Study Skills

Take Control of Your Life

Shorten your study time as much as possible.

Power up your brain. Have a more fulfilling life.

Here are some suggestions.

Study Smarter, Not Harder

Many people believe that to get better marks they have to work harder and devote longer hours to study. Unfortunately, >this approach can lead to fatigue, stress, and burnout, which can actually interfere with learning. Having fun, exercising, and socializing with friends and loved ones is rejuvenating.

You learn more when you are happy, think clearly and work efficiently.

Schedule your day around outcomes.

Focus on accomplishing things instead of doing things.

Replace your "to do" list with a "goals" list. Each day decide what needs to get accomplished, breaking down long projects into bite-sized pieces. Prioritize each outcome according to how much long term benefit you get from accomplishing them.

One of your highest priority goals is to rejuvenate yourself. Work long enough to secure the benefits you need - no more, no less. Working longer hours for the sake of working is counter-productive (see above); working less doesn't get you what you need.

Learn to say "No."

Your needs are as worthwhile as someone else's - maybe even more worthwhile. Focus your talents and resources on obtaining your long term benefits. Avoid tasks or "favors" that benefit others but not you.

Say "Good-bye" to disruptions and distractions.

Let voice mail phone calls.

Delete cutesy but time-wasting forwarded emails without reading them.

Require others to conform to your schedule.

Before solving a problem ask:

1. Whose problem is it?

2. What is it worth (to them and to you) to solve it?

3. What would it take to solve it?

4. Given your answers to (2) and (3), is the problem worth solving?

Outsource and delegate.

Everyone has strengths and weaknesses. Leverage others' time and talent particularly when they can achieve an outcome more quickly or cheaply than you can.
