    Goal setting!!

    Set small, measurable, attainable, and challenging goals.  Start with the end result and break it down into the short, medium, and long term goals to reach it.  Post pictures of your goal everywhere and keep it as your focus.  This is a calculated formula and can get you from point A to point B in a timely manner.

    Alternately, you could just quit worrying about it and roll with life as it comes.

    Either way - be well.

    Not sure, I'll let you know tomorrow when I've got time.

    Create a schedule to get things done and a means to enforce it. There has to be both a "carrot" and a "stick" when you succeed or fail to keep up.

    Instead of asking questions that you can do something about, do something about them.

    I'm a terrible procrastinator - but I've learned not to fight it, but to use it.

    I make a list of things I must get done, putting the most unpleasant and arduous one at the top. Then I actively avoid doing it by doing everything else first.

    When I have a term paper I should be working on, my kitchen is spotless. If I really don't want to do the dishes, the term paper gets done.
