    Hi Yeah I suffer from the same thing, however what I tend to do is pretend that I'll do a little bit of the task and not take it too serious then when I have started I always tend to finish.. The trick is to start because once you can convince yourself to take one step forward before you know it you've completed your task!

    Hope that helps
    Good luck.

    Keep thinking about the negative outcomes that will happen if you continue to procrastinate, i.e. 'If I don't revise for this exam, then I'll fail'.

    I procrastinate all the time. Mind you, my procrastination habits are getting a bit better now that I'm in university. I remember in high school I would leave all of my assignments until the last minute, and then rush through them, which caused me to almost flunk. Thankfully, I've learned from that mistake.

    I also find setting tiny goals for the week helps too. For example:

    If I get these chapters read/notes made by the end of the week, I can treat myself to a coffee, hang out with friends, see a movie, etc.

    If I don't reach that goal, then I can't do any of those things.
