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.
MAYBE THEY WON’T NOTICE…
I’m not going to get in trouble again, am I?
Here is the story:
I’m the originator of the 15 Minute Study Strategy – proving you only need 15 minutes of studying each night to academically dominate MOST academic institutions. You may have heard someone talking about it – and it’s easy to be skeptical I get.
It’s a crazy fact that most academics don’t want you to know. And for good reason…
This strategy completely obliterates their systems.
Student’s are supposed to struggle through school. School starts as a training/education tool (around gradeschool.)
As you grow up, it becomes a weeding out mechanism. It’s a system that rewards people for: obedience, hours of work, and unhappy type a’s.
And it’s meant to punish students that are: intellectually curious, motivated, and genuinely smart people.
My strategies BLOWS everything they built apart and it rewards students for smart actions.
It’s not the hours invested as much as it’s the things you do. If you do these things – you’ll get killer grades.
(And that’s why they hate me. Its proves everything they’re doing is wrong – and it forces them to address the truth… Or continue to pretend otherwise despite the overwhelming and increasingly humiliating evidence.)
Are you ready for this?
Let me send you some emails – it’s important we take this one step at a time.
