There is an Order of Operation in which “Priorities” should be of concern first and foremost. Pin point deliberation, care, and a strategic following thru are essential to rid and solve the problem at hand as well as to nurture the individual toward a state of illumination.
Sifu Sheria 3/2020
In achieving academic progress one must as well
Determine and exercise one’s learning style
Use due diligence in developing a routine of study, time, place, and activity
Practice solving the problem as often as possible, during convenient as well as inconvenient times
Realize that little steps in the right direction yields better results than big moves of desperation
Not get discouraged with failure, but instead have faith that you will achieve your goal(s) in God’s time
Not procrastinate, but instead start early enough so that you start solving the seed rather than the fruit of the problem
Realize that every problem solution has an essential basis or unit of success which needs to be the point of focus
