Tuesday’s Tidbit: Office Hours – The Land of Opportunity Awaits

Too many students are afraid to attend office hours because it seems like they are being sent to the Principal’s Office without actually being sent to the Principal’s Office. 

Of course there are other reasons: you don’t have the time, you don’t like the Prof., their office is far, they’re never in there when they say they will be.
…doesn’t matter!

Go to office hours. They are truly the land of opportunity. Here are just a few ways to capitalize on your Professor’s office hours:

– You get to know to know more about the class material. 

– You can learn more about their field of expertise. 

– You can ask questions that you were afraid to ask in front of the class. 

– You can share what you want to learn, earn, and discern (see what I did there?) from the class. 

– You can ask questions about opportunities in the field (for example, internships, independent studies, study abroad funding, scholarships, conferences, etc.).

The list goes on! But, the point remains the same, go to office hours at some point over the course of the semester.

…your work is not complete. 



Tuesday’s Tidbit 

Limit your social media use – even if it is a part of your job. Set a timer (even if that simply means watching the clock), and stick with that. If it’s 10 minutes, force yourself to log off when that time is up – NO MATTER WHAT. 
Then, get back to work. 

“You Can’t Deposit Excuses”

@dereklanderson posted this to his Instagram a while back, but if this isn’t motivation for the soul, I don’t know what is!

Granted, we won’t all become millionaires, fly in PJs on PJs (see what I did there?), or play in the NBA; however, we can all follow Mr. Anderson’s advice. Never quit on yourself. We all have a story. We all have faced adversity. Don’t use that as an excuse to give up. 
Thanks for the reminder @dereklanderson
