NOW, NOT LATER!

TIPS FOR PROCRASTINATORS

Picture this: It’s Friday and you have an essay due on Monday. It’s only Friday evening now but you’re exhausted so you don’t do it. Saturday morning rolls around and you’ve woken up late. You’re just not feeling productive so you watch some television. Suddenly, it’s Sunday night and you’re burning the midnight oil, rushing through the work only to get a passing grade. Does this sound familiar?

If you identified with the above situation, you might be a frequent procrastinator! Chronic procrastination can really lead you down a path of frustration and impact your overall health in the long run. Here are some tips to tackle procrastination!

To-Do List

Make a To-Do list. It sounds simple but it is the first step to identifying what needs to be done. You can take it a step further and assign a priority rating to each task. You can mark your essay with three exclamation marks to show maximum priority while folding the laundry might be of a lower priority. They are both things you need to complete, but labelling them helps you filter out what needs your attention first.

Optimum Hours

Some of us might work better at night, while others prefer to sleep early and start being productive at the crack of dawn. Observe yourself and identify your optimum working hours. Try to do the most difficult tasks when you are the most efficient.

Pomodoro Technique

Choose one task that needs to be done. Set the timer for 25 minutes. Stop working on the 25 minute mark and give yourself one tick on a piece of paper. Take a short break of no more than 5 minutes. Restart the timer again. When you reach 4 ticks, take a longer break of maybe 20 or 30 minutes. After this break, erase all the previous ticks you had and start again. This technique trains you to work in short intervals. It becomes easier to tackle a huge task if you devote just a bit of time to it consistently and with discipline.

Buddy System

In this system, people are paired and must then be responsible for each other’s wellbeing. You can use this technique when studying or doing assignments. Find a friend who might have trouble with procrastination too and keep each other on track!

 

SPACE EXPLORATION
WRITTEN BY AARON RICHE CABANA, IGCSE STUDENT

Billions of money is being spent on exploring space. Spaceships that are sent to space are already too expensive and are there to fulfill our curiosity about space and finding new planets and resources. But is it actually worth it?

Instead of wasting money on space exploration, money can be spent in a way that helps us with our daily life. Global warming is a very serious problem we are facing right now and I think that money should be spent on more important things such as reducing the risk of global warming.

Exploring space can be very dangerous as we do not know what is out there. The environment of space is very dangerous without the proper protection worn, as space lacks oxygen and pressure.

Exploring space can be good for us as well as we can find new resources for our planet and find interesting stuff in space. We’ll never know if there are other life forms out there if we don’t explore. We can also learn so much stuff from exploring space. But don’t go too far as space exposure can be very dangerous and lethal.

现在就行动!

给拖延症患者的几点提示

想象一下以下画面:今天是星期五,下周一你需要交一篇论文。现在才是星期五晚上,而你又太累了,所以你没有去做。星期六早上你已经起晚了。然而你感觉没有精力,就跑去看一下电视。突然,星期天晚上到来了,你只好挑灯夜战,为求分数合格而匆匆忙忙去完成功课。这听起来是不是很熟悉呢?

假如你有以上情况,你可能是一个拖延症哟!长期拖延真的会带给你挫败感,并影响你的健康。以下是对付拖延症的几点小技巧。

待办事项清单

列出待办事项清单。听起来很简单,但这是分出需要完成任务的第一步。你还可以更进一步,为每个任务标明优先等级。譬如,给论文添上三个感叹号,以表明按最高优先级处理。而折叠衣服可能是较低级别。两者都是你需要完成的事情,但加上标签可以提醒你先去处理较为重要的事情。

最佳工作时间

有些人可能晚上工作更好,但有些人喜欢早睡,黎明之际开始工作。留意观察你自己,了解你的最佳工作时间。在你最精力充沛的时候完成最难的任务吧。

番茄时间管理法

确定你想要做什么。设定一个25分钟的定时器。工作直到25分钟并在纸上打勾一次。在少于5分钟的短暂休息后重开定时器。当你打勾4次后,你可以进行20-30分钟的休息。在这长休息后,你要擦掉所有勾号并重新开始。这个方法能训练你在短时间工作,并让你持续短时间、专注地投入工作,大问题也就迎刃而解。

伙伴系统

在这个系统中,伙伴们是成组配对的。大家必须对对方负责。在学习或完成任务的过程中我们可以使用这门技巧。赶紧找一个拖延症伙伴,监督彼此,让大家步入正轨吧!

SEKARANG, BUKAN NANTI!

TIPS UNTUK PENUNDA

Bayangkan ini: Hari ini, hari Jumaat dan anda mempunyai karangan yang perlu dihantar pada hari Isnin. Ianya Jumaat petang tetapi anda sudah keletihan sehingga anda tidak menyiapkannya. Pada pagi Sabtu anda hanya bergelora dan sudah bangun lewat. Anda tidak merasa produktif lalu anda menonton televisyen. Tiba-tiba, ia sudah malam Ahad dan anda bekerja hingga lewat malam bergegas ingin menyelesaikan karangan itu hanya untuk mendapat kelulusan. Biasa dengar situasi ini?

Sekiranya anda mengenal pasti keadaan di atas, anda mungkin sering menjadi penunda! Penundaan kronik benar-benar dapat membuatkan anda kecewa dan memberi kesan kepada kesihatan keseluruhan anda dalam jangka panjang. Berikut adalah beberapa petua untuk mengatasi penundaan.

Senarai yang hendak dibuat

Buat senarai Perkara Yang Perlu Dilakukan. Kedengarannya sederhana tetapi ini adalah langkah pertama untuk mengenal pasti apa yang perlu dilakukan. Anda boleh melangkah lebih jauh dan memberikan penilaian keutamaan untuk setiap tugas. Anda boleh menandakan karangan anda dengan tiga tanda seru untuk menunjukkan keutamaan maksimum manakala melipat pakaian mungkin menjadi keutamaan yang lebih rendah. Kedua-duanya adalah perkara yang perlu anda selesaikan, tetapi melabelkannya membantu anda menyaring perkara yang memerlukan perhatian anda terlebih dahulu.

Waktu Optimum

Sebilangan daripada kita mungkin bekerja lebih baik pada waktu malam, sementara yang lain lebih suka tidur awal dan mula produktif pada waktu pagi. Perhatikan diri anda dan kenal pasti waktu bekerja anda yang optimum. Cuba lakukan tugas yang paling sukar ketika masa anda paling cekap.

Teknik Pomodoro

Pilih satu tugas yang perlu dilakukan. Tetapkan pemasa selama 25 minit. Berhenti bekerja apabila tanda masa cukup 25 minit dan berikan diri anda satu tanda pada sehelai kertas. Rehat sebentar tidak lebih dari 5 minit. Mulakan semula pemasa sekali lagi. Apabila anda mencapai 4 tanda, rehat lebih lama mungkin dalam 20 atau 30 minit. Selepas rehat ini, hapuskan semua tanda sebelumnya yang anda ada dan mulakan semula. Teknik ini melatih anda untuk bekerja dalam jangka masa yang pendek. Ianya akan menjadi lebih mudah untuk menangani tugas besar jika anda meluangkan sedikit masa untuk melakukannya secara konsisten dan disiplin.

Sistem Buddy

Dalam sistem ini, orang-orang akan berpasangan dan kemudian harus bertanggungjawab untuk kesejahteraan antara satu sama lain. Anda boleh menggunakan teknik ini semasa belajar atau membuat tugasan. Cari rakan yang mungkin mempunyai masalah dengan penundaan juga dan haris saling menjaga jejak antara satu sama lain!
