Five Reasons from the wonderful Xina Gooding Broderick
You didn’t set aside sufficient time to complete your course so create a timetable. Build in compassion. Build in flexibility and re-schedule. Adjust for it. And move in. We’re going for progress, not perfection.
You didn’t realise it would be as challenging as it is. See Barbara Oakley on ‘Learning How To Learn’. The physiology of procrastination and defeat. Do study skills. Know your learning style. Get plenty of rest. Find a way to embed that learning. Podcasts. Take them on a walk.
You didn’t ask for help when you needed it. Speak to your tutor or teacher. Keep asking until you understand. You need to understand this.
No accountability. When left to your own devices.
You downgraded your requirement for completing it. What are your pros and cons. Every component to decide if this is correct for you in the first place.
