Dear Valued Subscribers and Visitors,
The time has come. It’s less than a week before the results are out. I’m sure each and every single one of you are as nervous and jittery as I am. Well, the results have already been cast in stone. There a few things I wish to take away from the outcome of this Friday:
1. Reflecting on the previous year
I set very high goals for myself and I believe that you do too. Our actions should always reflect our goals on a daily basis. Have you ever caught yourself being lazy or simply not acting towards achieving your goals? I sure have. There are just times when I feel lazy as shit. Very candidly, sometimes I even ask myself whether I’m deserving of achieving my goals! I strongly believe that if one is truly serious about the goals he or she has set, there will be a study plan accompanying the goal to ensure that we work towards it. Did you follow your plan diligently? Let’s all reflect on our actions for the past year and if you feel that you do not deserve to achieve your goals, please continue reading.
2. Looking ahead to the next academic year
One of the things which I made myself do last year was to start studying for the next academic year the day after I finished my last paper. That was how bad I wanted to achieve my goals. So far, the year has been exactly the way I wanted it to be. In all honesty, it was a pretty difficult year for me, given that I was taking EOE without any background in statistics. It might be a tad too late to start now but you can do your early preparation before the academic year begins. Decide on your modules early; as soon as you receive your results this Friday, spend an hour to decide what are the units you are going to take this year and start preparing early. Make investments by buying textbooks, folders to keep notes, notebooks for specific units, etc. By putting in money and resources into these things, you are committing yourself to your studies. Your efforts will pay off; I guarantee you.
With that, I would like to wish you the very best for this Friday and I sincerely wish you achieve what you want. It has been my utmost pleasure going through this journey with you for Intro to Econs. It was very challenging to get this website to where it is today and trust me, I would never be able to do this without all you awesome peeps out there.
Just a short note, if you’re taking Macroeconomics next year, I want to be there for you too. Join me for the EMPOWERING MACROECONOMICS PREPARATION WORKSHOP. Remember what we discussed about early preparation and investment? Here’s a first step for you. Stay tuned for more information on how to get tickets and secure seats!
