|Postponing tasks or routines that can be put off until your school work is finished can be the most difficult challenge of time management for college students. It is tempting to succumb to unexpected opportunities that look appealing,. The result can sometimes be seen in poor performance on a test, on a paper, or in a work of art. The trick is to remember that distracting activities will be more enjoyable later without the pressure of the test, assignment, etc. hanging over your head. Try to think in different terms. You are not missing out on something fun, you are postponing the opportunity. Instead of saying “no” learn to say “later”.
