Being a deadline fighter is a common working pattern in universities. However, it is not always a comfortable way for most of us to get our jobs done. Procrastination makes us stressed and guilty. We struggle with our inner wars while delaying. On top of this, our performance would be limited due to the accumulated workload and our mental state. 


In this talk, @counsellorgwa, Registered Counselor with APCPA, who actively promotes mental health on the internet and built a voluntary counseling team with over 120 student volunteers, would guide you through the journey to 

  • Learn about what sticky thought is 
  • Identify your own thoughts, feelings and body sensations during procrastination
  • Understand our Caveman mind's kind reminders
  • Discover the underlying values of your sticky thoughts; and 
  • Unhook from those sticky thoughts and take the initiative
