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.
