One of the easiest things in life must be the ability to put things off! Well, it certainly has been the case for me over the years. That moment when you decide, "I can do this later"..... I suppose we've all done it, some maybe more than others. It goes back to my blog last year, "Where do we find the time?" and time management. It is about prioritising things in order of importance and finding the balance between what we want and what we need.
As we are into our second half of the degree, things are slowly but surely beginning to get busier with a workload which quickly builds up. Homework, presentations preparations, group work and communication, our own business plan and a live event are only some of the things we need to stay on top of and if we allow ourselves to put things off, we will be creating a massive workload which might be too hard to handle later down the line.
It is therefore essential, and I have made it my goal, to do whatever I can can to complete any task, or make as much progress on any given task, as soon as I can. Not only should it make the entire job easier, preventing me from having to race against a deadline, but it is easier to remember what was said in class. I know it might sound easier said that done, but even an hour set aside after a lecture, could make a huge difference. So far so good..... let's hope I can keep it up and stay on top of things.
