Procrastination D: - April 8th 2012, 07:00 PM

I procrastinate so often I need to finish my essay and I'm either on here, watching Benidorm or doing meaningless tasks (right now I'm changing the folder icons on my Mac)

In my defence the essay isn't due until the 19th but I should really do it now :/

I just can't be bothered. I need tips on how to make myself get off my ass and do it

Hey Ceilidh, nobody is a worse procrastinator than I am I feel your pain. Try breaking it down into smaller pieces and do a little every night until it's due like one page or a certain number of words a night and then put it away and do something else. Getting started is usually the worst part. It might also help to reward yourself with something that you really want to do or get, but only allow yourself to do it AFTER you're done with the essay or a certain amount of it.

I just want to add that I definitely can relate and understand this.
I really like Katie's idea though; think I'll take it too.

I think that's my problem. When I try and do my essay I'll write the whole thing at once I then get pissed off.

Well, I've wrote 200 words now I can play Sims 3

I procrastinate a lot too, it's like the worst habit in the world haha. I like making a rewards system for myself. Write 2 pages, get rewarded with a certain amount of tv/reading time. I usually avoid the internet, because I know for a fact that I will not honor my own time limits
