Successful people thrive on goals, therefore if you wish to be satisfied at the end of this session, you should set some goals .
Here are five smart goals you could set for this new term.
This trait is gradually dying off, but it is really one you should work on. Being punctual to school and lectures will improve your reputation and also save you some stress.
Consider this scenario, a dull student gets to school early each day while a brilliant student arrives late. The dull student gets appointed as the school time regulator,the brilliant student misses out on this appointment. Why? He is not punctual.
Another brilliant student always arrives late to class and ends up blaming the teacher's method of teaching.In reality, he missed the root of the lecture and therefore got lost in the middle of the lecture.
Here's the thing, when you arrive school or class early, you have enough time to settle down and get ready for what comes next.
Here are some tips to help you achieve this goal
1.Waking Up Early : If you wish to wake up early then you should go to bed early. Set an alarm with your device or you could get your parents wake you up.
2.Being Neat and Organized : This will save you the stress of having to look for some school stuff in the morning, when you should be on your way to school.
3.Do Not Wait For Others :Some students leave home early but still get to school late because they were waiting for other students.
If your friends make you get to school late, then you must learn to go without them.
4.Avoid Distractions : Some sights on your way to school could make you not meet up with your goal, therefore try to avoid them by taking alternate routes.
