How to study?

Some notes on student success:

  • Someone’s got to tell you money is not extremely important, at least for now.
  • Success repeats.
  • There is one quality in all achievers, “Gratitude”!
  • Success is not bought. It is built, little by little.
  • Phased repetition is more important than one time slog.
  • Focus. Have a direction and stick to it.
  • First 15 hours or so of study gives you an idea, does not make you an expert.
  • After the first 100 hours of preparation, you will know that you know nothing. Keep patience and confidence. Stick to your direction.
  • Practice makes you perfect. There is this 10 year rule. Listen to Angela Lee Duckworth.
  • Mind works at a different speed. Writing perhaps slows you down enough to give your mind the time to think. So, write down important things. Revise.
  • When you can no longer think, stop reading. Take a break. Aptitude is what you are training for. Not, memory.
  • Most key events such as exams happen in the morning hours. So, keep your body cycle such that you are at your best during these hours.
  • Find pleasure in the process of achievement, and not in the achievement itself. That way, you will have many hours of satisfaction instead of just a few moments.
