I currently work by cleaning a radiology clinic after it closes. What I
notice is, due to having the option to go anytime after it shuts down
(until it opens) I procrastinate much more than in a normal job. I’ll say
I’m going at 10 PM, definitely. I end up going at 1 AM, somehow..

Well, the “remove temptation” way is not effective at all, because when you
procrastinate, you avoid something you don’t *want* to do, not something
you don’t like, but something you *want* , so if you’re doing your stuff,
with no temptations, you’ll just end up making nothing. Walking in your
room, stressing, watching the roof, or even lay down on your bed, being
tired about procrastinating, which leads you to stress, depression, and
overthinking.

*Carpe Diem!!!*
Among the proposed solutions is the Pomodoro technique, a time-management
method similar to timeboxing that uses timed intervals of work and reward.

perceived to be — meaning, the further away the reward is, the more you
discount its value. This is often referred to as Present bias, or
Hyperbolic discounting”.

Bah. I have to get my math assignment done. I’ve been working on it for 4
hours just because of procrastinating and I’m not even half way done. I
already took an extra 5 minutes just reading the comments 🙁 I’m ashamed

I just want to say I wasn’t PROCRASTINATING when I watched this video.. I
was, um, doing research. Yeah. For an article I might write. Like, one
day… maybe next month. Or, eh, in a year and one month. Either one.

Fakenit66 says:

Making a list of reasons of why you want to complete the goal? That sounds
a lot like procrastination to me. X)

Kate says:

I give myself one nothing day a week so that I don’t become too stressed,
and it works well for me… but after watching this on this week’s nothing
day I feel like I should be doing something productive instead of relaxing
:S

i use some techniques stated here……but when you’re in a group, or with
a partner, they can be contagious and procrastinating is more fun.

zhoobin molavi says:

right now, the reason i’m procrastinating is because when i see the end

question, i’ll ask it on facebook.
