The worst mistake is putting it off, the next is changing it your priorities too often. With time you might need to change them but not before that.
A to-do list
Once you have figures out what you want in life don‘t forget life has short-term goals, things you need to finish daily. It is best if you maintain a weekly schedule. In your schedule be precise, for instance don’t write “study”. You will be pulling your hair off wondering what to study. Remember to always add some ‘me-time’. It helps.
Sometimes schedules will have to be overlooked: try to cross that bridge when you get to it not before.
Ask for Help

They have passed your age; they might know how to help you. A teacher will always appreciate it more if they feel that you are giving life the best you have.
Dip in the pool
