5 Things That Will Make You Productive During School Holidays

5 Things That Will Make You Productive During School Holidays

It’s the beginning of the summer holidays and, for some, the end of exams for a long while to come. But that doesn’t mean you don’t have anything productive to do during these school holidays! 

Now is not the time to get complacent! 

Conversely, by taking the gift of time as an opportunity to get ahead can be a game-changer. (Remember, too, that you can apply the principles in this article to any school break, not just the summer.) 

Do you not believe me? 

To demonstrate my point, merely look at all of the idiots who choose to spend their school holidays unproductively; you’ll find most people can’t get their priorities straight and thus don’t make progress in life. They may: 

  • Play video games all day long 
  • Take a full-on holiday away in a foreign country or some resort 
  • Socialise — excessively 

On the other side of things, you want to spend your holidays productively as a student — you’re ambitious. (Or, at least, I hope you have big dreams in your life if you’re reading this.) 

Anyway, as you can see, the competition is small. Therefore, it is very possible for you to achieve great things in your spare time. 

That is, as long as you are willing to put in the hard work and make sacrifices others aren’t willing to make.

My 3 Miracle Secrets to Absorb Knowledge [Super Quickly!]

My 3 Miracle Secrets to Absorb Knowledge [Super Quickly!]

Why Should You Be in the Hot Pursuit of Knowledge?

The successful person is always learning—always absorbing knowledge.

Fact-machine. This would have described a mere school-age boy back in the day, and what a title it was! Above all else, this boy knew exactly how to absorb knowledge at an exceedingly alarming rate.

For instance, he read books ceaselessly like an unstoppable choo-choo train. Not just that, but he was able to retain the extensive vaults of knowledge encapsulated within them.

The child—whose mind bulged with raw information—has, in all likelihood, read more books than you will ever read. And that’s solely in his childhood. If you think you’re shaking your head at this, would you like a bet, m8?

All right, then see if you can match yourself up to these juicy facts:

  • He read all the books in his neighbourhood library
  • He read all the books in his school’s library
  • Finding himself exhausted of information-yielding material, he subsequently went on to absorb the knowledge of two entire encyclopaedias.

“I started to read the Encyclopaedia Britannica. That was so helpful.”

— Elon Musk

While the young learner evidently struggled to make friends, you could imagine the great feats he went on to accomplish. In fact, don’t just imagine them—look at them yourself!

The boy’s name was Elon Musk. Indeed, this immensely successful figure is the same person as the previously discussed book-hungry sponge.

How did he get to where he is? An inextinguishable flame, confident in posture, burned strong within him; his sheer determination to absorb knowledge fast and effectively in order to achieve his goals.

This, in my opinion, demonstrates the power of knowledge and learning perfectly.

So, when are you going to start achieving great things?
