College equals homework, and a lot of it. Sometimes it can be very overwhelming, even to the point when you are not sure where to start from, because there is so much to do. One option is to search the web and find someone to do some or all the tasks for you. You will have to pay for this service, but no matter how affordable homework can be; the best assignments are done yourself.
Instead of arguing why this is true, we will show you how to get what you need to be done in a timely manner, so you do not miss any deadlines!
Here is a step-by-step way that you should take:
- Make a list of everything you need to get done, like a “to-do” list;
- Number them in order of importance;
- If you have a bigger project, like writing a paper, break it down into its own steps (Finding resources, highlighting resources, creating a thesis, brainstorming ideas, making an outline, writing a draft, etc.);
- Work your way down the list, checking things off as you complete them.
Trick Your Mind
It is a good idea to try and list every little thing that you have to do, because in this way, the list becomes easier to get through. It’s a mind trick. Once you have started crossing off things, or ticking boxes to note that you have completed the task, then you will feel a sense of accomplishment and will be motivated to keep going.
Take Breaks and Schedule Rewards
Arrange the amount of time to work with full focus on a task. After that time is up, take a break! There are many methods for doing this, and the amount of time is up to you. Many people use 40 minutes, but it may be easier to go with a half.
Many experts argue that taking frequent breaks or multitasking is a no-no, because it will take you twice as long to get in the groove of where you have left off. If you agree with this notion, then instead of using time as a break determiner, use the completion of a task, assignment, or homework.
During the break, dedicate this time to doing something you enjoy, or something you want to do. Think of yourself as a child and bribe yourself! “When I finish this, I can have a donut”, or “If I work entirely on this task for 2 hours today, I will go bowling this weekend”. It’ll give you some motivation as well as something to look forward to!
If you do not have an immediate pressing deadline that is forcing you to work on one thing, then you can mix things up to make it slightly more interesting for yourself. For example, you can do 5 math problems, then switch to a reading assignment, say 1 chapter, then go back to math, then to editing the first draft of an essay, then back to math, etc.
With these tips, you will quickly become a pro at completing homework on time. Set yourself up for success and don’t procrastinate!
