You need a calendar, a to-do list, a deadline reminders. Some sort of organization.  These will give you some will power to finish things.

Work should come first. You don’t want to learn your lesson by getting fired.  Your next interview, they will ask why you got fired from your previous job. You don’t want to be embarrased by telling them “Beacause I was lazy and I’d surfed the internet all day”.  

You can surf the internet at lunch time or when you get home in the evenings.  You aren’t missing anything on the internet.  It will be there when you get home.  Work might not be there if you don’t get your shit done.

Is it possible that you have an attention deficit problem?

@chicagoworkinggirl:  Omg, I could have written this. I am the exact same way! I don’t know why and honestly, I’m embarassed of it. I mean, I tell myself that I am going to be productive….and it never happens. At least, I’m not as productive as I should be. Sigh.

I hate this about myself so trust me, you are not the only one with this problem. The PPs have already given great advice. I guess all I can think of is just MAKE yourself do it and think about how good it will feel to have that particular task done. That’s what I try to tell myself. :/
