Resolutions

The beginning of a new year is the time when people evaluate their life, and resolve to be better. If you have been putting off making your new year’s resolutions for 2018 like I have, then you might want to adopt some of these resolutions I came up with for college students who have trouble with procrastination.

1. Give yourself precise time frames. For example, "I want to finish my math homework within the next two hours" is a better mantra than "I want to finish my math homework before it is due." I found that giving myself a set number of hours to complete a task helps me to stay focused.

2. Set aside time each day to work on long term projects/assignments. Due dates arrive faster than anticipated, and waiting until the last few days will only result in unnecessary stress and mediocre work. If you chip away at that semester-long report for just an hour a day, you will be surprised at how quickly it will be done.

3. Use incentives to motivate you. When I was younger, my parents got me to clean up my room by promising me a trip to the city pool if I did. Nowadays, I reward myself with a milkshake or some extra relaxation time if I finish an assignment in the time frame I allotted.

Whether you are a seasoned procrastinator, or you just want to become a little more productive, these resolutions are good place to start. Whatever your goals are for 2018, I hope you stick with them, and I hope everyone has a great semester.
