1. have a plan.
2. act on plan.
3. stop wasting time on the internet.
4. go only to sites that you need at that particular point in your life. sometimes you need to watch a monty python clip on youtube. do it. but get out after one or two, not two hundred.
5. write often. about anything that catches your fancy. one of my favourite artists has this on his blog and it has been an inspiration for me to start my blog up. Hugh McLeod has this huge manifesto on how to be creative (HTBC). there is a nice pdf of HTBC too. sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do but like Hugh says, you don't need to quit your day job over it just yet.
6. be very clear on how you spend your time. it's all you've got at the end of the day.
now dears, i need to go and clear my head and do some studying. though my exam results are gonna be out in a few days and i'm most certain they are going to be terrible, i will not give up hope that i can do this and get my degree if i work harder. so whatever you are doing as well, good luck and godspeed.
