Clever title huh? Ok maybe not, but seriously, I need to stop procrastinating because it’s causing a great deal of problems in my life (mainly school related). None of these problems are a big deal, yet. I tend to put off studying for exams until a few days before the test, and then cram for 2 days straight. That’s working for me now, but i’m afraid it isn’t going to work for much longer. The material i am covering in some of my classes is far too complicated to basically teach myself in a few days. My test grades are beginning to slip.
The obvious solution to my problem is to just study ahead of time and keep up with the material, but it’s not that easy. It’s actually extremely difficult for me to change these habits. It’s crazy how something so simple, like changing my study habits, can be so difficult to accomplish, even when there a huge benefits to changing these habits.
So, my question is, do you procrastinate? If so, have you had any success in changing some of those habits? If you don’t procrastinate, did you ever at any point in your life, and how did you change that behavior?
I’m probably going to buy a book on procrastination to better understand it and learn how to deal with it, so along with any advice, let me know of any books you may know of, because i’m sure everyone here has millions of these books on hand…
