In general I'd like to think that I am a pretty motivated person. I'm not much of a procrastinator and have forced myself to become a pro at tackling a to-do list (especially this school year). With a busy week ahead and what seems like an endless amount of projects to complete sometimes being overwhelmed makes it feel like there is no way to get everything done. But, I've come to realize that oftentimes the hardest part about finishing something is getting started! I stumbled across this post on Pinterest recently and felt that it was very applicable for school work and life in general.
With school work especially I try to avoid the difficulty of starting an assignment by jumping straight into the middle of it by answering the questions or addressing the issues that I already know. I'm not sure if y'all have ever had the moment when trying to start writing a paper and not knowing how to make your introduction sound just right but I feel like that always happens to me. The same thing happened last night when I could not figure out how on earth to start a lesson plan I was working on. Instead of becoming discouraged I decided to jump into the part that I was confident about which helped me to better determine how I wanted to start it. Sometimes starting somewhere doesn't have to mean tackling something from the beginning but instead going ahead from where you feel comfortable!
