I have trouble with procrastination. Always have and I want to change that. This article gave me a good understanding on how to stop my procrastination. I like it because it gives you 15 step and tells you how to do each step. It also explains why to do each step. This site also helps better yourself as well as makes bettering yourself a part of the steps to avoid procrastination. An example of this is, improve learning behavior and learn to forgive yourself. This will not only help in avoiding procrastination but help you in life as well.

This site is designed to help people identify ways to overcome their procrastination so that they can get past their obstacles and succeed.

The site lists the suggestions they have, to combat procrastination, but they are not overly complicated, making it easy to understand. It was very impressive to me that they would not only list the step, but how you can do it, and why it will help you.

I also personally liked that they had graphics to go with. I find people tend to understand, and overall respond to information better if it has pictures to go with it; targets multiple learning forms. I found the bright, bold lettering helpful as well.

I enjoyed reading all 15 of these tips for beating procrastination. Each little box has the title, but below there is a How-to & Why it helps section. Many times I feel like I read tips but they don't dig deep into why it matters exactly. I actually wrote a few of these down and am going to apply it to my studies for the rest of the term.

I think this is a nice colorful way of teaching people how to beat procrastination. I am a very visual learner, so the best way for me to learn is having a very visual thing to look at.

The way the ideas are presented are clear and easy to understand. It gives you enough information to help you understand better. I think the different colors and fonts really help keep your attention and helps you remember the ideas later.

I like the different size fronts because it gives you an idea of what in the next sentences.
