Wonderful job! You’ve decided it’s finally time to get your education and start on the path to a great new career. You’ve completed the enrollment process and school starts in just a few weeks. Now you need to plan so you can be a successful student once your courses actually start.
Set-Up Your Study Space
: Decide in advance where you are going to study. Make sure it’s a quiet place where you won’t be distracted. Take time before classes start to get your family accustomed to respecting your study space and help them understand if you are in that space, you are busy studying and cannot be disturbed.
Set Your Schedule
: Get into a routine before classes start so you are accustomed to your new schedule. You may have to set your alarm earlier than normal or you may need to stay up later than usual to accommodate your new hours. Don’t make plans with family or friends during the hours you will be in class. Help them get accustomed to the fact that you will be unavailable for them sometimes as you work on bettering yourself for a bright new career.
Arrange Help if Needed
: Establish things like day care for children before class begins. If possible, start your new routine prior to the first day of class. This way your children are settled into their new routine and you can start school without the stress of the first day away from your children to add to your own stress. If you need to rearrange your work schedule to accommodate classes, try to do so in advance as well so both you and your employer are used to the new routine. Also look at any upcoming appointments and make sure they will not keep you from school and reschedule them if at all possible.
Signing up for classes is just the beginning. Your success in school will depend on your commitment to learning as well as planning ahead. Your time in school will be over before you know it and you’ll be on the right path to starting an exciting new career.
