What you need to achieve your goal of clearing JEE or NEET? Is it motivation or desire? Motivation is short lived and doesn’t lead to consistent action. Desire is useless without hard work and effort.
Best Strategy to Achieve JEE/NEET Goal
The best way to achieve your goal of clearing your target exam is to make a plan. Planning out when and how you will study will result in action.
If you do plan out when and how you are going to finish a topic or chapter, your goal has a time and a space to live in the real world. If you don’t plan out your studies, then you rely on your willpower and motivation to inspire you to act.
“Deciding in advance when and where you will take specific actions to reach your goal can double or triple your chances for success.” – Heidi Grant Halvorson, Columbia University professor.
That desire out of you and turns it into action isn’t your level of motivation, but rather your plan for implementation.
Important : You have to execute your plan asap. Don’t over-plan. Defining how the problem could be solved isn’t actually solving the problem.
What to Do When Your JEE/NEET Study Plan is Not Working
Sometimes you won’t be able to study as per your JEE/NEET schedule - no matter how perfect your plan. In situations like these, it’s great to use the “if–then” version of this strategy.
For example –
- If I don’t study for 4 hours daily, then I won’t play my favorite sport or turn on the TV, until I do.
- If I am not able to complete this topic today, then I will wake up early in the morning to finish it.
The “if–then” strategy gives you a clear plan for overcoming the shortfall or unused time.
If you want to achieve your JEE or NEET goal, then you need a plan for exactly when and how you’re going to study for your target exam.
All the best.
