It is a great point that keeping organized really helps you to stay on task. Keeping a clean organized study space makes it easy to find what you need to get right to work. De-chunking is also important for me. If i break up my larger assignments into smaller pieces, they feel less overwhelming. If I'm organized and not overwhelmed a find it much easier not to put off my studies.

WOW! This resource was amazing! I am a very organized person who also stays on task- so I wasn't sure if this topic was going to be beneficial for me to read or not, and boy was I wrong.

I had no idea that a form of procrastination was not observed by the one procrastinating, but by others close to that person. That's me!! Others around me who procrastinate cause me extreme anxiety. I understand now how important it is to identify the fears I associate with others who procrastinate, so I determine the sources of those fears and their effects on my self-esteem. Again, this resource was great!

This was a good insight on procrastination. As these tasks are being attended to, however, other tasks begin to pile up, and soon a backlog of tasks cry out for attention. A jumble of new and old tasks become marked as urgent, and the procrastinator is forced to drop current tasks to attend to the urgent ones. That's what I do everyday and still need to work on it.
