At college we were average students. We worked hard and got good grades, but had to make compromises. There just wasn’t time to do everything we wanted to do.
If we knew then what we now know about productivity and performance, college life would have been very different. We’d have achieved more and had a lot more fun! There would have been a lot more sleep and a lot less stress too.
Academic success goes beyond intelligence. It’s also dependent on how well you can manage your time (and yourself). For example:
Do you have a balance – so there’s fun as well as studying
Can you optimize your day – so you don’t needlessly waste precious time
Can you nurture a positive mindset – so you maintain an optimistic outlook when things get challenging
Are you consciously reflecting on your progress – so you’re always on the trajectory for success
Do you practice the 80/20 rule and tackle the most important tasks first – so each day is meaningful and worthwhile
Do you feel in control of your life – by having all your commitments and obligations in one easy to refer to place
Back in 2015, we wanted to build our own business. We wanted to freedom to be in control and do something we loved.
That’s what kick-started our obsession with productivity, planning, and success.
We wondered what made some people successful, while others struggled to achieve their potential.
We wanted answers and we found them by studying the success secrets of some of the world’s top performers. Countless books, seminars, courses, masterminds, and experiments later, we discovered three ingredients that made the difference:
We wove these principles into a comprehensive planning tool designed to help people structure their day, prioritize the importance stuff, and nurture a positive mindset.
The SELF Journal was born...
And since it’s Kickstarter launch in 2016, we’ve sold thousands of copies and helped countless people achieve more than they ever thought possible.
In fact, this tool is so powerful that Daymond John has even endorsed it.
“As #ThePeoplesShark, I am always on the lookout for new resources to share with my fellow entrepreneurs. The SELF Journal was a no brainer! Writing down my goals has been one of my daily rituals for years and is something that I truly believe in. Write it down, visualize it, make it happen! The SELF Journal has only made this easier and more productive. It is a must for every aspiring entrepreneur!” – Daymond John
And now we’ve taken the principles of the SELF Journal and modified the structure for academics and students (just like you).
The SELF Scholar contains all the best bits of the SELF Journal, but tweaked to reflect the varied demands of a college course and hectic student life.
We hope it empowers you have the best experience at college possible.
