It's bad enough if you love someone with this issue but if the TASK that's being put off involves others, that is incredibly frustrating. Our Dad passed away 1 year ago this month. My Brother is the Executor and hasn't Probated the WILL yet, even though I have done all of the leg work, got the forms ready, spoke to the Court and gave him a list to go by ( He was an almost straight A student in school so he DOES know to take care of business without my help), he used the excuse that he would wait until the Fall of year to give us a bit of time, then he said he would wait until after the first of the year because the Holidays need to be out of the way, then he said the traffic was too much due to a parade in February, then he said he was having trouble with the car ( which the car was giving trouble at the time), then it was I'll do it soon, that was in March, now here is is July and he still hasn't done it. I even offered to drive him and go in with him and that insulted him. He has called me up and never does unless he wants something from me or wants to let me have it. Boy, he called me up on several occasions and blasted me while I was in a store shopping and told me off in a rage and then tells that all he ever gets from me is nothing good that if he looks at his FB messenger he thinks oh no. He said all of those times he fussed at me that I was the reason that his blood pressure is up. Asked me silly questions blaming me. Well, he can go somewhere ever single day of the week so why can't he just simply do this one thing? He said, oh well probating is the easy part, executing it is other. What in the world am I going to do? He a terrible HOARDER as well. Just piles up things so you have to climb over everything. Refuses to throw out most things. You should see him room and the rest of the house is getting that way, it is disgusting. I love my brother but I can't take this behaviour. I have to send everything via Messenger because he stays in his room most of the time and will not sit down and speak to you in person. He would do the same thing to our Dad when he was alive. My Dad would say, I wish he would just come in here and talk to me, he comes to the end of the hall for a few seconds and then goes back to his room. My Dad needed his son to talk to and my brother never liked talking for very long to my Dad, my Dad loved to talk for hours on end and my Brother is the opposite. Oh boy!

The Flora app is a pomodoro timer that plants a tree (on your dime) if you fail (go to any app except the timer). If you suceed though it plants something in your digital garden, which is a simple nice reward, i like it.

Lol our teacher made us watch this so technically I'm not procrastinating XDD
Dylan Bednarz (10 months ago)
The problem with this is that it only works on neurotypical people but people with Aspergers like me actually have problems with getting motivated or even while working we end procrastinating with over research or if we start something we interested in or one of our obsessions we hyper focus which means forgetting about even certain biological needs till we have to get up

I'm both a procrastinator and a perfectionist and it sucks.
Maisie (1 year ago)
It's like telling a sick person why they're sick . You can't just ask a procrastinator why they procrastinate. I strongly believe it's genetic. If you have a mother or a father or a grandfather who procrastinates greatly chances are you do the same thing. So it's hard for a procrastinator to change themselves.

why is water so hot it feels cold?
Ethan VanSomeren (1 year ago)
A great way to help stop procrastination. Is to count down from 10, giving your thoughts as much time needed to count down. Thinking to yourself, I need to move when im done counting! Example : *10...9...8............2.............................1!* Then at one, start moving your body or get up. This has always helped me. So hopefully it may help someone else out there.

Tabata training for getting things done.. I like it. As long as you follow the timers.. because 5 minutes can easily become multiple hours.. Download a tabata app. Or "HITT" app (high intensity interval training).

This is the most productive procrastination ever!
Eetsu (2 years ago)
I think we procrastinate because there is a due date for pretty much anything:When the homework is due, when your bills are due, when the new movie comes out, when, when, when. Our brains are not used to prepare before an event. Back in the prehistoric days, there were no 'due dates'. Our bodies naturally tells us what we should do now: I'm hungry, I'm bored, I'm cold, etc. TLDR We're not used to be doing certain things based on what time it is.
