Ending Procrastination

Procrastination gets the best of all of us from time-to-time. However, chronic procrastination will cause you to perform below your potential. Avoid procrastinating by effectively managing your time.

  1. Keep a schedule and stick to it.
  2. Complete difficult assignments first.
  3. Work on projects a little bit every day instead of all at one time.
  4. Determine why you are procrastinating: fear, stress, etc.
  5. Set goals and share with a close friend who can hold you accountable.
  6. Select a study buddy to hold you accountable for sticking to a study schedule.
  7. Reward yourself when you accomplish a goal.
