    This Thread might change your life if you are willing to put in all the necessary effort to change!

    Monday 12 April 2021 - We will start the given challenge to work togather for a better future!

    First we need to follow up a certain rules:

    1) Find a Quiet Place at Home where you will feel confortable.

    2) Eliminate Anything and Everything that can distract you from your studies!

    3) Your Phone is Your Enemy Turn it off and do not use it until this session is Over!

    4) You can use concentration Music if it suits you, if it doesn't no need to use it!

    5) If you find it difficult studying! do at least 10 - 15 Minutes of Mindfulnes Meditation to stop your brain from wandering!


    Tricks to use when studying:

    The Pomodoro Technique; it's a technique in which you will be using 25 Minutes of studying and taking a break of 5 minutes afterwards, do it 4x times and you can take a longer break of 20 minutes.

    For the first week, we will be working ona simple warm up! just this:

    - 25 minutes and 5 minutes

    - 25 minutes and 5 minutes


    Just let your brain warm up for what's coming up ahead!

    Remember we want you to become addicted to this technique as it is so productive!

    It is also suggested to have a little notebook where you can write down everyday's progress with this technique!

    This is a video explaining the Pomodoro Technique:

    Personally, I use A3 Huge pappers and More than 30 Colors to link things togather, I suggest you watch the video i've linked above and apply it!


    One Last thing:

    By Monday 12 April 2021 - I'll be waiting for your reply everyday, you will be telling us how many Pomodoro's you will be destroying everyday! - Good Luck and Remember i'll be waiting your reply everyday!

    Interesting challenge, sadly I'm not a fan of pomodoros, I don't remember the name of it but I like the technique that is like.

    15-30min timer, study until you get saturated or get out of flow, activate timer, relax, then whenever you are a bit refreshed, stop timer, back to it, it may be 5-8-10-15min, in any case, the longer the break, the less breaks you will have until you finish a 2-4h session.

    I don't like pomodoros because with it when I'm starting to get into flow, it commands me to stop, and when I feel saturated or tired, makes me push through unfruitful study until the timer goes off.

    Just my take... I like the idea of a study challenge anyways.

    Alrigth! I'm in! Since i do have to learn for my exams and need some accountability and pressure for both appearing on this forum and learning i dont see any negative sides :)
    I will use the time to learn about mental health-growth and to learn for my exams in equal pieces!
    Good idea on creating this Thread!

    Love this man, I need to do this.

    I have Pomodoro as part of my regular workflow. Only that in days I'm distracted or not doing well, I then forgo it (with negative consequences as can be said)

    I also am an MBA student with an personal interest in sales and corporate management! I am from Germany and our grades system is different than from the one used in the US. But i think my GPA during my bachelorstudies was around 2.7. I will really try to push my GPA to at least 3 but of course higher is better!

    Today was my first day of learning! I learned in two 40min sessions, which were in reality pomodoro sessions because i needed around 10 min to get into each but better than not starting at all!
    The material was quite interesting, i learned about supply chains :)

    I think there is a problem with my attention span, it is too short even when i read and try to summarize a paragraph my mind drifts away.

    I heard that it is important to "Empty Your Mind" Before studying meaning nothing else has to be in there beside The Subject you are studying, I will be doing another Meditation Type; Called the Transcendental Meditation - I have no idea what it is, but i'll be doing it including my regular Meditation, Hope it will work!
    I'm 90% sure i've had ADHD - And it's effect are still around, But I'll find a way to cure it naturally, thanks for reading I hope you are doing alright with your studies!

    If you have any problem regarding your studies, share we'll try to solve it! As long as you are serious and will to study. Good Luck.
