Starting the year off right

By Middlesex University Modified on January 19, 2018

You’re half-way through the school year but have 11 months to make 2018 a year to remember


If you’re reading this article there’s a 90% chance you were born after 1999. This makes you part of Generation Z. Now, we’re not here to theorize about sociology or predict your future, but we know that being close to finishing high school in a society that expects so much from your generation can be tough. Maybe you’ve been lazy all year, or maybe you’ve given it your best. Regardless of how you’ve done in the past, there won’t ever be a better time than now to start 2018 off right.

Plan ahead. This may sound complicated but all it takes is a goal, a deadline and a to-do list. What do you want to achieve? Write it down. How can you get from where you are to where you want to be? This may take a series of actions, so write it down in chronological order and scratch it off of your list as you go. When is it due? Make sure to finish one or two days before the deadline to give you ample time in case things get harder in the way.

Make small improvements constantly. You can start off by deciding to make your bed every morning. If starting the gym is too hard, you can decide to do 50 sit-ups every day for the following eleven months. If you need a certain score to get into that university, plan your way with small actions that will take you there.
