    These are tips are ok... But these wouldn't effectively stop me from procrastinating...
    I don't only procrastinate at home..
    What about school or anywhere else for that matter?

    2. Turn Off The Laptop
    Unless you absolutely have to, do not have your laptop/PC on. Now, I know that a lot of people will claim that you need it to do their work, but truly ask yourself if there is any way that you can do without it. I’m sure you’ll find that you can and now you have removed the world’s BIGGEST procrastination tool. Facebook.
    I think TSR is a problem for me now. :indiff:
    I was procrastinating when I was making this post!! (& I am nowhere near home)


    5. Turn The Music Off
    Now I don’t care if you think that you can only work with music in the background or with the television on but this is just not true. All it would take is for one of your favourite songs to come on or a catchy advert to play and you are gone. Back to procrastination city with you. Turn everything off, close yourself into your room and just get on with it. Keeping in mind what you want to get done.
    Bad idea for me. My room is filled with distractions.
    When I have loads of work to do, the sight of my bed makes me want to procrastinate (especially if I didn't rest well the previous night)


    For me: Procrastination seems incurable.

    Yeah hey good little piece. What you say about 'reasonable goals' and 'planning' is really good. If I just say "I'm going to spend the day doing this..." it's never half as effective as if I split it up loads - 15/30 mins on this, then this etc.

    I have a question though, too. The problem with 'turn your laptop off' is that the internet is really helpful for revision, if you're doing it at university level say, or you might need microsoft Word, etc. I've tried to block sites (facebook, youtube, porn), but then that's stupid because I only have to type in a password to unblock them again. I suppose (epiphany!) you could get a friend to set the password, so only they can unblock them again after exams or whatever. But is there a way to set a timer, to temporarily block sites or anything?

    Didn't get enough "praise" from your other thread so you thought you'd post the same again?

    Sigh.

    Yawn all these guides are the same and its basically 'just stop procrastrinating'.

    The only cure is to go back in time to visit your childhood self and parents and get them to change whatever they're doing to make you so lazy and apathetic give you some work ethic.

    That and only do things you're interested in, I'm never put off watching a film, tv or playing epic amounts of computer games.
