Simple Hacks to be a Cut above Others!
Wow, student life is tough isn’t it? With the competition involved, whenever you think you are on par with others, your friend ends up having one skill more than you or scoring a few extra points more than you.
But he said that he did not study! Must have scored by chance. The fact is that all the students are a part of a race. It is brutal out there, and you have got to be good, if not the best, to stay in the race.
Is it that hard? Not really, but simple yet difficult. Simple because the things you must do to be ahead of others are not that big of a deal. Difficult, because despite its simplicity most end up not doing it, therefore the reason of them being behind.
What do you have to do?
One of the most important things during your final years of school is your routine or your habits. You must have heard this phrase, end number of times (habits can make a person or break a person).
It cannot get more practical than this. What you become or do, is a result of your habits. A result of what you have been doing for the past days, weeks, or months that has led to this moment.
So a simple trick to get ahead of others is to do what they don’t. Just analyze what are those few habits that can put you ahead and simply start practicing them. Confused about what to start with? Read the next para.
This is how you start
With the amount of exposure, students have today, there is something that must be safeguarded at all times.
It is one of the most important tools in your arsenal and something which you do not want to end up losing. The Brain or your mind. You have got to be careful of what you put in it.
How much information do you consume, in what context, and how is it impacting you? All these matters. Now, if all you have in your mind is why Sheldon does love his spot so much, then sorry you cannot do well.
Hacks to stay ahead of others
Happy now? Finally, the part for which you had to read all of that. So, pay attention now. Here are a few common hacks that are bound to put you ahead of others:
A. Meditation/Breathing Exercise
Remember the simple yet difficult point we talked about, we hope you can relate to it now. Meditation is a highly underrated skill. Practicing it for just a few minutes daily will benefit you for the rest of your life.
See, when you have to safeguard something you have to make it as strong as possible. In this case, this is the strength and the shield for your mind. Eventually, a healthy mind leads to a healthy body.
Consistency is another aspect that is highly required for exceptional performance. Yes, you were able to score 75 on the previous test, by pulling a few all-nighters. But just think about it, if a few all-nighters could do this, what a few weeks of preparation could have done.
Saved you time, and energy and you would have probably ended up scoring better. Being consistent with yourself and your studies, you are building up a strong foundation for yourself, which most likely would not crumble when exams are on your head.
The third one is personally our favorite. When you came on to this blog, you came with clarity of receiving what the blog promises, right? Similarly, this trait is the key to putting you in a better place than you are now.
When you are clear in your mind about what needs to be done, and how it needs to be done, you have solved 75% of your problems. The next step is to eventually do it in the best way possible.
