Experience and the time-tracking activity suggested later in this chapter should help you develop more realistic estimates of the time needed for assignments. As a procrastinator, you may also fool yourself into believing that you do your best work under pressure, a belief that tends to be reinforced if your last-minute work results in good grades.

You’ll need to choose which format works best for you, and you may also need a combination—say, pages broken down by day to see what you need to do in a given day, but also including a monthly view so you can see looming deadlines.
