Choose the right environment. This can make all the difference in the world. If you know you are prone to procrastinating, then you’ll want to make sure you don’t have any tempting distractions in your work environment. Avoid using your bed for doing writing assignment. Your area should be well-lit and give you the ability to focus. Your books, supplies and writing utensils you need should be in this location.
Divide your writing assignments into categories so you can easily see what priorities each one has. For example, sort them into low, medium and high priority. For now, ignore the assignments that are optional and given for extra credit because you just need to focus on the requirements right now. Later when you’ve had more practice getting over procrastination you can do some extra credit homework.
The theme of every good procrastinator is “never do today what can be put off until tomorrow.” Unfortunately, this kind of a philosophy doesn’t go very well with academic endeavors. Tests, exams, assignments, papers, essays, projects all have due dates. Missing those deadlines means getting a zero or losing significant amounts of marks. No students wants that to happen.
