What’s Your Prize?

Going from Ds and Fs to 3rd-in-my-class with an A meant switching from hardly studying in the American River College cafeteria to consistently finishing my homework every Tuesday and Thursday (the same days homework was assigned) at home. This “same day” cycle was crucial because I’m lazy AF and it’s easy for me to “put it off ’til tomorrow” (which always ended up being Sunday night at 10pm – UGH).

Question: What motivated me to switch routines – and stay disciplined?

Answer: I wanted a 100% care-free, pressure-free, panic-free, cram-free Sunday. That’s it! That’s all I wanted.

Finishing my homework on Tuesday and Thursday (the days it was assigned) meant I got the exact prize I was after: a care-free Sunday!
