Two things.......pay attention to what is boring.....and try to steer clear of it as a major, career, and profession and pay attention to what is fun and not boring, and pursue that as a major, career, and profession. Secondly, talk to your teacher and see if you can prove your knowledge in a different way than maybe a test. For example, my daughter homeschools and we do not do any testing, instead she just tells me what she knows or she makes something to show me and the best part is she turns around and sells it!!!! YEP.....she is 11 making money while she sleeps. She makes PowerPoints, Worksheets, and Tests on things for other kids, including an answer sheet, and teachers buy it. The fact she has an answer sheet shows me she knows the subject right? See if your teacher will do an experiment with you and just let you give them a presentation of sorts or make them a resource for the other students to prove you know the subject instead of having to study for the test. AND THEN GO SELL IT ON TEACHER PAY TEACHER!!! Finally, I meant what I said in the first part.....as you go to college if you are BORED........chances are whatever you are studying, if boring, is going to be boring as a career. When you find something you love and could do for free, would read and study for free, and that is exciting......you have found your passion so pay attention to your natural inclination. Yes it won't always be fun and games and easy......but there are a gazillion different career paths, so chances are you will find something that won't bore you!

You can turn boring to real fun in learning in things.

Two things that I can suggest from my experience:

  1. Collaborate with friends by sharing the topics and teaching each other, help you save time too.
  2. Reading text is always boring and therefore be creative to put the content in the pictorial form, so you remember it for a very long time and easy to revise yourself.

If we are being honest, studying is not how we would choose to spend our free time. That being said, there are ways to make it a little more bearable. I have always found it beneficial to take breaks after extended periods of time studying. This will give your brain a break and allow you to recharge a little bit before you start again. Some good brain break ideas could be watching television, taking a walk, listening to music, or working out. Another way to make studying more fun is to do it with your friends in the course. However, this could be distracting from the purpose so be careful.

I'd recommend studying more often in short bursts of ten to fifteen minutes per day, starting well ahead of when you need to actually be prepared. Then, give yourself a fun little reward whenever you finish a micro-studying session, even if it's just a small candy. You'll learn to look forward to your study times since you'll start associating it with the reward.

For the short term, I used incentivize myself. So if I study for 30 minutes straight, I could have a piece of candy. If I study 90 minutes straight, I would take a break to watch something on TV for 30 minutes. When I finished a paper, I would order myself my favorite dinner. Basically it becomes a game against yourself. Then you can try challenging yourself to go longer before a reward.

Good Luck!

Gregg
