Today, I learned an interesting phrase called “eating the frog” and “chasing the squirrels” – it means that you have a big task you should be getting done, but you work on all the little things instead to avoid that job. I always like discovering more fun ways to describe skipping your work! Thanks boss 🙂
THIS IS MY 60TH STRAIGHT POST!
SOL day 9
It can be hard to keep working when the term starts to come an end, but it is important to know how to motivate yourself. I didn’t do any work ALL last week, except for Monday, because I outlined a large portion of my final assignment. I am not usually one for procrastinating, but it is hard not to burn out when you are part-time teaching and have night classes. We have had simple assignments most of the term, so it didn’t seem like we needed to work on anything big until the end. Even with this last assignment, it is only one thing to finish which makes it easier to put off. However, I took my break from working on this and now, it is time to get to it! I took a big dent out of the assignment today, and now I must keep working n it this weekend until it is finished. Procrastination is very addicting when an assignment isn’t due for a while because you aren’t under the bus yet. You must try to take little steps with final assignments though – they usually take much longer than you think and you don’t want to be stuck stressing out. There is only one more big assignment and a week left, keep on plowing through until spring break!
