Turning Assignments In On Time

"Do you have any suggestions for helping me turn in my college assignments on time?"

by Sandy Maynard


To change your behavior, you must start placing as much value on the timely completion of your assignments as you do on their overall quality.

List the characteristics that make you proud of your work—it's original, unconventional, and so on - and add "completed on time" to that list. In addition, set deadlines for completing portions of each assignment, rather than thinking only of the project's final due date.

Finally, schedule appointments with your professors to get feedback about your ideas, discuss an outline, or review your progress. This holds you accountable—and shows your professors that you've gotten serious about meeting deadlines.
