Habits are more important than Goals

“How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.” – Annie Dillard

Our habits are more important than goals.
Why? Because goals don’t happen with out good habits.

We’re half way there in our 8 Week Challenge to wrap up “Your Year to Getting Registered.”

Week 5 starts today

This week we are focusing on Repetition.

But first….
Take stock of how far you have come!

If you have been following the Challenge you have:

  • A Test date or a Measurement Assessment date on your calendar (or you have requested a Petition of Eligibility)
  • You have at least 20 CEU’s
  • You took a Practice Test so you know your areas to focus on.
  • You may have hired a tutor or purchased some resources that you were needing.
  • You’ve tamed your Social Media time to better utilize your day.
  • and You’ve invited a friend or coworker to help you stay accountable and on track.

You probably have seen this multiple times before on my site:
Research.Review.Repeat

This is the part that takes are own initiative:

We can hire whoever and purchase whatever; but, if we don’t put in the time to review the material repeatedly – our momentum will come to a halt.

STUDY Tip 101Notecards
While digital resources are very helpful for studying and note cards may seem old-school….they are hands-down the most effective way for students to study and retain the information they are learning.
As tempted as you might be to view digital notecards…don’t. It’s the act of writing them out yourself that enhances the learning.

Notecards encourage recall and repetition…instead of simply staring at a passage or a concept on a page, they can actively improve your retention of the information.
You might start with digital notecards as a resource but copy them onto your own actual cards. I still have mine : )

If it’s true that it takes 21 days to form a habitlet’s start this today!
