Excellence is one of the things we want to reach in life. In any area, we always wanted to be better or maybe on top. But the reality is, to excel is not a piece of cake. It takes effort and perseverance.
Since the time we first stepped into the school, some parents keep on reminding to do our best. Or maybe, some of us tried to be motivate by the external rewards presented my our mom. Sometimes, we are prompted to be the best because of the ‘new phones’ or ‘bike’ prepared by our parents at the end of the year.
However, to top is not an easy. We cannot deny that there are more exciting things to do than to study. In fact, there are times that even if you spend much time to review, nothing happens.
Here are some study habits you should apply to excel.
Plot your study time schedule
Create a time schedule when to study. It is important that you stick with the schedule you have set when to study. Select a specific time in a day or week when will you invest your time to seriously do that stuff. Follow the time you have set. The key is still in yourself.
Choose a perfect place to study
Find a comfortable place to study. Location is very important in creating a good study habits. It is recommended to be quiet. However, there are some who are not comfortable with a very solemn place. Again, it depends on your comfort zone. The most important is you can focus in your chosen place.
Limit your time in studying. You don’t need to give all your energy just to study all the subjects. Just give ample time to the subjects you want to study. A study with comprehension is better than studying all night without understanding. Do not do cramming. Study ahead of time.
Consistency in your study play a very significant part. Studying in just a single time is not enough. You have to practice it with consistency to achieve a good study habits. It’s just hard in the beginning. But later if you develop the habit, you will surely enjoy it.
Set your goals
When opening a book or notes, make sure to have a specific goal to accomplish so that you will not find it as a waste of time. You have to consider the things you want to achieve in the specific time you allotted.
