HOW TO WORK SMARTER NOT HARDER!

Working smart can save you a lot of time and energy. When i was in high school i could see some of my classmates work too hard. They woke up very early and went to bed very late. I woke up later and went to bed earlier and still got better grades than them. So what’s the secret?

1. PRIORITIZE

Set your priorities straight. Make a list of things to accomplish before the end of the day. The following list is also called the priority matrix. Follow strictly in the following order;

A. Important and urgent

Do these tasks first. And try as much as possible to minimize such tasks. These tasks tend to have a lot of pressure and are of a stressful nature.

B. Important and not urgent

Do these tasks next to avoid them getting into the important and urgent section. This takes a lot of pressure off, prevents stress that would be encountered by procrastination and last minute work. This also prevents low performance due to the last minute rush.

C. Not important and urgent

Put these 3rd in your list mostly to protect your time. For example if a friend wants to see you urgently but the reason is not important, instead of going to see them in person you can call them and save some time.

D. Not important and not urgent

If it is possible eliminate the tasks on this list as they are serious time wasters. If it is not possible, you can delegate them or minimize the time you spend on them

You can use the priority matrix to work on your homework as well as your revision. It will help you spend less time and still come out on top.

2. LEARN TO SAY NO

Learn to say no where necessary. You need to understand that it is not possible to please everybody. Sometimes you have to say no to time wasting activities in order to accomplish your goal.

3.  AVOID MULTI-TASKING

When you multitask you get less done. You need to focus on a task at a time, give it your best then move to the next one. Set a time limit to complete each set task and see to it that it is complete and done to the best of your ability.

There is a saying that goes, if you don’t have time to do it right then you don’t have time to it wrong.

4. AVOID PROCRASTINATION

As i have mentioned in the priority matrix, if a task is to be done then do it immediately. Avoid postponing to avoid last minute stress.

5. GET ENOUGH SLEEP. 

Sleep is very important. Make sure you have at least seven hours of sleep each night. You want to start your day on a high note and not have to sleep in the middle of the day, during class time or work time.

This improves your efficiency. You are able to put your whole mind into your work hence spend less time on it.

HOW TO BUILD SELF-CONFIDENCE

1. SURROUND YOURSELF WITH CONFIDENT PEOPLE

You are more likely to be confident if your friends are confident. Your friends more often than not reflect who you are. If you want to believe in yourself, which is very important, surround yourself with people who believe in themselves and chances are you will believe in yourself too.

2. GET OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE

Challenge yourself by trying new unfamiliar things. Try a new hobby, change your circle of friends. Your current friends might be the reason you are stuck in life. They may be the reason for your low self-esteem.

Remember if you want something you’ve never had, you’ve got to do something you’ve never done. Every new thing seems hard in the beginning, but take it step by step and you will be surprised at how far you can go. Get out of your comfort zone!

3. LEARN TO COMPLIMENT YOURSELF

Look in the mirror everyday and say five good things about yourself. For example, i am beautiful/handsome, I am an achiever, I am confident, I am a bright student, I am hardworking, I am kind-hearted, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Slowly all these things will manifest in your life and you will see your life changing for the better.

If you have been telling yourself negative things then stop today because you are beautifully and wonderfully made no matter what others say. God made you that way for a reason so be proud of yourself and believe in yourself because if you can believe it then you can become it!

4. READ INSPIRATIONAL BOOKS

Let what you read help you get there. If you are not a novel fan then you can watch inspirational documentaries. Feed your mind with positive things and positivity will manifest in your life.

Personally i am a huge fan of inspirational books. They  make you see life in a whole different way. As you learn from peoples experiences you believe more in your ability to achieve great things.

Self- confidence is what separates those who make it in this life from those who don’t. You learn to stand your ground no matter what others say. If you lack confidence you will be swayed easily hence it will be very difficult to achieve your goals in this life.

5. VOLUNTEER

Volunteer to help out in church or any organisation. In this way you will meet new people who will push you to open up. You may find yourself working in a group or addressing a group.

Your confidence will grow more when you are working with new people, listening to new ideas and in that way you will be expected to contribute new ideas as well. That way you will be pushing yourself to a new level of confidence.

6. PREPARE

Prepare yourself. If you have an exam prepare in advance, if you have to speak publicly then prepare yourself. Preparation builds confidence. It will be difficult to walk in an exam room and be confident in yourself if you did not study. In the same way it will be difficult to give a speech if you did not prepare yourself adequately.

Self confidence takes the place of panic in any situation and panic is mostly brought about by the fear of inadequacy. Self confidence is saying, i have nothing to be afraid of, i am well prepared, i am well equipped and ready to conquer.

7. PRAY

Most importantly pray about it. I believe that no goal is too big or too small to include God. If you want to be more confident, you need to go to God first and ask Him to help you. He will bring people into your life to guide you in that direction.

May you grow to be more and more confident each day.

HOW TO MAINTAIN A POSITIVE ATTITUDE IN THE FACE OF ADVERSITY

1. DON’T PANIC! STAY CALM

 Most times we panic when we are faced with challenges. I remember in school every time before an exam the invigillator would remind us not to panic. I now know that panicking can confuse you and make you forget your ideal goal, plans to accomplish those goals and completely block your thinking hence leading to failure.

Remind yourself to stay calm especially now that teachers are on strike. You will realise that you can accomplish more in personal revision when you are calm compared to when you are in panic mode. Also staying in a calm environment enhances peace of mind and you can accomplish a lot with a peaceful mindset.

2. LISTEN TO YOUR INNER VOICE

 When you don’t know what to do, listen to that voice deep down your spirit. Your intuition. That’s where God dwells.  In your spirit. Most of us like ignoring that voice but I have learnt that every time we ignore that voice, we get into trouble. The voice that says you should not be watching T.V right now but studying. That voice keeps us on the right track so don’t ignore it.

3. FOCUS ON YOUR GOAL

 Keep reminding yourself what your goals are. As a student why are you in school in the first place? Am sure it’s not because everyone else is going. That one reason that makes you go to school every term.

What would you like to accomplish in life? Believe that you can accomplish it, Feel yourself becoming it. The Doctor, Teacher, Musician, Business person that you want to be, feel yourself dressing in those nice suits going to work, driving that big car, performing for that big crowd. Use that to give you the motivation you need to get there someday.

4. BLOCK OUT ANY NEGATIVITY

Some people will try to convince you that your dreams are too unrealistic.  They will try to pull you down. Don’t let them! There is a reason why God put that dream in your heart and it is possible to achieve it. Ignore the naysayers. Stay away from negative people and surround yourself with positive people. As the saying  goes , show me your friends and I will tell you the kind of person you are. Very true.

Surround yourself with negative people and negativity will slowly become part of you. Surround yourself with people who have something good to offer, people who have accomplished something in life and you are surely on your road to success.

5. SUMMON POSITIVITY

 Optimists are not always born, sometimes they are made. Having a positive attitude in life is not always easy  as you can find sometimes negative thoughts creep in and its easy to listen to that voice that tells you, It’s impossible to pass now that the teachers are on strike, the time left is not enough to cover the syllabus.

Be careful when those thoughts come and be aware of them. Delete each negative thought that comes to your mind the same way you delete messages on the phone or computer then replace those thoughts with positive thoughts.

For example: I cannot cover the remaining biology syllabus. It’s too wide. Click delete and replace that thought with, I can accomplish anything I put my mind to. Make that a habit and as they say habit is second nature. A Positive attitude will be a part of you and you will be an optimist all the days of your life.

6. KEEP DOING YOUR BEST

Don’t give up. It doesn’t matter what the circumstances are. The problem with giving up is that if you give up once, it will be easier to give up next time hence you will end up forming a pattern of giving up.  It will become a habit and that habit will turn you into a failure.

Keep doing your best. Study hard. Wake up early and make good use of your time. At the end of the day you will sleep more peacefully knowing that you gave your best and that you are getting closer to your dream.

7. PRAY

If God is for you,  who dare be against you? You don’t have to be perfect to pray,  there is no such thing as a perfect person. You just have to know and believe that there is a God. Go to Him humbly and tell Him what you want and He will surely listen and answer you.

I believe that everything happens for a reason. So take every challenge positively including this strike and make something good come out of it.

Success is yours, you were born for it, now go get it!

  1. Know who will do the exam

Sure, teachers are on strike. But one thing is certain. Teachers will not do the exams but you as student will. The success in KCSE exams determines to a great extent your academic success in future. Keep reminding yourself, that you are the one to sit for the exams. Not your teachers. Not your parents. Not your brothers. But you and you alone. Know what you need to do to be ready for the exams.

2. Cover the syllabus

One of the things that will guarantee you success in your forth coming 2015 KCSE exams is covering the syllabus. 2015 KCSE exams like all other exams are set using a syllabus. Success is to those who will have covered the syllabus and understood the content. Get a copy of the syllabus. See what you need to have covered. With or without the teacher ensure you have thoroughly covered the syllabus and success is guaranteed.

3. Do not apportion blames

It is easy to blame the teachers for your failures. It is easy to blame your parents for your failures. It is easy to blame friends for your failures. It is easy to blame the strike if you fail 2015 KCSE examinations. Simply; teachers did their exams and passed, that’s why they are where they are today. Life is yours and yours alone. At the end of everything if you fail you will cry alone, but if you succeed, you will laugh and others will share your laughter! Blame yourself for your failures and congratulate yourself for the successes! Remember with strike or no strike you are the one to sit for the exam!

4. Keep 20th October in Mind

History has it, KCSE exams will start after 20th October. So take note of that date. It is to you as your birthday is.
