Instead of studying I spend most of the time for sleeping, chatting and thinking about evrything out of the study... I'm lazy. Hardly can I get up early for preparing the lesson in the morning. In class, I am not concentrated on the teacher's explanation. I often think about everything outside the lesson. I usually fel sleepy in the class. When I start to study I feel dizzy. After that I stop studying and do another thing. I had many of races against time when the term-test came. I leart in hurry and no turning back. I failed to the exam. I got a lousy hand. My parents were sad. They couldn't believe in me anymore because I made too much mistakes. I gave some advice to myself. I force myself to change the bad habit. I am trying to overcome it day by day.
The question : are you guided by the life on the events ? or do you guide your life and the events ?
Think about your goals, your real goals. Are your daily actions orientated to your real goals ?
Do you sleep enought and regularly (always about at the same hours) ?
Each thing at its time. There is a time for each thing. (in your week)
Each thing at its place. There is a place for each thing. (in your room)
It means that you are more effective if you don't do too many things in the same time.
First end that what you have not ended, before beginning new things.
Too many people spend too much time to think about how they should be organized.
The best way to lose time is to do things twice. (Do it at once perfectly.)
If you spend too much time chatting, fix one limit of time, and respect it.
Do your "activities" really bring you something useful ? are you really active (watching tv is not active, and not the best way for resting) ?
Concentrate yourself only in what you are doing. [Each thing at its time.] It is said that non-concentration comes from fear of not controlling the people around, or fear of them looking at you. Actually, there can be many others causes.
Manage the flux of information : take only those which are useful. Each read information takes some place in your unconsciousness, in your daily life. Refuse the advertising (stamp on your letter box), avoid the newsletters. Sometimes (a week-end) make a total order in your room (and in your head) : What will you keep ? does it really bring you anything ?
avoid smoking and drugs
don't listen too much time music. Even low, it makes us tired.
spend time discussing with friends (not in the virtual life)
good daily nutrition and daily sport
And smile !
