Procrastination can stand in the way of student success. In order to avoid procrastinating, it is important that a student understand if the procrastinating is to avoid the subject at hand, or if it is a habit.

Time management is important in beating procrastination. Break your assignments down into smaller segments and accomplish them one step at a time. Don't try to set goals to be too large and thus unrealistic. By breaking down the steps, you accomplish the task as well as motivate yourself to move forward because of your successful completion of a task. The most important step is the first one. Go ahead and do something regarding the task at hand. It will be easier after the first step is made.

Avoid distractions. Don't let yourself get too comfortable when studying. Try to get everything you need together so you don't have to get up and down. Minimize noise. It is a good idea to turn off your telephone when studying. Television and music is also distracting.

Tell yourself that you can do the assignment. Self-motivation is important. Reward yourself with positive thoughts when you complete a job. Think about your values and goals and decide if you are reaching them. Decide on your best learning process for the assignment and use it. Believe that you can succeed, and you will.

It may be good for you to find somebody in whom you can confide your goals and successes. Outside motivation and praise will help to achieve positive inner beliefs and thoughts. Other people can help point out your strengths and weaknesses, thus making it easier to pinpoint why you procrastinate.

Recall your successes to avoid procrastination. Think about a large project and how you accomplished it. These thoughts will keep you in a positive frame of mind. If you picture yourself as successful, you will become successful.

Problem Solving

Problems, academic or social, may be challenging. You can have problems at home, problems at work and problems at school. You may have problems assigned to you as a project. The process for solving these problems applies to every scenario.

In order to solve a problem, it helps to keep your mind flexible and open. It may be necessary to step back and look at the problem from a different angle to understand it and to get the best solution.

The most important step is defining the problem. If you don't understand the problem, it will be next to impossible to solve it. Try to isolate the problem. Don't let other factors that are not pertinent to the problem enter into the definition. Sometimes you may not have enough information to define the problem. If this is the case, then you need to gather all the information that you need regarding the problem.

Make sure that you get all the pertinent information you can. Even if you don't use it, the information may be helpful with another problem later. You need to do research, check studies, and see experts. Look at past and present events that may affect the problems. Remember to isolate true evidence - facts - from personal opinion and bias.

The next step to solving the problem is to look at different solutions. See which ones are feasible and which are not. Try to look at the problem from several different angles. Then you need to decide which solutions have the most value. It helps to rank the values.

From the list of ranked solutions, choose the best solution that you can see. Be prepared for success, but be ready with another option if the solution doesn't work. You should always have a "Plan B" waiting.

Remember that as long as you have tried your hardest to come up with a good solution, then you have succeeded. The process involved in problem solving is as important as the outcome.

Learning Strategies

Two common learning strategies include the concept of thinking out loud and problem based learning. Both are effective strategies suited for different types of learners.

Thinking out loud is one way of mastering new knowledge. Private speech, also known as thinking out loud, was important to you as an infant and a young child. It gave you an opportunity to sound out your knowledge and your questions.

Thinking out loud is particularly useful in memorization, reading poetry and dramatic pieces, editing papers and working through mathematics problems. Using speech and hearing to reinforce your learning will be helpful in remembering the information.

Problem based learning is generated by your professor. You are given a problem, and you have to find the answer. Your teacher serves as a mentor and encourager.

Steps to solving the problem giving in this type of learning include exploring the issues by learning new ideas and concepts. It may help you to list what you know so you will figure out what you do not know. Write out and refine the problem in your own words. Come up with some possible solutions. Choose one as the best and work with it. Write down actions to be taken within a specified timeline and find out what you need to know. If you find out enough to support the solution that you chose, you can go ahead and write up the problem. If not, go back and choose another solution. Once your have your problem solved, present it to the teacher and the class.

It is important for you to find your correct learning style. Websites are available that provide surveys to find out your style. Your college counseling center will also have tests available. Once you understand the best way for you to learn, then you can begin to organize your notes and homework to best suit your style.

Sometimes in your academic career, you will find yourself having to interview experts in a field or subjects in a study. It is a good idea to plan your interview early so that you will be able to ask for all the needed information. If you show the person you are interviewing that you are serious and sure about your subject, you will get better information.

When you begin the interview, let the person know your subject. Research the subject before the interview, so you can ask intelligent and well thought out questions. It will make you look more professional, if you have a list of priorities or questions that you need to cover. Make sure that you carry pen, pencil, paper, tape or video recorders. Don't be caught short without the necessary supplies.

Always be on time or a bit early for an interview. Set up a relaxed atmosphere. Ask if the person wants to sign a consent form. When asking questions, don't hesitate to ask for clarification. It is better to get all the information the first time than to have to go back. Try to stay aware of the time limits.

At the end of the interview, offer to send a copy of the transcriptttion to the person. Say thank you. It is often a good idea to follow up with a written thank you. When you get back to your home or office, label and date the interview for easy reference. It is a good idea to go ahead and transcribe the interview while it is still fresh in your mind.

Multiple Source Studying

When studying, it a good idea to incorporate a variety of sources into your review. Use the textbook, the lectures and the handouts given by your professional. You also want to review the internet and any audiovisual material that is suggested. It may help for you to get interviews or read biographies of the people you are studying. Many people use fiction to get an idea of an historical time period or event. Original source material will be invaluable in your study.

It has been found that using more than one source while studying increases understanding and retention, providing the sources are used properly.

Sometimes one textbook is too hard to understand, and another source is needed. If you use other readings, you may get a broader understanding of the topic. Just be sure to analyze the readings carefully, especially if information does not agree. When you have information that does not agree with other information, take a few minutes to read and evaluate it. Try to use the material with your text in order to create a more accurate overall picture. Other sources will give you more facts and source material about your topic. Be sure to know the vocabulary in all your sources.

Go ahead and read your text then read other sources. Try to understand the similarities and differences in the texts. It may be helpful to use online sources to discuss the material.
