little story about the power of priorities. good morning to you. charlotte, i want to begin with you. why do we procrastinate? are we prewired to do it? >> there's an element of evolution that's actually here which i think is fascinating. i mean, basically we're creatures of survival. if we're given a task, whatever it is, it might be cleaning a dirty bathroom, which is boring, arduous, it might be doing, you know, writing an article such as the one i did which i definitely procrastinated on. it induces anxiety. it might induce self-doubt. and those feelings are uncomfortable. a researcher i spoke with, tim pitchel, said that we all have this inner 6-year-old. the feeling that we feel is i don't want to do this. >> yeah. >> and that's -- that's really profound emotion. and we think of ourselves as being lazy, but i think there's a lot of comfort to be drawn from the fact that this is so universal. and -- >> it's so illogical. i remember having this discussion with my daughter sitting at the end of her bed when she wasn't doing her homework and explaining, i've done this, i can tell you where it ends, it's not --
8:34 am
>> yeah. >> she said, but why did you do it? i said, i never figured that part out. >> right. >> just don't. but i mean, but why -- why are you punishing your future self for the present? >> well, because we like to feel good in the present. and you know, often as she was saying, it is about anxiety. it's really hard to try our best and still possibly fail at things. whereas if we put something off to the last minute, we know we didn't do our best. it's a little bit easier on the ego if we don't do our best work. >> you are a time management expert who was once late to your own time-management session. >> i was. >> there's irony there. i think you make time for things that are important to you. is that not true? >> it is so true. i mean, whenever we say i don't have time, we're really saying it's not a priority. >> yes. >> if something is important, you will make it happen. if somebody offers you something good that will make it rise up the priority list, you will make it happen. the joke -- i don't feel like
8:35 am
dusting my blinds. if somebody offered to pay me $100,000 to dust my blinds -- >> i would figure out a way to do it. you give the great example, compare it to a broken hot water heater. about how we figure stuff out. >> yeah. well a lady who tracked her time for me once had a very busy week. and then her water heater breaks. there's water all over her basement. >> right. >> she finds seven hours to deal with this problem. if we'd asked her at the start of the week can you find seven hours to train for a triathlon, flow way we could find the time. but you have to. >> i was interested by you said it's an emotional thing. and that we shouldn't really beat ourselves up about this. >> i mean, i think those are -- there are two points that you're saying. the first part is it is emotional. i think your question about the future self, we are creatures of survival, as i said. and i think, you know, if you're being chased by a tiger, you're not thinking about preparing dinner that evening. you're dealing with what's right there. and that is fear, that is i got to get the heck out of here.
8:36 am
similarly, we're actually wired to deal with the present problem. our brains aren't really thinking like i'm just dreading cleaning this bathroom. we're thinking like i feel kind of unsafe right now. and i don't want to do this. >> men are wired differently. i had this conversation with my stepdaughter in college. she and her roommate were preparing for a test. my stepdaughter studying throughout the week. the roommate crammed the night before. they both did well. are some better at performing under pressure last minute? >> i think more people think they're better at performing well under pressure at the last minute than actually are. and maybe it can work for a test sometimes if -- if it gets you to tune out instagram and all those things like that. but if you're trying to do creative work, for instance, leaving it to the last minute means you probably won't come up with all the different scenarios, you won't think about what can go wrong. whereas if you leave time to come back to it, you can do a better job. >> what's interesting to me is the vicious cycle that gets created. usually when you put something off, you feel bad about yourself, which makes you behavior badly further. and it just spirals down.
8:37 am
and i remember in that conversation i had with my daughter, i said, if you just stop this, forgive yourself for kind of screwing up it all changes. but we still -- it's hard to get over that. >> the self-compassion you were writing about. >> yeah. there are thousands and thousands of studies about this. i mean, if we actually take a moment and say, you know, i -- i do this, i put my hands like on my heart a lot of the time and say, you know what, it's okay, and if i were talking to a friend, i wouldn't say, you know, you're such an idiot for putting off whatever it is -- >> give us one recommendation, one. >> start small. take some part of the project that you feel no resistance to doing. you're writing a report, maybe it's that you know you'll put one statistic in the middle. write it down. see how that feels, and probably that wasn't so bad. and maybe there's another quote you can put in. you don't feel so bad about that. and maybe there's something you think of in the middle, next thing you know, it's half done. you tricked yourself into it. >> procrastination is not something you outgrow. you deal with it throughout life. a human thing. >> yes. >> a human thing. >> laura, charlotte, thank you

8:43 am
school. good morning, what's up, baby, good morning. >> reporter: some of cook's kid, he calls them all his babies, weren't showing up because they were wearing dirthy clothes and getting bullied. >> i think we put the microscope on basic needs of kids like -- everyone wants the high test scores, everyone wants them to pbut if the kid don't feel confidence in just coming to school and being that person that we know they can be, then what are we doing? >> reporter: before you raised % the s.a.t. scores, how about giving somebody some clean clothes? >> there you go. fight for that baby the way you want them to fight on that test. the famous washers and dryers. >> reporter: today, west side has five commercial-grade washers and dryers. desean denny and brianna singleton use them all the time. >> when we first got it, i won't lie, i was scared to bring my clothes. when i went to cook, i asked can i use the land mat, he was like, no, you're going. we're a family in here, you can bring it any time you want. >> we have a test in two weeks --
8:44 am
>> reporter: principal cook who grew up in newark also started a program called lights on. he opens his school from 6:00 to 11:00 p.m. onnis from during the school year and three nights a week during the summer. >> 6:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. you're supposed to be home, doing homework, sleeping. >> that's not the case. my babies are taking care of younger siblings. parents have to take odd joseph biden or aren't there -- odd jobs or aren't there at all. >> reporter: they use the gym, enjoying warm meals. a long way from what west side was a few years ago. >> in this line of work, i have to feed it. if i lose, i could lose a kid's life. you have to just keep pounding the pavement. i'm not this genius. my babies came with a school, and i have to help navigate it. >> even though we're students, he treats us more like we're his child. we can come in with a bad day, we talk to him, he makes our day better. >> reporter: that's pretty cool. >> yes. it's dope. >> good morning, mr. cook -- >> good morning, how you doing?
8:45 am
>> reporter: it might seem hard to believe that one person could clean up a school and a whole neighborhood, but in newark, the proof is in the principal. >> this is selfless work that we do. no one goes into education thinking they're going to get rich. >> reporter: you're not getting a medal at the end of the day. >> no, but i have a gold medal around my heart for the love the kids give back and the families and communities are taking it one step further. i can't -- you're giving my goosebumps, jeff. >> we're getting them here, too. >> gave us goosebumps. >> right? you can tell he's rooting for every kid. what inspired him? >> as educators in the family, his aunts were teachers. they drifted until -- he drifted until he found his calling. now it is 24/7. this is anything but a 9 to 5 job. he's there at night, on the weekends, thinking about the kids constantly. >> that must be huge. when you help a kid like that.
8:46 am
>> that's the thing, he said, i didn't go into this to get rich. i go into it to be rewarded by helping kids and seeing how they succeed down the road. >> let's say this -- how many people have a gold medal around their heart and people to that? >> akbar cook does. >> he calls all the students his babies. >> yes. >> i liked that little gray patch, too. >> got a 20-year-old son, he calls his baby, too. >> if i was 20 i don't know how i'd feel. >> great story. thank you. >> good to see you againguys. >> we'll be right back. you're watching "cbs this morning."
