Save Work for Later? Or Do it Now?

So what’s better, doing schoolwork first to get it out of the way, or doing it at the last minute? Well it really doesn’t matter. Here’s why…

I used to always do my work right away when I came home from school and then have the rest of the night to do whatever I want. That’s pretty good, but there is another alternative. School is so tiring that I’ve been coming home and doing nothing for a while, then doing work later. Parents argue that it’s better to do the work first. If we analyze this scientifically (meaning that we assign two variables to be either constant, increasing or decreasing), we’ll find out why this doesn’t matter. The scientific statement: No matter when work is done, your free time will remain constant and your workload time will remain constant. This means that if you have, for instance, three hours of work, you can either work from 3PM to 6PM and spend from 6PM-whenever you go to bed doing whatever you want. Or, you can do nothing until 9PM and do the three hours of work after this. Either way, you still had free time before doing your work (if you chose to do it later) or had free time after the work (if you chose to do it right away).

Take weekends… If you do nothing on Friday and Saturday and work all of Sunday night, it’s the same thing as working all night on Friday and doing nothing on Saturday and Sunday. See what I mean?

In conclusion, don’t worry if you do work at the last minute. We all do and it forces us to get it done. If it’s not due for a while, we just put it off because there are better things to do. What does it matter when schoolwork is done. As long as a student finished the work done and does well in school, then that’s great! We’re happy for you.

P.S – It’s almost 1 AM on a Sunday night. I just finished my work 🙂
