This is my absolute favorite video about the "monkey mind." A TED Talk by Tim Urban: Inside the mind of a mater procrastinator. He actually calls it "Instant Gratification Monkey" and it's in battle with the "Rational Decision-Maker" to control the wheel of the ship. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=arj7oStGLkU

What I learned is that the instant gratification monkey is not bad... he just wants to do things that are easy and fun... like, all the time. Learning how to get the monkey in my head.... and the rational decision maker to "work together" is the magic trick! They don't need to be enemies. They can have fun AND get stuff done... together.
