It's Monday, and you just got home from a long day of classes. You check your syllabus and notice that you have a big essay due on Friday. What do you do?
- Nothing? — you lost your syllabus weeks ago.
- Pull out your researched and well-organized outline and start writing!
- Think about it for 5 minutes and decide you can do it all Thursday night.
If you were freshman me, you chose 3. (Okay let's be honest it was probably 1 … or 4.)
But since then, I've slowly been working toward being a real adult and consistently picking 2, choosing to handle my responsibilities as soon as they arise.
