Procrastination Busting helps PhDs “be aware of potential pitfalls and how to overcome them”

We hosted a group of PhD students from Edinburgh Napier University on a webinar session entitled Getting Unstuck – Procrastination Busting Techniques.

This webinar provides attendees with some insights into their own personal procrastination habits, ideas to counteract this tendency, and simple short-term techniques to deal with procrastination when it strikes.

Post-training, we asked the group what their favourite part of the session was:

  • “Sharing session of the tips”
  • “The practical techniques to try out”
  • “Discussing [the trainer’s] own experiences and general reflections”
  • “The variety of techniques and approaches that were offered and discussed in regard to overcoming procrastination”
  • “All of it”
  • “[The trainer’s] honesty and humour”
  • “Really interesting to break procrastination down into the different categories”
  • “The final tips”

Other comments from the group included:

  • “Thank you for arranging this!”
  • “[The trainer and moderator] were both very responsive and helpful”
  • “Great session! Many thanks to [the trainer] for conducting this seminar for us!”
  • “Thank you! This was great – especially at the beginning of the PhD – to be aware of potential pitfalls and how to overcome them”
  • “This session was fantastic and useful”
  • “Very insightful”
  • “Very helpful”
