New year resolutions for students
“It is not in doing what you like, but in liking what you do that is the secret of happiness”
James M Barrie
This to me seems a simple Mantra of success in life, especially student life, the bedrock of once future.
If your aim is meaningful education, then a goal-oriented approach towards the expected result is the
Each educational program comes with too much to be accomplished in too little a time. This requires
determination, planning and subsequent action. What better time than New Year there could be to
begin this process, below we look at certain essential ingredients of student new year resolutions.
1. Intense work should supersede planning: often students spend plenty of time calculating the
number of pages they would need to write and the number of hours they would need to put
into completing an assignment before they could actually begin doing it. Several hours are
spent by children in designing and modifying a study timetable instead of actually studying. A
timely and energetic start is what can keep you on time and help maintain quality. This
prevents you from panic at the eleventh hour and acts as cushion during ill health and other
technical and family problems.
2. Dreams are far from reality but can be made to come true: To cover this distance between
dream and reality it is inevitable to have targets that are realistic and practically attainable.
3. Slow and steady wins the race: Missed deadline is equal to lost opportunity. With both the
hands full all the time, it is important that work is done keeping in mind deadlines and not on
the basis of interest or mood. It is important to recognize, accept and put efforts in the areas
that really require it. Organized and methodical work always gives the opportunity for revision and
4. Self-inspired goals: You will definitely fail if you are doing something because others are doing
it too. Planning of a routine and goals to be achieved should be individualized followed by hard
work in the desired direction.
5. Minimize Distractions: The most difficult task in life is to maintain a balance between the work
and play elements of the daily routine. Often, we are drawn by temptation rather than target.
It is important to keep a check on activities like video games, phone, social media and TV in
order to remain up to date.
6. Healthy body leads to an alert mind: A balanced diet, exercise and proper sleep is the key to
good health and thus also to an active mind that can concentrate and focus well helping you to
achieve more in less time. It is important that just like the time for study, the time to eat, sleep
and play is also well decided and regulated.
7. Futuristic plans: This is the time of specialization. You do not need to be the jack of all traits, but
rather Master of one. Hence early educational plans should be developed keeping in mind
future vocation and career goals.
8. Life-Skills: Early years of life are the best time for picking important skills such as management
skills, communication skills, social and interpersonal skills, and many others Which are pillars
of all-round development and hence also of a successful and happy life.
Hence New Year resolutions of students should not merely be academic but aimed at growth and
development of different faculties and skills, also an endeavor of Samsidh schools to help individuals
face challenges of life with courage and ability, growing up into independent and responsible citizens.
