I am a visual person. Keeping a calendar on my wall with reminders, meetings, tasks, and events written in for each day helps me stay organized and on top of things. Paul Wesselmann describes a goal as a vision – something that you can look forward to and picture in your mind. Hanging up a poster or a sticky note of an important goal in a spot where I will look every day motivates me to accomplish it. I also keep to-do lists and a list of assignments for each class in my phone so when I think of something I need or want to do I can immediately take note of it.
Making sure that my goals are realistic, specific, and time-bound will allow me to focus my efforts and stay organized.
Surrounding myself with people who care about me and my future and who want to see me succeed will help achieve my goals by encouraging me and keeping me accountable.
Keeping a positive attitude, a good sleep schedule, and a cup of coffee nearby will go a great distance. Procrastination always seems to get in the way when I have a negative outlook on something or when I’m extremely exhausted.
