5 Tips For New School Year

  1. Set goals for yourself.

What do you want to accomplish this school year? Are there areas you didn’t do as well as you would have liked last school year? Write them down. Decide what you need to do in order to improve in those areas.

2. Be organized.

Have a planner, record due dates of all assignments and quizzes. Schedule time to study. The Bible says in 2 Timothy 2:15, Study to shew thyself approved unto God. This scripture does not only apply to the word of God but can apply to your schoolwork as well. Preparation is important. Don’t leave anything to your memory, it often fails you at the most inopportune time.

3. Do something different.

Last school year may not have been as successful as you wanted it to be. Learn from your mistakes and do something different this school year. Did you study as much as you should? Were you organized? Did you ask for help when you needed it? Don’t continue to do the same thing every year while expecting the result to be different.

4. Don’t Stop Trying.

It’s easy to get discouraged when you don’t achieve the results you’re expecting right away. However, don’t stop trying. If you’ll continue to follow your set plans and keep trying, eventually you’ll achieve the desired results you’re looking for.

5.  Seek God Always

Except the lord build the house they labor in vain that build it… Psalm 127:1. Your Heavenly Father wants you to succeed. Seek Him every step of the way. Ask Him for guidance and help as you strive to make this school year your most successful one yet.

I am praying for you and cheering you on as you begin a new chapter in your educational journey.
