Studies First.Never sacrifice your academics.In times of uncertainty, ask questions.The one next to you may know the answers.Recognize authority.There is always someone above you.Set your priorities.Be able to identify the most important tasks that you must do.Be in a team. Act like a team.You will never be left alone to do things so don’t leave others too.Take time to laugh and play.The brain and body requires a break from serious work.Rest.When you’re sitting and not moving, it doesn’t mean that you’re not doing anything. You’rejust thinking things out.Take initiative in doing work.Don’t let someone else do the things that you can do yourself.Know when you’re being too much.People may be offended by your actions and may cause misunderstandings in the group.Never be dull for a moment.Always look for things that you can do. Never allow yourself to be unproductive.
