  1. What is being discussed in the video? Explain your answer.
    The video discussed about why we still procrastinate even we know that it is bad for us. From the video I found that people who procrastinate are not always lazy people. Procrastination is the result of our bodies trying to protect us by avoiding a task we see as threatening. Laziness is marked by no energy and general apathy for example sitting around and doing nothing. People procrastinate because they care too much and they have a high fear of failure, putting things odd because they are afraid that the result of their work is not the same as their standards. Besides, I found that procrastinating can temporarily reduce our stress levels because reinforcing it as a bodily response for coping with stressful tasks.

  6. Explain how this article will help contribute to your larger group project.
    I was wondering why procrastinating can reduce stress level, so I search an article about it and I find in solvingprocrastination.com. It said that procrastinating to reduce the stress often means that the procrastinator is really only postponing that stress, and is actually just “borrowing” temporary peace of mind, which their future self has to pay back with interest in the long term. DIfferent when someone is fine with postponing things indefinitely, or until the deadlines for those things pass and they no longer need to be done; this can allow the procrastinator to reduce the total stress that they feel, but can cause other serious issues, such as a continuous failure to achieve goals.

When we put off doing something, we feel guilty, and that guilt makes sure the tasks stays on our mind which activates the supersonic jigsaw puzzle. This puzzle process happens in our brains at supersonic speed. Everything we see, hear, and read becomes a potential piece of that jigsaw. then it turns into a piece that we looking for to fill our puzzle. I thinks it is like looking for inspiration and find something that relate to our problems of our work or assignment. In the back of our minds were rapidly examine every little piece, turning them around and trying to find some common shapes or themes that might fit our puzzle some pieces might be thrown away as irrelevant others might be set aside in case they fit a part of the puzzle somehow until at last, we find a crucial piece and once that piece slots into our puzzle all of a sudden we start the entire picture in the perform of a new idea or a strategy or maybe just the perfect turn of phrase and from there all the pieces of our supersonic jigsaw puzzle start to come together. supersonic jigsaw puzzle makes our works have a great/better results as we finish it til the last minute of deadline.
