 Excuses That Slow You Down While Studying

I Don't Have Enough Time

Welcome to the club. We all have too little time. And if you don't have time for something, the thing is just not important enough to you. Therefore, think about what is really important to you and set clear priorities in your life. Then you always have time.

I Don't Feel Like It

Studying is work. And work has little to do with pleasure. If you make your commitment during your studies dependent on how much you want to, you are guaranteed to fail and never be successful and happy. You don't need to be interested in studying – you need a strong will. Not more. And if you lack it, try to work on your willpower, and if you need like you need help with your assignments while you are improving your willpower, you can hire a paper writing service.

I'm Not In Shape Today

Your form doesn't matter much when studying. Of course, there are phases when you are super productive and complete one task after the other at record speed. But this state of flow is rare and will only happen to you every few weeks. In the meantime, you'll have to make it through with your reduced power and settle for 90, 70, or 50 percent of your capacity. Realize this: 50 percent of sessions are still better than 0 percent sessions.

I'll Do That Later

Postponing things later is one of the most powerful ways to lie to yourself and remain unsatisfied forever. Everything that you put off until "later" or "tomorrow" you subconsciously classify as unimportant and there is a high probability that you will forget it or never do it. So, get in the habit of tackling important tasks immediately - even if it's just a tiny first step to get you going. If you really have to postpone tasks: Schedule them and set a specific completion date.

I Still Have Time

As long as the schedule allows, many students postpone their assignments. The problem with this: This postponement means that important deadlines are concentrated in a short period of time and combine to form a super-stress phase. Just because you have plenty of time left doesn't mean you can avoid work right now—it means you can avoid stress by sticking with it now. Otherwise, your postponed deadlines will catch up with you later. In such cases, you might just simply not have enough time, and you would need to use services like us.masterpapers.com to deal with your tasks.

It's Too Hot/Too Cold

For as long as the weather has existed, students have used it as an excuse. Whether it's too warm, too cold, too windy, or too dreary: productive learning is simply not possible today. And not tomorrow either. So a tip from the weather fairy: stop making your performance dependent on external influences. You are in control of how you work, and nothing can stop you.

I'm Too Busy

Between your part-time job, all the housework, and your family, don't you get to study? Then I have a suggestion for you: reduce your part-time job, stop doing your housework, or care less about your family. Sound hard? It is. But if you want to study more, you have to do less of something else - otherwise, your schedule won't work out. Don't confuse yourself. Determine what's important to you and do it. And remember best writing services are always out there for you to help you out with your academic overload.

It's Not Worth It Anymore

If you also belong to the faction that it's-not-worth-it-for-the-few-minutes-anymore: Yes, it's worth it! And every time. Every minute you put into your studies is time well spent. It's an investment in yourself. And sometimes it can be as long as twenty, ten, even two minutes. The main thing is that you do something and work on your goals.

First, I Have To

Solid preparation is important – no question about it. But it must not be used as an excuse to put off one's own tasks. 99 percent of the time, you have everything you need to get started. You don't have to do anything beforehand. It's all there. You are ready. You just have to start. Now.

Conclusion

Many students fail because of their own excuses and block their way to a beautiful and happy future. Excuses are a completely natural function of the human psyche: They protect you from unpleasant changes. The only problem is that these changes usually only feel bad in the short term - afterward they create a positive lasting effect and ensure that you get a lot closer to your goals.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
