The Early Bird Catches the Worm

The Early Bird Catches the Worm

Do you ever arrive to appointments early, or finish projects, deadlines, assignments ahead of time? If not, why not?

When I was in graduate school, I decided to complete all my reading assignments several days prior to their due date. This allowed me to enjoy my week without having the readings hanging over my head and it also meant I did not feel scrambled and pressured the night before. Thus, I was able to enjoy what I was reading and also had time to organize my thoughts. I would usually review highlighted material the night before the class.          


Set a deadline that is earlier than when your project is due.


Many people plan on being exactly on time which can often lead to being late since life has a tendency to happen. You may forget your keys, get caught in unusually bad traffic or their might be an accident on the freeway, etc.  If you plan to be 15 minutes early, that will usually be enough time for you to be on time.
                  ….OR ARRIVE EVEN EARLIER…
If you arrive even earlier, take the extra time to enjoy your surroundings, relax, take a short walk, grab a coffee, appreciate nature, review your notes…

Some of you are probably thinking this is not possible. You are just way too busy. If you are always busy, you may want to consider decluttering your schedule or getting curious about why you need your life to be so busy.  


Wake up earlier and give yourself time to enjoy your morning. But also give yourself enough time for sleep. Sometimes people underestimate how much time they will need in the mornings and find themselves eating breakfast as they are running out the door. If you are always feeling rushed, that is something to notice as it probably prevents you from enjoying day to day moments…


Once you have made a commitment to finish something early, other fun tasks may present themselves and sometimes it may be a well needed break. However, if you find yourself consistently saying yes to distractions, then you may be avoiding/procrastinating.


Make sure you get some time to take-care of yourself to prevent burn-out. You will be more productive if you are feeling emotionally satisfied.

Sometimes people underestimate how much time a task will take to be completed and again are left feeling stressed and pressured. So plan ahead and leave some cushion time.

Do not underestimate the power of regular exercise. It helps increase oxygen to your brain and releases endorphins, which help reduce stress, improve mood, and enhance memory.

I totally agree with you that the early bird catches the worm. When I was still in high school, my grandmother has been always angry with me because I am slow at preparing myself to go to school. I am always late and missing some important lecture on my morning subject. My grandmother helped me realize that being late is not good. She said that if I am still like that when I am in college, I will probably not reach my dreams. Therefore, I practiced being early everyday whenever I am going out to see my friends or going to school.

Omaha Hi Lo is one of the more well known online club poker recreations. It is another stud variety, yet for this situation there are two pots to win.
