BALANCE...WE ALL NEED THAT IN OUR LIVES
Being a student at Juilliard can be tough. But there is one thing that a successful Juilliard student has a good handle on:
(figuratively speaking, of course...although the dancers could probably do that ^ too)
Since I've been a student here, I realized the importance of having not only a schedule for school but for outside of school as well. In fact, it was living legend Wynton Marsalis who told me to make a schedule for myself, and to include time to do nothing. As funny as it sounds, he was so right. And it wasn't until I moved off campus and got my own apartment that I realized how important it was to be very organized, personally, career-wise and school-wise.
I also have this Word document that has all my major assignments and their due dates as well as major engagements that I look at daily. I've started to realize that it helps me to have it all in one place so that I don't overlook anything. So far, it's working out well.
It feels so good to be organized, and it's an even better feeling when you cross things off of the TO-DO List that have been looming for what seems like an eternity.
So good luck with getting and staying organized, and incorporating more balance into your life!
