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

Energy Drink Advice

Just because energy drinks are 2/$5.00 doesn’t mean you should buy 2. If you do however buy both, and intend on drinking them both in the same day, also eat a hearty meal in between the two (preferably a meal without lots of sugar). Energy drinks are DANGEROUS on an empty stomach help no one’s productivity. This is especially true once the jitters kick in and you being to feel ill. You don’t want your energy drink to hinder your progress on finals instead of help it.

So remember, careful with the energy drinks and caffeine, and stay calm if you’ve gone to class and payed attention you’ll probably do fine.
