(Grades 2-6) Why Does Studying Have to Be So Difficult? Some children become overly stressed at the simple mention of a test, while others avoid thinking about it at all. Neither approach is healthy. Having good study skills can make a huge difference when it comes to succeeding in both school and in life. However, good study skills are not innate, they must be taught, embraced and cultivated. When children learn the correct way to study, they develop effective skills that can lead to a greater chance of success later in life. Polar opposites, Cletus and Bocephus become study partners Bocephus over studies and stresses about every assignment and test. Cletus studies as little as possible and puts off any preparation until the night before. Knowing that neither approach is effective, Cletus' mom introduces them to powerful, hands-on, study tips called, The Amazing Great 8 The boys then learn how good study skills can affect not only their grades, but also their attitudes and results.

In fact, it can make you stronger! She also points out that although it feels great to celebrate a win, winning isn't everything, and whining about things just makes it worse.

The Plateau Effect is a powerful law of nature that affects everyone. Learn to identify plateaus and break through any stagnancy in your life— from diet and exercise, to work, to relationships. The Plateau Effect shows how athletes, scientists, therapists, companies, and musicians around the world are learning to break through their plateaus—to turn off the forces that cause people to “get used to” things—and turn on human potential and happiness in ways that seemed impossible. The book identifies three key flattening forces that generate plateaus, two principles to guide readers in engineering a plateau’s destruction, and three actions to take to achieve peak behavior. It helps us to stop wasting time on things that are no longer of value and to focus on the things that leverage our time and energy in spectacular ways. Anything you want to do better—play guitar, make friends, communicate with your children, run a business—you can accomplish faster by understanding the plateau effect.
