Hi!

Only $4.99  and you only pay it if you see the results you’re looking for – otherwise I walk the plank matey!

It’s a matter of pleasing yourself. It has nothing to do with doing your best.

Doing your best is pushing yourself to your limits. It’s stressful. It’s difficult. It’s the kind of thing that, if you do every minute of every day, you’ll end up with a worse and worse best as time goes on. The stress will just build up and you’ll end up with mediocre being the best you can do on a daily basis.

You don’t need to “do your best” to be successful in school. If you do a sufficient job and are of average intelligence then you’ll end up with an above average grade.

Quite frankly, most of the people that say they’re doing their best are just making excuses for themselves.

“Well… I did my best,” they’ll tell you.

Then you might ask them, “so you studied a lot for the test?”

“Well… Yea… the night before I pulled an all-nighter.”

Then, of course, you find out that the all-nighter was the complete amount of time they spend studying. They now feel comfortable saying that they “did their best” while ignoring the weeks or months before that they could have spent actually doing something that would dramatically improved their grade.

Doing your best on the night before the test shouldn’t excuse you from your failures. Heck, if you “do your best” on your test but didn’t put 10 seconds into preparing for the test then you shouldn’t go on excusing your bad results. If you’re going to claim you’re “doing you best” you should at least put a few weeks of perspective on the situation.

Doing your best isn’t necessary if you’re doing it right. For more information on this you might want to read Why Bad Students (Sometimes) Make The Best Students.

If you study a few minutes a night then you’ll usually end up well ahead of the “do their best” last minute crowd. You don’t even have to be consistently doing your best. If you show up and are able to muster the minimum amount of focus then you’ll still be crushing them.

Don’t think that you need a massive effort to get massive grades. More important, don’t use “doing your best” to forgive yourself for being too short-sighted to prepare.

Do you want to know how to study in less than 15 minutes a night? That’s what this blog is all about. Be sure to check out the archives and follow along. Also, be sure to read the books in the sidebar to learn more.

Don’t Do Your Best For Class

How You Will Get Straight-A’s – Impress Teachers – And Having People Beg You To Tutor Them (And It Will Be Easier Than What You’re Doing Now)

Ever met a dope that still scored higher than you?

I know I did. And, believe it or not, it’s more common than you think.

Despite what you have been told, hard-work and intelligence are not the keys to good grades. In a study by Karpicke of Purdue University and Roediger, III of Washington University showed the right strategy can get you remembering 2.35 things for every minute of focused studying you’re doing now.

If you study wrong, you could be plummeting your grade by 67% (or more if you’re using a worse than normal strategy.) And many of the wrong strategies are one’s you’ve been taught to do your whole life!

Once I discovered this for myself, my whole world changed. I got C’s and D’s in highschool. In college, I was near the top of my class for my Engineering degree. Freshman year in college, I knew I had to spread the word.

I worked with one student (D.L, I’ll call him for soon-to-be obvious reasons.) He was going back to college after getting out of prison on a drug charge. He was retaking his English class – with the same teacher. A couple weeks into the semester, the professor pulled him aside and asked him, “how the hell some prison teacher could make him that much better – that fast?”

It wasn’t the teacher.

It makes sense the teacher wondered that. The changes that can take place when you change strategies are astounding.

Every minute you study ineffectively is wasted. Your grades may go up a little but it’s a losing battle. Effective studying skyrockets your scores faster – giving you more time to:

  • Learn more than you ever imagined
  • Improve your health, well-being, and non-academic life
  • Enjoy your time the way you want to

My book How To Study Happier teaches this strategy that let students memorize 2.35 things for every one they would normally memorize. Plus, it gives you dozens of other strategies and stories that can put you on the path to academic enjoyment – instead of just surviving. (And remember, no matter where you are in your journey, it just gets harder from here. Be prepared!)

All my books come with a 100% money-back guarantee – just send an email and my people will refund it – no questions asked.

I want to help you. Put it on me to prove it. Please give me that chance.

Last thing, inflation is making it hard for me to keep prices where they are. Server costs are going up and prices on my books may go up as soon as next week (as of the day of writing this.) So please act now. When these prices go up, there will be no exceptions made.

Right now, click the link, buy now, fill in the boxes, and get an instant download for you to have when you’re ready- while the price is holding.

Get your copy of my book about How To Get Happier Straight A’s.

It only costs $4.99 (and if these strategies don’t work like magic like it has for thousands of other students then you can get a full refund.)

    Smart work is more important than hard work. That’s what I believe. I know many students who pull an all-nighter and end up with spoiling their exams. Sleep is the most important thing you need to get before an exam. The better you sleep, the better you tend to remember. Your brain will function more. 🙂

    You really have to ask yourself sometimes, am I doing my best? It can be a big wake-up call. Thinking back over my school days, doing the extra 15 minutes a night suggested study probably would have made a huge difference in my grades. Who has a time machine? haha
