Group Project Hell

Image result for college group project

Almost all of you will have to do a group project this semester.

Almost all of you will look around and realize that in every group, there will be a shirker, a kid who talks too much and another kid who barely shows up (but promises he’ll be there next time).

Usually, you will be graded as a group. This will fall into the life isn’t fair category.

How you handle this is up to you. There’s no perfect method. But there is one thing you can always do: your role. Focus on doing what you can do to make the project great, and regardless of what happens, you’ll have the made the most of it.

Think of it as prep for the “real world.” Bosses may not separate the studs from the duds right away, but inevitably it gets sorted out. You worry about you, and let them worry about everything else.
