Power-Up 2022 with New & Exciting Goals

At the beginning of the year 2021, we talked about some commitments, goals, and progressive actions. These goals were a continuation of our tradition of making resolutions and staying through with achieving them in order to boost our chances of having a better fulfilled year. Although 2021 turned out to be closely related to 2020. Where 2020 saw the rise of the COVID-19 Virus outbreak, 2021 witnessed the rise in vaccination against the COVID -19 virus. Surprisingly, 2021 was a good year for many individuals and organizations alike.

Not many people were able to meet up however with their goals in 2021. This is not because of the struggles associated with 2021 but of having the zeal to push through, set new goals, and carry over some from the previous years. So, as the New Year begins, the first important step to making new and exciting goals is to sit back and reflect on the year that was (2021) and ask the question, what are the things that worked? What didn’t work? What do we want to continue doing in 2022? And what are the negative attitudes we have to say goodbye to?

Here are a few punch lines that will help you improve academic performance, develop soft skills, and be career-ready as an undergraduate?

Continue to Study Smarter

Quizzing yourself is a highly effective study technique. Make a study guide and carry it with you so you can review the questions and answers periodically throughout the day and across several days. Identify the questions that you don’t know and quiz yourself on only those questions. Say your answers aloud and the result will be evident in your grades.

Communicate Differently

The world is a big network of connections. Some of them are of better quality than others, and your time on this earth is limited. Smart learners understand that they need high-quality connections — people around them who will inspire them, shake their worlds, and ask good and deep questions. We learn best when we are relaxed and have real friends and mentor around.

Try new things.

To be able to learn, our brain needs stimulation and then a good rest. Just look at how a small child explores the world, looks at everything with curiosity, then tries to put the pieces together and checks the taste. Later, the child “sleeps like a baby!” Smart learners possess that spark of curiosity and often try something new. Take part in some workshops or skill acquisition training and meet new people.
