Kay and I were talking the other day and she was discussing an email exchange she was having with a student. She wanted to figure out how to help this student but she wanted to see what I was thinking about it…

I’ll call the student J…

J was saying something like:

“I want to study better but I don’t want to use active recall or flashcards…”

That’s tough for a study “gooroo” like myself to listen to because active recall is kind of like my superpower.

And J doesn’t like it. I get that… I didn’t always love it…

I wrote a whole book on the subject…

101 Strategies To Improve Your Grades Without Studying More

This is an ebook that’s been downloaded tens of thousands of times. I literally have emails in my inbox from readers telling me this book changed their life. I guess it’s easy to get caught up thinking there is only 1 way to do something.

There is a world of possibilities. Don’t miss out.

Since J gave me this helpful reminder that I lose focus on the real goals sometimes too, here is a coupon that will get you J’s Super Special Discount until Friday: EXPIRED

How To Boost Grades Without Studying

Maybe She Won’t Notice

D’s eyes were watering at the score on the screen.

He was thinking, “Is this what I am now?”

The score was low. Lower than he liked to think about – and way lower than he used to get.

He was just hoping that his mother wouldn’t ask. He always hated telling her and it killed him worse to lie about it. It’s his mother… she wants what’s best for him and he knew he was screwing it up.

Staring at the score it hit him…

This has to change. On the next test, coming up in 3 weeks, he was going to make up for it. He was going to score high.

So… he studied. He studied for hours that night. He studied until his eyes were closing involuntarily.

The next day… he studied for hours.

And the day after that… he did it again.

But the day after that – his best friend was going through a bit of a crisis. So… he took the day off studying. I mean, no one needs to study hundreds of hours for a test, and he was doing well so far.

But the next day… he was exhausted. And, you know, exhausted studying doesn’t work. So he missed that day to.

The day after, he squeezed in some studying.

And… I think you know how this story goes…

The night before the test, he’s staring down at his study guide and cursing to himself.

It happened… again…

So…

That night he buckled down and studied almost all night. (Until he virtually crashed at 3 am.) Every time he started dozing off earlier he’d get a snack or drink and keep on plugging. He worked. And he worked hard.

He even had moments where it felt like he was running better than ever. He felt like he was going to pull it off.

The test was the next afternoon.

And I’d like to say he knocked it out of the park and D saved himself with his last ditch effort to save his grade but…

I can’t say that.

Sure… D didn’t bomb completely.

But when he was staring down at his score… he was tearing up again. And he still was hoping that his mother wouldn’t ask him about it…

It’s not a number on a piece of paper.

I know… it can help reduce your stress to think that way, and there is a place for that.

But your future, your position in the world, is partially decided by these numbers on these papers. We all know it.

We all want to put ourselves in the best position possible – and these scores can do that for us.

And D knew it.

If you know it then join us.

P.S.

D is kicking butt it this semester – more importantly, he’s doing it without procrastination rearing its ugly head.
