Being “perfect”, a qualification craved by many, attained by a few, yet, dreamt by all.
First of all, truth be told, nobody’s perfect, and nobody can ever be.
Is the girl/guy who scores the highest in your class, a perfect student, just because s/he tops?
The answer is “No”. Scoring the best is easy, anyone can do it, and hell no, I’m not kidding.
If you study hardly smartly, you top the class. Period. But that does not make you a perfect student.
Lets clear basics first, who’s a student?
A student is anyone who’s learning anything. So, there’s nothing like a “bad student” or a “good student” and this has absolutely nothing to do with marks. Whether you understand anything, or you don’t, you remain a student, because you are on the path of learning. Anyone who understands this is already walking on the correct boulevard.
So, who’s a “perfect student” then?
“Beta, kaabil bano kaabil, kaamyabi jhakk maarke pichhe aaegi”
Elaborating, the following are the DOs to start walking towards being a perfect student:
- Her definition of “studies” should be independent of marks.
- She shouldn’t be ashamed of her marks.
- For her, “I’m studying” =/= “Cramming for examination”
- Works hard smart
- Doesn’t give her sitcoms up, for “studies”, rather, manages time very well, to compromise none.
- Asks questions. Hell a lot of questions (including silly ones)
- Behaves well
- Her focus should be on the solution to a problem, rather than fretting over it.
- She looks for practicality in every damn theory
- Sound sleeper, i.e., sleeps like a baby, for at least 8-9 hours.
- She has to be punctual, or else, she might mismanage her daily schedule, thus creating a mess b/w studies and fun. And missing any is strictly prohibited. So, punctuality it is.
- She shouldn’t have a pre-occupied mind, i.e., she must be a keen learner and a good listener. The freer mind available, the better it is.
So, the more you abide by the above 13-point-bible, the more stress-free you will be. Thus, one step closer to being a perfect student, which is kind of cool, already.
P.S – I used “She, her”, as reference, in the 13-points because I was fed up seeing “He, him” everywhere.207 Views
