#7 Bored and Tired are NOT the Same Thing

A lot of people procrastinate the things they really don't want to do. People also mistake being bored as being tired. They aren't the same thing. Make sure to double check yourself before taking a nap to make sure you are not just bored. If you are bored, work on a task and get it done! This will help you not procrastinate.

#9 Group Work Procrastination

Being in a group is hard. Making sure everyone contributes and does a fair share of work can lead to procrastination. You make excuses like, "oh, we can get it done later since there are so many of us" or "it won't take that long" or "I'm really busy so I can't help today". This is what causes procrastination. Make your group set a schedule of when to do things so everything gets done on time. This will ensure everyone is on the same page and that deadlines won't be missed.

#10 Being Alone is Okay

Distractions don't always come from social media or texting. Distractions can come from other people as well. If you are a person who knows they will procrastinate if others are around, go somewhere by yourself. It is okay to be alone when getting projects done if that means you are going to keep yourself from procrastinating.
