10 Tips to Be a Total Bad-Ass Academic





Even under stressful situations, 007 always maintains his cool.






1 ) Relieve your stress and bend it before it bends you.

2 ) Take advantage of your time wisely.

3 ) Improve focus by not taking on too many tasks at once. Man has got to know his limitations.

4 ) Get adequate sleep when you must, but also forgo stress when necessary. Let me be contradicting: Sleep is for the weak. No sleep makes you weak.

5 ) Never underestimate the power of exercise and a good diet.

6 ) Always be prepared. Make sure you go into every endeavor prepared.

7 ) A sharp pencil yields a sharp mind. The pen is always mightier than the sword. Revolution in ink, not by vengeance.

8 ) Never let people judge you or determine your life. These people are absolutely worthless to you and should be considered that way by you.

9 ) Never let the opposite sex get a free night’s rent in your head. Human attraction and lust can be a beautiful, but potent drug for your head. Be strong when you must, and always be aware of the situation to avoid complications.

10 ) Always learn from your mistakes and never to regret. Behind every success are many branches of failures which support it.


Bend your Stress.
