Make a Monster list :
Make a list of all the scary tasks that I am avoiding (hence 'monsters').
2. Assign priorities to the tasks without getting emotionally involved. Imagine that I am assigning them to someone else. This is to make sure that I'm not tricking myself into...
that I was dreading and it didn't go very well but it was far far less scary than I had made it out to be!! I know exactly what to expect and know where to improve for a round 2 . Not postponing was the best decision I made :) sometimes you just have to face your fear.
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!
I found this some time ago and was planning to post it but...........1. I believe that if anything is worth doing, it would have been done already.2. I shall never move quickly, except to avoid more work or find excuses.3. I will never rush into a job without a lifetime of...
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. >.<
and by procrastinating I have wasted 2.5 months and haven't prepared well. I have an option to reschedule by tomorrow or write it in a week anyway .Now I'm in this fix :

3 weeks ago, I made a list of all ways in which I procrastinate. Major time killer and escape mechanism for me turned out to be my addiction to watching TV shows. So , I decided to quit. No middle path , balance etc ..just quit ! It has been 3 weeks and the result has...
Getting myself out of bed
Shopping (unless it's for beer, I get that done right away)
Replying to comments on my stories
Returning phone calls
Organizing all the files only computer
Cleaning my room
I equate procrastination to an addiction and as other addicts show symptoms, so do we . Here are a few things I have noticed about myself .
1. I believe I need to prepare to be perfect and given a choice , I'll stretch the prep time as far as I can. So much time will be...
means of procrastination. There is something else I should be doing. There is always something else I should be doing!
I am currently in the middle of writing my master's thesis. Actually, that's not true. The rest of my class are in the middle of it. Or are probably almost...
After reading the first few pages , I felt as if I was narrating the story! It was as if the author had plucked pages from my diary! It costs just a few dollars for the kindle edition. If anyone has a procrastination problem , they should really try going through this once.
for about a year now. o_O I have found a recipe and might actually get around to it before this month is over. and I'm not going to do it all half-assedly either. I'm pretty sure baking is the only thing I really try at, maybe only because I'm going to have to eat it after.
What causes procrastination?

I realised this over the weekend . I had myself all figured out and I had a plan in place but Friday evening comes and well...I'm back to doing nothing on Saturday.I observed few flaws in my approach to beat procrastination :
1. If I stare at my top priority task for 30min and...
about Procrastination and how It affects academic performance last semester as a final project. The real sad funny part that even though I chose the topic 3 months before the due date, I had done from it 5 hours before the submission date!
Got to organize a garage sale for neighbor, prepare for scout camp, make sure everyones training hasn't expired.... Hey thats not so bad. I gotta stop this stinking thinking that everything is going to be so difficult! Just do it you baby! It usually turns out simpler than i...
