PutmyNikeson here, back for round 2; the second semester.
Honestly, last semester was a hard-fought battle. I didnt win because I failed two units, but I did learn a helluva lot of lessons which have helped me improve and will help me to develop myself further. The war is not over.
I learnt that most of my procrastination stems from negative self talk. This is a way of justifying laziness, by looking for reasons NOT to do something. The only way to stop this is to catch yourself thinking irrationally negative and to reinforce positive feelings and imagery.
I learnt that talking to someone about your problems (in painfully great detail) helps a lot to put things in perspective, after all if one can alter their perspective they can alter their behavior.
I learnt that I have the power to stop myself from procrastinating, it is not involuntary. Difficult to overcome, but not outside the realm of my control.
I would like to finally thank all on the board who have supported me, I greatly appreciate your kind thoughts. I am back on the website and hope to not improve myself but encourage others to do the same.
Have a productive day,
