Working and studying at the same time? Know the do's and don'ts that you need to do. Shrug that stress a way and invite a more fun way working and studying!

Common Problems as a Working Student

1. Pressure
Based on my experiences, deadlines are my number one enemy.
A project to be passed, assignments, study for the upcoming quizzes, exams and the other side of my brain says I should process the billing, payslips, update collections, and a hell lot more of accounting work.

2. Time Management
Sometimes, when you have a lot of work to do, you don't know which task to do first.

3. On the spot problems
For every work you do, you can't expect that you can do it right the first try you do it. You have problems every time. Problems just pop out of no where.

4. Stress
When you suffer stress, feeling so tired that your scalp wants to burst out!
Tiring, and boring days of life.

5. Losing hope
When you try and try but you can't succeed. You can't do what you want to be done. There are really days when you lose hope in what you are doing and feel tired and lazy to do it.

6. Days of Famish
There are also days when you run out of money and you look at the calendar and see that payroll is still so far away.

How To Deal With Problems

Relate to the numbers above.

1. AVOID Pressure
The best way to deal with pressure is that you should finish what you started. Don't let it wait on your table. Don't wait until another work comes because that leads to pressure.

2. Manage Time Wisely
Grab a pen and paper and jot down your tasks. What needs to be done first and what to do next. Simple as that!

3. Encourage yourself to be better
You know that problems will come, that is why you have to encourage yourself! Don't give up so easily just because you didn't reach your goal. Maybe it's just a bad day, not a bad life! :)

4. Stress
Stressed? Get a massage! A long hot soothing bath! Or go to the beach end breathe. Delete stress and Accept Positive vibes!

5. Losing hope - MAKE HOPE. FIND WAYS.
When you lose hope, inspire yourself. Read a book, or listen to good music that will soothe you.

6. Never spend beyond your limit
When you know that you're income is not that big, you should not keep on spending every single cent on nothing. Make sure that what you're spending on is important.

Follow your Passion!

The most important thing to do when you are working and studying at the same time is to have fun in what you are doing.
When you love what you do, and you are having fun, whatever problem you encounter will never bring you down because you will find ways to get out of that situation.


Go, don't let a day go wasted. Inspire others, make them smile.. You don't know how you can make a difference :)
