How to Thrive as a Nontraditional College Student
The dictionary defines the word "Thrive" as:
1.) To prosper; be fortunate or successful, or
2.) To grow or develop vigorously; flourish
And a synonym is to Succeed.
For nontraditional college students they may seem to be an unattainable goal.
It is possible to thrive as a nontraditional college student.
Here's how to thrive as a nontraditional college student:
Plan your study time in advance
Your time must be planned in advance.
Planning adequate time to study enabled me to thrive as a nontraditional college student.
Protect that study time
Time that you set aside to study is bound to be tested by other things in your life.
My being able to thrive as a nontraditional college student was a direct result of me protecting my study time.
Take care of your other responsibilities
When you do this you've already taken care of feeding your family, you've spent time with your spouse and kids, the house doesn't look like a dump, and the kids have clean clothes.
The only way I could thrive as a nontraditional college student was to know that everyone and everything was taken care of and I could turn my mental energy towards studying.
Don't feel guilty
There is nothing like guilt to ruin any and all efforts to study.
You feel like a failure at home and that feeling will follow you into your role as a student. It will affect your ability to study.
You simply have to learn to do the things you have to do faster so that you still get them done. You can then direct the saved time to studying without feeling all the guilt.
I could not have thrived as a nontraditional college student if I'd been beat down by guilt all the time.
