Cures for Common Pitfalls of Nontraditional Students
Perhaps you've struggled with one or more of these common pitfalls that can sink a nontraditional student. The major ones I see are:
***Trying to do everything yourself
***Trying to do everything you've always done
***Trying to do things the old way
Trying to Do Everything Yourself
The cure to this is... not surprisingly... to learn to let go and let others do for you and for themselves. Kids use the bathroom sink to wash their hands and rinse their toothbrush, they use the potty, well, for a couple of things, and they use the bathtub for bathing. There's no reason why they can't or shouldn't help clean that room.
Trying to Do Everything You've always Done
The cure here is to realize that you'll have to give up some things in your life to make room for your new commitments. Figure out which activities you can let go of completely, which ones you can modify and keep, and which ones you are adamant about keeping as is.
Trying to Do Things the Old Way
The cure here is to be open to new ways of doing things. Realize that, yes, it may take time to create those menus you've been promising for years that you'd create so you don't continue to struggle week after week. But, once they are completed they'll save time and aggravation for years to come.
That saved time can be reinvested into studying or spending time with your family. Find new and time-saving ways of doing housework. Also, try new ways and find what works for you to enable you to concentrate while you study.
