Oh, my word.
Time has flown! I survived finals, thankfully. With that, I have embarked on a new term; new classes, new people, new schedule, new assignements, new life, essentially.
So I have resorted to a "new term, new me" kind of motto this go-around.
I'm excited. But anyone who knows me, knows that I am not able to break habits easily. I tend to get into a routine, regardless of whether or not it works, and stick to it simply because it is what's comfortable to me. It's what I know.
But I have realized that I cannot afford to be comfortable. I will go nowhere, achieve nothing. Life is way too short.
I've seen the quote posted above multiple times, but I recently recalled it to memory, because now it is actually applicable to my own lifestyle. Time truly is the one and only thing that all people possess. Time is the one thing that is going to pass, no matter what happens- and it is your own choice on how to spend it. Personally, I've decided to spend it bettering myself.
This whole time-managment thing goes much further than filling planners and having alarms to tell you what appointments and To-Do's need to be accomplished by the end of the week. Time managment, for me, takes into consideration the steps I have to take in how I plan on creating the life I want today and the future I aim to possess tomorrow.
It's being smart with school- absorbing the material rather than learning and purging; dedicating your entire mind and body into self-betterment through an almost impossible balance of productivity and relaxation; learning your own weaknesses and making a conscious effort to modify them; and ultimately striving to become that version of yourself that get a glimpse of every now and then, in your imagination.
