Sorry about last week the last two weeks, I was going to take time to write a post about my progress in Esperanto but two parts homework and one part procrastination managed to make me post nothing.

As this semester starts to come to a close, I’ve gotten a lot busier. After giving it some thought, instead of giving you a rushed post about my progress in the last month, I’ve decided I will abstain from posting until after my exams finish. Then I will take time to figure out how well I’ve accomplished my goals and what I need to improve on and what I did right. All that stuff.

Unfortunately this means I wont be posting again until the middle of December. I will of course be continuing my studies of Esperanto, (and between you and me, I’ve started doing some Japanese again, on the side). I promise an awesome post when I come back!

Until then, take care!

Procrastination is by far my biggest problem, I’m doing it now by writing this blog post… You are Not so Smart  has a great post on procrastination, I would recommend giving it a read!

100% of my procrastination activities are mindlessly browsing the internet and reading Wikipedia pages, forums and all that good stuff. So based on that article I decided to block all of those distracting websites. This didn’t work for long because I somehow managed to find different sites to waste time on and ways around the blocker.

So after some more thought I recalled an article on AJATT, where Khatz suggests that the way to get work done is to have work on the path of least resistance. Taking this into consideration I’ve decided to unplug my gaming computer and use my old Linux desktop as my main computer.

It’s fitted with everything I need to get work done and everything I don’t need is inaccessible (Other then WordPress…).I’m looking forward to seeing how this affects what I do!

So now that I’ve shared my methods, what do you do to stop procrastination?
