Why are the no stress/time/energy management guides on PF?

  1. Nov 6, 2012 #1
    You'd think that with the amount of intellectual discussion that goes around here, there would be an interesting amount of discussion on increasing productivity for maximum learning, right?

    But instead, I always hear misconceptions on these forums: for instance, people always say that you merely need to work harder to do better in school. This is misleading advice. Sure, you need motivation, but that isn't all there is to academic success. See this article and this one here for more info.

    I'm actually thinking of writing a mini-guide to maybe help those who are studying academically, but before I do so, I just want to make sure that it's within PF's rules. So what do you guys say? The reason I'm asking is because I don't want to risk putting time into something that will just be deleted.

    I really like this idea, as I recently posted a question about time management. Hope your response from the admins is favorable.

    It's true that these issues are frequent topics. Just about everyone who pushes through a STEM education deals with this.

    There's a lot of good advice (see the "similar threads" below, as well as the one I started and to which people are commenting) on this forum already. Perhaps it could be compiled into a thread 'quote style.'

    I'd do it if I had..well..time!
