So…all my life I’ve been a major procrastinator. If you don’t procrastinate, you’re one in a million and probably an all A student. This semester I’m taking 18 hours. I promise I’m not crazy. I’m doing it because of scholarship reasons and because a lot of the classes I wanted to take were offered this semester, so it all just worked out. Over Christmas break, I was thinking about all the work I’ll have this semester and how badly I don’t want to be stressed out all semester. I decided that the best way to not be stressed is to be organized and not to procrastinate.
First off, to stay organized I invested in a Jon Hart planner. I wanted a nice “adult” looking planner that I would use daily and that I could use for many years to come. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE the Lilly Pulitzer planners, but I wanted something that’s more permanent. To help me stay organized, as soon as a teacher assigns something, I immediately write it down. I have the worst memory, so if I don’t write it down right away…chances are that I’ll forget it.
Second, I’ve done my very best at not procrastinating. We’re only in our third week of school, but I’m still finding it difficult to do my homework the day it’s assigned. The first week, I was really good about not procrastinating. No lie, it was the easiest week of my life. I had time to take a nap and hang out with friends and I wasn’t constantly stressing about homework and rushing to get stuff done. I know it’ll be a challenge, but I hope I can kick my procrastination habit and stay on top of my work.
Any suggestions to not procrastinate? How do you stay organized?
