Beat procrastination!

This is a page about beating procrastination – where to start and how to get help.

Just to be clear: This is not a medical service. If you have a medical emergency, contact your local emergency services. For broken legs and heart attacks, call a regular ambulance (911 in the USA, 000, in Australia). But for support in beating procrastination, call in The Procrastination Paramedic.

The “Procrastination Ambulance” at some German universities is a service for students afflicted with the curse of procrastination.

Procrastination isn’t a moral failing – rather it’s a disconnect between what we want, the action we need to take to get it, and the energy and focus needed to take that action. Beating yourself up isn’t likely to help (and will probably make things worse). What you bene is understanding and strategy.
