You are probably thinking that working full-time and studying full-time is impossible, right?
Juggling classes, homework, family and a full-time job is not a ride in the park, but it’s definitely
worth it. Believe it or not, many people have had a full-time job and managed to attend full-time
classes. These guys are not crazy. On the contrary, they have a social life and did not burn out in
the end. Here’s how they did it.
1. Focus on the end game
This is not much of a method but rather a reminder. When you are studying and working
full-time, things are likely to get crazy. You might feel overwhelmed at times, so you need to find
your motivation. Sometimes you will feel like quitting work or school. During these moments,
remind yourself why you tried this in the first place.
2. Work on your reading speed
One of the biggest challenges when it comes to working and studying full time is keeping up with
all the reading. One ways of managing the pressure is to improve your reading speed. Most
people fail to realize that they read slowly, so they don’t have the opportunity to improve.
3. Break up your studying carefully
When you have a heavy study load, things will not be easy for you. You ought to carefully plan on
how you will manage the entire load. Instead of looking at the work as one huge chunk, why not
divide it into smaller manageable bits?
4. Sacrifice something
Working and studying full-time requires sacrifice. Consider making at least one sacrifice daily so
that you can get enough time to concentrate on your school work. For instance, you can decide
to give up one hour of television every day to do some personal studying. However, do not
sacrifice important things like family time, your workout or your sleep.
