    Hey everyone,

    I am currently in the process of preparing for competitive exams in management studies. Staying at home at the moment and want some tips on maintaining discipline in terms of schedule – for example, sleeping on time, exercise routine etc. I tend to get lazy at times and routine tends to go haywire. How do i stay on track and ensure minimal wastage of time?

    @brievoung – any idea on what to do to stay at peak performance? I am also working part-time as an online tutor.


    Hi Nina,

    I’ve noticed that my life works best if I boil it down to one or two things.

    Studies: I would read a chapter, write a page, and review my notes every day. (Read, write, review something every day) I would also study in a group.
    Sleeping: Bed by 11, wake up at 7
    Exercise: After studying an hour (enough to feel virtuous) I would use exercise to take a break and integrate the mental with physical movement. Then you can finish up if any studying is left when you are in that calm post-exercise state. Review notes then?
    Chores/Errands: Do on the weekends or when you don’t have class the next day.

    Basically my advice is study for an hour first thing in the morning/when you’re able every day. Then Exercise. Then do whatever else you have to do.




    You can also use the Streaks App, or a Habit App. Something about marking everything “done” is compelling!

    Okay Inky, thanks. At the moment, i need to devote about 3-4 hours a day to the online tutoring, 6 hours of exam study prep a day and the rest i can allocate for other activities. I tend to get lazy often. Thats the part i struggle with.

    Remove temptations
    Eat regularly and healthily
    Don’t wait for it to “feel right
    Schedule breaks, treats, and rewards for yourself
    Forgive yourself and move forward
