I used to be the same as your friend. I have several tips for you. One, who use to enjoy a lot has actually tuned their brain before you. Maybe from an early age, their atmospheric makes them catch something faster. And, it only once, and it goes forever, because the smartest guy is he who works consistently, and as a result, 15minutes a day for them is already enough. What I want to emphasize is tuning your brain early. If you are in your school/semester break, starts learning earlier, and try to finish all out. Work forward. Then, once your brain tuned, you are all right for all tasks in front, you will never have to tune it twice unless you take a long break. Consistent is my beloved recipe.

Get started by simplify your thought and throwing out all the obstacles one by one. Many people cannot get started just because they think complicated enough. Simplify your thoughts. Delete one by one non-important stuffs, like excessive usage of internet, television etc.

Hey why not do both. Ths can be done only requires a littlebit of planning. Srudent life is most precious you can't get back the lost moments. Tip 1. Have set schedules to socialize & have fun. Tip 2. Practice speed reading, Lot of speed reading downloads are available free in the net. Tip 3. Utilize travel time. Read loudly & record yourself . Use these lessons during your travel time instead of listening to music. all the best

Hello harsha27 I have all the comments of mylottians who have expressed their views on the subject. I think it is common problem for maximum number of students to whom I have seen in my student life.I have seen number of studious students who are really worked hard but not get good result or marks in exam. on the other hand students who are doing less labour and always in free or relax mood get good marks in comparison to labourious students . This is due to mental ability and brain power how to catch the subject. Some students are lagging this brain power and memory as a result of which their labour does not yield good result. It is some how related to heredity or gene. Memory power can be improved by doing meditation & yoga. pkc3000

I think basically you got to find the right and appropriate way for yourself to learn effectively. Like when you do a math problem you have to first study carefully about one concept and how this concept is being used in those questions. You have to use your thoughts to relate thoses concepts to the questions, which means if you clearly know the basic concept, and do as many questions as you can, you will get use to it because you've done practice lots of times. At that level you would find enjoyment. It always like no matter which course you learn, you have to be patience about the learning process. Because it usually takes your everyday time to learn different things. It's really easy to get frustrated because learning isn't fun for some of us. So you may think about your future; if you don't go to school and learn, you won't be able to have a good job which relate to a nice fortune of life.

You don't like this course because it's not your interest. Do you know how many people live just like you on earth? Maybe 1 million. We all have to do something we don't really interest in. However, it's up to you to decide whether you want to do it for your future. Since you've already studied this course, why not just give it a try and be patience when you study.

to me, student life meant to be hard. you should study hard and know the material for your courses (career). im in college, i study hard, because i paid the money and i want to pass and get a job. i enjoy my life on the week end. for few hours, that's it.

yes it is a little bit of hardwork with a lot of fun filled and doing every hard work in a good and a positive manner and also if we are doing hard work at some point of time in our life then we will also get the sweet fruit of it in our lifetime only and only in this age we get to date some beautiful girls and after marriage it would sound wierd and very insultful if we are caught dating so teenage and study age rocks dude dont worry take your education as a part of your good life not as a burden happy posting and lets be friends

student age is not only for enjoyment in my point of view we need to enjoy and we need to learn new things so we need to share good things to our friends so we need to have good ideas for studies as well as life so that it leads good platform in our life so we may not get any problems in our life.

It's all about being able to manage your time and being able to prioritize. Learn to say "no" to certain distractions in your studies. Develop a study habit that will solve your problem. Do not make your friend as a "standard or basis of your capability". Since you have identified your problem. I want you to write it down and write down all your "subjects", evaluate your performance by describing your thoughts in which you have failed in that area then on the other side or column, think of a solution that is "realistic" for you to work on during the rest of the semester. Do you need extra reading time? Make a schedule. Do you need a tutor? Arrange for it, or ask your friend to help you with it. Observe for some habits that can be helpful for you to develop your own efficiency. Do it in a week. If you may not see a visible outcome, try again and work harder. In theory, it takes about 21-30 days for a person to develop a new habit so why wait for that? It will come naturally if you really focus your mind into it. Visualize yourself at work and you are working in progress. Make a motto which you would recite in a day like, "I will hit a high mark!". Shout it out until it resonates to your soul.
