We all love studying don’t we? Nothing better than good old studying. That’s what you’re thinking right? Can’t wait to hit the books each night after school? Yes? No? What do you mean am I crazy?
Well it’s time to get excited about studying. It’s time took forward to studying. We want you to maximize every minute spent studying and as a result maximize every minute you don’t have to study! That’s right; we actually want you to study less. We want you to study less by learning how to power study – to study with powerful efficiency and effectiveness which cuts the amount of time spent studying in half. You have to study anyway Gordie Howe Red Wings Jersey , so why not learn how to learn more in less time with twice the results? Sound good?
So let’s take a look at the new habits you are going to introduce and start putting into practise straight away! Excited? You should be!
Successful students always engage in:
Ever think you’re studying but you’re just sitting there re-reading the same sentence about 1000 times? What did I just read? What did I just read? You’re kind of ‘studying’, but you’re not getting anywhere with your work. Instead of this, take regular 15 minute breaks for every 30 minutes of work you do. So, for every hour you spend studying you get 30 minutes off! Why do this you may ask? Well, taking breaks will restore your energy and refresh your mind – plus it will give your mind some time to take in what you have been doing. So have a break and maybe have a kit kat (or do whatever kids do these days). Bonus tip: never study for more than 45 minutes at a time because your brain tends to turn to mush and switch off at around about the 45 minute point.
Plan Their Study
Top students don’t just randomly sit down and complete work. They actually plan what they are going to do. They literally plan the time they will study and they set goals for what will be achieved. For example, your new habit could be saying ‘I will study from 6 pm to 7.15 pm with a 15 minute break at 6.30 pm. At the completion of this time I will have done all my fractions worksheets and my sociology homework. I will then go online and throw sheep at people’. Think we’re kidding? We’re not. If you want to be successful, do as successful people do. Set a plan and set a goal and stick to it. If you don’t achieve the goal, set a new one. By having set times for doing work each day it will create a routine and a routine is the first step towards developing a habit. We love affirmative habits Evgeny Svechnikov Red Wings Jersey , affirmative habits are good. When you know that you have committed to work at a specific time each day you will be mentally prepared for it. You will know 6 pm is ‘go time on study’. You will know it’s coming and be ready for it. Just like you know 7 pm is dinner time. What’s for dinner mother dearest? The goal setting part of planning is also very important. If you sit down with little idea about what you’re trying to complete you will just aimlessly go along not knowing if you’ve ‘done enough work or not’. Set a target and direct your energy towards it. Accomplish what you set out to accomplish. Build the confidence. Don’t just let the carrot dangle in front of you, bite the freaking thing (a carrot represents your ambitions and dreams in case you weren’t aware and thought we actually wanted you to eat a carrot. You didn’t think that did you?)
Front Up To The Toughest Work First
Many of us like to do the easy things first to build our confidence. That’s fair enough. Gets the blood pumping when you’re ticking items off your to-do list. BANG! 1st item ticked off. BANG! Double tick that item – now I’m rolling. DOUBLE BANG! Triple tick that item – list completed and life is good. The only challenge with this approach is that you use up your prime energy at the start of any study session and so if you are tackling the easy parts with your prime energy your batteries will be low when it comes time to tackle the hard part. So what happens then? You get tired, impatient, flustered and just give up. We all do it. We really shouldn’t though. So get in the habit of giving your prime energy to the hard tasks and completing the easy stuff last.
