Mature Student Needs Good Study Habits To Get Better Grades

Today’s post is from Thanh who is challenged with focus and concentration when sitting down to studying – a common problem a lot of students have – bad study habits. First, let’s hear from Thanh…

I am not a young person, I am 53 year old, ambitious, hard working, good character, honest, responsible…I took a course more than two year ( Life Licence Qualification Program) I try, it try but I keep failing. I saw your program online, I ordered, hopefully it could help me to pass the exam. In present time, the job I have seems not secure any more. I wish to have to have the certificate to persue a new career. Would you advise the solution to affect my study? I work from 6am and be home at 6pm after home I prepare my own food, when I sit down to concentrate on the book, I feel like sleeping. But I watching TV or online reading I was awake. Sound like I am lazy, am I? Thank you for your concern.

Speed reading is a MUST-HAVE skill for any serious student. It’s the difference between being a ‘bookworm’ and having a fun student lifestyle. Imagine reading 6 times faster than your classmates – what would that do to your grades?

When I was studying for my first Ph.D., I was reading 1,800 words/minute which meant that I was 6 times faster than my classmates. On a Friday night, from 7 to 10 PM I would read for 3 hours, and then watch a movie and go to bed. My classmates had to spend ALL DAY Saturday and ALL DAY SUNDAY to read what I had read on Friday night.

That meant I had the WHOLE WEEKEND to do whatever I wanted – additional study, or in my case, I was DOUBLING the SALES and TRIPLING my PROFITS while I was opening up a second branch office!

How I Cut My Study Time From Days To Hours And Got Better Grades In The Process

Sometimes it seems like some people are just naturally smart. It seems like they get good grades while they are playing more than actually studying.

You probably think that their good grades come easily without studying or without any hard work involved, right?

I tried all kinds of tricks to improve my grades– studying at different times of the day, in different places, by different schedules. Each one made a difference.

I wasted countless hours doing things that didn’t work.  My frustration and anger at not being taught how to study drove me to systematizing the process so that success was repeatable and, more importantly, efficient.  Even though I love reading and learning, I hate to waste time – especially if I know I can read and learn more quickly.

Being perpetually curious, I started to look into just how my classmates were getting such astonishingly high grades when they seemed to spend all their time goofing off rather than studying.

Since some of my friends were among these straight A students, I asked them outright, and this is some of what they said:

  1. “We need to create adequate space in our lives for leisure and enjoyment. The human mind truly expands when engaged in an enjoyable experience, and understand what we study.”
  2. “Since life is more than constant studying, we’ve begun to tend towards laziness instead, so you have to figure out how to note the most important points and develop a way to remember them by association with something that you really relate to during the learning process, this will have what you learn “stick” in your mind, along with the pleasant and relaxing experience you have at that time.”
  3. “Split up the lessons into small focused ones so that you chunk stuff down. What this accomplishes is an improvement of your focus while increasing your memory recall.”

Anthony Robbins calls it “Mirroring the Masters”.

That’s what I started to do.

One step at a time, I created a SYSTEM that was repeatable – it became my book with the name that says it all – Get The Best Grades With The Least Amount Of Effort.

I decided that I wanted to get that kind of free time as well. I had been wasting whole weekends reviewing for exams, when with what I ultimately learned I would have been able to do better with only two or three hours of study!

Yeah I know it sounds too good to be true – but y’know what? I got to the point where I was fed up with non-stop pressure and hour after hour of sitting at my desk trying to learn everything JUST TO GET BY.

I had enough and decided to see if this ‘stuff really did work’.

Y’know what?!?!

It did and it does – but only for those who learn the techniques, tools and strategies.

I eventually developed tips and tricks to help my friends and classmates ( the first draft of my book) and believe it or not, I was met with resistance. I hadn’t “proven” myself and because of that, I didn’t have the credibility. It was often too late for me to help those who needed it the most.

That has changed now. BUT it’s too late for my classmates of 20+ years ago…

I have accomplished things that are “public” or within people’s view and I now have credibility.

I am living proof that these strategies work.

I  also have an amazing number of success stories from students all over the globe who have put my advice to good use, and more of them are doing so every day. I’d love to count you among the successes I’ve chronicled in seminars and books!

Let me know by posting a comment on this blog!

I genuinely think that just about anyone can learn these fundamental principles and use them to improve their grades immensely– possibly from Ds all the way up to Bs and sometimes As– something many people only dream of.

But nothing happens unless you change something.

Make the decision now to stop wasting time studying and start to get better grades THIS SEMESTER.

Onward and upward!

P.S.

When you flunk your next exam, test or quiz, come back to this blog and read the posts – there is enough content here to prevent that from happening again. My book has much more content than this blog and it’s the best investment you could make – it’s a fraction of the cost of an academic textbook, the price of a double music CD… Think about that for a second.

If you didn’t flunk, but you got stressed out of your mind – consider the option that you could get the SAME GRADES OR BETTER without the stress. Why put yourself through that?

For me, the STRESS and ANXIETY was the key driver to learning these strategies – I always get ‘pumped up’ for exams and quizzes, but more than that is no fun – I want the calm sense of confidence that I KNOW I can ACE an EXAM.

That total feeling of serenity is priceless ESPECIALLY when everyone else is fidgeting, twitching and sometimes getting sick in the bathroom before a final. That’s just not for me.

P.S.
I know you’re committed to increasing your GPA. I know that because you’re here, reading this.

To help you, you have to help yourself. Do the exercises I suggest and watch what happens.

This first exercise takes 5 minutes and 6 seconds… Is that too much to ask to learn an explosively powerful technique to improve your study skills?

I think not.

But then again I’m biased. You’ve seen the results I’ve produced for myself and others…

I constantly focus on what I know but don’t know I know…

I ask myself the ‘Million Dollar Question” —

“I know I don’t know, but if I did know, what am I doing that is working that I don’t know I’m doing RIGHT?”

Ask yourself this question and start the dialogue with me on this blog by posting your comments so I can HELP YOU GET BETTER GRADES WITH THE LEAST AMOUNT OF EFFORT.
