Cram Early

This is my best time management tip. This also one of my best stress reduction strategy.

Most people worry about deadlines. Deadlines give them much unnecessary stress. But our lizard brain is afraid of deadlines, specially those deadlines given to us by other people. This is why we procrastinate.

Procrastinators eventually cram. They’ll attempt to do in three hours what they failed to start and finish in three months. Cramming works because our brains can do magic.

To reduce unnecessary stress, cram early. Don’t wait for three months. Start at once. And keep on until you get things done.
