“We have become a society of dilly-dallyers.”
Brian Bergman (from the article “Guilt-Free Goofing Off” in Maclean’s magazine)
Like most students, you probably have too much on your plate. Yet consider this interesting saying: “If you want something done, ask the busiest person you know to do it.” In other words, productive people are often the most organized.
The truth of this saying most likely will become more evident after you learn the organization strategies and do the assignments in this chapter. If you feel that you are lacking in these skills, fear not—you can learn them. And keep in mind that with a little practice, a new behavior can become a habit in about 21 days.
