How to sync your work, studies and life perfectly
Is it possible? It is but you’ll have to work at it. You’ll need to stay focused, disciplined and driven. There will be steep climbs and sharp turns. But your hunger for success will sustain you through them. In this article, we share tips to help you sync work, studies and life perfectly. Whether you are pursuing a qualification in childcare management or hospitality, achieving that balance holds the key to success.
- Avoid procrastination
Procrastination is a false relief from the work that lies ahead. The time that could have been given to chip away at the work is wasted as a result. It only adds the pressure of time to the tasks waiting to be completed.
- The discipline of a schedule
Some people dismiss having a schedule because of its rigidity and inflexibility. They fail to recognise the benefits of allocating time to tasks that need to be done. A myth people have about schedules is it is a stretch of work without breaks. In reality, an effective schedule incorporates breaks.
- Minimise distractions
We live in the most distracted era of human civilisation, thanks to increasingly mobile social and digital media technology. With push notifications, one does not have to do anything to be distracted by a beep. While it has to some extent made us more efficient, technology has become overly intrusive. Keep them away when you are work or when completing an assignment. They take away more than just time; they will disrupt your train of thought and focus too.
- Healthy body, efficient mind
Pursing a career and course is physically demanding. When fatigue or illness befalls you, it impedes your progress. But you can take steps to ensure you are in good physical shape. Making time to run, workout or play sports is essential. Similarly having time with family and friends keeps your mind fresh.
