Do you practice effective study habits? Do you actually get on with your work when you want to?
If you keep putting it off because you can’t face it, get distracted or have a haphazard approach to your work, this one habit could make all the difference.
Whenever you get given work, do it tomorrow.
Whatever task, project or assignment you’re given, start working on it the day after you get it.
Don’t worry about how much time you spend on it (unless you’ve got a really short deadline).Just make sure you actually do something daily.
The important thing is to get started on it and keep working on it, until it’s done.

Whenever you get given work...
Do It Tomorrow!
