The routine of those who work and attend a master’s program is extremely busy and to reconcile both activities and perform well is of immense complexity.
Many people believe that this combination of work + master’s degree can be a combination that can lead to frustration, for not being able to cope with the responsibilities required in both, but we also can’t deny that there are many advantages to earning a master’s degree. We have already dealt with this subject in another occasion, remember?
That’s why we decided to help you out and prepared a list with 5 ways to fit a master’s program into your daily activities routine.
1º Organize your routine between professional and academic obligations
Never believe that doing two activities at the same time will be good for you. Organization is essential for you to be able to perform both activities effectively. It is very important that your priority is well defined, this does not mean that you will stop doing other tasks, on the contrary, this will make you have discipline when it comes to work and study.
The ideal is that you organize your weekly routine always on Sundays.
Sunday is usually a day of “rest” where our minds are a little freer and time is on our side. Therefore, use this time to organize your week, delimit the time so that all the activities of the week can be completed.
2º Reserve a place for your study time
Your study place should be an adequate environment to help you perform your tasks, and it directly influences your learning process, that’s why it’s important to reserve this space for you.
As time goes by, the habit of studying in a reserved place and with a pre-determined schedule will help you in your concentration and assimilation of the studied content.
3º Choose a theme that you are familiar with to do your research
Remember, in a master’s program you will need time to develop your research. If you already have some familiarity with the subject or even have developed some work on top of the research theme, this process will be less complex for you.
Just imagine, you are researching something extremely complex and that is not part of your everyday life, and on top of that you are able to combine work and master’s classes. I confess to you that this task would not be easy at all.
Therefore, look for a subject that you are familiar with so that this process will not be so tedious.
4ºTalk to your superior about your master’s program
Letting your superior know about your double shift is extremely important. This will help you to plan better and will help your boss to understand your side.
He will possibly lead you in a smart way so that your master’s efforts can be applied within the company you work for. Thus creating an environment of mutual help where you can apply your acquired knowledge to help everyone around you.
5º Don’t forget to have fun
Fun is fundamental in a process of high personal demand.
Learning to stop at the right moments and to have fun, to enjoy the leisure time is extremely important so that all the commitment of studying and working can be rewarded.
After all, you deserve and are investing in your best version.
