Getting Started Again After the Weekend
You will find that Sundays will become a major study day as you try to catch up on work missed from the previous week. You will also use Sunday to get ahead on work you need to do for the next week.
If you are like most students, you will find it tough to get started on Sunday. Here are some ways you can make sure you use your time wisely:
- Prime the Pump – Water wells used to have a container of water beside them. You needed to use the water to get the pump started. You might want to prime the pump by starting with work that is easy to do. Once you get started, then it’s easier to continue.
- Park Down Hill – Older stick shift cars often needed to be jump started. If you had one of these older cars, you learned to park downhill in order to start your car. One way to get started on your work is to leave some work undone. It’s often easier to motivate yourself to finish this work than it is to start something new.
- Find a Study Partner – It’s easier to get started when you have someone you work with. When you commit to another person, it’s more likely that you will follow through.
- Go to the Library – When you absent yourself from your room by going to the library or similar location, you are more likely to get your work done. You wont have the distractions that are found in your room.
If you follow these strategies, you are setting yourself up for a good week. Conversely if you don’t use your Sunday time wisely, you are digging a hole for yourself.
