    4. Exactly what Tawanda said.
    5. I'd call this a last resort - but after I've tried a lot of focusing methods and they haven't worked, I'll get really, really, really angry. Anger is a great motivator. "Why can't you focus?! This has gone on long enough!!! GOD DAMN IT WILL YOU JUST GET THE WORK DONE?!?!?" And then I'll finish the work with moderate to great speed while wearing this facial expression ... lol.
    My problem is that I can't condition myself to think or feel a certain way if I don't want to think or feel that way. If I unplug the internet, it's no different from any other time, because I know I can easily just plug it back in. And if I try to get angry, I just feel stupid and pointless for my bizzare behaviour.

    Have you heard of pomodoro technique? It's done wonders for me / friends. They've reported that a task that would previously take them an entire weekend now takes them 2-3 hours. And me? My workload as a graduate student is insanely manageable. It has nothing to do with tomatoes or drugs, btw.

    Focus can be improved by numerous techniques - meditation, physical exercise, breathing exercises, etc. Also don't have the TV or internet on while doing homework, it just distracts you (unless your homework has to do with accessing the Internet).
