Procrastinators Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from chronic procrastination.


Edge and Elisaveth had a great suggestion!

My office is noisy so I keep my mp3 player nearby and listen to music when I need to concentrate.  Here is some music that I find motivating.  What do you guys listen to? 

Warning: a few of these lyrics are fairly explicit.  I might be a grandmother but I still rock.

New song additions

Hi, guys.
I edited this post and added a few more songs :-)

- Hey There Delilah, Plain White Ts
- Into the Ocean, Blue October
- Song 2, Blur

Also, if you're in a more morose mood, check out Marilyn Manson's "Sweet Dreams".

Nothing diminishes anxiety faster than action - Walter Anderson

Another song

I'm listening to this right now and thought I'd add it:

- Unwritten, Natasha Bedingfield

This is one of the few songs that uplifts my spirits and makes me feel hopeful about life :-) I highly recomend listening to it, especially the words.

re: Playlists

Thanks for starting this, Journey! I'm not familiar with some of those songs, but I will be checking them out soon :grin:

If we're talking about heavy work that needs a lot of concentration, then I recommend the following artists:

- Dido
- Kristen Hersh
- Apocalyptica
- Cold Play
- Tchaikovsky
- Beethoven
- Nirvana
- Loreena Mckennitt
- Massive Attack
- Ray Charles
- Muddywater
- Any not-too-crazy songs you're not too familiar with, so you don't find yourself singing or humming along

If we're talking about light work, then that's a completely different story :grin: will put together a list of specific songs that get rid of the office gloom tomorrow after my exam :-)

nirvana's awesome!  I love all their music except for that one stupid song about eating mashed potatoes at grandma's house.



Hehe, I actually don't mind that one :-D Was conditioned to worship all things Nirvana as a kid, so even if I wanted to, I couldn't hate any of their work :rolleyes: Granted though, they do have a few not-quite-spot-on songs, but overall you gotta love 'em :-)
