    Ok, I want some help with this. In grade 12, lack motivation, University apps are in, and now I have no real reason to put all my effort into my work. Problem is, if I coast too much I may lose my acceptance's (of course, that's assuming that they arrive). Anyone got any tips to cure this dreaded disease? :(
     
  2. Keep working, because the LAST thing you want is to be put on probation your first semester/trimester/quarter at university. I had a friend who got into Stanford and slacked like crazy in the spring of his senior year, to the extent that he failed a class and nearly got dumped by Stanford. His parents are Chinese immigrants, so you can imagine how pleasant it must have been at the dinner table every night... :eek:
     
  3. I could come over and smack you around....

    Take it easy, but don't give up on work. Don't slack too much, but you can lay back a little bit.

    Here's some Dalai Lama advice for you, and his religion is happiness, so there ya go:

    Whenever you want to slack, don't.

    I know your first reaction is "nice advice, man."

    Realize that I'm 23, have been through senioritis 2 separate times, once as the editor of the college newspaper (not a good time to slack) and got through both times with incidental control over urges to slack.

    There is no overall panacea. It is an urge-by-urge battle.
     
  6. Smart slackers slack in moderation.
     
  7. Unless the smart slackers don't have anything to slack off of, so their moderate slacking doesn't slack because there's no slacking off for the smart slackers to slack.

    I'm not sure why I posted that....

    Rock on
