This is something that would have made me a successful math student waaay faster.
I wasn’t a math guy in high school. My math score was only as high as I could count. Low I tell you. LOWWW. (Yes… that is partially a joke. But it was pretty embarrassing some semesters.)
Eventually, mostly through stubbornly difficult work, I was able to improve the grade.
And naturally, years later, when I know longer needed to be so skilled in math… I learned how to get really good at math. After learning it, I was able to train myself into feeling more like I had a natural gift for mathematics.
And that’s why I dare call it – a weapon of math destruction.
This is dedicated to all you technical students reading Smart Student Secrets. Active recall isn’t just for memorizing long lists anymore.
And a special thanks to Eduardo for the idea of this article. This doesn’t hit every point Eduardo recommended but I didn’t want to create a 2 hour read. I’m going to add more over the next few weeks.
I’d love to hear what you all think!
The Secret To Success
I’ve worked with students for over a decade now –
There is a thing that all successful students (and I suspect all successful people at anything) have in common…
It’s this thing that can come off as crazy – wrong-headed – almost embarrassing.
But those of us that see it and understand it know –
It’s not embarrassing. It’s not wrong-headed. And it’s not crazy. It’s actually one of the most powerful forces in the world.
When I see someone that understands and applies this, I know they’re a person I can trust to get something done. It’s like a secret handshake. It’s like our personal secret conspiracy we’re using to take over the world. And most people just dismiss it.
In fact, I can tell you right now and 95% of you are going to dismiss it.
And only 5% of you will do it.
The secret: Do it. If it works, keep doing it. If it doesn’t, do something else.
If you’re ready to do it – to succeed extraordinarily in academics and life then let me send you the details by putting in your email below and checking the box.
Or you can let that doubt take over. That’s your business.
