Are you an A or B student that wants more time to enjoy life while scoring top-of-the class high – even if you’re a bad test taker?

I knew a kid that could regularly “get away” with being rude to his teachers.

(Keep in mind. From what I’ve learned from you guys, this isn’t always useful in all cultures.)

Every single time one of his friends walked into the classroom…

He would get completely distracted and talk to his friend for like 10 seconds…

Then the teacher would interrupt him…

Then he’d close his mouth and offer some kind of a hand signal showing he was sorry.

I saw him do this 3 or 4 times in a single class. And honestly, I don’t think the teacher did anything but smile and roll her eyes when he did this.

Not every kid could get away with this…

How To Kick-Ass In Class goes into those things you shouldn’t be doing. It also goes into the handful of things you should be doing. (The 15MSS is best thought of as a via negativa solution. Arguably, it’s not what you do that matters. It’s what the 15MSS forces you to stop doing. When you stop it, your brain kicks in and does what it does naturally and almost automatically.)

tl;dr

Be yourself. Acting is for professionals. Do it wrong and you’ll screw yourself more than you could possibly help yourself.

P.S.

Last night, I was prompted to think about this by some reader questions. This morning at 5 AM… I woke up after having a dream about this kid I haven’t thought of in years… Then I just had to write this. That means it’s either inspired or completely insane. 😀

When Being Rude Is Better Than Being Polite

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.
