Hello (why I came here)


I didn't introduce myself and I've been a member here for about a week.  I kinda wanted to skip this part but I guess this introduction is inevitable at least for me because I need help.  I was searching for something through yahoo because I was looking for a group where people might be accountability partners.  It was a motivational tool that a business I was involved in used a long time ago only it didn't turn out like I hoped it would and it didn't really motivate me.  It seems like the way they did it was backwards (hence the reason it didn't work for me at least).    My personality is the kind that if you say let's go do something like working out and knowing it's healthy I'm not going to say no.  The main issue right now for me though is college and I'm behind, been on probation, and had to appeal and I can't drop out.  If I don't do something different then it will head that way.  So I thought if I came here and worked with some of you we could encourage each other and hopefully contact each other every few days to make sure we stay on track.  If you would be willing to do that please contact me.  Literally like someone else on here I have to grit my teeth to get something done even a little microburst. I've read a lot of material and it doesn't do the trick and it only delays what I really should be doing.  Anyway I'm guessing I've kinda made this message kind of long and hopefully we can talk later.



Welcome timeiz2schort!


I'm in college too, and I just returned after a leave of absence and having a baby. I find checking in to be really helpful because then I have a list in a concrete place and I feel a little more accountable because everyone can see it. I'm really nervous because I have to write two big papers this quarter and even though I'm a great writer I have TERRIBLE time finishing them.

Any other advice might sound cliche or overdone, but getting little things done is really helpful, even if it's just setting my books out where I'm going to see them and be more inclined to look at them.

If you want to talk or need help getting something done, feel free to send me an email!

Good luck :)


Just keep coming back. We all struggle together here and that makes things better. It's encouraging to see strugglers like me making progress. It at least lets me know that progress is possible.

The chat box is the best P buster that I have found when I'm really stuck.

Best wishes to you.

I am also doing post secondary education (right now I am on med leave). This page lists online and phone meetings of P.A.:
(the link is also at the top left of the current page under the 'meeting lists' heading). The chat box is also a good way to focus and stay in touch throughout the day, letting others know what you have done and how far you are from finishing tasks, or obstacles that are hindering you at the moment. There is also the daily to do list under 'Active Forum Topics' that allows users to post and then cross their activities/tasks off as they go. You may find those helpful. You have definitely come to the right place. All the best,
