Lots of people have this notion of carrying out their assignment on their own without nobody’s help, so that they would get the credit alone. Most times, such people don’t really last long.

Personally, I can not work or read for two hours straight. I would go blank if I do. I take breaks such as listening to music, gisting or chatting.
It is advisable to take breaks between work, so as to fresh and boost your memory.
4. Set a Deadline.

Commitment is very essential. Sticking to your deadlines makes you productive.
