Today’s blog is about two gals who are in one of my classes. These ladies have truly got their college act together. Let me tell you what they do:
They figured out a few semesters that they were majoring in the same thing and would be taking the same classes, so they made the commitment to take the same classes at the same time and become study buddies. This has worked out very well, since they share a common work ethic. They study hard and hold one another accountable.
They show up for class early every day, so that they can organize their study plans, solidify their assignments, and quiz each other for upcoming tests. The tests may be a couple of weeks away, but they prepare for them early. No late night cramming the night before the exam for them! They have also mapped out their future coursework and talked to the advisers about their next-step plans.
They challenge each other to get the top grade; in my class, their GPAs are .8 different. Needless to say, they are at the very top of the class. They are already discussing the courses they will take for their master’s degrees, even though they are sophomores right now. They have gotten guidance about what classes they should take at our college and which are best reserved for the future.
They know where they are going, what it takes to get there, and the time frame they need to complete their goals. When success arrives, it will not be a surprise. They have planned and prepared for it all along.
How about you? What preparation have you begun for what lies ahead?
