If you’re having trouble studying and you’re thinking, “how do I stay focused on my homework?” and you can’t stay focused, here’s a trick. Get a piece of paper or a pad of paper and a pen and keep them with you when you are studying. What you are going to do is as soon as you get an idea in your head, you’re going to write it down on the pad and go back to studying. That’s the idea. Ok?
Instead of thinking about the idea or playing it through, you’ll get back to it – you can look at the pad later but just write anything that bugs you or distracts into your head; write it down on your pad and go back to studying; that’s how you stay focused on homework.
