That’s what I’ve been telling myself these past few weeks. “One step at a time.”
The next three weeks, there are a lot of coursework deadlines coming up. And typically enough, most of them are all squished in within the same week. There’s a lot of stress going round the students.
Last year, I got lost within all the stress and got so worried that I’d never get everything done. But this year, I’ve decided to try my best to stay calm because I probably won’t get very far if I stressed out all the time. Of course, sometimes it’s good to think about the future and get yourself a plan of action of how you’ll get everything done. But it’s not so good thinking about it so much that you only get more and more stressed. Always thinking of “How will I ever get this done?” or “There’s too much to do!” won’t get the job done. Sometimes it’s best to just look at the here and now.
Sometimes the best thing to do is just start. Somewhere, anywhere. Eventually, you’ll get one thing done and can move on to the next task at hand. Before you know it, you’ll have nearly finished!
Just take it one step at a time. Things will get done.
