Before booking a workshop, please make sure that you can attend for the entire duration.



For doctoral researchers and postdocs of all disciplines.


Objectives and Content

Getting things done can be challenging, especially for academics and researchers, who often set their own goals. A lack of external deadlines within the framework of our projects can make it easy for us to put off finishing things that don’t feel urgent, leaving ourselves under pressure and stressed as things pile up. It’s frustrating to put something on the to-do list and find it still there weeks or months later. Discover why we procrastinate and how to manage your tasks effectively. Reduce stress by organizing your to-do list using procrastination-proof methods.


  • Why do we procrastinate? Why do I put certain tasks off and complete others?
  • How can I approach my tasks in a way that helps me to complete them when I want to?
  • What can I do to make sure that I get thing done on time?
  • How can I get past procrastination? What do I do when I find myself putting off tasks?


Further Information

For workshops held online, participation is allowed under the following conditions: a working camera that is turned on and a microphone to allow active participation in discussions and group work. Headphones must also be used to protect other participants from office eavesdroppers. In this context, we would also like to refer to the rules for digital courses at Freie Universität Berlin (Code of Conduct).
