What is the key to improving your time-management skills? How can you make sure that you don’t work on your assignments at a snail’s pace?
By learning to write faster, of course!
You see, the worst nightmare for many students is having to work against the clock to meet due dates. But, when faced with a difficult assignment, we tend to work very slowly. Ideas just don’t come to mind, writer’s block rules supreme, while our tired eyes, hands and fingers simply refuse to do what we want them to do.
But there are alternatives to all these problems. Why not try a few of the many helpful techniques available to become more productive? Don’t let their overwhelming abundance discourage you, though, because it shows you how many options you have to choose from.
To simplify things for you, we have prepared an infographic that will give you some great tips on writing faster.
There are a wide range of things you can do to improve your performance while writing. Some are not all that obvious. Take, for example, games. For most of us, games and work belong in two separate universes, but playing a game can actually change your perspective and even your brain activity for the better.
Think about it!
While playing a game you still do some kind of mental work, but it’s not the same as slogging away at a long paper. Thus, you unwind and remain active at the same time.
You’ll find some of the other tips are even easier to follow. Can you believe that after a simple walk, bike ride or a couple of basic exercises you get a second wind? Well, why not try it today to reap the benefits right away.
One thing to keep in mind is that just being able to type at an impressive pace is not a guarantee of fast writing. A lot of techniques have much more to do with training your mind than with training your fingers.
After all, one of the biggest problems for all students and beginning writers – the fear of the blank page – stems from the mind, from a faulty self-image and approach to the writing process.
And you know what the best thing is?
You don’t have to master all the techniques listed below in our infographic right away. Try them out as you need to see which work best for you.
