I am having an issue with schoolwork. For as long as I can remember, I have had a hard time focusing on the task at hand. I am constantly getting distracted. I don't have ADD, or anything like that.
I can't focus on the task at hand. I remember in 4th grade, I had the hardest time getting my math done in class. One day I got in trouble for something so I had to go sit at a desk in the corner away from everyone else. That day I finished my math quickly, with no trouble at all. There were no distractions. Now I am a freshmen in college and I am worse about staying focused then I used to be. I used to think I struggled with procrastination, but I think the issue is more just the distractions that come while doing my homework.
Whats worse is I am taking this term online. Big mistake. I have to use a computer with internet access now to get my work done. I end up on youtube, or just googling random stuff and before I know it hours have gone by and I have accomplished very little.
It's like if I could build myself a little white box with an empty desk, a computer that only lets me visit the website I need to visit, then I could work.
I need help. Any advice?
ps. Mods, feel free to move/close this if that is the action that needs to be taken.
