Balancing a great personality growth journey and studies

  1. Make a list based on your ranking of priorities
    :slightly_smiling_face: Remember that studies is important, but trust me, employers don’t look for boring resumes, they look for all rounders who’d have leadership, business or any skills you can bring to the table!
    I was chosen to be the first batch chosen to be in the national leadership programme out of the whole Malaysia (only 40 of us were chosen) and they took my results into account. Trust me, I’m not a “high achiever” in terms of studies but from what I heard, I was chosen because of my list of achievements despite being 17, further, the minimum age allowed was supposedly 18 years old.

  2. Make sure you PRIORITISE the issues at the top your list.
    :slightly_smiling_face: Because words without actions are empty, right?:grin: When you prioritise some things, incorporate them into your weekly or daily routine. And how do you do that? Go to the next point

  3. Write down a list of things to do to incorporate your priorities.
    :slightly_smiling_face: Best if it’s possible to get a calendar or a journal in order for you to be able to visually be reminded of what you have to do to keep those priorities in check. These things don’t have to be big changes but you can set milestones and reward yourself with cookies​:wink: (Like how those of you who’ve read up till here deserves a cookie)

Priorities are crucial to maintaining a work life balance especially when you need to make a systematic system to help you plan a successful schedule

I love the #3 tips: to write down a list of things to do to incorporate your priorities. I have undergone 30-days free Neurolinguistic Programme (NLP) Training with NeuroGym’s John Assaraf, and on the first video lesson, he said that if we don’t have priorities, we won’t move unto the right direction.

I also think that knowing what are important to us are as important as knowing what we want and go after it; however, there is one thing that some of us might miss on: Passion. It is something that drives us in our daily activities and make our life more meaningful.

Passion is different than interests. While we might have many interests, we can only have one passion that drives our whole interests. It’s okay if we neglect one or two of our interests, but if we try to neglect our passion, then surely we won’t make anything out of life, including our growth journey and studies.

I agree with what you said about passion and interests, it’s so true. Passion helps you go through the hardships of what you love even if everything crumbles, the fire will not stop burning, this is different from interests which might or might not being you far in life!
