One thing I’m going to avoid as we continue is to be stating facts without actually implementing them and I’ll need your co-operation in order to actually achieve that. Now that we’ve established what academic success is all about, let’s get down to the real stuff and the first I’ll like us to discuss about is “How often do you read?”
Yes, you heard me right. How often do you read? Aside examination periods, do you even read at all? It is a proven fact that whatever is read under less pressure tends to stick to the brain and eventually becomes a part of you. Do you know it’s easier to read little by little in parts thereby building a solid foundation than trying to read a whole textbook under so much pressure in so little time? I’m always very concerned with the foundation in everything, because with a strong foundation, the sky will be your starting point.
Let’s take this task together. Pick a book of interest to you and sit down to read it for an hour. It could be in the morning, afternoon or night but just make a determined decision to read for one hour. You could start with that book you’ve always wanted to read but kept postponing it or just pick a subject or course of interest to you. When you begin, it might seem like it’s taking forever for one hour to end but don’t worry, just continue until the time is actually over.
I’d love to hear your comments so please feel free to drop them. Thank you for reading!
