This week, try to begin the projects you have remaining in the semester. First ask, "what, exactly, do I have left to do?"
- Reading? Spend an hour looking over your books and articles and figure out how to create a study guide for your final. Strategize the time slots for reading specific sections. Find background material on the assigned topic if necessary.
- Writing? Choose a topic or a thesis, begin your research, or organize a structure for your paper. Go back to the syllabus or written assignment and analyze what you are being asked to do. Think about your plan, and take notes.
- Sermon? Start by reading your text and taking notes on what you notice about it. Move to commentaries or other resources.
- Stressed out? Begin to walk or to listen to music or to buy some groceries. Don't worry about finishing for now - just start!
