What kind of problems are we talking about?
Let me give you one example. Say you are a new student starting your first day at your university. As a fresher you might have so many things to do, like choosing the courses from which you can gain knowledge and also get good grades easily, joining some fancy clubs such as Astronomy club, Science Club, Arts Club, Fitness clubs and many more. Also, being in your new dream place, you might want to make more friends, do more networking and attend some interesting events.
Now the real question is, Can you allot proper time to do all the above things? You got only two years to complete your course work, get good grades and get a job. For that you need dedicated time to spend on assignments and projects. But networking is also equally important to get a job. So what is the fine line where you achieve best of both worlds, in addition to good rest?
Your fellow seniors at university might advise you to schedule properly, add all these tasks in calendar and follow them strictly. But do you know why this won’t work for most of the people? Because this calendar does not consider the human nature, current mood, health level, sleep level, lack of resources or delay in getting those resources and many more. So these calendars does not account for uncertainties that is associated with such tasks.
How do you get most out of your university considering your health, resources and uncertainty?
