Keep It In Order.

Go to class. Study. Go to work. Go to the Yearbook Office and pick up your assignments. Go to the E-Board Meeting. Go to that forum. Go to that General Body Meeting. Take notes. Finish this project. Go to that forum. Write Reports. Get this Article in, etc..

How hard was it for you to keep your priorities in order while you were in college?

Last semester, In my attempt to broaden my social horizons, it became more than evident to me that I started to lose focus on my initial priorities and goals. The energy I initially devoted to studying and completing schoolwork was now being funneled to extracurricular activities and work. Homework and studying took a backseat to working a temporarily full-time job, completing assignments for Yearbook and the various other things I was involved in last semester.

As much as I wanted to maintain everything and stick with everything through to completion, I couldn’t.  Upon looking at my grades at the end of the semester, I ended up walking away from all but one of my extracurricular activities in addition to not coming into work full-time anymore. 

Now that I’ve refocused on the important things, let’s see how it works out for me this semester.
