  • How successful were you at implementing the strategy or technique? What helped or impeded your success?
  • Did the strategy improve your learning or reduce your procrastination? What evidence do you have to support this claim?
  • Will you continue with the strategy?  Why or why not?

I was not very successful at implementing the strategy to help myself not procrastinate. My strategy was to use my agenda everyday so that I would know what I needed to get done. The plan was to use my agenda after every class and write down whatever was assigned in class that day. Then set an alarm on my phone at night that would remind me to check my agenda and see what I had to do. The thing that did not work was that most of the time after classes I would forget or did not have time to write in my agenda. The problem with that was that when I got home and my alarm went off, when I looked at my agenda nothing was written in it. The one thing that did work though is that I set my alarm for 6:00 pm, and when the alarm when off even though my agenda did not tell me what I had to do I remembered and would start doing my homework at 6:00 pm. Before I started attempting to use my agenda more I did not set an alarm and I would procrastinate and not start my homework till around 8:30 pm. I would typically get tiered while I was doing my homework but since I started it earlier I found it easier to focus and get the work done while I still had energy. I think that I will modify my original plan my putting what I need to get done in my alarms because the alarm part of the strategy seemed to work for my. For instance, I will set an alarm for 6:00 pm that says start your math home work, then set another alarm at around 7:00 pm that says start whatever other work I have and that will be a great way to still have the reminders while eliminating the use of my agenda because that strategy did not seem to work. By making adjustment to my original strategy, I believe that  I will be able o be more successful in my attempts to not procrastinate.
