also new here
Hi, I'm Nicole and I'm a chronic procrastinator. I found a link to this site on a time-management site (markforster.net), one of the ways in which I procrastinate.
I've known for a couple of years now I have a problem, but reading the stuff on this site made me realize I've had this problem since I was 8 years old (about 40 years ago... :(). Back then, in elementary school, I was an A-student as long as I got clear assignments; anything requiring my own judgment scared the hell out of me and made me procrastinate.
My reasons for procrastination have shifted over the years, right now it's mainly overwhelm for tasks that involve talking to people or demand resistance for tasks I don't particularly enjoy, but overall the habit has become nastier than ever. So I've come here in hope of finding some support to help me overcome this habit. The daily check-ins seem like a good start, and I'm also tempted to join in kromer's June Jump.
Thanks for creating this board, hope to be back!!

chat is fabulous!
Just tried the chatbox to at least be productive for the last half hour at work today. I'm impressed, making myself accountable that way definitely works!!
Wow, thanks for all the quick replies! And thanks for the chat-suggestions, sounds good.
You'll find help here
this site has helped me tremendously. The daily Check Ins are good for an over all goal for the day. If you need more intense, minute by minute support the chat works wonders. For me setting new goals every 15 minutes and checking in there has really helped overcome the symptoms of overwhelm.
Welcome and good luck to you!
