Well done! Try to think about what ypu would like to do tomorrow. Not in a worrying way, but just to make plans for the next day. Trust me, it really works to get things done. And make a small to do list, break the big tasks into smaller parts and
Cross them of when you are finished with them, one by one. Very satisfying!
yes, Lieteke, exactly! :) I have planned out what I want to achieve each day for the next two weeks or so! I wrote it in my diary and marked it in on my calendar too and I am going to try and stick with it.
The exercise made me realise that time is actually quite tight for me to complete my project on time so I really need to keep up with the schedule. . . I'm afraid the to do list isn't so small but it was very satisfying to mark things off my list
today. Everything was quicker than I anticipated which was great. I think I built up everything in my head because I spent too long at this section of the project so it began to feel neverending. planning out my time has helped me refocus and
emphasised a need for prioritising, being productive and efficient!
Thanks for your support & tips :D
Shat helps me as well is telling people what I plan to do today, or this week. When I say it to others, I feel I have to do it, as I don't want to look like the person who never delivers 😀
Today I will try to make a list of sub-tasks and fit them in on my calendar. Hoping that will help me face up to reality a bit. Though I also anticipate fear. 😕
I've got the same problem, but don't have any great tips. Making lists is definitely a good start but I never know how to progress from that.

Thanks Lydia and John! John, I'm afraid that my phone is not the problem! I find many ways to distract myself when I procrastinate - reading, doing crossword puzzles online on the laptop I use to work, sometimes just sitting doing nothing! :P :/
But I got started today which is good! :D
If you're able to work in chunks of an hour or more at a time, then try to get started early in the day, plan to work up to a certain point and then take a good break, especially if you're planning to work until lunch or dinnertime :)
That way you have something to look forward to. Going for a walk or talking to a friend might also be a good break to use up some of that energy you might otherwise use to procrastinate. :)
Also good luck and congrats on getting started!
Forgive yourself - all you can do is try again tomorrow!
Thanks all! 😊
wishing you rest, and with rest, clarity
Thanks for the nice wishes Love1 and thanks all!
You can handle it! Even if it doesn't all get done, you'll make some progress
The schedule will help 👌🏾
I didn't write the schedule yet 😢
I've been there. It's hard to stay motivated :(
Sounds like youre agitated and craving peace, rest, maybe freedom. Project is temporary... so are our mood states- whether positive, negative or neutral.
Goals can be revised and reset. You are in control. Adapt to the current situation.
Thanks everyone. Lulu, that's good advice , thanks! 😊
I suppose it was good I did some work after school everyday and was tired yesterday eve so spent time with a friend. Walk and cinema. Totally switched off from work which was good.
And I can still get up and have a productive day, a productive weekend.
I can relate to that. Things get overwhelming, which causes me to want to bury my head in the sand...
