I think simply bringing up procrastination is over done in this day and age. College students procrastinate. Fine. Whatever. But Miguel’s podcast did more than just bring up and talk about the problem. He shared his experiences, for one thing, which really added to the project because he has a particularly hard time dealing with procrastination and his story really draws you in because of the problems he faces. He also made a really interesting comparison between procrastination and the idea of delayed gratification, that I personally hadn’t thought about before.
Best of all, Miguel told in his project how he defeated the procrastination. He didn’t make it sound like an entirely universal solution, which was good. It was just his personal victory, which was nice to hear.
