Make others notice

Students, if you only do your best work when you like the teacher, or your parents push you, or the boss is watching, that’s giving other people an awful lot of power over your life. And worst of all, you’re letting them control when you’re at your best.

If you want to stand out, earn more credit, get more positive attention, and improve your chances of getting into college, don’t wait for others to get you to work. Do work that will make others take notice.
