A common concern/complaint:


  I'm not doing my homework. What's wrong with me? I'm in VCE now.


Any tips or advice would be appreciated.

A good tip I heard is to do some work immediately after coming home. Instead of taking a 2 hour break then doing all your work at once, first do half an hour of work, then take a break. Doing that first half-hour in the beginning makes it easier to resume later in the evening.

In regards to Yitzi's comment;

I have heard otherwise. I have read/heard that you should take a break after coming from school because you come home tired (especially if you have had to commute by train or bus long distance), and so are not in the right mind set to study- you may be able to complete some of the work, but it is not "sticking".

That being said though, many people do a bit of both. Many people like to complete my work ASAP so that it's out of the way, and as Yitzi said makes it easier to resume later (after you eat, have a break, MSN, myspace etc).

Fundamentally though, the more you do earlier on, the less you do after =D

One way you can mitigate procrastination is to fight procrastination by dousing it with as many positive and productive elements as possible, as I discussed in one of my blog posts, Positive Procrastination.


  Rather than try to fight the interruptions of procrastination, why not use them to your advantage? Interrupt your Facebook and Twitter news feeds by becoming a fan of, or following, the users of productive value to you. Decrease the chances of losing your focus, by throwing snippets of focus back into your news feed.


For VCE students, why not add VCE-related fan pages to your Facebook page? Most VCE websites have their own fan page or group. Merspi has one (facebook, twitter). I have done this myself. I follow the following VCE-related Facebook fan pages:


VCEJapanese.com Facebook Fan Page
Daniel15's ENTER Calculator
The Teacher's Hub


And a whole heap on Twitter too!

Sometimes seeing their news items in your Facebook/Twitter feeds is enough to nudge you towards doing some homework! It can't hurt.
