How many times have you thought to yourself, it can wait? This mindset, while comfortable, can lead to devastating consequences like failing classes and not graduating on time.
With the fall semester underway, we’re giving our 6th-12th grade students some tips to help beat procrastination and set them up for academic success. Take a look.
Stick to a Schedule
Knowing when assignments are due and how long they’ll take to complete is a great starting point, but actually sticking to a schedule is key.
Something such as science in the morning, math after lunch, and history before bed will go a long way in helping you stay on track. The key is to get so accustomed to a routine that completing assignments becomes almost second nature.
Set Reachable Goals
It’s common for students to finish one of our courses in a few months thanks to our work-at-your-own-pace format, but not everyone can devote the same amount of time to schooling.
By thinking about what you’d like to accomplish and setting a goal, you’re more likely to beat procrastination because it gives you something to strive for.
When the moment comes, celebrate!
Everyone loves acknowledgment and affirmation for a job well done. And it reinforces the good habits you followed to overcome procrastination.
