There is absolutely no question that if you want your college student to be safe, with the very best personal protection device on the planet, then you will make sure that student has a D.A.D.® 2 by TigerLight. Nothing else comes close.

However, there is more to school than safety, even though safety should be everyone’s top priority.

Over the next 14 weeks I will post a little something about safety and the D.A.D.® 2 and/or the forthcoming M.O.M.’s role in achieving safety and college safety. Additionally, once a week I will summarize the next of 14 tips to making school an incredibly rewarding experience. These 14 tips were used by the valedictorians at a Grade School, Junior High and High School as well as the recipient of a $60,000 academic scholarship.

“So much of our time is preparation, so much is routine, and so much retrospect, that the path of each man's genius contracts itself to a very few hours.”  ~Ralph Waldo Emerson”

TIP 1 of 14: Commit to a total daily study time. First decide how much time you will dedicate to school each day and write the number down. This is a very important decision. What is the total time you will study, to prepare for your future?  If you want to do anything great, you need to schedule the time and then focus on that one thing and on nothing else—no distractions!

This is one of several decisions that will separate you from a vast sea of mediocrity.

A college student should not have to study more than two to three hours outside of class time. I’ve seen students schedule anywhere from 1.5 hours to 2 hours, sometimes 3 hours for graduate school. It depends on how well the student applies the next 13 tips and how difficult the classes are.

Principle:  Deciding on and committing to a total daily study time. Committing to a specific amount of study time will help your brain focus, help you prioritize and help you learn faster. I scheduled two hours per day Monday through Friday, four hours Saturday and none on Sunday. In graduate school I increased it to three hours each day.

Practice:  Write your total time per day where you will see it every day. Your goal is to never exceed this amount of time and to make that possible by applying the principles and techniques in this book, with total commitment.
