If you keep doing the same things, you will keep getting the same results.
If you want different results you need to try new things.
This is true for everything in life including your academics and your education. So if you are not 100% pleased with your grades, or your SAT or ACT test scores, or your overall academic standing… you need to actively do something about it… and the sooner the better. So it’s a new year, and it’s the time for resolutions and fresh starts… so make the changes you need and get going in the right direction.
Here are questions that you need to ask yourself right now…
- Evaluate your study habits
Are you ‘efficient’ with your time?
Do you always finish projects that you begin?
Are you prepared for deadlines or are you always cramming?
Do you understand the material or just ‘get it’?
- Evaluate your time management
Do you plan ahead?
Do you follow plans that you do make or do you ‘freelance’?
Are you ready to hand in work or take tests when they are scheduled?
Do you have a calendar that you follow?
- Evaluate your information management
How do you track information?
Are your notes accessible? – Can you find what you need when you need it?
Are your notes consistent with your learning style – visual? auditory?
How many different ways do you know how to make an outline?
Are you using online and offline resources?
Evaluate your daily action plan
Are your days productive?
Do you complete all of your work?Most of your work?Some of you work?
Do you plan ahead and begin work on longer term projects?
Are you able to complete all of the work that you need to complete in the allotted time?
Do you plan for the following day each day?
Change has to begin by evaluating where you are and determining where you want to be… and then taking action to reach your goals.
