Tutoring in Troy Michigan

Procrastination is an all too common bad habit that impedes us from completing our work to the best of our abilities. It often strikes when we are given large projects or assignments with lots of time in advance. Instead of putting off our work because we are intimidated by it or because we think we’ll have time later, The Tutoring Center in Troy has some tips to help you beat this bad habit.

Environment

Be conscious of the space you choose to do your work in because it can affect your concentration and your overall productivity. Avoid spaces with distractions such as televisions and do your best to stay away from social media as you work. Who you do your work around can also impact your progress and concentration. Choose a space that is comfortable, well lit and that provides enough space for all your materials.

Time management

Larger assignments are easier to conquer if you break them down into smaller, more manageable tasks. Estimate how long these smaller tasks might take and set reasonable deadlines for each. Making a checklist of tasks will help you concentrate on what needs to get done and will make you more committed to completing each item on your list. As you cross items off your list will see that you are moving closer to the overall goal.

Positive reinforcement

Rewarding yourself for completing tasks as you cross them off your checklist is a great way to motivate yourself to keep moving forward. Set your rewards before you start your assignments so you know what you’re working towards. Remember to choose prizes that will keep you motivated and energized. Rewards can be anything from a short walk outside to one of your favorite snacks or a phone call. Positivity is always key when working through a large project so make sure to think positive thoughts and motivate yourself as you work.
