Me in a 15 minute talk, essentially.

 

Meta-procrastination

(superior) procrastination where one creates activities for procrastination, then procrastinate in performing them

 

Compensatory conviction

Development of a passion for something that distracts you from your current serious uncertainty on what to do next

 

Zeigarnik effect

How we have a better memory for incomplete rather than complete tasks because you check off the latter to forget about it

 

Getting-into time

Time it takes you to get back into something from where you left off

 

Idea Doubt

Doubt that is energizing because it causes you to want to test, experiment, and refine, to get it right, knowing the first batch will almost always be crappy

 

Vuja De

Is when you look at something you’ve seen many times before and all of a sudden see it with fresh eyes
