i hate it, the act of procrastinating, it sucks.

Any ideas of how to beat it??

Am i procrastinating when I post about beating my procrastinating??
( :confused: ). No, Im facing it head on but I need some tips from people who have dealt with it, not tips someone who has never had a problem with time management, who speaks down to me as if im the scum of the earth.

Anyways, do u have any tips?

thanks

I find the only thing that works is to use someone else as a way to bring deadlines closer - have someone chase you up about progress on a project on a certain time/date...I usually still put things off until that deadline but it forces me to make some progress instead of leaving *everything* to the last minute.

Yeah but i keep telling myself that it isn't the real deadline, so still don't get it done!!

i suffer from this too, and the only cure i've ever found is to
a)either do every last scrap of anything round the house until you come across something less preferable than the work, making you do the work by procrastinatong against the other crap thing, or

b)leave it 'til the last night before anyway, as thats what you'd do if you DID procrastnate, and saveyourself all the bother, leaving time to do other , more interesting stuff

John Lennon once said "time you enjoy wasting was not wasted". I live by that. But I don't get a lot of work done. So possibly don't take that advice

Actually I think you are in a form of denial here, you are still procrastinating by posting this, take it from the princess of procrastination.
The only way to beat it is to make up your mind to do whatever it is that needs done and do it!
Unfortunately this is much easier said than done.
