[K]nowing oneself is vital to boost one’s learning capability. Kickstart the process by delving deeper to identify your strengths,  weaknesses, opportunities and threats (SWOT). Thereafter, manage these effectively with the resources you have. This process helps to channel your effort towards the right things, cope better with failure and seize potential opportunities readily.

Plan ahead and it will lower your likelihood of missing that golden chance. Having an idea of what you want to achieve and what you need to get there (be it short/long term goals), will help you to seek and spot opportunities when they arrive.

Without following through to manage them, these information would be rendered useless.

Build on Your Strengths. Challenge yourself to refine your strengths. There could be a better or faster way to solving a problem, never be contented with the status quo.

Revision of Mistakes. The ‘Book of Mistakes‘ serves as a constant reminder to avoid making the same mistakes. This is especially useful when it comes to exam preparation.

Put Up Post-it Reminders. Keep your goals in sight by leaving yourself little post-its around your learning space. Opportunities in green and threats in red. [/vc_column_text][vc_custom_heading text=”IS THAT ALL YOU NEED?” font_container=”tag:h4|font_size:1.8em|text_align:left|color:%23353535″ google_fonts=”font_family:Merriweather%20Sans%3A300%2C300italic%2Cregular%2Citalic%2C700%2C700italic%2C800%2C800italic|font_style:700%20bold%20regular%3A700%3Anormal” css=”.vc_custom_1564643320640{margin-bottom: 0px !important;padding-top: 20px !important;}”][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1612452343769{padding-top: 20px !important;padding-bottom: 20px !important;}”]For the above process to be effective, it is crucial to align one’s perspective and attitude towards achieving the desired goals.
