawers, etc., and get rid of so much stuff, but it feels like too big of a task… always. I think what I can do is just do one section at a time in the evening making it achievable and bite-sized like you always talk about.

    Thanks for this helpful video! I love the reward tip!!

  • Motivation originates in your body not your brain. When you begin a task it rouses your mind. This burst of activity creates motivation and drive, not the other way around. If you wait for motivation to arrive it won’t. Try this test. Work hard for one hour and slack off for one hour. Compare how motivated you felt at the end of each. It won’t be close.

  • Me: *sees video on procrastination*
    Me: *a college student on summer vacation* it’s summer. So I can procrastinate all summer long.

  • What a fantastic video my bro. I think some people are naturally wired to be procrastinators haha. I think that my perfectionist tendencies shows through with the power of starting. The moment I DO start I have to keep going, otherwise it’s not perfect haha-but then again I don’t start because I know it can never be perfect:P

  • I love you soo much. you’re like this super cute, friendly person i could watch all day and would definitely would become friends with❤️❤️Hope you have an amazing day and I’m soo happy when you upload a new video!

  • The best productivity tips video ever! I tried out the greyscale filter on my phone and I noticed I’ve been checking my phone less, so thank you!:)

  • Hi Tonya, I enjoyed this video. I procrastinate on typing up minutes for two reasons. 1) I do not understand all that they are talking about so it makes it difficult to know what is important to them and 2) No matter how I do them, they are picked apart.

  • i’ve only watched like, a few videos of yours so far (i’ll probably fall down the rabbit hole and watch everything within a week-) but i can already tell you’re going to be my lifesaver as i start senior year next month ヽ(;▽;)ノ

  • We should always strive to be more productive & get more done in less time. Delegating tasks to others can also be an amazing thing to do that’ll help you be more productive & focus on high level activities. Virtual assistants are a great option for this because they can do all kinds of tasks for you. Check us out: http://www.virtualassistantservicesnow.com/

  • Isaac! The animation is stellar. You’re so right. Procrastination is a habit. It’s actually more than that it’s a neural pattern. You procrastinate because you’ve wired your brain to procrastinate. Not taking action, lacking focus and having a suffering mindset are all outgrowths of that.

  • I would love to be able to live in the days, where we can wear a VR Headset and work on game development, programming or even just ANYTHING you do on a computer, while doing it in a virtual environment.

    Example:
    Imagine your office or bedroom is cluttered or dirty or too bare or too big or too small or no windows or too many windows or even just what you are used to always seeing and may associate with hanging out and relaxing, rather than being productive.

    VR: Now you put on your VR headset and it is designed in a way you can see a keyboard and mouse and display screens (maybe even able to post notes/codes/tutorials/videos off to the sides) and you can select an environment to work in. Maybe you choose a busy chaotic coffee shop with people walking around and talking. Maybe you choose a mountain side. Maybe an office designed a specific way with specific windows or specific “time-of-day” emulation. The point is, you could create a “work environment” at home, without having to physically move/buy/construct anything in the real world, to create it and changing it could be as simple as choosing it from a menu. Maybe you could even live-stream audio from a place like Panera Bread or a coffee shop, that would be willing to do so (with consent of everyone, which is not likely to happen), that way you get random sounds/conversations.

    I believe this would revolutionize the computer work industry for people who (physically, internet/phone communication irrelevant) work alone. I’m not saying it is best to stay home, but not everyone has a car and a place to go and a portable computer.

  • The third tip is the one that made me nod the most. I tend to focus on everything that’s wrong with the task, and how I could be doing better things in that time. That’s how it all starts for me, and that’s what makes me waste time. I’ll need to be wary of that from now on! By the way, kick ass editing. I especially love the KFC mention. Opened up my appetite…

  • Hey Brooke I just wanted to say thanks for helping me deal with my upcoming APHG test next week. You have been awesome in helping with me deal with some issues that have arose and made me feel more confident that I can crush the exam.:) Also was wondering if you could do a video in the future on the differences between AP courses and the new Camnridge AICE courses as my school is rolling them out next year. Thanks much love.
