Yesterday on Twitter Leo Babauta of the Zen Habits blog asked anyone to tweet him with a question about his area’s of expertise which is kind of self help on achieving goals, productivity, being organized…. happiness, and successfully implementing good habits. I asked:
The reason I talk about this is something that a college Trigonometry professor once told me. He said, “the quicker you get your work done, the more time you have to enjoy the important things in life”. So to apply that to students today, if they sit down, work on their studies, take them seriously for time that it takes to work through them then they will have more time to enjoy themselves. They may also enjoy school more because they didn’t get distracted, waste their time and not get their studies done. That leads to poor grades, lower self esteem from negative reinforcement and drop outs. Lets get our students to get it done, then they can play. I think it can work if we are positive with our students.
