Study Tip of the Month

Set a schedule for studying. Write in your agenda an appointment to study much like you would schedule a doctor's appointment or meeting and keep your appointments! 

Reflect and Connect

"Autumn is the perfect time to take account of what we've done, what we didn't do, and what we'd like to do next year." ~Author Unknown

Do you use Autumn as a time for reflection? What could you have done differently this year? What will you do differently in the seasons to come?
