When you are assigned an important presentation for work or school, do you prefer to work on it right away so that you can work on it a little bit every day, or wait until you have a good idea about the presentation?

Organizing is one of the most factors in achieving success in human life. It helps people to be punctual and responsible. Some people consider that the best way to do work is waiting until a good idea about the presentation comes to mind. Many others prefer to work a little bit every day. In my view, the last viewpoint is the better one, and dividing the presentation for work into small segments is preferable for two main reasons, which I will explore in the following essay. To begin with, it gives you more time to prepare yourself for better responses and unpredictable changes. For example, in the early stage of the work, you can start with the draft and show it to your boss. In this way, you can minimize your mistakes at the beginning, and things are going well. My personal experience is a compelling illustration of this. Last year, I defended my thesis and graduated from University. Lots of my classmates could not graduate because they got stuck with their thesis. My success was because I divided my work into small pieces and showed my thesis to my supervisor, so he found some mistakes in my calculations and told me how to fix my errors. This helped me identify the best way, gave me a clear view of the work, and finally provided me highest grade in the class. This experience taught me that the best way to prepare a presentation is to divide it and expand the work process. Moreover, the everyday presentation gives more confidence and less stress. Waiting for a good idea, you cannot be sure it will come or not. This lack of time makes you more anxious, nervous, and stressful and thus results in a bad presentation. One of my university friends worked on a research project to demonstrate my point. He started to make it at the end of his research. Because he had no time to prepare himself to make it as good as he could with more time, he spent nights working on his presentation, resulting in low concentration, stress, and aggressive behavior. Due to these events, he cannot make the correct presentation. These events would never happen if he had prepared his presentation step by step, not whole at once. To sum up, I firmly believe that to do the best presentation. It would help if you worked on it continuously over time because this gives you more time for preparation, details, and less stress.
