[Have Determination, Say No to Procrastination]
By Michelle Chiang Man Ying (Hall 10)
Your alarm waked you up at 9 in the morning. Feeling warm and cozy, you did not want to leave your lovely blanket and pillow in such a breezy autumn weather. You know you have three essays, two projects and one presentation due next week. But you thought to yourself – “I still have a lot of time.” Then you went back to sleep on your Friday day off.
Hearing your growling stomach finally gave you the motivation to begin your day, and you realize – it is already 2 p.m. After you fill your stomach with the leftovers from the night before, you turned on your computer, planning to start to work.
However, you got bored after 30 minutes of doing researches and looking at papers. So you logged-in on Facebook, and found out that you have missed the latest episode of Once Upon a Time. You decided to watch it for a bit and then continue to work… Suddenly, you best friend messaged you to tell you the gossips of who and who… and when you look at the clock again, it’s nearly dinner time and you have done nothing productive.
I may have exaggerated a bit, but in the digital age nowadays, distractions are everywhere. Being deadline fighters, having last minute spirit… we all have poor time management. We all know what we ought to do, yet we sometimes choose to take the detour.
Always remember – The bad news is time flies. The good news is you’re the pilot
