Bonus Procrastination-Fighting Tip

While the votes are coming in about your favorite of the five student-submitted tips, here's a tip from ELI Psychology Professor Dr. Corradino:

From Frederick the Great, King of Prussia, 1725-1795, to as recent as General George Patton in World War II, people have used a motto which I find very useful to conquer procrastination. “L’audace, l’audace, toujours l’audace,” meaning, “ Audacity, audacity, always audacity.” Often translated to mean “Act, Act, always Act!” I find if I look at the requirements, make a plan, and then “Act” I get things done. If I don’t “Act,” that is get off my rump and get to the task at hand, things do not get done.
