If you find that you can’t focus on your studies for long, you’re probably seeing the consequences in your grades.
Check out today’s video to learn how to improve concentration and study more efficiently to boost your GPA.
“Your time is the most valuable thing because it is limited.”
Too many students waste hours and hours on things that don’t really matter, like social media. You cannot get that time back!
Be conscious about where your time is going. Spend time thinking about how you can invest your time into YOUR life instead of focusing on everyone else’s.
It’s easy to feel guilty about not spending time with loved ones when you need to study or invest in yourself. Explain to your family that you’re doing what you have to in order to make them proud! It’s not that you don’t love them.
If you really want to increase focus, consider people you’re spending time with who don’t consider you. Who in your life is taking away from you instead of improving you? Why are you focusing on them?
Consider your cognitive load. What are you spending time thinking about that you can’t control? Don’t waste your brain power worrying about things you can’t change!
Focus on the NOW. Your future MCAT score won’t be what you want unless you improve your GPA now!
When you do get down to studying, don’t let yourself get distracted. Pull your willpower and focus on the task at hand. Don’t waste those precious moments letting your mind wander!
Take little steps to improve concentration. Leave your phone behind. Block social media on your computer. Turn off notifications. Don’t study in a busy coffee shop if it distracts you. Make a plan for exactly what you’re planning to study that day.
Everyone has the potential to be a great student, but it cannot happen if you’re giving away your time to people and things that don’t matter in the long run.
