ORGANIZATION AND PROCRASTINATION

My current organization method for school is to have a SEPARATE binder and journal for each class, but then I have one folder that I put all my homework in. I also use my planner so I can write down what I have for homework that night or what projects I have to do. I usually bring my folder and planner home daily, just so I can make sure that I don’t have any homework that I didnt hear about or something like that. I think my organizational method works pretty good, most of the time I can look in my planner at the end of the day and see if I have any homework. I rarely forget something at school because I have my planner.

I’ll admit, I have had many problems with procrastinating in the past, but one of my goals this year is to stop procrastinating so much and just get the work over with. Procrastinating hurts you because then you have to stress out over a project thats due tomorrow that you’ve had 3 weeks to work on. It’s just not the smart thing to do, but i will say that its the easiest.

We can fight procrastination by have accountability. If we have someone there to question you about when and if you have already done your work, then most of the time you, or at least I would want to finish it quick. I think that accountability is the best way to fight procrastination

Good Note Taking

Good note taking does not come easy at first, it takes time and practice like anything else. At first, you might want to write every single thing that the teacher says, which isn’t the smartest thing to do. I would start out with writing the key words that you think will be important in the future. Then, you can gradually start adding more description and explain more in depth what you think you need to know. Good note taking looks organized, easy to read, and easy to understand. Your notes shouldn’t be scribbles and sloppy. You can take notes anywhere you want and basically any time you want. Good note taking should be something that helps you, not something that you would be forced to do.

Lifestyle or Responsibility

If I had to choose between between lifestyle or being fiscally responsible, I would choose being fiscally responsible. I don’t want to have to go through life struggling from paycheck to paycheck. I’d rather sacrifice a few things that I would like to have so I can have some extra money, than to get those things I’d like and struggle.

Some pros of being fiscally responsible are you don’t have to worry about your money as much, you are self disciplined, and you know you have a backup plan if something goes wrong. I would think that you would stress a lot less if you know what you’re doing with your money.

Some cons of being fiscally responsible are you have to plan, you have to make smart decisions and you have to give up some things in order to meet your goal. You have to sit down and manage your budget so you don’t have to worry about it later.

Some pros of having the lifestyle I would like to have are not worrying about not having the things I want. Things like a new phone, new clothes, and other accessories.

But some cons of having the lifestyle I want are I would be in debt and be worrying about money all the time. I would stress myself out to the max worrying. At first, it wouldn’t be a big deal, but soon I would realize that I messed up and should’ve been responsible.

In conclusion, I would rather be fiscally responsible than have the lifestyle I want to have but worry about money. I want to not worry from paycheck to paycheck.I want to be happy more than I am stressing.
