 I think I've been putting off adding my first comment here...

 So I'm a student in high school (which seems to be younger than almost everyone here, so yay for early action), and up untill now I've been able to get pretty good grades, but it's been stressful. Now getting even six hours of sleep is rare for me. So I'm always in a vicious cycle of putting off work, staying up too late as a result, then being too tired to be productive the next day, etc..

 I'm always so intimidated by large projects that I can't get myself to start them untill the deadline is within a few days away. I have this feeling that what I write has to be perfect, and annoying writers-block ensues. 

 For my own health and sanity, this has to stop.

Here's to this being the first step in the right direction.



I hope this early start at identifying a problem helps you to get it figured out so you can focus on doing what you need to do when you should do it so you can enjoy life! 

keep it up!

Hi Isha!

Welcome to PA. I recognise that feeling completely.

When completely stuck on where to start I've taken to using the Getting Things Done question "what is the very next thing you could do to progress this project?".  In my case, the answer is often "get the file out" or "get a sheet of paper out and write down the first things that come into my head that I want to put in the report".  I daren't let myself think any further ahead that that or I'll freeze, but something that small seems doable and often breaks the paralysis.

 Good luck anyway

Welcome, one thing about this issue of procratination it does not discriminate ( regardless of age,sex, race, ethnicity, nationality, sexuality ,religion and political views, net worth, social status, educational background, etc., etc.)

A responsible person is not a victim to their  circumstances.  How you respond to circumstances today WILL determine your circumstances tomorrow.

You are not alone anymore, keep coming back.



Thanks Vic. I definitely will. 

Hi Krios!

Welcome! As an older person (52) I wish I had recognised my problem with procrastination when I was much younger.

So joining us at a younger age is great! You're in good company here. Smile

Welcome, Krios

Welcome to Procrastinators Anonymous!  This is a great program!.. There are signs that I related to and there are Tools I can apply.  I also use the Forum to write my list and I go on the chatbox to share my tasks to do.  I also go to a couple of online PA meetings and I go to the telephone meetings three days a week. 

Most of all, keep coming back!
