Hey Smart Students!

I just wanted to drop a couple quick notes and wish you all a super happy holidays and a very merry Christmas.

I was just about to leave for Christmas Eve dinner when I got an email that I felt the need to respond to. I started to write it as an email but I realized that this message can probably help all of us in some way or another. (I forget it myself all the time.)

I’m going to publish it here and leave it up to you whether or not it’s worth sharing.

The message that prompted this came from a hard working student that had a couple rough semesters in the past. These days his grades still haven’t fully recovered but they’re back on track. Here is the message I wanted to share with him:

 

Do you know that feeling you got when you were young and couldn’t wait for Christmas?

Yea… Sure… We all know those holiday, family, and religious things but I’m talking about the more fun one when you’re younger.

I’m talking about the gifts! 😛

Those were the Christmas moments I want you to think of.

Do you know that anticipation you felt a week before Christmas? (At least if you’re lucky.)

You know something awesome is going to be coming but now you have no choice but to wait… and wait… and wait…

Okay… maybe you didn’t just wait.

I know I used to BEG my parents for early gifts. “Can I just open ONE gift?”

And I’d almost always get a definite no. (Or something about Santa only coming on Christmas…)

Does any of this sound familiar?

Anyway…

Think about that feeling.

That is the same situation you are in with your grades. 

Christmas is coming.

You know in a few months your grades will improve. You know in a few years they’ll be even better.

You’re now playing the waiting game.

Sure… you’ve got to keep up your good habits or you’ll end up with a lump of coal but you’re on the right path.

You can beg and plead with your study strategies. You can try to perfect every second of your schedule. You can adjust your day to be even more efficient. It may work but you can’t make a dramatic improvement without giving it time. Christmas can’t come earlier.

Here is the thing…

You don’t need to torture yourself to make Christmas come sooner. It is on its way.

Know that when the results show up, they’re going to be every bit as amazing as you’re imagining.

Enjoy the anticipation.

Most of your life is going to be this kind of anticipation. Revel in it.

If you’ve done the work to get yourself on the right path, patience is your next most important step. You can’t plant a seed and expect it to be full grown the next day. Life doesn’t work like that.

You’ve got this under control. Santa is coming with a bag full of presents for you.

Christmas Is On The Way – A Response To A Motivated Reader

PLEASE STOP!

This is an absolutely essential read for anyone on this blog.

I’m about 4 hours away from something big.

The story began a decade ago when I first started to share my study strategies with other students.

I had figured out the Holy Grail of academic optimization strategies – and every intermediate step to get to it. Using this strategy, I pulled a nearly 4.0 GPA while running a double course load in college – and once I started sharing it.

Students noticed.

Droves of them.

And then teachers noticed.

Most of the teachers that were looking out for their student’s best interest got what I was saying and supported the cause. Others… well… not everyone has the student’s best interest at heart.

Anyway…

Early on (even before Smart Student Secrets,) I started writing for average students.

I knew… I was NEVER one of the “smart kids”. I was mediocre at best. And I knew, if these strategies worked for me then they could work for just about anybody. And that’s who I wanted to connect with.

But… There was a problem…

I built an audience giving these strategies away. Sure…

And I’d get messages from them. And we’d talk. And I’d hear their stories.

I’d hear from A+ students that cut their study time by 90%.

I’d hear from B students that took their grades up to A’s.

I’d hear from teachers that were sharing my strategies with their students.

I’d hear from older students how these strategies changed their life.

I love it. I love introducing these strategies that changed my life to other people.

But there was always this… but…

What about the C students?

What about the D students?

What about the students that are currently failing?

Sure… Some would reach out.. but…

They never followed through… They’d take a small step. They’d sign up. They’d learn some killer strategies. Seeing right there how powerful they were going to be…

And then… life kicks in. They lose sight of their goals.

And it’s gone.

Forever.

Student’s came to this site to improve their life. They see the possibilities. But then… they move on.

In about 4 hours, I’m going to be introducing something – an email subscriber exclusive – that can help change that.

It’s going to make more Smart Students than at any other time in this site’s history.
