Yours truly has a couple of exams to take over the coming weekends.
Made me wonder how taking an exam makes us think up strategies.
For now, I know I am going to attack the theoretical stuff first and then do the mathematical stuff later. The objective is to get the magical score of 80 on 200.
With a goal in sight, the mind conjures up different ways of achieving it, and the brain silts out the logical one.
We compromise. Then we plan how to justify the compromise. And then we compromise on that plan.
Jack Welch once said that learning a subject should be like tending to a farm. The sowing, the weeding, the plowing all need to be done at the right times, only then will the harvest be bountiful. You can't cram the farm !
If I were to own the farm, I'd do all that in the 11th hour and 59th minute. Thank God I'm not a farmer !
