        How to Combine Leisure, Studies and Work

Do you remember the last time you visited a circus? If you do, you should for sure

remember deft juggler holding five, seven, or even eleven balls in the air without

letting them down. Do you believe it's so easy as it seems? Not in the least! The

earnest of his success is well-tried succession of movements, control over each of

the balls, and total concentration on the activity he performs. And now imagine that

the juggler on the arena is you, the balls he juggles are different spheres of your life.

Do you manage to combine all of them as successfully as he manages to juggle

colorful balls?

Though it may seem strange, but one of the ways to cope with different activities is

to learn to "juggle" them. And the more you master this skill the better results you

have. It's not that you should change them all the time or close the account with

your right hand and write an essay research paper or thesis with the left. It's all

about the ability to maintain them so that not a single one runs away. It becomes

possible when you can organize your schedule in the best possible way, pay proper

attention to each activity, and concentrate upon the one you do at the moment. As

a lot of other young people, you are to cope with three main activities: studies in

college, work, and leisure. Let's look how this method works!

    The first idea is an efficient schedule, or in other words

      time management.

Like a juggler has chosen the best succession of movements to keep the balls up and

control them, you should organize your activities the way you find it the most

comfortable. For instance, you can't influence your schedule in the university, but

you are free to choose working hours. Then try to put one after another, long breaks

are often spent on roaming around. If you can't avoid that, fill such breaks with

something useful, like sports or self-development.

    The second piece of advice concerns attention distribution.

There is one important thing that needs to be stressed: although these activities are

of different value in your eyes, make sure to pay SOME attention to each of them.

Otherwise, the ball you've lost from your field of view will inevitably fall down.

Another question is to decide, how much time and efforts to devote to each sphere.

To do this, you are to establish priorities. Do you find studies to be of primarily

importance? Then two working hours a day are enough to get some first experience.

Or maybe this job is extremely challenging and exactly what you were dreaming

about? You may devote more time to it if all the necessary papers for your classes

are ready and you feel prepared for the final test. Anyway after so many intensive

activities, don't forget to relax in a good company or to return to your hobbies.

    Finally, form a habit to concentrate as much as possible on

       the task you perform and not to divert your attention on

       other things.

Very often when overloaded with affairs, we can't stop worrying about it; therefore,

whatever we do, we are reproducing the same thought: "There are too many things

to do. I can't cope with all of them." Thus, we are worrying instead of acting and in

the long run we really fail to succeed. On the other hand, if concentrated on the

task, we manage to do it better and quicker, so you we have more time for the next


TIP: Never despond if something goes wrong; try to analyze the problem, correct a

mistake, or begin all over again. Be flexible and open to changes!
