Being productive in College

Being productive in College

An user asked a good question in AskMetaFilter – How to be successful, productive and more organize in college. Some general tips are good suggestions from readers – such as:

… Thoughts on scholastic success (some of these are mentioned above, but when you see them repeatedly, sometimes their value sticks better):

  • Go to office hours. Preferably, when you go you have an idea how to do the problems or have questions lined up. At the very least, it is dedicated time for specific classes. Seriously, few people show, but it is the best way to get help and make your face known to TAs and professors.
  • Should be obvious, but go to class.
  • Set aside non-work time. Many of the people around me who are happiest with their work have specific times that they don’t work. Common rules include “Saturday” or “after midnight.”
  • Make class reading more effective by taking notes and writing down questions on what’s in the text. If appropriate, work out the sample problems or proofs, so things start to make sense to you internally.

I joined couple of mentor programs for university student before. My top recommendation for student is to pursue work experience on the field you like as soon as possible. The experience you gain will help both on the school and your further job prospect.

Book summary: A Technique for Producing Ideas

Kirby Ferguson has written a summary for the book A Technique for Producing Ideas. Generating good idea is a fine art, if you have mastered it you will be successful in many fields. The author of the book, James Young, describes five steps on a technique of combining old elements together:

  • Gather new material, both specific and general.
  • The Mental Digestive Process
  • Drop it
  • Poof, the idea appears
  • Work it

Kirby also brought out his own thoughts – drop down every ideas you have in mind – You mind is not always as good as paper and sometimes it only stays for a short period of time. After you’ve dropped your ideas into your notepad, you will also have extra chances of linking and modifying your ideas together.
