    Do you procrastinate til the very last minute or are you able to get your work done quickly and finished when it's supposed to be? My attention gets drawn away very fast if I have some kind of a deadline to meet. Music and TB aren't making my job any easier. I've been procrastinating for about two hours on typing a paper about Julius Caesar and doing chemistry homework. Any tips for those of us who procrastinate until its too late?
     
  2. Set yourself personal deadlines that give you the chance to access TB/Bass/whatever for x-amount of time when you've done y-amount of study.

    But seriously...
    I don't usually procrastinate, I used to do it all the time. Now it seems like I save more time just by doing it right away instead of waiting.
     
  4. I do this a lot :meh:
    It seems that, if i don't do it at the last minute i've got, I have no presure on me, and no interest in doing the work... I know it's really bad but I tried doing my work right when i had them and it just didn't work :rollno:

    Procrastination sucks but I found the best way to stop is to just suck it up and do it. Its that simple. Maybe daily schedules work for some but I cant do em so I just suck it up. Thats my solution. Just dont procrasitate. See ya tomorrow.

    I turned everything off except MS Word and sat down and did it. At least I got my paper done. South Park distracted me a bit and now I've just got to finish the chemistry. yargh.

    First I got rid of my TV...now i need to deal with this blasted internet. Honestly, I didn't have a problem last semester, but this semester is difficult. I have a serious probelm. I find that doing it is no problem most of the time, but getting started is the worst part. If you can get started you can finish anything.

    I don't procrastinate. Except for stuff that deserves serious thought. :D
     
  10. I'm procrastinating right now. It's inefficient and illogical, but why would I let that stop me?

    Honestly...I read this thread, then my exact thoughts were, without intentional irony, "Eh, I'll read the rest of the new threads then come back to this one later."

    I procrastinate quite a bit, can you tell?
     
  12. I procrastinate terribly.

    I've even taken it to the point where I don't do my HW at night, except for important stuff(IE papers), but wake up in the morning and do it. I can't do HW at night after 2 years of doing this, I can't concentrate, and things just don't work out in my head :meh:
