Dr. Steel, of whose name I am quite jealous, has done a bang-up job of summarizing all the best research on procrastination and motivation–both of which are vital for study skills and habits. I’m giving you the short and sweet version, with my own additions and insights, but if you want the full scoop check out the book!

In our last installment we looked at ten ways to increase the value of a task thereby forcefully ejecting procrastination from the premises.

Get the Most Out of Your College Study Group



I loathed and detested study groups when I was a sniveling college noob. Study groups tossed together by professors like a scholar salad were usually total wastes! There was always somebody(s) who was irritating and/or distracting, and the group frittered away more time trying to keep them on task than we did actually studying. My rule of thumb was…

15 minutes studying by my lonesome = 1 hr studying with study group


study groups = waste o’ time

But they don’t have time be jurassic-scale time leeches. Continue reading Get the Most Out of Your College Study Group
