This girl right here has been on the procrastination bus all week. I think the sloth from Zootopia is moving faster than me. I like to justify my bad habit of procrastination by stating how well I work under pressure, but that is just an excuse to keep procrastinating. I tried to motivate myself this summer by buying a motivational planner with stickers and highlighters, you know, the works. I did really well for about two months using that planner. Then I had about a month before school started and did not need to use my planner on a daily basis. I clearly need to dust it off and put it back to use.
This week has been a slow week in terms of activities not related to school, so I have fallen into the trap of, “Oh, I don’t have anything to do tonight so I’ll just catch up on tv and social media for a little bit and then I will start my homework.” We all know how that ended up – me falling asleep without doing homework. Which then led to me having to rush and spend 4 hours trying to finish three assignments before midnight last night. Of course, I got it all done. Now the quality of said assignments remains to be seen.
So here is my list of things to help get me back on track:
- Open my planner!
- Put all 3 class assignment due dates into planner.
- Put assignments on phone calendar with alerts/reminders.
- Review calendar every night before going to bed to create “To Do” List for the next day.
- Limit social media usage to thirty minutes when getting home from work and before starting on school work.
Wish me luck!
