5 Things That Can Cause Problems for Nontraditional College Students
If nontraditional college students are going to be successful they must get their home time management under control. While there are many things that can cause problems for them, here I'm going to address 5 that are the easiest to get under control.
This is when you're still undecided about what's for dinner when it is near... or worse, already... dinner time. You may be walking through the grocery store aimlessly, peering into others' baskets, even stopping someone and asking them what sounds good.
Laundry Piling Up
This is when instead of tackling laundry for half an hour per day you let it pile up until you get around to it on Saturday (or whatever day). This not only causes you to be tethered to the house but can really mess up your concentration.
A Cluttered Home
For many people… myself included… clutter is very distracting. I found it much more difficult to get into the zone when the room I was studying in was messy... even if I was studying outside on the screened-in porch.
Not Using Chunks of Time Wisely
One way you could take care of the clutter is to use chunks of time wisely. If you were to spend 15 minutes each day cleaning your study room, it would get cleaned... I don't care how messy it is.
Not Planning Effectively
Let's face it... almost all problems with home time management can be boiled down to lack of planning. Conversely, if you plan correctly you have time to study, complete projects, write research papers, and… in general… do everything it takes to succeed in college.
