    The title suggests what this post is all about. I'm badly suffering from this attitude and want myself to change. So, if anyone have any idea about how to get rid of this attitude, please, let me know.
    Your support and advice will be highly appreciated.
    Meanwhile, for those, who are suffering from the same problem, I found this link very useful

    It's called procrastination.
    Force yourself to do a small (or if necessary tiny) part of what you are procrastinating every day.

    I also suffer the same problem. I don't like doing things right now, but, later.
    That's what made me fail in my studies some years ago. I was lazy.
    Now, consider there are things that I do like doing and those give me fun. If try to find what exactly the fun is, and I try to find it in the things I have to do.
    If I like working out, I can study by exercising my brain with small questions and answers. If I like playing games, I can kill monsters all day if I want, and collect their drops, so I can apply it to the everyday life with some imagination.
    I know it's not easy, but, if I like doing certain things, why not loving doing the important things too ?

    When you don't procrastinate you build confidence. Procrastination is usually an avoidance technique so when you stopavoiding you get shit done so you feel better about yourself. Just try it!

    I've suffered A LOT from it. I actually described a breakthrough in that matter on my journal.

    I recommend you guys to read the book in my signature (10 Days to Self-Discipline). It may seem like "meh, just another book", but I'm telling you, it's good stuff.

    You can also read this valuable post (Why Procrastinators Procrastinate): http://waitbutwhy.com/2013/10/why-procrastinators-procrastinate.html

    And watch this video:

    I have a ton more info to share if you want, but I'm telling you that covers the very basics and by using those resources (and actually doing what they teach) you'll be more than OK. :)

    Let us know how it goes.

    Sorry for the late reply.
    I'll try what you recommended. But, I doubt if I'll be able to love studying?
