Start on day one and don’t stop until you’re done.
As much as you will want to go hang out with your friends the second you get out of class on the first day, resist it. Head to the library, your room, or wherever else it is you get work done and just do it. On the first day you will have such little work to do that it will seem too insignificant to start right away. However, this helps set up the rest of the semester for you. If you can get in the habit of this before the work load gets daunting then procrastination will no longer be an issue. Sit down after your classes and finish all your work (or make a plan on how to finish it) before you relax. Simple as that. Do that and cramming will no longer be your life. If you think that’s too overwhelming, try challenging yourself to do that for 30 days. After the 30 days it will become a habit!
But maybe you’re of the opinion that procrastination is fine and that you do pretty well regardless. That’s fine. But think of how much easier studying would be if you didn’t procrastinate. By the end of week one you would have all of week one’s material down pat. You would have the opportunity to quickly review in the coming weeks instead of still struggling to learn it all. Then come the weekend before the test you will simply be reinforcing what you already know instead of struggling to have complete knowledge of what you’ll be tested on.
Boom. That A is easily within reach.
The culture behind procrastination unfortunately only ends up feeding the habit. The idea that procrastination is just a thing that everyone does and jokes around about is the worst part. Well, it’s time to take it seriously! There actually is no secret to doing well in school! You already know what you need to do. So start doing it!
robin williams is one of those people who’s always been around and you never think about how they might not be around one day because they’re already immortal in your mind but then you lose them and it feels like you’ve lost part of your own history
I have little words yet much feeling about hearing of the death of Robin Williams. Rest In Peace you beautiful man. We will remember you for the well worked art that you’ve contributed to the world. You were, and always will be, the Genie. You helped make wishes come true.
