For 20+ years prior to retirement from university life, Tim’s focus was on conducting research to better understand procrastination. Of course, he read widely on related topics in psychology such as self-control, self-regulation, emotion regulation, willpower, intentions, action, values and goals.
Although his focus is procrastination, Tim also knows a great deal about productivity, whole-hearted living, health and well-being. Why? Well, as Brené Brown has written in her book The Gifts of Imperfection, “we have to talk about the stuff that gets in the way of doing what is best for us.”
Procrastination is one of the things that “gets in the way” of our whole-hearted living, undermining our happiness, health and productivity. As we learn about procrastination, we learn about opening up our lives to more purposeful, engaged ways of being.
What we’ll do next through this website is to provide resources to facilitate change by tackling topics such as: time management (why it’s necessary but not sufficient), emotion regulation, intention setting, habit formation, worry and perfectionism, as well as the central role of mindfulness and self-compassion.
