To Do or Not To Do?
7 Steps to Help You Not Procrastinate
Break Down:
Break your project into smaller components. Completing smaller tasks along the way is much easier than facing a daunting of a project.

Get Real:
Set realistic goals. Don’t set stupid goals like trying to finish a twelve page paper in an hour or two because you are already setting yourself up to fail. Make it a habit to keep track of how long assignments take you in all of your courses so that you can be increasingly realistic over time.
6) Get Tough:
Sometimes projects simply require discipline. Force yourself to focus on those things that are high priorities, that aren’t your idea of fun. So the thought of you diving into that term paper is overwhelming to you, so you’re waiting to be inspired. But if you wait for inspiration you may be waiting a long time.
Step one:

fill out a “Term on a page” calendar
• Create a “Term on a page” calendar that shows the whole school term on one paper
• In order to do this, you’ll need the syllabus from ever class you are taking for the term and the school’s course schedule.
• You should transfer the following:
o Holidays (when campus is closed), Exam and quiz dates, project/ paper deadlines, and personal things such as travel plans, or anything that will impact the ability to attend class/ study, i.e. a relative visiting.

Step two:

Invest in a planner
• The “It’s stored in my head” method is a certain way to miss important assignments or appointments.
• You need one “Central clearinghouse” for all important deadlines, appointments, and commitments
o The central clearinghouse could be a hard copy planner, a calendar app, or an online calendar. There are planners available for free in student development, building three
o A full page for each day allows you to write your to-do list into your planner.

Step three:

Transfer important dates
• Transfer the important dates for this term from your Term on a page Calendar to the appropriate day in your planner.
• It’s just as important to have these dates saved into your planner because you will use your planner more regularly.

Step four:

Intermediate deadlines
• Look at the individual due dates for any projects or papers assigned.
• Set intermediate stepping- stone goals that will help you accomplish any final goals
• Choose and record deadlines for completing certain parts of the work.

Step five:
Schedule fixed activities for entire term
• Fixed activities are things or activities that you do on certain days, at fixed times.
o Clubs/ class meetings, religious service you regularly attend, etc.
Step six:

Check for schedule conflicts
• Look for schedule conflicts early on, since there’s more than enough time for adjustments, and talk to your course instructor to try to work something out.
Step seven:

Schedule unscheduled time
• You need some personal time, as well as some down-time to reenergize.
• Life will happen.
• Several times a week something will come up that may possibly force you to change your schedule up a bit.
Step eight:
Monitor your schedule every day
• Now you have developed a working time management system.
• Monitor the use of that system every day.
• Each day take a few minutes to review your plans for the day, and each night take about three minutes to review the next day’s activities.
• Mentally planning out the day in advance will help you internalize what must be accomplished and help you create a pace for each day.
before the beginning of each school week, brainstorm all the things that you want or need to get done in the upcoming week
must get this done; highest priority
very important to get done at some point
must do it right away, but its not an extremely high priority
Now you will review your list
priorities and ask yourself:
1. Do any of the items fit best with a particular day of the week?
2. Can any items be grouped together for easier execution?
3. Do any of
priorities qualify as floating tasks that can be completed anytime, anywhere?
4. Do any priorities need to be shifted?
something changed about the task
1. Do any of the items fit best with a particular day of the week?
2. Can any items be grouped together for easier execution?
3. Do any of A and B priorities qualify as floating tasks that can be completed anytime, anywhere?
4. Do any priorities need to be shifted?
urgency factor increasing
not so urgent, not important to do items, scratch them off
life is too short to waste time on unimportant tasks
since time is a limited resource, one of the best ways to guarantee a successful college experience is to use it wisely.

2) Trick Yourself:

When you feel like procrastinating work on the part of the project that is going to be easy because you are going to have to do it anyway. Start with anything instead of going in order of the project. In a sense that will put you in the mood to do the project.
3) Resolve Issues: If something is gnawing at you, making it difficult to concentrate, handle it. Sometimes you might have to deal with noisy roommates, noisy family members, or your kids that are seeking for attention if you have any or whatever else that might be stopping you from doing your work. Then when you get done taking care of the issue get back to work.
5) Overcome Fear:
We may fear not doing something perfectly, or failing completely, or even the responsibility that comes with success to keep succeeding. But as Susan Jeffers, author and lecturer states, “Feel the fear, and do it anyway.”

Acknowledge Accomplishment:
Buy yourself a small treat, take a relaxing bath, or call your best friend to celebrate your accomplishments big and small along the way. Acknowledgement from yourself or others is a great motivator for tackling future projects.
Have a plan for your study session:
-Build Predictions of
how much time each
assignment will take
-make adjustments
if you get hung up
Turn off your PHONE!
-when completing assignments
-when you don't wan to get disturbed!

If you're working on the computer, work offline!
Dont be tempted to check your beloved
every 5 minutes.
You will waste more time than you think by checking them even if you think you are being productive with your work.
Take 2 minutes to organize your workspace before beginning
hey girl whats up?!
wanna go ball up?
Leggo to da movies! :D
Gym time bro!
Life is about choices,
and choosing requires
the word no.

as they say,
"haste makes waste"
Working on something a million miles a minute will most likely result in mistakes, superficial thinking, and poor decisions.
Ironically, if you rush, you may run out of time and end up settling for less than your best.
Use a Timer!
