Well I'll start off with a little bit about myself; I just entered college this year, at the University of Michigan, a fairly reputable place. I came out of high school with a high GPA, but for the first time I feel like I'm struggling. On my first exam, I received what is likely a C- or, though I'd hope not, a D. I know why - I thought I grasped the material, and pretty much didn't study. But I don't think my reason for not studying was just because I felt confident, I'm also coming to realize I just simply don't know how to study. I never had to study very much or at all in all my years of school, as long as I followed along in class and did my homework. I'm learning the hard way studying is pretty damn important in college, because you just don't get all the information in class, not to mention it's a lot more in depth. So of course, I've been making an effort to study. But my attention seems to wan too often, and I'll be reading but thinking about something else. It's like I'm a fifth grader lacking discipline, without good study skills... I always considered studying to be not important and not necessary, and I feel like I subconsciously still have that attitude. I assume my studying environment is the same as my homework environment, which I have the discipline to do (correctly). But I'll ask you Smogon, how to you get your mind focused on what you have to learn, how do you practice self discipline? Feel free to post similar stories or other related stuff.
