As if we don’t have enough work to be preoccupied with as it is (view my previous post – The Stretch Run), Michigan basketball also just happens to be in the midst of a potential Final Four run. How can students reasonably be expected to attend to their work with such an extraordinary current event taking place before our very eyes. Every time I think about working on my project I immediate wish that my name was Nik Stauskas, not Benji Shanus. I am short, he is tall. I am an obnoxious American, he is a Canadian Saint. I am procrastinating, he is wowing NBA scouts. Good.
Does anyone have any good tactics of motivating themselves to be productive? I try to break things down into smaller chunks and make a checklist of what I need to do. Each day, I make it a priority to accomplish a certain number of tasks. Today just happens to be one of those days where nothing is clicking. I went to the library with the intention of doing work with a combination of Justin Bieber and the Jonas Brothers in the background. What has actually transpired has been quite the contrary. Bieber and the Brothers have been rocking my world, as I’ve occasionally managed to jot down a few notes. Don’t let this be you. Get rid of Cable and upgrade to Direct TV.
