Hey guys, I'm usually not this candid but I need some help. I am looking for suggestions on things to do to improve my self discipline. I've never really had strong self discipline, I have always had trouble with procrastination and slacking off when effort should be put in. I have a weak will; even if I recognize what I should be doing (I usually do) I almost never am able to do it. When I do what I am supposed to be doing it is a great struggle to keep myself focused on the task and to keep from slacking off and procrastinating. These tendencies have gotten me into lots of trouble with school work in the past and its starting to happen again. I get really stressed out from what I do to myself, from how I slack off when effort and time need to be put in to succeed. I recognize what I'm doing and I stress out over it but I never do anything about it. I've dealt with this for as long as I can remember, I've always had trouble with procrastination and getting stuff done and I've always managed somehow in the past but it's coming to the point where I can't or won't manage anymore with this lifestyle. I've talked a little bit about this with a friend, he suggested that I might have a deep seated fear of failure where if I don't really put effort into anything I can't truly fail, I'm not sure if this has any merit or not but it's one idea. Anyways, I come to you for help, opinions, suggestions? What can I do? Also: forgive me if this seems broken and jumbled together, it's 1:30 am and I'm slightly upset about this.
