Throughout the majority of my adult life, I’ve claimed that I’m definitely not a procrastinator. That I prefer to get things done earlier rather than save everything until the last minute.
But this past year, when I started my editorial internship at The Muse (which included far more deadlines than I’d ever had before), I learned something very important about myself. While I don’t prefer to put things off, I am, in fact, guilty of doing it. A lot.
Though I knew a few weeks ahead of time what most of my assignments would be, I’d find myself scrambling to pull together a 1,000-word article the day before it was due. And while I can work well under pressure, well, my stress levels really don’t like it.
If you are a dawdler like me, this infographic provides 15 ways for you to prevent you from procrastinating. Good luck! May the force—er, the productivity—be with you.
