Many students look at school and education as if it’s a temporary evil.

With that in mind, they do things that they know are unsustainable because they know it won’t last forever. They know they can’t study two hours a night for the rest of their life but they’re convinced that when school stops, they’re going to be able to stop putting in that extra time.

Here’s one problem: Those same people that are willing to put off their life repeatedly through school with excessive studying end up getting in the real world with the same attitude.

They look at their job and think, “I’m going to retire someday. It may suck to work all this extra time now but it’s not going to last forever.” They get to the end of their life without even living it. They may comfort themselves with tv and food during their free time but they’re miserable.

Of course, that’s not the only direction good students go. Some actually end up stopping their studying and improvement completely. They graduate and decide their absolutely done. They’ve learned just about everything they’re going to learn (short of possibly a few required continuing education courses.) Eventually the world bites them in the ass for this decision.

It’s impossible to keep a good job these days without a constant improvement of your skills. More and more jobs are becoming international. Somewhere in the world someone is willing to do what you do for less money (probably even better than you.) As soon as your employer figures out who that person is and how to interact with them, you’re going to end up looking for the next employer that can’t find that cheaper guy. It will end up as another temporary gig.

People that are constantly improving are hard to replace. It’s easy to find a person with a skill. Schools can teach skills. What is hard to find is an employee that becomes more valuable the longer they’re employed.

Hell… it’s hard to find a friend like that.

It is also hard to find a person motivated enough to actually continue growing into a better individual. These are all hard to find in people (not only employees.)

The key to becoming dedicated to never ending improvement is to give up on the unsustainability and focus on sustainability. Can you study 2 hours a night for the rest of your life? No? Then stop.

How much could you study daily for the rest of your life without ever doubting your ability to follow through. Start there. (That number can increase in the future when you grow into a stronger person.)

Never-Ending Improvement

It’s not HOW MUCH you study.

It’s HOW you study.

 

The human brain has billions of neurons perfectly structured to store and transmit data about the world around you.

Any idiot can bang around with a textbook for dozens of hours to score high…

But seriously…

That sucks.

Let me show you the better way.

    This is such a vicious cycle; the I’ll be out of school, university and eventually, retire. It’s actually sad to see how lives can so easily revolve around achieving something but there isn’t an actual end to it. So many people completely miss so many other opportunities because studying only has extremes, there is no moderation.
    Another great article, thanks!
