Lessons learnt

by

I’m thrilled. And kind of excited. And kind of impressed! The semester I’m currently doing at my university and master program is known for being absolutely exhausting. It’s a combination of..

– finishing all stray courses
– running 3 major projects (one of which has a company as stakeholder and client)
– applying for a master thesis
– applying for jobs
– every side project we are running
– side jobs

Basically many of my classmates are exhausted. I on the other hand, have had the most chill semester since the second year. But my schedule is definitely not chill. So how? The answer is a shift in priorities. This year I’ve had a focus on finding new interests, and it has worked so well! I have much more energy to do a good job in school. Instead of spending 14 hours a day studying and working, I’ve spent 6 – 9 hours with at least one day off per week. I’m so much more effective. I’m much calmer. I deliver higher quality.

I’d like to say that this is truly personal development. Realizing a need and then trying out ways to find something sustainable. It’s quite a good lesson learnt, perhaps one of the best ones in 2016 for me!
