I’m glad! Not everyone is. It shows something about you…
Don’t you think primary school was easy? We happily ran around and played. Most things were done for us and we frolicked about with few cares in the world.
But things have changed. Nowadays, we’re supposed to live below our means, repeat the same dull routine day in, day out and expected to ‘just get on with it’. Work hard, get good grades and life will be good. That’s how it should be, right?
Or so we’re told.
I entered college with a similar attitude, but after being taught otherwise and a boatload of searching, I came to a different conclusion – one that I’d love to share with you.
Unfortunately I haven’t met you (maybe that’ll change), but there’s one thing I know extremely well about you: your potential is mind-blowing. Countless students get bogged down in the mundane, useless stuff without tapping into that staggering potential. I don’t want that to happen to you.
The Student Manual serves to solve that problem. It’s a distillation of the ideas which have transformed me and taken me away from the dull and boring.
Can it do the same for you? I think so, but let’s find out:
The Student Manual
This is a collection of the principles and ideas I wish were taught in education, from personal philosophy and responsibility to goal setting and building rapport – all encased in four diverse topics of health, relationships, wealth and skills.
Yes – it’s a book, but not one of those massive textbooks with dreaded, endless walls of text. The content is broken up and easy to read with section summaries if you like to skim or want a quick reminder.
It also contains over 25 sections in a mere 80 pages – short so it won’t steal your time. However, I wanted to get as much across as possible with no fluff, so it’s quite dense.
Like you, I’m a student, so there are absolutely no adults or teachers (promise).
Exams and tests come and go, but the things which really matter – your dreams, your ambitions, your life – are with you forever. It sounds daunting, but you’ll regret it if you ignore them.
I hope you find the ideas as useful as they have been to me.
