We all want to do well in college but that takes some hard work and some discipline. Not everyone finds college easy because if we did we would all have an education! If you really want to do well in college there is one main rule that you must follow. What is that rule? Continue to read below to find out what it takes and why the main rule is so important.
Classes – Make sure your classes are well organized and it is a schedule you’ll be able to follow. Whether you have one class a day, they are all online or you go just two days a week, make sure they work out with your schedule.
Homework – Always make time for homework. How can you do this? Organize your schedule properly so you have the time and you have certain days and times for when you do things.
Folders – ALWAYS have one folder for each subject. You always see those people that have one folder for each class and it takes them an hour to find a math paper that is in their history paper. Why? Simply get a folder for each class even if they are the .10 cent folders!
Work/School – Keep your job for working days and keep school for school days. Organize your life and only work on certain days and only do homework on others. You need days that you can rely on to do homework and you also need to be reliable for work as well so find something that works.
Study time – Once again, make time for school. This means you will have a time just for studying. This can be in the morning when you wake up, in between classes or even before you go to bed. Just make sure it gets done and that you make school your top priority.
Play time – Limit yourself to your play time with friends. This means if you want to go to the mall, the movies or just over a friends house make sure you make sacrifices or only do it if you deserve it and have all your work completed. It is so easy to say i’ll do my homework when I get home and then come home at 1 in the morning and then have to be up for school at 7 a.m. It won’t happen so don’t put yourself in those situations.
To succeed in college you must have oganization and discipline! In college there will be those night where you have to say no to your friends or no to working for your boss. College is very important and can make our future for the better or for the worse if we don’t finish. So, to make sure you do your best be sure to stay organized during college!
