In student years, time is critically not enough. You have to have time to study, earn extra money, fall in love, go on dates and, of course, attend music festivals that give a lot of positive emotions.
So while studying at the institute, the ability to manage your time is almost more important than in adulthood. Not without reason, many people consider the student years the most active and eventful period of their lives. Let’s talk about how to manage your time so that it’s enough for everything, and even left in reserve. A few tricks will help with this.
1. Do Not Put Off Everything Until the Last Moment
We are arranged that way, so we always leave things to the last minute. And we ourselves know perfectly well that if we start in advance, then we will manage to do everything without stress and hassle. It is one thing to teach a ticket a day a month before the exam, and it’s another to try to learn the entire program on the last night. Or you can write a term paper by the page per day, or you can try to do it in one sitting. Motivating yourself to do everything in advance is very difficult. Come up with a reward system for sticking to your schedule.
2. Decompose All Complex Cases into Many Small Tasks
The list should not be abstract things such as “write a thesis.” There should be simple and understandable things that it is desirable to do in less than two minutes: “write a title for the thesis”, “draw up a plan”, “send a plan for confirmation to a professor”, “write the first 5 pages”. How saying goes, it is much easier to eat an elephant, cutting off a small piece from it.
3. Set Priorities
As you know, 80% of the result brings only 20% of the effort. In this case, it is better to do five things by 80% and reach a total of 400%, than to finish one single task by 100%. So you can visit 5 music festivals out of 7, but also do 5 homework out of 7. By the way, music, in principle, positively affects our brain, which you can write about in one of the essays that you need to hand in while in university.
If you don’t have enough time, you can order a research paper on music therapy and subsequently not only get a good grade, but also prove to the professor that you are not just wasting time at music festivals, but conducting music therapy.
4. Find the “Middle Ground”
I advise you not to choose one of the two, but to find a middle ground now and follow it until the end of your life. A hybrid that will include a “partying” and “studying.”
This scheme is necessary for two main reasons:
If you don’t worry about the future and party until 23-25 years old, then you will party…
