    I always tend to let my phone keep me from

    doing anything. Like, taking a shower. My bed is so comfortable I just keep saying "okay five more minutes. Okay ten. I can do it in an hour. Hold on, I gotta reply to this message" Technology always gets the best of me. >.<

    I've been using a book called "The Now Habit"

    which has in it a systematic programme for beating procrastination, and when I first mentioned it I said I'd keep interested people posted on how it's going. Well, I've worked through a number of stages of the programme now, and it's continuing to impress me. One of the latest...

    Someone said I should journal to find out

    why I procrastinate. I think it's just because I don't want to do the thing... What else is there to say? Why do you procrastinate? Because everything else is better than the work I have to do. Maybe I am in the wrong line of work. Or I'm not utilizing my creative genes...

    I've spent this semester making a lot of bad

    (and some good) decisions. At this point, there isn't much time left and I have a whole lot of work to do! I've decided that I'm going to start changing my habits for the better. On weekdays, I usually get to my apartment after classes roughly between 7 and 8, and from there...

    I'm Only Writing This Because I'm Putting Off Doing Important Stuff

    What causes procrastination? I think it is fear.  Fear that I won't be able to complete the task - or do it well enough.  Fear that it may involve me getting my hands dirty or have repercussions. Fear that it may attract criticism.  Fear that it may turn...

    I'm continuing my work with the excellent book

    called "The Now Habit". I've reached a stage in it where it's reinforcing the idea that a lot of the time when our self esteem is low, we use the things we are doing as the source of our self esteem. This can create a lot of anxiety and a drive for perfection, which can itself...

    I procrastinate like crazy.

    I'd love to say that it's an unfortuante side effect of my ADHD tendencies but when you know you're actively avoiding doing something but doing ANYTHING else, you have to admit to yourself that you're procrastinating. And here I am. I just found a great site where I could...

    Time Optimist

    Someone described me as a time optimist. I don't just put things off till the last minute - when the last minute arrives I try to fit in a few other things too - and inevitably end up late! Anyway sounds more positive than "procrastinator" and has an inbuilt excuse!
