Some people prefer to live in the present, others prefer to be prepared for the future and plan ahead. Which do you prefer? Explain why.
I prefer to plan ahead and always be ready for tomorrow. First, I need to plan ahead to feel certain about myself. Sometimes life hits you hard. We must anticipate the troubles coming in our way in order to deal with them when problems present. For example, we must choose a major that has the most demand on the job market. This way we won’t waste our time on things that have little real life application. Second, planning ahead means I can always stay productive. I plan to not only finish my education with an outstanding grade, but also work a part-time job while I’m still a student so after I graduate, I’ll be able to have a resume that can impress my future employers.
What kind of strategy do you use to handle an overwhelming amount of work.
I think making a plan ahead of time and sticking to it is the way to go. For example, I did a twenty-page paper for my history class last semester. I was pretty concerned about not being able to handle it so I sat down and made a plan before starting the project. The plan was to start the whole thing by going to the library so that I have all the right books and material for my research, and then try to finish the first draft within two week. After that I’d show it to my professor for feedbacks and suggestions on how to improve it. I followed this plan and everything worked out pretty well at the end.
