Habits for College Admission and Beyond
The biggest difference between those who want to succeed, and those who do succeed, is not intention, nor access to information, but the ability to do what we know we should do. Doing is hard. Ask any adult who has been trying to get on a fitness routine. However, here are our 20 minute habits that we find help many students:
Identify one thing that will significantly improve your chances of admission, if you work on it for just 20 minutes every day. Now, put a reminder on your phone, and just think about that (difference you can make) every day.
Take life 20 minutes at a time, and focus on whatever you are doing now. If you are on a break, do it away from all that homework that is due. If you are doing homework, turn your phone off.
If you tend to lose track of time, use a timer to make yourself stop in 20 minutes, take stock, and then proceed.
- Whenever you do any of the above, take a mental bow, and let that good feeling wash over you
