Planning is a very important aspect of life that must not be handled with levity. Planning your academic life is one of the sure ways of achieving success. It involves setting a goal, strategizing and taking necessary actions to attain the goal.
If your goal is to have distinctions in all your subjects or courses, as the case may be, that is one aspect of planning. If activities or strategies for achieving the goal are not outlined and worked on, it will end up being a wishful thinking.
DO NOT MISS CLASSES
It is very important to always attend classes as some of the things a teacher says in the class may not be in the textbook you have. Attending classes gives you ample opportunity to ask questions and learn from your fellow students. It also saves you the time of copying notes of classes you have missed.
DEVELOP A READING CULTURE
Ensure you go through your notes before you go to bed and read related text(s) that will help you gain a better understanding of the topic you were taught. Draw a reading timetable and ensure you keep to the time you have set. If you observe the reading time over and over, your body system will get conditioned to it.
CULTIVATE RELATIONSHIPS FOR SUCCESS
The friends you keep in school will make or mar your academic success. If you want to be an excellent student, keep friends who have the same aspiration as you. Such friends will propel you to stay with your dream. They will add value to your life. Unserious friends will cause distraction and keeping them could lead to the abandonment of your dream.
KEEP YOUR MIND FREE AND UNCLUTTERED
You need to have a free mind so that you can be focused on your academics. Relationship with the opposite sex is not what you should bug your life with now, there is plenty of time for that. But it is important you lay a good foundation for yourself so that you can achieve your planned success.
You need a mentor you can commit your dream to. You will be accountable to this mentor and he/she will motivate you to achieve your set goal(s). Never choose a mentor who does not understand your dream or who wants to mould you to suit his/her own aspirations. A mentor will guide you to succeed where he/she has succeeded and keep you from repeating his/her mistakes.
EMBRACE THE GOD FACTOR
Never underestimate the God factor. Without Him it is impossible to achieve success. You need to make out time to pray and study the Word of God, so that you can achieve good success. Talk to Him about difficulties you (may) face in your academics and other areas of your life.
HAVE A POSITIVE MINDSET
Are you having difficulties in any of your subjects? Challenge yourself, maintain a positive mindset and open your mind to learning the subject(s). Do not allow what others have said about that subject to hinder you from putting up an effort to overcome the challenge. Meet someone who is more knowledgeable in the subject and can teach you. To overcome the challenge, it is important to be positively minded and work hard at it.
Follow the above tips and achieve success. Be sure to thank God for your success and then set new goals for yourself, after you have attained the former one(s)
