It's 2017, so now is the perfect time to get focused and really make this year your best! Check out these 3 tips on how to stay focused this in 2017:


Determination is one of the main factors that can help keep you focused throughout 2017. If you’re determined to achieve something you will succeed. Keep reminding yourself of the reasons why you are studying and constantly think about the outcome at the end.


What level do you want to reach in your career? A promotion? Maybe an entirely new career? Or do you want to gain entry into university? Creating goals will help you decide what you want to achieve, separate what’s important and what’s not, motivate yourself and help build your self-confidence. So get creating yours!
Don’t forget to make your goals SMART:

  • Specific
  • Measurable
  • Attainable
  • Relevant
  • Time-bound

Get organised

With the new year here, make sure you get organised and stay organised! Planning your time and working out a study schedule can really help with this:

  • Work out how much time you have available and when
  • List your tasks
  • Prioritise your work
  • Plan how long you’re going to spend on each task and set targets for each
  • Make your work less daunting by splitting it up into smaller tasks
