1.31.17 What time management strategies did you use last semester? How well did they work?

2.07.17-Procrastination occurs usually when we're not comfortable. Reflect on what makes you uncomfortable, how procrastination has impacted your life, and what and why you prefer process over product.
The idea of not being able to accomplish something makes me the most uncomfortable, because it is at that moment that I feel like a failure. Growing up, procrastination has always been a habitual trait instilled within me, and without a shadow of a doubt it has caused me minor setbacks. However, I have always been an individual to lose all hope, faith, or what have you, then gain it back through life experiences itself. Like the great Mr. Langston Hughes said in his work "Mother to Son", 'Life ain't always been no crystal stair". Still, I have managed to get through my many obstacles; procrastination for me comes with the lethargic feelings I get from my Major Depressive Disorder also. Yet, I'd choose this route over any other, because its authenticity is all about ME. With all that being said, I choose process over product, because it gives me the time and the peace of mind to actually gather and plan for great things; which is all I want for the overall outcome of my future.
