Procrastination Rarely Pays
Throughout high school, I was typically able to put off a task until the last minute, then chug a cup of coffee and knock it out. Well, as it turns out, you usually can't do that at a collegiate level, especially with big projects and papers. I learned the importance of beginning a large commitment early, then dedicating a few hours a day to it to ensure it gets done right. It's something I've carried over into the deadline-driven real world.
