Is Handwriting Still Alive?

What Triggered Me to Switch back to Paper:

The trigger for my change was thinking about the lifestyle my grandfather used to have. He was always on the go, but never seemed overwhelmed. I believe he simply wasn’t. Not because he didn’t have a million things to do, but because when those things were put down in his to-do list there were some decisions already made about them. He had an idea of what his decision was going to be even before he started the task pending. I believe that this was because hand writing a schedule and task implied effort, thought, and not just a click or copy and paste. According to this made him more motivated to complete the tasks at hand for that day. He realized that it was silly to think you can control all events in your day.

Paper simply brings something different to the equation that a screen can’t. The focus needed to handwrite is something that is not necessary while typing (most people do it mechanically). This can be useful when writing a lot, but for organization it can be counterproductive. You don’t really want to create your agenda without “thinking” about it.

It is also too easy to get really into the software details and logistics of it and forget about what really matters, which is your decisions and actions. It is silly to expect perfection from a system that was made by someone else to work for you. Motivation Strategy For some, saving a little bit more in interest is not as important as seeing results. If you need constant feedback to help you in your goal of reducing your debt, the motivation strategy is the way to go. For this strategy, you arrange your debt by the Lowest Number of Payments Remaining column. Once you have done that, then you begin by applying the entire amount of the Extra Debt Payments Available to the card at the top of the list. That reduces the time that it takes for that card to be paid off. Once it is, then the next card on the list receives the entire amount of the Extra Debt Payments Available. According to this is the fastest way to reduce the number of debt accounts. Falling Behind in Classes

Situation: You are an junior or senior in college and the work is piling up too fast.

1) Drop something even if it takes you another semester to graduate. You are not in a race. At the beginning of my senior year in engineering my adviser told me there were three really tough classes that I needed to take and that I shouldn’t take more than one of these three at one time. I took all three at the same time, plus other classes totaling 18 units, plus I was grading papers for another class and working 5 hours a week at my co-op housing. I was burned out for months afterwards and it hurt my grade point average. According to studydaddy become a tutor service there was another guy grading papers with me that quarter. He was taking only two classes – heeding his advisers advice, no doubt. He ended up in medical school and was later accepted in the space shuttle astronaut training program.

2) You are always talking to your professors, your adviser, and your study group partners, right? Take their advice.
