        Accelerate Your Future

        9/5/2013
        Contributed by National Officers

        Education is the best investment an individual can make.  Now that the school year has started, everything before you can seem intimidating.  You are building the foundation to your future by deciding what you want to do, who you want to be, and where you are going to begin.  You can improve your professional abilities and confidence by starting the school year off on the right foot.

        Set realistic goals for yourself.  If you were a C+ student last year, aim to make the B honor roll this semester.  Stay focused on your goals, think about the goals you have set every time you have homework and make your goals a part of your everyday life.  Every day counts when it comes to being successful in school.

        Stay organized.   Use a planner and overcome procrastination.  Take care of assignments, homework, papers, and projects on time and early, if possible.  Reward yourself when you complete a task ahead of schedule.

        Develop good study habits.  This can be as simple as devoting time to study in a quiet location on a routine basis every day, your brain responds positively to repetition.  Don’t wait until the last minute to study and work on assignments, get them done early and always give yourself more time than you think you will need to get homework done.

        Keep a positive attitude and make friends with others who are on their way to being the best they can be.  Surround yourself with constructive people that want to be successful in school.  Friends with a great outlook will tend to support one another in their daily endeavors.

        How Are You Going to Accelerate Your Future?

         

        Best of Luck in Your Academic Studies,
