The time of the year is upon us. The time of new school supplies, backpacks, teachers, classes and if you’re like me, new goals. Besides New Years back to school is the second time of year where people make goals to better themselves. When it comes to school, especially college, balancing every thing can be exceptionally hard. Between work, school, a social life and rodeo I feel like I barely have time to breath.
Last year my barrel-racing career really suffered. Let’s just say I lost track of my priorities. I wasn’t taking the time out of my day that I needed to ride horses. This year my goal is to really focus on my horses and barrel racing and be successful in college rodeo. With that though comes a lot of work. I also have bills to pay and grades to keep up. With that being said I’ve put together some tips for me and all the other people out there that have goals like mine but also have other responsibilities to attend to.
Tips for balancing work, school, rodeo, and just life in general:
The early bird gets the worm! If you’re like me (or the majority of all college kids) mornings are not your thing. Something I have noticed though is that no successful person sleeps till noon every day. So my goal this year is to wake up early enough to get my three horses rode before class every Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. Monday and Wednesday I’ll ride in the evenings.
I hope these tips help you have a successful school year and rodeo season! Keep on kicking and it will all pay off in the end!
