In honor of the ever-growing list of homework and tasks I need to get done, I thought I’d step into the realm of psychology to discuss procrastination.
In the premier episode of “We Need To Talk,” hosts Sophia Adamucci and Connor Lange discuss a topic that plagues many college students — procrastination and why it occurs to so many.
Most of the time, people know what needs to be done and when it needs to be done but choose to procrastinate instead. For students and workers, this is a deadly habit that can result in unemployment, low grades, or, in general, overwhelming stress. It goes like this. You put off that assignment one day and your grade drops. Now, the next day, you have to do that assignment and whatever else is due that day. Let’s say you don’t finish that and now another assignment is late. It’s a vicious cycle and, if you get too lost in it all, you won’t be able to break out of it.
