New Semester or Quarter - Tips to Start it Off Right

It's a new semester or quarter for most college students. Here are some tips and tricks to get started on the right foot and make the most of the fresh opportunity. You'll have more time for fun, decrease your stress around exam time, and improve your grades.

In this video, I go over some ways to make sure this new semester or quarter is better than the last. First, you should start with reflecting on what did and did not work for you last quarter or semester.

I know a lot of you have created New Year's Resolutions, and I have spoken about my thoughts on resolutions in the past. In short, most resolutions fail due to affective forecasting, where we use the current moment to predict how we will feel in the future. This often results in procrastination.

Therefore, it's crucial to depend on new habits and discipline over willpower to make the changes that you want. You can find more in this book below:

Now onto the nitty gritty of starting a new semester off on the right foot:
1. Scheduling: plan your classes and enter all the details you can into your calendar.
2. Prepare your Materials: know which textbooks you need and which are optional. It's important to buy them in a timely manner to make sure you don't fall behind. I recommend renting or buying from Amazon textbooks: http://geni.us/0wWq3i2
3. Talk to Others: Those who have recently taken the course are the best resource to find out how to succeed in each course.
4. Start Studying Immediately: It's easy to wait until week 2 or 3 to start, but it's imperative you start studying on day 1. This builds momentum and good habits.
5. Work towards your Fitness and Personal Goals Early: Similarly, start hitting the gym or working on your other goals immediately. Setting up a routine ensures you will stick with them even when midterms roll around.
