"Procrastination is the thief of time." —Edward Young
Procrastination can feel like a major hurdle to overcome throughout your graduate and professional career. You are not alone! Procrastination is a vicious cycle that we all suffer from time to time.
In this workshop we will discuss: why we procrastinate, what it really means when we do, and how our brains are involved. We’ll also cover effective ways to restructure your life and schedule to minimize procrastination and increase motivation.
