LRC Tip of the Week: Harness the Power of Routine

Article *
Consider this:

•Instead of devoting a lot of hours one day, and none the other and then a few on an another day and so on, allocate a specific time period each day of the week for that task.
•Hold firm.
•Don’t set a goal other than time allocation,
simply set the habit of routine.
•Apply this technique to your homework or your projects, you will be on your way to getting things done

For more helpful tips and strategies for success in college, make an appointment with a tutor in the LRC. Tutors are available MondayThursday 10:50 am to 6:00 pm, and other times by appointment.
