The focus of today would be on one of the most common red flags of studies for students, which is procrastination. If you want to know more about other red flags, make sure you give the first part of this blog a read.
Now, have a look at this instance, and if you relate to it even a bit, then you must read the whole blog. Deal? Great!
There is a class 11th student, who has 7 days to finish 7 chapters for a test on the 8th day. So technically he/she should have completed one chapter per day, for the ease of revision later.
But what that student did is, tried and studied all of that on the 7th day. Now, don’t tell me that you have not done this occasionally. Means you do relate to it, right? So, remember our deal.
Now, why does a student procrastinate? TBH, you are the ones who can probably answer this question. You will eventually get the work done right, so why not do it on time.
Too much time for one small task is the most common reason for procrastination. Where the common mentality is ( baad mai karenge ).
But the point is getting work done at the end just for the thrill it does not make sense. Instead try getting it done in parts.
Doing a few weeks work, in a few days, good luck getting your sleep schedule back on track.
Is it all bad?
The answer is no. Just like there are 2 sides to a coin, there are 2 sides to this. Active procrastinator and laziness. What you want to be is the active one.
Active ones are usually those, who know that they have to get this work done, but they will deliberately wait for the last moment just for the thrill of it.
The problem is not in doing the work, but in starting it at the first place. But once that flow is there, work gets done in no time.
See the habit can prove to be healthy, till the time to use it to your advantage.
