If you are a procrastinator you will always be! There really isn't a way to fix it...if you know you can do something by the due date and wait until the last minute then you will...all you will do is get better at it over time, learning just how late you can delay and not be "Late" with the project because you procrastinated too long! Once it is time to buckle down and get to work, you must remove all distractions...Ask.com, people, etc and just get it done! The funny thing is, I find myself most productive when I am super swamped because I don't have time to wander! Some have suggested calendars and daily planners...but that hasn't really worked for me.
i quit school when i was 16 and would try to go back but everytime when it got hard id just quit i wasnt taking the g.e.d test or anything i was just taking the classes but finally i said you know what im just going to see how much i know so i started this online school but i didnt take any of the classes i just jumped right into the highschool diplomia test and i was actually suprised at how much i knew well lastnight i finally graduated by doing it like that... you just have to make up your mind to ok well this has to be done for me i knew that it had to be done to make a better life for my disabled husband myself and our future children because he cant work and i cant make very much without a diplomia so i just sat down with them in mind and took the test and now im a highschool graduate
If I knew I wouldn't still be doing it.Some of us can procrastinate and get away with it. me. others can't and will be in enormous poop. presumably you. When I actually decide to get things done, they're done. I just have a hard time working on something I'm not passionate about. Or I come home and I'm mentally exhausted because I put every ounce of my being into the things I was good at and now I'm too tired to make it through the end of the day without nap time.

I also have a tendency to procrastinate but I solve it by making a list of all things pending. I review the list from time to time and check the things most pressing. I take care of them one at a time. Even things so small as "call your sister." While working on the most pressing things, I even do a few small things, laying groundwork for the other things on the list. Before you know it, I have finished the list and my satisfaction has hit the sky. Reward enough! Then I can do a few things I really am interested in.
-Create a list of all objectives to your project. Each day until it's due, do a few of the objectives and maybe even complete more than you should one day. If you stay on track, you should be able to complete the project without a large hurry. If it's school related, do big objectives on the weekends when you have more free time and small objectives on the weekdays. How do you eat an elephant? - piece by piece -. - S. R. Wahs - 1/17/2013

the thing about us procastinators is that really we are perfectionists who are afraid to make a decision about anything. we over think everything to the point of exhaustion and become easily overwhelmed, leaving us not knowing what to do first and we never seem to finish anything we start. the best thing i would suggest to do to correct this awful mindset is to...
Hi! Think about.... for just a sec... don't get fixated :) on how much of your life you are missing by putting off something that can be done right now! By the time you get the 1st thing done, have something else you are ready to do. Also, once you finish it, don't go back and change it. You can't! You're late! You're already late and have procrastinated about the very next thing you must do! :) :)
