4 Simple Steps to Beat Procrastination

Share

Motivation done right lets you motor through your to-do list like magic. Try this simple trick from London-based writer, Sidin Vadukut. Pair each chore on your daily to-do list with a short, sweet reward.

You are using a to-do list and a calendar to make short work of your academic tasks, aren’t you? Paper works great, but I’ve recently been playing with Wunderlist 2 and have been pleasantly surprised.

Here’s how it works…

  1. On your to do list add a fun to-do after each and every task.
  2. Assign your tasks (the fun ones and the less fun ones) a time to complete. That will keep you from letting things drag out or from over-scheduling yourself.
  3. Keep your fun to work ratio at about 1:10. For example, if I spend forty-five minutes studying my Econ homework, I might then allow myself five minutes of Smarter Every Day.
  4. Bask in the glory of a fully checked off to-do list.

Let us know your favorite rewards in the comments!

“Hudson is an excellent lecturer. I took his GRE course, and I am convinced that his instruction immensely improved my score. His price is an absolute bargain compared to many GRE prep courses out there, and I believe his instruction on the writing portion alone is worth the money. In my first practice test, I scored a 318. On test day, I scored a 329, and I know that I could not have performed that well without his tips.” – Ben F. – Read what other students say

…thank you for the fantastic prep for the GRE. The general insight into the structure of the exam, question writing, trends in grading (the generally scientific and data based approach to the whole course), and general tips for efficient time use were a massive help. I took the exam that September and received 164/167/6.0 scores. So thank you very much for the excellent course.” – GRE Prep Course Student – Read what other students say

“I took your GRE prep class last month and just took the GRE test. I just wanted to thank you for helping me study for this test. Again, thank you so much. I never expected to score this well!” – Mallory F. –Read what other students say

I began teaching GRE prep in 2000. My employer at the time decided to offer GRE and SAT prep. Since then, the GRE has undergone some major overhauls, and I’ve been around for all of them. I originally got the course from a guy in Austin who had been teaching GRE prep–with great results–for fifteen years. I used his materials for awhile, but…

A couple of thousand students later, and I saw clear areas for improvement. I saw what really tripped up my GRE students. I found the areas of the GRE most students struggled with. I figured out the best ways to explain certain concepts. I found powerful techniques and tricks that aren’t in any of the GRE prep books. I also figured out exactly what was in the books that wasn’t needed; even the big international GRE test prep companies have whole sections full of information that isn’t on the GRE. So I rewrote the course; quantitative, verbal, and written analytical.

Since then, I’ve steadily modified the StudyProf GRE Prep course to streamline the content, perfect the techniques, and add in powerful methods for tackling the problems that the other GRE prep companies don’t even address. You can register for an upcoming StudyProf GRE Prep class now or find out more about one-on-on GRE tutoring.
