Transcript of "Putting Procastination In Its Place"
PUTTING PROCASTINATION IN ITS PLACE1. Determine what type of procrastinator you are. - I’m an avoider procrastinator.2. Describe a time in which you fit the procrastinator type. - I was taking Marine Science class; the teacher was asking questions for an extra credit. He asked a question about octopus, I knew the answer to the question. Because of my shyness and thinking that my answer was foolish I didn’t answer. Then I was regretting because I needed that extra credit for the final exam.3. Describe a negative consequence of your actions as one of the procrastinator types. - I felt so bad because I could have gotten the extra credit, I took my final exam and I got a B with an 89%, the teacher didn’t wanted to give the extra point that I was missing to get a 90% A.4. Honestly assess why you procrastinate. What is the payoff for you? -I procrastinate because of my shyness, I have to be more open and talk what I think even if I make a mistake. Nobody is perfect, we are in the class to learn and make mistakes. The professor is there to help us succeed and correct our errors. I didn’t get the grade that I wanted/deserved, even though I study a lot for that test. I was really pissed off at me.5. Describe two tricks that can keep you from procrastinating in situations like the one you described above. - I have to express myself, be more open and never let anybody think I am not smart. -Writing down the answer, question or concern, then letting know the professor with proofs that you knew the answer. Fear is the worst enemy.
