Pause & Reflect

Before reading this section, consider the following questions:

  • What goals have you set for yourself this term? Do you have a plan in place to achieve your goals?
  • How effective is your current approach to scheduling?
    • For example, are you constantly feeling overwhelmed or like you can't finish all the tasks on your list?
  • Have your needs or priorities changed recently? Is your schedule flexible enough to allow for these changes?
  • How productive do you feel when you sit down to finish school work or study?
  • How do you prioritize your tasks on a given day? Is it easy for you, or do your struggle to create a realistic plan?
