Now that Tim has retired from university life, procrastination.ca is transforming from being an academic research group to a website focused on helping users solve the procrastination puzzle. The guiding principle to this transformation is based on something that Tim’s father used to say when Tim would tell his dad about what he was learning at school, “It’s not just that you know something new son. What’s more important is what you do with that knowledge.”
What we want to do with this website is to move from knowing to doing.
Over the next year, we’ll develop the new features of this more applied approach here on procrastination.ca. Our hope is that the resources we provide will make a difference in your life. For now, if you’re trying to solve the procrastination puzzle in your own life, we invite you to check out Tim’s recent series on the Waking Up app as well as the podcast interviews below.

SIMPLEFAMILIES – Procrastination. Host, Denaye Barahona Ph.D., writes, “Procrastination has been on my mind lately, so I invited an expert, Dr. Tim Pychyl, to dissect and explain the many examples I could list in my life where I find myself delaying tasks that feel important. I was fascinated to learn that not all my delays are considered procrastination, how mindfulness relates to procrastinating, and what my 6-year old daughter thinks about this topic. Listen to hear my interview with Tim (and my little girl!).
