Anti-Procrastination Methods

Recommended Posts

Well, I could throw my computer out of the window.

And possibly go to a doctor and get checked for ADD...I think it might run in the family.

I actually got checked for ADD and didn't have it :blink: I thought I did because I couldn't concentrate in class! I still can't... I wanna get checked again...

:blink:

But if it's not ADD...then what could it be?

I've got an EE idea!

Does the frequency of ADD in IB students have to do with procrastination?

I guess it could be improved...

and would it be Biology?

...or Psychology?

I switch on my computer and open both Firefox and the Word file of the paper I'm writing. I force myself to write a paragraph, then reward myself with a few minutes of web-surfing, and then write another paragraph, and surf some more. It's not really anti-procrastination, but I find myself much more motivated to work.

Usually, I plan out my homework scheduele, but it doesn't really work. I find myself always waiting for the last minute before my assignment is due to do it. Like I'm procastinating from my WL2 right now.

Anti-procrastination methods? I just do everything the night before. I know if its due the next day, that I'm forced to finish it. I think its about self-discipline to not procrastinate. You could bribe yourself with candy or something when you finish your work.

I can never trick my brain into systematically avoiding procrastination. I'm too self-aware, and too defiant to any coercion. What works for me (sometimes) is making myself enjoy the work I'm doing, but then I tend to work way too slowly. Other times, I just tell myself to "do it". When my brain feels like cooperating, this can work. But that's a rarity. :mellow:

That's why the night before was invented.

I hate having the feeling of knowing I have a really big assignment or test to do, so if I have time, I will usually at least make a start on it or I'll try to get most of it done so I can get it over and done with! I tried sticking with that sort of work ethic but it's hard when I have a lot of work to do and I also don't want to lose my social life! And sometimes I will just feel like doing absolutely no homework.

I try to do homework once I get home and whenever I get time to lessen the stress later on. Like sometimes I'll write up study notes if I have a bit of time and know I will have no time to do it later because of other assignments/tests.

Also I find that thinking about all the things I can do after I finish my work, the relief I'll get from finishing the work and knowing I won't have to think about doing it anymore gives me determination to do my work. It's a good incentive :)

Usually when you're trying not to procrastinate it has a boomerang effect, so I try not to think about it and concentrate on the homework I have to do... the Internet usually ruins my plans, though. I think I might ditch the cable.

Anti-procrastination - hmmz. I guess if I work in front of my folks, it helps cause it gets me away from the computer and makes sure I actually do the work (cause if I don't, they'll make me).

But that's to the extreme =P.

Yeah, the computer with internet access is in quite a busy area of the house, which a lot of the time stops me from procrastinating because my parents can see what I'm doing, and I get it done faster because there isn't much peace to be had. Any typing without internet I can do on a little beat-up laptop, in the quiet of my room.
