Procrastination Emergency Kit:
The aim of the Procrastination Emergency Kit is to replace the bad habit of procrastination with the good habit of being in action.
You don’t need to be highly motivated to be able to do this. Even the laziest students can train themselves to be in action. This is the beauty of habits.

What are habits?
Habits are behaviours you’ve performed so many times that you do them without even thinking.
Habits save your precious brainpower for the things that are most important to you.
Why use a Habit Tracker?
You don’t have to use the Habit Tracker but we find it really helps!
The Habit Tracker makes your progress using the Procrastination Emergency cards visible. It helps you see that you’re moving forward and getting runs on the board. And when you can see that you’re making progress, this boosts your motivation.

Optional: Colour-Coding Your Habit Tracker
You may wish to use one colour if the strategy worked for you (i.e. it helped you break the tendency to procrastinate), another colour if the strategy didn’t work and perhaps another colour if you really liked the strategy (coding it as a super strategy).
It doesn’t matter what you do. Just keep your colour-coding system simple!
What’s the point of colour-coding?
At the end of the month you can glance at your Habit Tracker and pinpoint the strategies that work well for you.
You want to keep using those strategies because those are the ones that deliver results!
