Hello all my lovely readers! This article’s topic is staying focused and dealing with distractions. As a high school student, I know I can get distracted easily. When it comes to getting work done and focusing, some of us teenagers have the attention span of a squirrel. But with college coming up around the corner, distractions are the last thing we need.
When you start to get distracted, you need to give yourself a wake-up call. School always comes first. Make it a priority to get your schoolwork done early so that you have one thing less to worry about. Work and a social life come after schoolwork. After all, “there is a time for work, and a time for play.” This quote proves true, especially in high school. If you are striving to excel in your classes and impress those colleges, then you need to make sure you set aside plenty of time for schoolwork.
Staying on task is crucial. If you have extra time—instead of watching TV or lying around the house—get ahead on your homework! Trust me, you will be thankful for it later. You will have a sense of relief knowing that you have completed your homework and don’t have to worry about it. As teenagers, we all love to procrastinate, but getting your work done early saves a lot of stress and late nights.
I am challenging you to get your schoolwork done and make sure it is your first priority. The last thing you need to worry about is falling behind in class or staring at a growing pile of homework. If you get your assignments done on time, it will save you loads of stress. And once you are all up to date with your school assignments then you can work on outside school things, such as community service or spending time with friends. Just be careful to not get distracted and to focus on what comes first.
