College Success Skills by Obaapa. 3 February 2021.
(Sound bite of a new beginning)
OBAAPA, HOST:
Hello and welcome to my podcast. I am your host, Obaapa, and today I am going to talk about
college success skills. In this episode, I will address four skills that will easily transform a low
performer to an A student.
(Sound bite of inspire)
The first skill is avoiding procrastination. Before I explain the effects of procrastination on
college performance, let’s begin by understanding a procrastinator’s mind.
According to Tim Urban’s Ted Talk, a procrastinator’s mind consists of three characters: a
rational decision-maker, an instant gratification monkey, and a panic monster” (Tim). Tim says
that the monkey is the cause of procrastination since it diverts a person's attention from necessary
unpleasant tasks to easy and fun activities that do not involve working on the task ahead.
Furthermore, Tim Urban explains that due to close deadlines, the panic monster appears and
forces the monkey to disappear, leaving a person with little time to work on a task that would

information, it is clear that good time management will help a student eliminate procrastination.
Therefore, attaining these skills will enhance college success since both enhance learning by
ensuring that a student performs school activities at the right time.

The third skill is avoiding plagiarism. First, what is plagiarism?
Plagiarism is copying work done by another person and claiming it as ours. So simple, right?
However, the mind-blowing part is that there are thirteen, I repeat, thirteen types of plagiarism.
These types are identity theft, copycat, mitosis, cherry-picking, recycling, ghost citations,
remixing, warp, half-n-half, mosaic, miscue, reflection, and half-hearted (Newbold). For a more
in-depth understanding, search the internet for these terms since the information is widely
available.
So, what does plagiarism do to your grades?
Plagiarism leads to deducted marks, failure of the unit, and, in extreme cases, it can lead to
failing the whole course. Imagine failing an entire course due to a lack of knowledge on what is
right and wrong. Therefore, the only way to avoid plagiarism is to learn more about the thirteen
