I am tweaking Elijah’s assertion. I believe that with anything that God calls us to do, he provides a way to do it. Thus, unless your teacher is unjust, there really is a button that you can push, except that this button may not be easy. I will grant that it may be literally impossible to get all of ones school done, but, as Katy said, that is what extensions are for. If, however, someone regularly fails to finish something and does not even bother to ask for an extension, I would be willing to say that he may not be making the sacrifice necessary to push the difficult button. I’m not saying that if an assignment is hard to assume that you deserve an extension, I am saying to search if the “disconnect between Tuesday and Monday” is not personal fault.
