A lot of students act as if they are more likely to be children than the successful business people. This is normal, however, it is recommended to start preparing yourself for a future job. Therefore, here is a list of 5 student’s habits that should be removed in order to become successful in your career.
1. Putting the work to the last minute
Use all the time you have to work. Never put everything aside with the words “I will do it later”. Better finish writing the essays earlier in order to spend your free time with a clear mind and not to think about studying during this spare time. In business nobody likes lazy and disorganized people. Therefore, make sure that you start making your work as soon as possible. Furthermore, spend some time on reading your work again and correcting the possible mistakes you made. Moreover, you may check the work twice to be sure that your work is qualitative. Last-minute people can set the deadlines for themselves instead of begging friends with the words: write my essay please. If the deadline is successfully met, they, for example, can eat some chocolate, which is a reward used to encourage themselves. However, if they are not able to meet the deadline, they have to punish themselves to induce behavior. This approach is called “The Carrot & Stick Approach”.
2. Sitting in the social networks
You may think that chatting with your friends of Facebook is fun and makes your life better, however, it is not true. Try to enjoy your life with your phone off and you will see that it does not matter if you are online or offline. Furthermore, social networks usually distract us from doing things right and in time. Thus, put your gadgets aside while working on projects and you will be amazed by the quantity of a qualitative work made.
3. Working in your bedroom
Try to get used to work in the places where you are not going to procrastinate. Working in the bedroom is not a good idea because you may find a lot of things to do such as to cook some food, to watch a movie, to play with your dog or to sleep. Moreover, you can feel lonely when you do not see other people. Therefore, it is recommended to work in a local library or in a quite café.
4. Ignoring the challenges and problems
Sometimes you may feel that you are not able to start, continue or finish something. In these times try to remember that absolutely everyone has struggles from time to time. Therefore, identify problems, focus on them and lastly deal with them. Do not put the hard things aside because they will not disappear, they may become bigger and worst. If you want to have a successful career, you have to understand that managing your life by yourself and overcoming all the barriers are compulsory.
5. Getting angry because of the failures
Everybody makes mistakes but not everybody can accept it. Messing up once does not mean that you will continue working in this way. If you are an emotional person, take a break after a mistake made to relax and calm down. Stressing out will not give you any result. Therefore, perceive the mistakes to be the life lessons, which can make you stronger and more successful in future.
