Good morning ECU. It’s another glorious Wednesday and boy are we so close to the end of the semester. Some of us are graduating, some of us are taking summer classes (me), and some of us will be returning in the fall. Whatever category you fall in, enjoy this last month and stay focused.
Although this semester is almost over, my next couple of weekends are booked with fun getaways with the wife and family. I have been really focused over the past couple of months and as I have previously stressed, it is important to balance a social and educational realm. My grades are important and I have been doing very well, so I will be studying really hard during the week, and releasing my stress on the weekend. Thankfully I will be sitting on the beach a majority of the time so I can bring my laptop with me and still work without the pressure of deadlines.
Stay focused, remind yourself during the week that you may have a fun event planned for the weekend so you have to study hard now. It’s those small sacrifices we make during the present that allow for great rewards in the future. These are just my sacrifices that I make during the week so yours may be different. Maybe go to bed earlier, wake up earlier, don’t go downtown during the week, make visits to the library, etc…
Find out what works best for you and ATTACK. It can be said that anything is possible if you make up your mind and put 100% into that activity. Think about something that you really wanted in life, something HUGE, and now you have. How hard did you actually work to accomplish this goal? So stay focused for the final stretch of this 2014 Spring semester. If you need help use the tools ECU provides for you. I look forward to seeing you next week and reporting on my vacation.
