A New Approach to Success


A New Approach to Success

Because starting a whole new series wasn’t enough, today I’m bringing you a SECOND new series!

The inspiration for this new series came from reading a book called How to Become a Straight-A Student. I ordered this book early during my fall semester and kept putting off reading it, but I shouldn’t have. It only took me about two days to read it and it wasn’t as dry as I imagined it would be. This book inspired me to take a new approach this semester and share my journey with you!

This guide is based on developing time management skills, beating procrastination (can I get an Amen!?), taking better notes, and developing kick-ass study skills. The goal is to work smarter and to minimize the time you are working. If you want to ace your classes and still have a social life, then this is the plan for you.

I will be using the framework of the tips the author, Cal Newport, gives and adapt them to my own personal needs and style. If you take the new approach with me feel free to adapt my plan to your own ways. No plan is perfect for everyone because everyone is unique.

I will give you the framework of the plan in several posts (otherwise we’d be here all day) and then update you on my progress throughout the semester.

I don’t know if this plan with help me get straight-A’s, but that’s OK with me. Even though I did well my first semester, I know that if I don’t develop some strong time-management and study skills things will go downhill fast. If you feel the same way, take the challenge with me!

Check out the first part of the guide on Time Management.!
