I'm a HUGE procrastinator.  Ideally, I would have short-term deadlines within my long-term deadline.  For instance, if I had to write a 10 - 15 page term paper by May, I would have deadlines of writing a page or two a week, so that in the end all I would have to do if proof-read the paper.  I did that, once.  It helped.  It also helps to make a list of tasks.  I start with easier tasks; that way I don't feel overwhelmed.  I get encouraged by seeing my completed tasks.

If I were consistent, I'm sure that I would be OK.  But, I'm not.  I need to take some of my own advice LOL and send out these e-mails..

Probably.

That's part of the reason why I hate phone calls...I have an aversion for bad news...or worry about my work not measuring up...or worry about what might happen.

But then I know when I get things done early or on time I feel so much better. I'm trying to have more of that feeling.

if I'm at work then I take a walk, If I am at home then I go to the library


This works for me. Esp when I use to be in uni,I just a lot more done in library than I ever do at home. I guess when I was in library my brain didn't try to play any games, it knew it was time to work.
