Building Momentum and Fighting Procrastination in an LMS Course, Pt. 4
Whether it’s put-off LMS coursework or a dreaded discussion, procrastination can be a major and snow-balling problem. It may result in stress, a sense of guilt, the loss of productivity in work, projects, or LMS coursework; or even a personal crisis. It can create disappointment of loved ones for not fulfilling one’s commitments or responsibilities.
A combination of any of these feelings can produce more anxiety, leading to more procrastination, leading to more anxieties, and so on.
But it doesn’t have to be that way. The anxieties that build up and cause procrastination can be prevented when a procrastinator recognizes the problem and takes positive steps to eradicate it. Identify the root cause of the procrastinating. Have you saved a lengthy LMS assignment for the last minute, and now the task seems too daunting to tackle? Don’t think too much about it. Take small steps and have faith that they’ll add up to something big.
