Our Lady Peace on the cover of Faze Magazine!
Well, it’s been a little while but I’m back in school again: I’m taking some university courses (Ryerson) to help me put together the best magazine possible.
I find my biggest problem now is making time for everything. I want to hang out, play sports, work out, party, get a great magazine to you and still do well in school. Although some people say you can’t do it all, I think you can. It comes down to how we manage our time and what we set as our priorities.
What we are good at is proportionate to how much time we put into it. We’re probably all party experts by now but might not be as fit as we would like or getting the marks we want because we don’t spend enough time at them.
It’s easy to find excuses why we’re not where we want to be. No more! This is a new year and we have to take control and responsibility for ourselves. First of all, we better know what we want, which means setting goals. Be specific and realistic. “I want to get better marks,” is not good enough. Try “I want to increase my mark in Chemistry by 6%.”
Next, set up a schedule you can live with and stick to it. Again, be specific. And remember if what you set for yourself is not working, be flexible, throw out what doesn’t work and keep adjusting your plan until you’re seeing results.
The point is we can’t just let things happen. We have to make them happen.
Have a great year and…
