How You As a Student Can Become Self-Disciplined

Jun 12, 2008
This article is written with the intent to help you, as a student, become more self-disciplined. Unfortunately, it's become a common trait among students (and teachers alike) to slack and no longer posses the self-discipline required for serious studies. Self-discipline can, in essence, be described as a form of training, selective training. This form of training includes forming new habits and changing previous habits, thoughts and actions in order to produce a better "environment" to study. It's important, as we move forward, that you view this form of discipline as both positive and obligatory. So how do you go about when disciplining yourself to study more and better? There is no secret formula, but there are some general guidelines you might find helpful. Keep in mind that people learn in many different ways, it's therefor immensely important that you try to find a good and suitable way that gets the job done for you. Here's a a few suggestions you might consider when trying to improve your self-discipline.

Schedule your study sessions throughout the day as short tasks, a specific number in the morning and another in the evening. This will help you find continuity in your studying. Be sure that you assign a specific time line for all your tasks. For instance, you could say that leaning new words and definitions should never exceed 35 minutes (or any other time frame you chose). Be sure to wait for the exact scheduled time, being on time is important. Obviously, you could always vary the time depending on the different circumstances that are present but try to stay consistent over time. Stick to your schedule for at least a month (maybe even two), this will give you the necessary time needed to evaluate it's effectiveness. Also, be sure that you try to document all your results very carefully, why? Because this will turn out to be helpful when you're evaluating your schedule later on.

By following a specific schedule, you avoid the problem of acting on impulse. Doing that could jeopardize your studies, hence you should be very vigilant to evaluate the importance of external events that effect your schedule. Another positive thing with keeping a record of your academic accomplishments is that it helps you give a more correct estimation on how much time each event really needs. You may even find that you have some time over, be sure to use this time wisely to get more things done. Having a study routine is crucial for succeeding in college, keep this in mind!.

Finally, I would like to remind you of firmness and patience. A successful students needs to hold firm and not bend due to external or internal pressure. It is very true that you can not control time but you can control yourself from wasting it! Time is a precious thing, unfortunately many students don't realize this and thus waste their allocated study time for other things. Don't do that! It could be devastating for your study results, each and everything has it's allocated time, do keep that in mind!
