Paving Your Path to Success



Getting Organised for Success

Posted on February 6, 2018 at 1:10 AM

We are really kicking off into the school year now. Fiirst day jitters should be passed and school shoes worn in. It is now time to start with the end in mind - as the wise Mr Covey would say! You know how last year ended. You know how things were during the busy exam time at the end of last year. Sit down now and talk about what went well last year and what needs more attention this year. Were you organised for your examinations? Were you able to do your best work? Did you show your best self to the  world? What do you need to do to ensure that your best self finishes this year?

One thing that you can do riight now is to start your 5 Point a Day summary book. 

At the end of the day write down 5 things that you learnt each lesson - be careful that this is not what you learnt ABOUT but actually what you LEARNT. Then write the date at the top of the page for 3 days from today, 2 weeks from today and then 6 weeks from today. These are the days that you will revisit your learning. Give your brain a chance to hold it all in!!

It is a small task, but one which will make all the difference!

But one key difference is that for a phrase to be truly aphoristic, it needs to be a short statement.
The early bird gets the worm.
Better safe than sorry is a piece of wisdom from Samuel Lover’s book, Rory O’More.
You create them.
Picture of Benjamin Franklin and a caption that says "Aphorist Extraordinaire"
Want a few more.
Aphorisms state universal truths about life that encourage reflection.
From there, you can build your story around it.
An aphorism is a literary device that uses a short, clever saying to express a general truth.
Proverbs, on the other hand, can be much longer than aphorisms and adages.
The original dictum said, A penny spar’d is twice got, but it’s adapted over the years for modern English.
The idea is simple.
Washington also said, It is better to offer no excuse than a bad one.
That’s not what you expected, was it.
Finally, All things come to those who wait is a good aphorism we’re all familiar with.
So my advice.
