Introduction

Sometimes we all find that we do not have enough time to accomplish the things that matter to us.

Sometimes we have to sit down and question our self, what we want in our life instead of wasting the precious time in some unhealthy event. Time waits for no one, so make sure that we are clear about our inner desires and determined to achieve them! In my academic life, I am clear about what I am going to do and which assignment has to be done on that day. For example, if I set a goal of completing the English assignment by this evening, I will complete it on time and will not leave the assignment until the next day. I will not get distracted easily by an invitation from a friend to attend a party or event. In my personal life, to find out what my goals are, SMART goal setting method helps! SMART stands for Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Timely. Setting specific goals help me to focus on my efforts and knowing what I am doing at the moment.

Conclusion

In my academic life, I will sleep earlier and try not to overeat before going to bed because getting a good night's sleep helps me to do well in school. Besides that, I also prepared a note book for each subject so that I will be listening and writing down on what the lecturer is teaching. By this way, I can keep my mind focus in the class and I won't be daydreaming like there is no tomorrow. In my personal life, in order for me to stay focus on the tasks that I want to accomplish, I will make sure I consume enough of nutrition daily. I will start my day off with a healthy and well-balanced breakfast before I go to school so that I won't be starving in the class and I can fully focus on the lessons. I can't agree more based on this statement, "Breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a beggar" Besides that, I also drink a lot of water, which most of the people think that it is not important. Water is vital for our body to function efficiently and stay hydrated. Dehydration can lead us to tiredness, slow and at the end we can't perform well in the things we do. ...read more.
