Submissions madness

Most of us have just been relieved after submitting all the term assignments/project reports. On this last day of classes for the term, we had some or the other submission in each one of the 6 subjects that we have currently. As if this alone was not enough, there were new requirements about the submissions cropping up at the last minute and some details remaining fuzzy nearly till the end. Overall, a needlessly stressing experience. The Computer Centre becomes a beehive of frantic activity on the last day of the term - the printers working incessantly (if they have not broken down or run out of paper already), people rushing around with papers or being glued to their seats typing out last details in a frenzy. But we met the 5pm deadline finally, so all's well that ends well.

This kind of frenzy has increasingly been part of present day business, many times right- essentially because of the nature of demands-; more often not right - because others have goofed up in their time management or just to prove one's "worth"-.
But it would be best to to learn cope with these situations.
Some kind of "escapes" do work as esssential and neccessary stress-busters, but the tool which works best is - accepting the chaos as it is and devise methods to manage it.
