Rule #17: After finals, take a long break to de-stress and refresh yourself. Also, when you start next semester, make sure to leave all the negative/bad stuff that happened this semester and start with a fresh, new mindset.

Rule #16: “It’s never as bad as it seems. It will look better in the morning.” – Colin Powell. Overreacting is a natural human reaction to any problem, but sometimes it’s just best to step back from the situation, wait, and let some time pass before jumping to conclusions or making a d...

Rule #15: Learn not to over schedule. We tend to want to do many things at once. But in my opinion, it would be better to do fewer things and do them well than to over load yourself and be at risk of burning out. Find what you truly want to do and learn to cut out the unnecessary things....

Rule #13: Don’t let work pile up! Take care of it earlier, rather than later. We have all procrastinated on work, but if you are like me you probably always regret it afterwards. In the long run, doing the work ahead of time (although you may not want to) will help reduce the stress of pulling an al...

Rule #12: Always show up on time to meetings because decisions are made by those who show up. It’s important show up to meetings because some decisions can only be made by the people who attend. If you want to have your input and opinion in the way your organization is run, then make sure you ta...

Rule #11: Never be overly optimistic or overly pessimistic, strive to be cautiously optimistic when you are in a competition. Too often we get too optimistic and end up not trying so hard because we think we have already won. Or, we become too pessimistic and again do not try that hard because we ...

Rule #8: Instead of complaining about problems, find solutions to those problems and fix them. In today’s society, we have become accustomed to complaining about everything, but fail to actually come up with solutions. True leadership comes from the ability to recognize certain problems, but al...

Rule #7: Finish typing your essay, then double-space it. We all have to deal with long essays that feel like forever to complete, but if you type as much as you can without double spacing and then double space it at the end, you will be amazed with how much more you have written. It’s an awesom...

Rule #6: A person, who is nice to you but rude to the waiter, is not a nice person. I got this rule from my communication teacher freshman year. He explained to us if we ever wanted to test the character of a person, take them out to dinner and see how they treat the waiter. It will tell you a lot a...

Zani’s Rules of Order Rule #5: Don’t procrastinate this semester. As the semester begins, we are naturally pulled into the mindset of putting things off like assignments and homework till later; it is the reality of being a college student. But this semester, try something different and stay...

Rule 4: “Get mad, then get over it” - Colin Powell This is a rule that relates to everyone, because everyone has been faced with times when they get mad at something or someone. The point of this rule is to let the anger out of your system for a minute or two, then get over what made you mad and...

Rule 3: In life always try to fit 10 pounds into a five-pound bag. Sometimes in life you have to do the impossible to make things work. Some people will laugh and say that this is just a rule about spatial efficiency, but in fact it is about doing more than is thought to be possible. When the pressur...

Always check the small things. This rule I got from Colin Powell. It is an important rule because in life we easily focus on the “big picture” and forget that for the big picture to turn out successful, it takes the culmination of a lot of small things. In the end, the success of the “big pi...

Always Have A Plan B This rule is important because in life we know that things rarely go the way we first imagined them, so it is important to have something to fall back on. It always helps to have a backup plan that you have already thought of and can easily fall back on. So when your first plan ...
