A few years back a friend of mine introduced me to Tim Urban and his Instant Gratification Monkey. Well, not his personal IGM of course (though you can catch a glimpse if you watch the TED talk) but the concept of why some of us procrastinate even to our detriment.
If you’ve never heard of the IGM or the Panic Monster, you should check it out because it’s hilarious. And scarily true. I’ve rarely met a creative person who doesn’t have a very active IGM.
