New guy here..
I am suffering from Chronic procrastination. I took off from my Job so that i could prepare for an exam for the betterment of my life, but due to procrastination even after 1YEAR i yet to complete the exam. Now I lost my Job also. Please help me to overcome this procrastination. I have to clear this exam and then look for a new Job. I know i have necessary skills to prepare for the exam, only problem is i am procrastinating indefinitely. I read the few articles such as magic bullet, Procrastinators Anonymous - Tools for Recovery. But still i kindly request you guys to guide me to clear my exam and get a new job. I am at the worst state of my life. I have lost a lot due to procrastination. Thank you in advance.
I use to procrastinate by browsing, reading unnecessary stuff not related to my preparation, watching movies, videos. So the first step i did is listed down necessary websites for my preparation plus few others suchas mail, this forum links and added them to my antivirus software. So my antivirus does not allow any other website other than those listed there, which is password proctected with a password that only my girlfriend knows. The same i did for all the movies and novels in my computer, protected with a password that only she knows. So basically i don't have any other procrastination activity to do other than sleeping. I am completely locked down myself for this preparation, so no disturbance from friends other than speaking on phone. The only person i can see is my girlfriend who is very supportive for my prepartion so she won't be problem. Let's see how things move on from here.
