Ways to stop Procrastination


Students procrastinate because we have things that we feel is more important than whatever it is we have to do. Some students have the mind set of “why do it today when we can do it tomorrow”. Some students procrastinate because they are disorganized.

Some strategies to keep you from procrastinating…

  • Keep a To-Do List. This will prevent you from forgetting about those unpleasant or overwhelming tasks.
  • Prioritize your To-Do List. This will enable you to quickly identify the activities that you should focus on, as well as the ones you can ignore.
  • Become a master of schedule planning. If you have many projects to do and you don’t know where to start, these tools can help you to plan your time effectively, and reduce your stress levels.
  • Set a time bound goal for yourself. Setting yourself specific deadlines to complete tasks will keep you on track to achieve your goals, and will mean that you have no time for procrastination!
