the only way to really do this is to divide each of the goals on my list into small steps, and actually DO those, one at a time. 2 days ago

I can’t stop procrastinating “tomorrow”, because that’s just more procrastination. 3 days ago
I have so much on my plate, I feel like I am constantly working at things. Part of what I’m doing involves research and reading a lot of articles. Information out there is endless so I’m continually doing it but it feels like I’m only scratching the surface. 3 days ago
I think this may be the most important goal of my “43” because if allowed to continue, this horrible, toxic habit could keep me from completing the rest. Procrastination might be the sole reason I don’t do very well in school. I have a very hard time sitting down, starting my work, and finishing it when there are so many other things I’d like to be doing. The truth is, when I really get moving, I can get things done in hours which under my normal circumstances might take me days, even weeks.
But as most procrastinators can agree with, it’s never as easy as we make it out to be. That deadly “five more minutes” mindset eats away at discipline and resolve, slowly at first but soon it gets out of hand and we can find ourselves completely lost. I’ve let it get out of hand. I’ve let the little Facebook visits, Youtube videos, and just about any other activity become more important to me than finishing the work I start. This simply will not do if I can ever hope to succeed in school.
So, my plan has already been pushed into motion. I’ve begun the old trick of timing myself. Giving myself 45 minutes of solid work time, followed by 15 of whatever, allows me to have an immediate “carrot at the end of the stick” as it were. I find myself happier when I take the breaks because I’ve shed the guilt of going off-topic and I’ve also gotten the 45 minutes of solid work down, which I desperately need. So that’s step one.
The second step involves discipline. There’s really nothing stopping me from pressing the pause button on my timer and taking a quick 5 minute scan of the Facebook newsfeed or checking my emails other than my own resolve. That’s all well and good, but the fact is my resolve needs work. I like the feeling of success, especially when it comes after I put in decent, honest effort and that’s a feeling I want more often.
The third step is just hunkering down and putting pen to paper. That’s what I need to do and it shouldn’t be as hard as it is, so why make it be? 1 week ago
I hope it doesnt take 5 years to stop procrastination! If so, I am in trouble! But I agree, I have been working for 1 year already and I am not at one hundred percent yet. 1 week ago
This is something that I had a difficult time with.
