Hello and greetings to everyone! Wherever you, I hope things are going well for you, that you are always striving to accomplish your goals and that the work you do every day is helping make this world a bit better. I’ve decided to discuss something that I briefly touched on last time but here again is a tip that I deem crucial for college success (and should be held near and dear to the heart for both potential college students as well as current ones)- ORGANIZATION.
Whether you have seven classes or four, eight clubs or two, one sport or none at all, keep a record of what needs to be done! Smaller things, like picking up a check from your job or dropping off an assignment to your teacher, can slip through the cracks of the mind just as easily as bigger things such as, for example, a 20 page paper that was due an hour ago. Write down what you need to do, what you want to do, and when it all needs to be done. It is a relatively simple task and yet some people constantly refrain from doing so, for reasons unknown to me. Stay on top of what needs to be done and you won’t be overwhelmed by whatever lies ahead.
You will undoubtedly acquire many small pamphlets and invitations informing you about upcoming events. This is wonderful! But don’t try to keep all of those random pieces of paper floating about. Jot down the important information from them (who, when, where, what, etc.) and keep that all together in your agenda/planner. College is a busy time with lots of new an exciting things to do! In order to take full advantage of this, try and accommodate things that catch your interest. Do what you say you will. Don’t take on too much and NEVER be afraid to ask for help.
Well, I’ve got to go. I hope everyone enjoys their Friday evening and the rest of the weekend safely! Chao!
