Default What can you do if you have a hard time studying consistently over a long period of time?

Have you ever said to yourself that you work well under pressure. Have you ever told yourself you can only work hard when the exam- whatever it is you have to achieve- is close. I used to be like that too. If you have felt the above then you know that thinking like this can make you not perform as well as you should, and sometimes result in failure. After we mess up what do we say to ourselves? I will not wait till last minute next time. Then what happens? You just do the same thing and put off your studying till the last minute. Why? Because you work better under pressure. I will share with you a new way of thinking to help you overcome this problem.
