Make a list before somebody gets hurt

 

 

One valuable thing that you can do to reduce your stress and make sure that you accomplish all the tasks that you need to do is to make a list. It’s one thing to say that you are going to do something, but when you make a concrete list about the tasks that you need to accomplish, you have a higher chance of actually accomplishing those tasks.

There have been many studies about how making lists actually boosts your chance of succeding. The basis of creating a great list focuses on these 5 aspects:

Focus

Focus on what you want to achieve and stick to that goal. Eliminate the second guessing and stick to one concerete idea. This will make your goal simple and attainable

Clarity

The more specific your goal is the easier it is for you and others to understand what it is you exactly what to do.

Direction

Have you ever started driving and didn’t know where the heck you were going? Your list should be as easy to understand as the directions on Google Maps. The reason why lists work is because give you a clear cut direction to where you want to go without diversion.

Priorities

Making lists helps you sort out what you actually want to do right now in the momment and what can wait for later. Organize your list in order of importance. By prioritizing, you will make better use of time and finish the tasks that you need to accomplish faster and have more time for freedom

Keep this in mind for finals week

“Work as hard as you can. If you aren’t working as hard as you can, someone else is out there working as hard as they can. Those people who are working harder than you deserve opportunities more than you do, so stop making excuses for why you aren’t working hard and just work hard. When you feel like you’re working as hard as you can possibly work, work a little harder and you are probably getting close to how hard you actually have to work. Do more shows. Take more classes. Watch more shows. Meet more people. Challenge yourself. Don’t expect anyone to hand anything to you. If you aren’t exhausted all the time, you probably aren’t working hard enough.”

All Nighters: The Buddy System

So, yesterday was my first all nighter in about a month. Let me tell you, this stuff isn’t easy. My tip for an all nighter: have an all nighter buddy. Trust me on this. Not only will you stay up together, you will keep each other accountable for doing work. Always remember the buddy system
