iProcrastinate Podcast
Why we procrastinate and what we can do about it.
 
Manana? Procrastination in Peru

What we might consider procrastination varies around the world. Take the word mañana for example - that notion that a task belongs to some indefinite time in the future. Do we all think about delay and procrastination the same way? Obviously not!

In this conversation with  a colleague from Peru, Professor Karem Diaz, we get a different perspective on the nature of our delay. We discuss some differences between collectivist and individualistic cultures, the influence of economic development, social class and indivdual differences. I know you'll find it interesting.

I close the podcast with a song entitled "Procrastination" by Matt Weidinger. Let me know what you think at tpychyl@procrastination.ca.
