Procrastination often starts when you decide to take a break or just tell yourself you’ll watch one more episode of your favourite TV programme before starting your assignment. One more episode quickly turns into three and you end up going to bed at 2 in the morning without starting that assignment.

    • Set deadlines Setting realistically achievable deadlines gives you something to aim for. If you don’t have a set deadline you’ll find you continuously put things off.
    • Break tasks into smaller parts Breaking big tasks down into smaller sections makes them seem more achievable and less time-consuming and daunting.
    • Write a list If you have a lot of things to do, write a list of everything that needs doing. Once a task is done, tick it off the list. This will bring a sense of achievement and help spur you on to complete more timeconsuming work.
    • Set yourself rewards For example, you could promise yourself a coffee and a cake or a trip to the cinema once you get an assignment finished. Rewards help you to focus on the task in hand.
    • Do a little bit at a time. This technique works for anything from cleaning to planning an event. If you do small sections at a time the task will seem easier and your deadline more achievable.
