Attempting too much at once. Taking on too many projects, taking too many classes, or agreeing to too many social events.
Procrastination. When you put off until tomorrow what can be done today you lose "today" forever.
Perfectionism. Having to do things perfectly, or doing it alone when help is available.
Not saying "no." Distractions, parties, or favors for others keep you from doing what you need to be doing.
Personal disorganization. A messy desk, poor study skills, or no set study schedule lead to wasting time trying to get organized before getting anything done.
Unrealistic time estimates. Underestimating the time it takes to write papers, read notes, study for tests, and do homework leads to a serious backup as the school term progresses.
Lack of self-discipline. This could be a result of lack of interest, poor health, or unclear goals.
