As we all know, all colleges follow a semester system. With some excitement about the upcoming semester and some pain that we have to leave our home and family for another six months, we all have two states in mind.
In that situation, we sometimes forget a few important things that we should do before a semester starts. Following these 5 simple things helps you in making your upcoming semester easier and manageable.
- Review what you learned last year
Connect your last year’s learnings with the upcoming semester and try to find out what good and bad you have done. As rightly said, “We always learn from our experience.” Plan about what you have to do in the next semester to make it even better than ever before.
- Create your “impossible list”
Try to look in yourself and find what are your major negatives or what are those things which you consider as “it’s impossible” for you to do them. Make a list of all those things. No one other than you can work to improve yourself. Look at that list daily and try to update that list by minimizing the tasks. Always challenge yourself for those tasks and complete them all one by one.
- Learn and follow the rule of THINK, PLAN and EXECUTE
For completing any simple or complex task with minimum error and fewer efforts always first THINK of all the situations which can arise, PLAN for the actions you are going to take and then properly EXECUTE them. Learn this rule and try to implement that for any task in any situation. Consistently follow this for better results in any given task.
- Check the next semester’s plan
Look for what’s new that is there for you in the upcoming semester’s plan. Check IPs, course details and have a look at what all subjects are there in your study plan. Try to get a basic knowledge of all subjects and start building interest in them, it will help you in maintaining good concentration in class and to score well in examinations.
- Get hands-on time management
“Biggest investment in life is time”, that’s the reason you should invest and spend your time with a proper plan. With a time-management schedule, one may be able to do efficient and more work than expected. Saved time can help you in doing many works. Completing a task on time gives a relaxed feeling and refreshes our mind.
Before a semester begins, there are so many things revolving in mind but we may be short of time to complete our tasks. Choose your goals and go hard for them.
Always keep a constant reminder in your mind to do all the above-mentioned things, so that it helps to lead you ahead of all others and boosts up your confidence.
Don’t watch the clock; do what it does. Keep Going.
