I was about to Google procrastination quotes, but I decided to put it off until tomorrow. Or the day after.
Procrastination. We have all done it. It is not a unique condition. When students put off work, ask for extensions or just ignore the due dates, it can feel like they don’t care or that they are lazy. But if we dig a little deeper, it becomes clear that students don’t procrastinate because they are lazy. They procrastinate because they are anxious. Maybe they don’t know what they want to do or how to get started. They put these actions off because they are afraid of failing or doing it wrong. And to a student, what could be scarier than not getting into college? It’s much more comfortable in the moment to put it off and not have to feel those feelings.
Unfortunately, we know that procrastination will not make us feel better in the long run. Putting off the college application process will only increase your stress, anxiety, and fear. So, how do you slay the Procrastination Beast?
