Tuesday's Tackling Tasks: A New Series!

Tuesday's Tackling Tasks
What I’ve Created For You This Week — Study Break Series: Resist the Urge to Cram
Hi friends,
Before we dive in, I am launching a new collection of articles on my website called the “Study Break Series.” Over the next few weeks, I will be writing about my best study tips based on my 20 years (!) of being a student. This week’s article is about eschewing the ever-present temptation to cram for exams. The following weeks will include how to study for tests, why studying is a technical skill, how to avoid panicking after a hard test, and how to review exams. If any of those topics are of interest to you, look for the articles within the next few weeks!
If you know any students, I urge you to forward this email to them, so they can have this information before midterms.
Now, back to the scheduled program. If you think about yourself over the past five years, or even just this one year, do you feel like you have changed? More specifically, are there things you used to enjoy that you now hate?
My answer is an emphatic yes. So, this leads me to my next question: should I trust myself? The answer is no. Let me explain.
Dr. Benjamin Hardy, a psychologist, once said: “You can get yourself to want anything, so you might as well be intentional in what you get yourself to enjoy.”
Theoretically, I will start liking certain things if I push past the initial “hard stage,” and don’t trust how much I hate it at first. If it is really worth doing, then it is worth pushing through. I put off blogging for a while because I was scared to put myself out there, and now it really is the best part of my week.
So instead of saying I’m not one of those amazing people who work out early in the morning, maybe I should just get past the difficult stage and try it out. I’ll let you know in a couple weeks if I end up liking it. 😉
Have a great week!
