“What harm could it do, after all it’s just one day, not that big of a deal.” Then I thought back to not even two weeks prior, I had a lab report due in chemistry; I had been sitting at home on a Sunday night and had every intention of doing my report but then, as soon as I got my computer out, I lost all motivation to type it. Before, writing my lab-report had sounded like a great idea, you know, to get ahead and all but now all, I wondered was, “do I have time later this week, and what game is on?” When Monday rolled around and the Friday deadline one step closer I got home from a difficult practice, sat down, ate, and realized, “I have practice tomorrow morning. I’m tired. I’m going to bed. It can wait.
It is important to look at all the things that surround one’s dealings. If these things are not rendered, the outcome will cause one to disgracefully discontinue that which he is doing. One must recognize what it is that he is getting into before actually partaking in it. Epictetus states it clearly: For each action, consider what leads up to it and what follows it, and approach it in the light of that. Otherwise you will come to it enthusiastically at first, since you have not borne in mind any of what will happen next, but later when difficulties turn up you will give it up disgracefully…You must either work on your ruling principle, or work on externals, practice the art either of what is inside or of what is outside, that is, play the role either of a philosopher or of a non-philosopher.
I wrote the introduction one day then worked on the remainder of the essay over the next three days. Once I had the introduction thought out I knew exactly where I wanted the story to go. I re-read the essay twice to make sure I did not leave any important details out of the story I was telling. Proofreading is no one’s favorite part of writing and I am certainly no different. I did not spend as much time proofreading as I should have.
In the end it doesn 't really matter what other people think of you, the things that you told other people that you were going to do, “I 'm going to lose 10 pounds this month.” They really don 't care. It 's great yes, and they 're going to cheer you on to that but it 's really important to keep the promises that you made to yourself. That 's the big takeaway for today; setting a goal even if it 's small, following through, and making yourself believe that you 're going to do what you said you 're going to do.
Burnouts are a very serious matter and should be taken at the upmost significance. The one thing that a person does not want to do is try to overcome the exhaustion and proceed with their daily activities as they would only cause further damage physically and emotionally. Stress relieving is the main goal after a burnout. Cutting back from the activity participation is key, or taking a break completely. “It feels almost impossible sometimes to slow the pace at which we race through our days.
Up until now life has been pretty easy. But, now that we are moving into another stage of our lives we will be burdened with new responsibilities and commitments. If there is any hope for anyone of us to succeed at what we have chosen to undertake, we are going to have to stay focused and use everything that we have learned thus far. If we don't, the harsh reality of the real world will catch us with our back turned. We will never have the slightest clue what hit us.
I only had two weeks to ‘correct’ my mistake; focusing on the Reading area. This time, the pressure, stress, and anxiety hit me. I only had one week left to apply. Yet again, my anxiety has defeated me. I was hopeless at that time, but I told myself to stand up, and change my strategy.
The day when I had that dream I woke up early in the morning and studied a lot and reach college half an hour ahead. It declined my tension and worry. Secondly, I was so worried about losing my job and I had dream in which my manager kicked me out from the work and told me not to come back due to mine unpunctuality. So next day in morning I woke up early and get ready as soon as I can and went for work. I tried not to make any mistake with my costumers and tried to make them happy.
