    I tend to procrastinate too….What works for me is breaking a huge project down into manageable chunks. Each time I conquer a chunk, I reward myself. It’s motivating and it works!

    im the same, procrastinated all the way through finals revision. you should try to set yourself targets – find a way to make yourself work productively. cut off the internet, switch off the tv!

    Way too much, sometimes to my financial cost. It will be the same for you if you do not burn the midnight oil and get this done. I have many times wished that I were better at self discipline. Some have the theory that people like us work better under great pressure: that could be true to a point, but …you better get going there.
