With three midterms coming to destroy me next week, I am welcome to all effective forms of tips and encouragement – whether it’d be against the procrastination, the tough material, or the sheer pressure of doing bad itself.
While most of those tips are good, I found this few especially helpful:
– get more sleep
No ****, but its really hard to do, especially if you’re a procrastinator like me.
– setting clear boundaries
This is a refreshing idea. Basically you shouldn’t be making yourself “study 4 hours a day”, but try to set rational boundaries such as “absolutely no gaming or distractions or web-surfing before 6 PM.”
ZenHabits says focusing is actually less exhaustive than doing something in a “wishy-washy” way. I am guessing because you eliminate yourself of all the doubt and all the false impressions of “omg this is so hard” that otherwise stress and make you frustrated.
In the end, its all just a struggle between discipline and distractions…
