Today, I want to write a little about procrastination and staying focused. As someone that has many issues focusing/sitting still, studying is very hard for me. I have tried everything. Running while listening to lectures. Writing on a white board. Pacing and reading my powerpoints. At the end of the day, I somehow manage to get it done.
However, things are a little different in medical school. In order to succeed one must be able to focus for an insane amount of hours in the day. My school recommends studying for 8-10 hours. Umm. Yeah.
I’ve been struggling to keep up with my classmates. I have been struggling to keep up with the boat load of material.
Only one thing has helped me get through it all.
That is prayer.
Prayer has allowed me to calm my overactive mind.
Prayer has allowed me to put my situation into a new perspective.
Prayer has reminded me that I am not in this alone.
Friends, I encourage you to take time out of your day for prayer and reflection. I promise you it will make the journey much easier. Procrastinate with prayer and you won’t be wasting time…in reality you will be doing the best thing you can do with your time.
