My Mom was a former third-grade teacher, so she was a great instructional resource for me.
My biggest school weakness was procrastination. I always put off my homework until the last minute, and didn’t even like to think about major school projects. But Mom offered a simply remedy.
“Don’t try to tackle the entire project at once,” she advised. “For instance, thing of a term project as a series of short assignments you can link together.”
Following this strategy, my big projects because less daunting, so I would go to work on them sooner. That meant I actually turned most of them in on time, which improved my grades.
