Thank goodness for scheduling blog posts. Right now, I am taking my Latin final exam, and I will have 3 to go after that. I have been studying for all of my subjects this entire weekend, and I will continue to study for the entire week until Thursday (then school is over). The way final exams are taken can be a lesson for business owners.
Final exams require a student to recall everything he or she has learned for the entire school year (in some cases such as mine, the second semester). Either way, that is a lot of information to learn within a short period of time. The more information you learn in a short amount of time, the better you will be able to do on the final exam.
The final exam forces you to cram in everything and hope to get a good result. Although most businesses owners aren’t recalling everything they know on a weekend, taking final exams will teach you how to learn more information quicker within a shorter period of time. By recalling and learning more information, you will be able to learn and remember more things for your business as well. I have been able to remember every Twitter tip that can help with getting more followers, and by the end of the summer, you can expect a book from me about being successful on Twitter.
By taking final exams, we are also forced out of our comfort zone. Students do better in some subjects than in others. However, the final exams require a student to recall and learn information on every subject. By being forced to do something we may not like in the beginning, we are able to excel in it and move forward.
Final exams can either be the best way to learn or a horror depending on the student. The more you learn or learned from taking endterms, the more information you will be able to recall and learn for your business.
