Setting Academic Goals for Study Time
Start with goalsToo often we assimilate the goals of studying into something convenient like Get good grades or Do well on a test. Vague goals are unmanageable goals. Increasingly, the philosophy on goals is that goals need to be both specific and attainable. Setting and creating micro goals creates what is called micro progress which adds up to big accomplishments. For study sessions both daily and weekly, create small goals: read X amount of pages, make X amount of note cards, memorize X amount of notecards, do X amount of research for a paper, write X amount of pages for a paper, etc. Then, set goals academically. Many teachers offer point based breakdowns of what it takes to earn certain grades. Earn an A by midterms. Raise C to B by end of spring term. Rather than put all the emphasis on endless study sessions, setting goals helps create a sustainable work flow with intermittent accomplishments worth celebrating.
