The Early Bird Catches the Worm
Do you ever arrive to appointments early, or finish projects, deadlines, assignments ahead of time? If not, why not?
When I was in graduate school, I decided to complete all my reading assignments several days prior to their due date. This allowed me to enjoy my week without having the readings hanging over my head and it also meant I did not feel scrambled and pressured the night before. Thus, I was able to enjoy what I was reading and also had time to organize my thoughts.
