~Why do most people tend to dally when they know they need to finish their work before their deadline? Like, when a student has started doing his project but stops in the middle and continues it only when the deadline is almost up?

I think laziness plays a big part in it. It's one of my main reasons why I procrastinate.

~I think laziness pretty much sums it up.

This is something I've been thinking about lately. I've been trying really hard to work on motivation, determination, discipline, not procrastinating, not rationalizing stupid excuses, etc.

Maybe someone will provide some insight?

Edit: I do not consider myself lazy. Others may think of me as lazy, like my ultra-cleaning over-working marathon mother.

~Maybe u can only get motivated on something u really like to do or if u have a goal in mind. Do things that have something to do w/ your talents or hobbies.

I think we procrastinate because we get sidetracked. There are many temptations out there that distract us from our goal. I pretty much hate myself procrastinating, since I don't really do my work to the best of my ability.

I just wish there was a way to avoid procrastination... sigh.

Hm, that may help. Part of what I procrastinate on is schoolwork, and I actually enjoy it. I think it's because I feel some level of anxiety over just about any activity from phone calls to washing the dishes to driving at night.

There's some sort of psychology about motivation and such, I'd be interested to read.

Very true! I get distracted very easily. I have a difficult time concentrating and focusing on one thing. I daydream, I forget. It's frustrating, but at least I get my work done, even if it's a little late (personal tasks) or last minute but on time (school work).

i dont know why but for me it actaully works for me
for example, in math and homework, lets say that i get homework on a thursday and its due tuesday i tend to do it on monday cause by tuesday i will remember what i learned from last class and everything will be fresh as compared to as if i would to do it on thursday or friday because by tuesday i will somewhat forget what i have learned haha well thats just me

Is it procrastinating if I planned days in advance to do it in the last minute? :3

~I'm very lazy, heck, I might be the laziest person on Earth. I just sleep in class almost every subject. The only thing I'm motivated and determined to do is going to the gym. I'm a skinny guy and I've been pumping iron, eating those proteins like crazy just to build muscle. Though I know it will take a lot of time,(and money), just imagining that I'll have a beach body makes me really happy, motivated, and actually relieves some stress. You should meditate and think of what you wanna do w/ your life.Another good idea is to do some exercise.Maybe do some light jogging or play some tennis w/ friends or something. You could also ask some of your friends on how to get motivated and avoid distractions.

Funny, I do the same thing. I'm COMPLETELY aware that I'm procrastinating! Like you, I also plan it.

Even right now, I'm procrastinating. I always tell myself that I'm going to start my project or whatever in 10 minutes, and I end up hurrying to make it the night before :/ it's a guilty pleasure, I must say.

That's some pretty good advice. It seems like, and maybe I'm wrong, that the more people get moving and exercise, the more energetic and happy they feel. Endorphins, dopamine, adrenalin, etc... perhaps even serotonin. I'm starting physical therapy soon and when I finish, I hope to be able to work on exercising on my own - like running, swimming, and perhaps cycling, and then be able to move onto stuff like martial arts and dancing. sorry about that rambling!
Anyway, I hope when I get to a point that I can exercise that I'll feel healthier, happier, and more energetic, and therefore more motivated. Some of it, like distractions, can be unavoidable for me.

~Yeah, I read it in a Men's Health issue that when we exercise, in my case, I workout in the gym, the brain releases endorphins throughout the body, therefore relieving stress and makes one happy. Anyway, a piece of advice if you decide to do cardio exercises, do it w/ friends. Doing cardio is really tiring and you might get lazy but you can ingore that laziness if u are with someone.

What's wrong with procrastinating?! As long as it gets done at the end, who cares if you leave it for last minute?

Edit:
What the heck is with all the double posting?!
