Perhaps you were not too happy with how you finished up last semester after seeing your grades. If that is the case, there are two ways in which you can handle a poor semester: continue your next semester with no changes to your behavior, or examine what you did wrong the last semester and make adjustments from there. I’m going to talk about the last option since it is clearly the better of the two.
Firstly, examine what you did wrong in your previous semester. Maybe you procrastinated and held off assignments until the last possible second, causing you to turn in assignments at a much lower quality than you are truly capable of. Perhaps you tried to get away without reading the material. Maybe you skipped many classes or attended class, but simply did not pay attention.
Whatever the case may be, it’s time to switch those behaviors for the positive outcome you want. As soon as you come to terms with what it is you were doing wrong, the easier it is to make the necessary changes. Trust me, now is the best time to make those changes while you’re starting fresh in a new semester. You don’t want those negative behaviors to become habit! Mistakes happen, but learning from them is what matters.
