LRC Tip of the Week: ACHIEVE STAGE ONE-Get Something Done!!!

Article *
The Chinese adage of the longest journey starting with a single step has a couple of meanings: First, you launch the project! Second, by starting, you may realize that there are some things you have not planned for in your process. Details of an assignment are not always evident until you begin the assignment.

Another adage is that “perfection is the enemy of good”, especially when it prevents you from starting! Given that you build in review, roughly draft your idea and get going! You will have time to edit and develop later.

What is a first step you can identify for a current assignment to get yourself started?

For more ideas about strategies for success, make an appointment with a tutor in Learning Resource Center (LRC).
