Overcoming Procrastination In Doing School Work

  1. 1. Overcoming Procrastination In Doing School Work
  2. 2. <ul><li>T here are obvious reasons you can point to if you lack motivation in your studies : </li></ul><ul><li>You find the work difficult and unrewarding. </li></ul><ul><li>The work seems pointless to you. </li></ul><ul><li>You can do it last minute and still do okay. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>R esearch has found 3 hidden emotional reasons students aren’t motivated to do school work and procrastinate. These reasons aren’t obvious and may be key to your becoming more motivated. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Scenario <ul><li>Say 3 kids are given an assignment </li></ul><ul><li>They have 3 weeks to finish it. </li></ul>
  5. 5. 1 st category <ul><li>They know if they start a week before, they’ll be working on it, you know grinding a way at it. </li></ul><ul><li>And they would do a really great job at the assignment if they wanted to. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>But there is a part of them inside, if they did the best job they could, if they really took the time and the effort to do the work that they’ve assigned to do they know that they can do it. </li></ul><ul><li>But if they didn’t get the best score, if they were judged in there perception incorrectly that it would hurt, it would hurt so much that they rather do an ‘Okay’ job at the last minute instead of the best job that they know they can do. </li></ul><ul><li>Because they fear failure </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>So that’s category number 1. </li></ul><ul><li>Those who fear failure are those who don’t want to do their best because if they do their best and they fail or if they are criticised for it than they rather avoid being their best altogether. </li></ul><ul><li>They wait last minute to a ‘Okay’ to a lot of times a good job but it’s not their best job, not their highest quality. </li></ul><ul><li>They turn that in and be judged for that, I mean Hey, they only did it last night- </li></ul><ul><li>So Whatever! </li></ul>
  8. 8. 2 nd Category <ul><li>Is the type of student who got the assignment, maybe they joke about - yeh, whatever whatever, I’ll get to it. </li></ul><ul><li>What they don’t want to do is they don’t wanna do their best job. </li></ul><ul><li>Because if they do their best, they get to the top of the class but that’s not a comfortable position for them. </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>These are the people who if they stand out too much that they'd actually be criticised by other students. </li></ul><ul><li>They maybe praised by their teacher but they don’t want that praise. </li></ul><ul><li>They rather lay-low, not stand out, be kind of in the crowd- be cool, be like everyone else. </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>So the 2 nd category, they fear success, being outside of the crowd. </li></ul><ul><li>They fear standing out. </li></ul>
  11. 11. 3 rd Category <ul><li>These students are like </li></ul><ul><li>- If there’s the teacher saying “ Ah huh, you have to do this . ” </li></ul><ul><li>Then they look at that and says “ Noo buddy… ” </li></ul>
  12. 12. <ul><li>So this kind of Procrastinator resents authority. </li></ul><ul><li>They hate people telling them what to do. But they know that they have to do this in order to pass the class. </li></ul><ul><li>As a way to rebel against these authority- they do the bear minimum and they do this at the last minute. </li></ul><ul><li>Because it’s kind of like I screw you, like a ‘FU..’ to the man, to the establishment. </li></ul><ul><li>They wait till the last minute because nobody tell these students what to do. </li></ul>
  13. 13. 1 st step to handling Procrastination <ul><li>Identify where in this category you fall upon. </li></ul><ul><li>And recognize the pattern, recognize inside of you that Procrastination is for many students. </li></ul><ul><li>And it’s a powerful force, not only powerful, its something they don’t really think about… they think like ‘ ohhh, it’s a trivial thing ’ </li></ul><ul><li>But there really is a lot of emotion behind it. </li></ul>
  14. 14. <ul><li>So just see where you fall in there and maybe with this awareness you can start to shift things. </li></ul>Proudly presented by: Ridoy
