Sometimes you need to step back and take a step back in order to gain a perspective that will enable you to see clearly. For example when I was a university student I went through a time where I couldn’t focus on anything because I was so distracted. I started to procrastinate and neglect all of my assignments. I stopped going to group meetings and I just laid back for most of the semester. When the winter holidays came around and I had little to do, I went out with my friends and I couldn’t focus on anything because all I could think about was getting through my last few exams!
This kind of behavior was not only disrupting my studies but it was hurting my teaming position. It was frustrating to see so many students like me who were trying so hard and yet not getting the results they wanted. My advise to you is to never let this happen to you. You need to take your university work seriously and you need to ensure that you are giving 100% for every project. And, most importantly, you need to have time to complete whatever task you are given.
Procrastination can be very difficult to break when you are trying to get through your university years. But the best thing to do is to start taking action and to stop putting it off. Taking action now will get you closer to achieving your goals and it will give you more confidence as you move towards graduation and your professional career.
Take a course. Don’t put it off. The sooner you start, the more time you will have to devote to each assignment and to the university as a whole. This will really pay off once you start obtaining your degree!
I have been employed by a number of different companies and I really enjoy it. But it is not something I want to do forever. It would be so much better for me if I was simply offered the chance to take my teaming role and to find out what the fun about it is. I want to do it for the long term and I know I can do that because I am in a position right now where things are really moving in the right direction. I just need to take my teaming role seriously.
So, my advice to you is to take this seriously too. Be certain that the university that you choose to attend has an excellent reputation for teaming. If they don’t, move on to the next one. That way, you will have the best of the best and you can learn so much from those organizations as well.
You might also want to try to get into some volunteering programs that are geared for your particular field. That way, you can take care of the day to day aspects of your work while still making connections, building relationships and fostering a passion for your particular area of study. A great example would be volunteering at a kids sports camp. It’s a great way to meet new people and to build relationships while you are growing your skills as an athlete. The kids come back from camp with incredible memories and they will be more than impressed with how much you cared about their college experience!
