I've had it for seven years, and since I've had about eight flat tires, three incidents of my brakes failing, my rear rim corroding off, and my fuel pump failing. These should all be a red flag that I should get a new car; hell, I could afford a lease on a new car at $199/month and it would still be cheaper than the price of repairs on my current beater, but NOOO.
    Maybe you are procrastinating about buying that new car because you are not sure about what kind of car you want or what problems you might have with getting a new car. I am no life expert but I suggest you do not rush this because cars are pretty expensive to maintain. Even new ones(talking from experience). Just take it a day at a time and do some research on that car you want way the pros and cons. If you think it is worth the risk go for it.

    As I grew up to be a mature person, I grew up also how to handle my time and to have time management for all the things that I am going to do in my everyday life. I see to it that I can do all the things at the right time or even earlier to avoid in a hurry or to procrastinate. Because of this I am always at ease in my actions and no worries and I am able to meet my deadlines and work at the right time.

    Only one yes. Wow, what a bunch of lazy asses up in here. Me included, lol. Is there at least anyone who is trying to get out of it? Be more productive and stuff? I've been using the Pomodoro technique lately. Albeit with moderate success.

    I have a huge problem with this. I always find something else to do when there is something I am avoiding. I am the the type that would probably clean her whole house and do every other errand except the one that needs to be done that day. I have even recently began a "reward system" where I reward myself with some yummy food if I get the important things done. It may be sad but at least things are getting done! (haha).

    Actually, there is something that's helped me a lot lately when I've had something important to work on. It's called the Magic Work Cycle. It's unorthodox and in my case, it means working for double the time. But, effectively, I suppose you get double the enjoyment. How it works is, you use a program (or a website, linked below) to set an alarm automatically every thirty minutes (adjustable) and you constantly switch from work to play, and back. It might sound like too much play, but think about it this way. In a normal work schedule, you might work eight hours and feel very tired, bored, and not really put in any extra effort or feel motivated to work at all. You look forward to that one break, and then it's back to slogging. You might constantly check e-mails or Skype and generally put in a half-arsed effort. With this system you know you can do whatever you want for thirty minutes after putting in hard work for the same amount of time. You'll have 100% of your focus and do a very good job.

    I realise this system can not exist for most work environments. I'm self-employed so fortunately I have the ability to do this. I use Desktops 2.0 to switch from a play desktop to a work desktop. They look completely different. I can switch to and from the other desktop as soon as I hear the alarm every thirty minutes. It's a system that works very well for me. And I do a lot more work. I can spend ten hours a day. It's five hours of work, but I believe that five hours of focused work is better than eight hours of constant work with one break, that gets boring after a while.

    If you're interested in this, it's simple to get started: http://magicworkcycle.com

    I really try to do things immediately as it bothers me if I have a chore that I do not attend to ASAP. Like in household chores, I would finish them all before I go out. So that I do not have to think about them when I an out and I can relax when I get home.

    I have ups and downs with procrastination, but I would like to think I'm winning more battles now.
