In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

    +SkypeYouSoon I have a small snack and water beside me while studying. But i end up eating it continuously until it is finished, with no attention to studying, then get up to go get more!

  37. Nimity Tei sagt:

    +SkypeYouSoon this works man

  38. I Love Creativity sagt:

    I am procrastinating by watching videos how to stop procrastination

  39. SkypeYouSoon sagt:

    1. Turn on music to quietly play in the background.
    2. Get rid of all close distractions.
    3. Have a small snack and water or drink near you so you don’t get up for any reason.
    4. Start on something for just five minutes.  Five minutes is the time it takes for you to actually get hooked onto finishing a task.  Just think about only spending five minutes on the task and try your best to finish.
