Has anyone had any experience with reducing procrastination and becoming more productive? Not in the bugman-esque way of watching anime in 3x speed in order to squeeze in more time coding or whatever, but actually being able to focus on tasks for extended periods of time. I’m in my first year of higher education now, and on the verge of failing because I just can’t bring myself to revise or complete assignments on time. It’s been this way since grade school, but I’ve been able to coast through with a decent level of intelligence so far. Obviously this won’t pan out well in college so some tips would be appreciated fellow anons.

Cocaine.

If you don't have the balls, steal some ADHD kid's medication.

If you can't even do that, drink coffe or something.

What usually distracts you from completing your shit?

Shortened attention span really. I’m gonna have to start leaving my devices in other rooms when I’m studying I think.

You're just stupid I think. Drop out immediately and save yourself the money and lost time building up a work history. You're going to end up dropping out anyways.

Uni is practically free in my country so no. I think I’ll just spend the summer catching up.

Based on this I assume your procrastination happens on impulse. Like you're working and then you just reflexively open a new tab with 4chan or check your phone, sometimes without even realizing it probably until you're few minutes in wasting your time. Right?

You have to figure out if your procrastination is fear based (anxiety over the exams, fear that you're not in the right major, inability to start, perfectionism etc) or boredom based (you would rather do something else, not "anything but studying please not studying I would rather clean my entire room" but "wow 4chan is really entertaining and stimulates my brain it's better than studying").
Once you've figured that out you can start fixing it. If the problem is anxiety or related you need to have more "holistic" solutions that involve changing your perception of what you're doing. If the problem is boredom based you need to train yourself to do the work and handle more and more concentration as time progresses. Pomodoro method is the classic way of accomplishing this.

Exercise, DO NOT DO DRUGS IT'S A TRAP

Yeah it’s a bit of both really. I’ll definitely try the pomodoro method, thanks anons.
