Discover what you want Knowing where we want to go increases the probability that we will arrive at our destination. Discovering what we want makes it more likely that we’ll attain it. Discovering what you want helps you succeed in higher education.
Becoming a Master Student is about learning, and learning results when you are active. First, read the table of contents. Next, look at every page in the text. Move quickly. Scan headlines. Look at pictures. Notice forms, charts, and diagrams.
Master student qualities Mastery means attaining a level of skill that goes beyond technique. It can only be learned and experienced: Inquisitive, Able to Focus Attention, Willing to Change, Able to Organize and Sort, Competent, Joyful, Able to Suspend Judgment...
The master student process include: Discovery—observing your thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and current circumstances. Intention—choosing the new outcomes you’d like to create. Action—following through on your intentions with new behaviors
Discovery is to help you gain awareness of “where you are”—your current thoughts, feelings, and behaviors: Record the specifics, Use discomfort as a signal, Suspend judgment, Tell the truth.
Intention That make a positive difference in your life: Make intentions observable, Make intentions small and achievable, Anticipate self-sabotage, Be careful with intentions that depend on other people, Set timelines, Create reminders, Reward yourself.
Action Describe what you’ll actually do, When you get stuck, tell the truth about it, do the exercises, this is a self-experimenting book. It’s about defining what matters to you and choosing what to do as a result.
Work smarter, not harder Sometimes—and especially in college—learning does take effort. As you become a master student, you can learn many ways to get the most out of that effort.
Use what works If it works, use it. If it doesn’t, lose it.
Get full value for your money Your college education is one of the most expensive things you will ever buy. When you add up all the direct and indirect expenses, you might be paying $100 an hour or more to sit in class.
You control the value you get out of your education The joy of learning aside, higher levels of education relate to higher lifetime income and more consistent employment. It pays to be a master student.
Learning styles The modes of learning can be accessed by asking four basic questions: Why? What? How? and What if? You can use this four-part structure to effectively learn anything.
The power of the power processes is a suggestion to shift your perspective or try a new behavior. Start with an open mind, experiment with the ideas, and see what works.
Motivation One is that the terms self-discipline, willpower, and motivation describe something missing in ourselves. A second approach to thinking about motivation is to stop assuming that motivation is mysterious, determined at birth, or hard to come by.
Ways to change a habit When you discover a behavior that undermines your goals or creates a circumstance that you don’t want, consider a new attitude: That behavior is just a habit. And it can be changed.
Ways to move successfully through the stages of habit change "Tell the truth, Start small, Rehearse the new habit, Trigger the habit, Practice the new habit, Give it time, Be willing to revise your plans, Get feedback and support, Monitor your behavior, Celebrate success, Change your environment."
Tell the truth Telling the truth about our current habits—from chewing our fingernails to cheating on tests—frees us. Telling the truth allows us to see what’s actually sinking the ship.
Start small Draw on the “power of one.” Change one habit at a time—a behavior that you will do once each day. The hardest part of developing a new habit is simply getting started.
Rehearse the new habit Before committing to the new behavior on a daily basis, make sure that it’s something you can and will do: rehearse it in your mind, rehearse the new habit physically as well.
Trigger the habit To increase your success at behavior change, link a new habit to an existing habit—one that’s stable and predictable.
Practice the new habit Learning is a stable change in behavior that comes as a result of practice. This is key to changing habits.
Give it time Give yourself enough time to make the change—whatever it takes. When your new behavior develops into a stable habit, you’ll know that you’ve succeeded.
Be willing to revise your plans If your planned habit change doesn’t work, then simply note what happened. Then select a new habit and begin again. Even when you don’t get the results you want from a new behavior, you learn something valuable in the process.
Get feedback and support is a crucial step in adopting a new behavior. It is also a point at which many plans for change break down. Starting new habits might call for the more focused, long-lasting support that close friends or family members can give.
Monitor your behavior to take a series of small steps that add up to a big change.
Celebrate success Every time that you practice your new habit, celebrate. Draw on the power of positive emotions to reinforce new behaviors.
Change your environment Just set up your environment so that the undesired behaviors become harder—and desired behaviors become easier.
