How often have you underestimated how much time it will take to get something done? Then, how sad are you when you don’t have the time to do your best. If you finish a project earlier than you thought you would, then consider yourself ahead.
Don’t do it all:
It’s better to concentrate on a few things and excel in them than if you join every sport, activity and club that you can cram into your schedule.
Keep a calendar:
Deadlines creep up quickly. And the closer the date, the more you’ll feel the pressure. Most students don’t do their best under pressure. And colleges, scholarships, federal aid, and standardized testing services are not going to be sympathetic to any excuses you have about missing a deadline. If you miss a deadline, you miss an opportunity.
Take standardized tests early:
You won’t know how high you can score until you take the test. Wait too long and you won’t have enough time to retake it. And many things can affect your test score on any given day, including the state of your health, and you can’t plan not to get the flu or food poisoning. Taking the test early will also allow time to take a test prep course if necessary.
Do your research:
Know what the choices are when it comes to colleges. This way you can avoid any could you, should you, ‘would you’ regrets later in life. Research could be as simple as visiting a school’s website.
Try something new:
High school is a great time to spread your wings. It’s about new experiences and self-discovery. There’s no harm in calling up and asking if you have any doubt. Want to try a new sport or activity, go ahead and try it. This is a chance to start narrowing down your interests. You’ll never know what you like – or how good you are at something – until you try something
Stop doubting yourself:
If you doubt your own God-given talent and your own skills and abilities, you will only hold back the possibility of achieving the things you want to achieve. Start believing in yourself and in your potential to shine. 2015 is going to be a very fruitful year for you – just erase all of your doubts.
Wishing you a very happy and prosperous new year to fulfill all your dreams ahead….
