Most students study to feel good.
Yes… I know it doesn’t seem that way when your brain is thinking “I DON’T WANT TO STUDY!”
Let me make my case and see if you agree.
Students are taught the importance of hard work through their entire life. They’re taught that working hard studying is important to their future.
They are taught grades are kind of important but they’re rarely taught grades are more important than working hard.
(Seriously, I’ve heard so many stories from students that have teachers saying, “it’s good but I know you’re capable of doing so much more so I took some points off.”)
Students are taught the results don’t matter. It’s how hard they worked. (I’ve also had an experience having a teacher say that I didn’t do well but I worked so hard that they improved my grade.)
So… instead of students focusing on actually learning information, students focus on “working hard” while results are only a minor factor. If they sat down and learned everything they needed in ten minutes then they’d feel guilty (even if they did score well on the test.)
Students procrastinate studying because it helps them build that illusion of working hard.
Instead of focusing on results they end up focusing on finding a way to make themselves feel good. Studying a long session may not feel good in the instant and it may not produce dramatic results but they’ll feel good about it and they certainly won’t feel bad about it.
Getting good grades is dramatically easier than most students understand because they’re too distracted trying to make themselves feel good to see it.
Studying isn’t supposed to make you feel good in the moment. It’s supposed to be short term discomfort in exchange for long term gains (grades, degrees, jobs, intelligence, and money.) As soon as you stop looking for that short term high you can start to really appreciate the long term gains.
A B&C Students Guide To Mercilessly Crushing A Students At Their Own Game (While Laughing Your Way Towards The Ivy-League)
Are you smart but getting meh grades?
The smartest students are often the ones the school system leaves behind. It’s easy to motivate a half-wit (or even almost-wit – like a horse with a carrot dangled in it’s face to get it running. Giddy-up horsey!
You would never fall for that, right? Then this is for you.
It’s easy to procrastinate when you’re getting a raw deal. That’s the smart thing to do.
Academics is a game – and its prizes are good. Really good! There is more to the story than that though. What do you have to do to get that prize? And that matters even more than the prize. Study 18 hours a day for straight-A’s and a high-paying job someday in the distant future? Ughhh… Not me. That’s for sure.
I scored near the top of my college Engineering class while studying less than 15 minutes a morning. And seriously, I don’t sound like a super genius, do I?
Hint: I had barely scraped a 1.0 GPA in high school and I wasn’t skipping and having fun with friends either – I was… dare I say… trying my best.
Big Tip: trying doesn’t matter unless you’re experimenting or already using an effective strategy. Trying without an effective strategies is a waste that can plop your grades in the stinker. First step – STOP TRYING with ineffective strategies.
You got that?
Look… I’m a bit crazy. I get it. I’ve read hundreds of books on grades, learning, and memory. I spent sleepless nights studying obscure academic journals. I swear, I even read the book “How To Read A Book” and didn’t have to drink alcohol to do it!
WHY DO I DO THIS TO MYSELF!?
You wanna’ know why?
Don’t tell anyone but… I care. I was emotionally crippled by the school system. I had heartless, lazy, and downright mean teachers (and a couple good ones that couldn’t help.) It took years for me to untangle their mess…
And I went to college and beat them at their own wretched game. Top scores. Easy studying. Time to make friends and impress the ladies. (You know… the important stuff!)
But I know… I wasn’t alone and I know there are others facing similar and worse challenges than I did. And I may be out of the warzone now but I can’t in good conscience leave you behind without my arsenal.
That’s why a decade ago I founded Smart Student Secrets and got link backs from LifeHack, HuffPo, and good college professors with names I can’t pronounce from all over the world that see these strategies crushing every day. But forget about them… the emails I get from grateful students… that’s the stuff a good life is made of.
My newest book is, in my opinion, the best book ever written for students that want to absolutely crush the academic game.
It gets you to focus your energy on the most important aspects of grades – giving you leverage on the system.
It shows you the big painful studying, you’re not benefiting from – that you thankfully get to stop today and forever.
It takes the latest in academic research on memory and puts into your hands, the exact memorization strategies that a Purdue Professor proved can let someone memorize 2.35 things for every one they’re memorizing now.
And this isn’t about “working harder” – and it’s not about “working smarter” either. (I cringe every time I read that phrase.)
It’s about working only when it matters most and creating the habit of motivated and effective learning.
