He mentioned all these tips where we probably heard of them previously but he never told us how he applied it on his life to succeed. Wasted 20 minutes.

Short version: We procrastinate because the self preservation part of our brain takes over when we're feeling anxious about certain tasks, and makes us avoid those tasks to keep us safe. You can get around this by setting goals and timeframes, and tackling small parts at a time. DON'T LET YOUR BRAIN DESTROY YOUR PRODUCTIVITY!

He said that, if you prepare everything needed for your studies you can't make an excuse of going to google as an excuse to being lazy......he must have not met someone like me before....

The ultimate problem for motivation is listening to the wrong voice in your head. The mastery of ones emotions leads to freedom and motivation to achieve. Learning to recognise the ego is primarily the way to achieve all Vik speaks on with out the strategies required to motivate oneself. When you recognize and know who you really are motivation comes naturally. It is not something you need to work at. Blessings.

The irony here is that he didn't seem that prepared to give this presentation, probably procrastinated too much.
