Hi comrades,

Now I am procrastinating. It's seems that procrastination is an increasingly psicological problem in our society, specially young people.

I personally had procrastinated too much in my life agravated by my OCD (obsession with that activity), Generalized Ansxiety Disorder (that increases my anxiety to do the hard thing) and partial insomnia (so, I procrastinate to very late, that harms my sleep). I achieved, with +10 ten times more of time of the average, write my final work for University. Now I think I will not be able to write a couple of "easy" articles to a institution interested in me, pointing to me as garbage.

Did the same when I was in the Communist Party Youngs and must read a lot of directives, to read and take notes of political, history and philsophy books, etc.

Did you procrastinate /edu/? If you did and now not, how the heck you broke this vicious circle of improductiviy?

Just get something, anything down on paper or word processor
Even if It's just a series of dot points under various headings or you record your self rambling on the topics thinking out loud and transcribe it then come back and report to us lad

Pic related worked for me, it's much easier to start if you know that you can stop after a fixed duration instead of attempting a potentially endless marathon. It also helps with focus and distractions. Just make sure to adjust the working time, I started at just 15 minutes and gradually made it longer and longer.

For writing, specifically, when I get stuck I like to set a timer for 5 minutes and just write anything that comes to my mind during that time. Without any editing or going back. After the time is over I edit it and usually end up throwing much of it out but it helps to get some momentum.

I also have severe issues with this. Having this thread here, and knowing other comrades are in similar ruts, kind of soothes the sore.

I will try my best to address this problem with the help of the resources found ITT so far.
I had, for example, downloaded a pomodoro >>558 applet for my computer, but never used it. I think I'll start giving it some tries.
