1 The Race to the Finish Line! It’s not winning that matters, it’s how you play the game.“It’s all about the amount of training and focus you have”Usain BoltWe all want to get to the finish line and we all want to be winners. When we can’t be the “winner”, some of us just give up. So if school has become a race that never ends or if you are unhappy about where you are placing, then let’s think about where we need to go from here. First, we have two lessons to think about. We should focus on the training because that gives us the positive end result and we should focus on how we play. Usain Bolt 100 meter and 200 meter Olympic Gold medalist and world record setter, has a plan for how to not only reach the finish line first, but by a long shot and having a tremendous amount of fun in the race.
2 Make a PlanHow does he do it? He has a training plan and he didn’t get there overnight nor from one year to the next. Just like all athletes have a training schedule, all students should have a study plan. Set up times to study, make out a schedule, take note of tips on how to study that you learn from teacher’s and observe from others AND get enough rest.
