Here are some helpful hints on how to juggle that study, work and life challenge.
1. Manage your time
Learning the art of time management is invaluable. Having diary is useful, but using the calendar on your phone or tablet means you will always have your diary with you. Plan your whole work/study week and what you have to accomplish really helps. Don’t leave things to the last minute – it will only cause you pain and many sleepless nights!
2. Have a goal
Setting yourself a goal each week can also assist you when it comes to keeping a work-study-life balance. You may have an assignment due and a friend’s birthday party to attend the same weekend. Make it your goal at the start of the week to complete (or at least begin!) your assignment so that you can still have a life.
3. Don’t procrastinate
Procrastination is like a credit card: it’s a lot of fun until you get the bill. Sometimes cleaning the oven, mowing the lawn or washing the walls may seem more appealing than starting or finishing an assignment, but remember, the earlier you start, the earlier you finish!
4. Remember you are only human
Work and study can have its pressures and demands, try to remember that you can only do what you can do. If you are currently enrolled in a course or considering a qualification through Elite Colleges, remember there are options available to you.
