In today’s episode, we’re going to be talking about productivity and procrastination, but with a special focus on STUDENTS.
90% of students procrastinate, but the reasons are very different than with adults.
We’re going to dive into that, and we’re going to share some special strategies to help the students in your life manage their time, develop smart study skills, and become FUNCTIONAL procrastinators.
Even if you don’t have kids (student-age or otherwise), there’ll be lots of productivity tips that can help anyone.
