Most of us start off our semester with a list of goals, or at least a certain mindset for tackling school. Unfortunately, a lot of the time, this goes on for a few weeks and then it fades away. After going to class for a few weeks, you start to feel like you’ve gotten back into your old routine. Sometimes a routine is good, but when you set new goals for yourself, your old cycle may not be helping.
I always start off the school year thinking that I’m going to study more, spend more time at school, and do my homework right away. We all hope for those things, and then life happens and a few weeks into the semester we can’t even remember what our goals were. After letting this happen to me a few times, I decided to do something about it.
Last spring I was fired up and ready to conquer my schedule and then found myself six weeks later not doing anything I said I would. Instead of shrugging it off, I took out a pen and paper and wrote down all of the goals I had for the semester. After that, I wrote everything on a poster board and hung it in my room. I sat back, and just stared at what I had written.
Every single day, I woke up to my words on the poster and it kept me determined and on track. That semester, I made the best grades I’ve ever had in my college career. It’s about six weeks into the semester now, and I’m here to remind you about your goals, whatever they may be. You can have a successful semester, and it’s not too late to get back on track!
Do what it takes for you to remind yourself everyday of your goals!
