Fru Skov i opgave-mode

I januar sad jeg en hel uge og skrev opgave. Det gik virkeligt nemt og smertefrit i forhold til hvad det plejer. Jeg havde planer om at skrive ned hvad jeg gjorde, som en huskeliste til mig selv, men fik aldrig tid til det, da vi skulle flytte lige efter opgaven var afleveret. Nu sidder jeg her igen, og har svært ved at komme igang, så her kommer lidt inspiration.

Før i tiden var det at skrive opgave ofte en dårlig oplevelse for mig. Jeg kunne bruge en hel uge på at lave overspringshandlinger og gå mere og mere i panik, samtidigt med at jeg blev utroligt sur på mig selv over alt det, jeg ikke fik lavet. Hvorefter jeg brugte en enkelt aften/nat på at skrive opgaven dagen før den skulle afleveres. Meget klassisk. For det meste blev det faktisk en ret god opgave.

Der var dog dengang, hvor min overspringshandling bestod i at se samtlige afsnit af Desperate Housewives – en beskæftigelse, der kræver en ihærdig indsats – opgaven blev noget kortfattet, og gik ind til et rent 2-tal.

Sådan var det i mine to år på uni og på 3K – før barn. Mange (med børn, selvfølgelig) havde forsikret mig om, at jeg ville udnytte tiden langt mere effektiv når jeg selv fik barn. Måske fik de ret…

Da jeg i januar skulle skrive min første opgave efter 1 års barsel med alt hvad det indebærer (heftig ammehjerne – og jeg ammer endda endnu), gik det over al forventning! Aldrig har jeg oplevet mig selv være så rolig og fattet og ikke mindst effektiv.

Hvad skete der lige? Jeg kan umuligt være blevet klogere (hjernen er stadig ikke på toppen). Måske har jeg bare fundet nøglen til min måde at arbejde på? Måske var “tidspresset” en virkelig gavnlig faktor for mig?

Jeg har lavet en liste over de ting, jeg gjorde godt. For at huske dem. Det er mest ment som gode råd til mig selv, men det er da kun godt, hvis andre også kan få glæde af dem. Husk, vi lærer alle på hver vores måde, og det handler om, at knække koden til din personlige måde.

  • Lav en plan. For mig fungerer det godt at lave en plan for en dag af gangen. På en liste skriver jeg præcis hvilke tidsrum, jeg vil arbejde i, og hvornår der er pause. Jeg deler arbejdet ind i læse og skrive, og skriver evt. hvad der skal læses og skrives om.
  • Start med overspringshandlingerne. Jeg ved, at nogle vil være uenige med mig her. For nogen fungerer det nok bedre bare at komme igang med det samme, for så er man ligesom igang. Men jeg har erfaret, at hvis jeg giver mig selv lov til at bruge 10-15 min. på overspringshandlinger først, så er de ikke så spændende længere. Og når man først har trawlet diverse sociale medier igennem, er der jo ikke så meget mere at komme efter. Især ikke om formiddagen.
  • Start med at skrive. Næste skridt er at komme igang med at skrive. Hvis jeg har svært ved at komme igang, laver jeg et dokument for hvert emne/afsnit i opgaven, og siger til mig selv “prøv at skriv alt, du ved om dette emne”. Det handler om ikke at være kræsen eller perfektionistisk. Først og fremmest skal man bare have skrevet noget, og så kan man altid sortere i det bagefter.
  • Tag notater i hånden. Når jeg sidder og læser i en bog, hjælper det mig virkelig meget, at tage notater i hånden. Jeg sidder simpelthen med et godt gammeldags kladdehæfte ved siden af. Grunden til det virker er, at jeg ved at lægge computeren væk, både gør noget nyt, men også afskærer mig fra alle de overspringshandlinger, internettet rummer.
  • Skær ned på kaffe. Hælder du spandevis af kaffe ned når der er dømt opgaveskrivning? Det gjorde jeg selv på uni. Jeg troede det ville gøre mig mere frisk, men det er sjældent tilfældet, når man har vænnet kroppen til store mængder koffein. Det gør mig faktisk mere nervøs og stresset, hvilket gør, at jeg arbejder meget dårligere. I min sidste opgaveperiode drak jeg et par kopper hjemmefra, og tog så hen på skolen eller biblioteket, hvor der ikke på samme måde er kaffe tilgængeligt. Ok, det er der på skolen. Men jeg valgte at lade være med hele tiden at gå ud i køkkenet. Jeg oplevede at være meget mere rolig i min krop, og ikke gå i panik, som før i tiden. Desuden giver store mængder koffein forringet søvn, så man kan ende med at være endnu mere udkørt den næste dag.
  • Hav en “gulerod” senere på dagen. Apropos kaffe. Jeg kan godt lide at have noget at se frem til. Det er fedt når det hele bare virker surt. Fx planlægger jeg nogle gange at gå på café over frokost eller hen på eftermiddagen, købe en kop kaffe, og så nyde den. Altså virkelig nyde, som i at man ikke laver andet end det. Det kan også være en is eller whatever. Det er bare fedt at have en “belønning” eller noget, som kan få energiniveauet op, hvis man ønsker at fortsætte arbejdet bagefter.
  • Arbejd udenfor hjemmet. Det her er noget jeg ikke praktiserer lige nu, men jeg havde gode erfaringer med det i januar. Det er rimeligt simpelt: derhjemme er der alverdens rod og fristende afledningsmanøvrer, for slet ikke at tale om køleskabet, som opfordrer til kedsomheds-spisning. Tag hen på studiet, en læseplads eller biblioteket. Hvis du er typen, der kan koncentrere dig på en café, er det også hyggeligt. Personligt foretrækker jeg et sted med total stilhed, og helst et sted, hvor der ikke er andre.
  • 22-minutters-reglen. Et personligt gennembrud for mig! Jeg har altid haft koncentrationsbesvær. Jeg kan huske, at jeg i alle de år jeg spillede klassisk musik, havde meget svært ved at øve mig. I hvert fald i en time ad gangen. For nogle år siden forsøgte jeg mig med kun at øve 20 minutter ad gangen, og det virkede faktisk! Jeg glemte det, men kom så i tanker om det, da jeg skulle skrive opgave i januar. Jeg har den holdning, at hvis jeg ikke kan arbejde effektivt, så kan jeg ligeså godt lade være. Og 22 minutters effektiv læsning er bedre end 1 time, hvor man egentligt havde hovedet et helt andet sted. Derfor bygger jeg min tidsplan op således, at jeg læser eller skriver i 22 minutter og derefter holder 3 minutters pause. Når jeg sidder og læser/skriver er min telefon på flytilstand. Og i pausen holder jeg pause. Det vil sige, at jeg laver noget helt andet. På den måde er jeg mere “frisk” når jeg vender tilbage til arbejdet.
  • Gå en tur. Det siger sig selv. Frisk luft og solskin er godt for hjernen og for kroppen. Der er grænser for hvor længe man kan sidde stille og stadig koncentrere sig.
