This article is my response to a recent question I received from a student struggling to introduce a more reasonably timed study routine. He’s in the unfortunate habit of studying for hours every few nights (when he can force himself to do it.) He’s a subscriber here and as I was writing his response I began to realize this might be useful for more than just him.

You can score high grades and study less than you imagine. Your mistakes in the past are just consequences of all the usual bad advice you’ve been given. You are in control of your grades.

Here is the big important point that I’m going to hide for everyone except subscribers for marketing purposes: 😛

Watch your results carefully (ignore your gut) and you’ll have nothing to worry about.

Improvement doesn’t come from doing the same thing over and over again. It comes from trying new things and watching the results.

Small distinctions create amazing lifelong results. Don’t miss out because you’re scared of a few disappointing moments.
