    what helps me is to keep a schedule. make a schedule distirbuting your time on everything that needs done. you don't have to stick to the time allwoed for each one. but you shouldn't move down the list until you've completed what needs done. try to get all of your work out of the way first. then the rest of the day is set aside for your enjoyment. i have a checklist of my schedule in my computer. this way you don't forget about anything that needs done. it makes things look alot easier to. good luck.

    Then do more of what you need to do instead of what you want to do. See, easy solution. big_smile

    Procrastination is the creativity killer you need to learn to manage it!

    its not procrastination, its slow computer, then when computer works, hubpages doesnt click over. When both are working, home matters start.. have to find a cave!

      I am feeling you on this salt. Your issues are similar to mine! I, too, have problems with procrastination, personal problems, managing my time and issues with neighbors, but I need to add my job to my list. Any excuse I could find to justify lack of productivity. I can tell you that my problem turned out to be situational depression brought on by financial issues. Hopefully that is not in your case, but it was worth mentioning. I am stuck... I need to be more productive to get out of this rut, but I need to get out of this rut so I can be more productive! I am making small strides everyday but just doing something - anything - positive towards improving an issue.

      This is what I do to keep productive. When one problem pops up, find something you can work on. Work on another hub.

      Say your computer isn't working.. use pen and paper to work on ideas, outlines. Whatever.

      There's always SOMETHING you can do to keep being productive.

    I think this is very common. I have to give myself tasks to complete every day otherwise I will forget about everythig that has to get done and float around doing stuff that's not achieving anything. Write down on a paper diary with a pen what needs to be completed and when. Good luck!

      So true.  My last contract finished at the end of January and I was full of plans for all the stuff I was going to achieve while I wasn't working. It's nearly two months later and I've only managed to stick to one goal - to get an hour of exercise every day.  And even that isn't producing the results I was hoping for!

      I'm one of those people who needs stimulation around me to work - sitting on my own at home, it's all too easy to drift into a sort of stupor!

    Seriously... you need some time out, some peace.  Fancy coming for a walk with me to search for bluebells? smile

    I helped overcome my procrastination by creating a proper to-do list then outsourcing all the 'to do's' i hated doing!

    toodledo.com is great for this (free too)

      Oeh this sounds interesting!

      My problem is I am very good at planning and making lists. My schedules are great, and made in a way that they are achievable. I just never stick to them :s
