Making the Most of Education

Just some tips that might help you out.

Everything around you is a resource
Use all your resources to learn and do big things. Invent something. Use everything you have to its full potential, because everything's a blessing.
You don't have to be negative. Every situation will have its limits. It's how you use what you have effectively that matters. If you can do well with a little, you'll know just what to do when you have the whole darn kit.
Strive always to improve
Give yourself a break sometimes
Get things done early, educate yourself faster than they'll educate you. Don't stop learning a subject til you know it, and use all your resources to know what you learn. That means your teacher's lecture, even if it's 2 months from now. Pay attention and gather all you can gather.
It's okay to let your mind take a rest from things and focus on one specific thing.
Eat pistachios
Listen to good music
Help others
Ask for help until you're an expert
Expert doesn't mean you're better than anyone. It means you studied until you learned.
It's not forced on you, it's an opportunity.
Don't take no for an answer when they say it can't be done. Either learn why it's impossible and understand it or pursue it until you reach its limit.
Take no for an answer when they say they can't help you. No one likes being bugged. Wait and ask later when they might be able to help you.
Explore fields of knowledge
Don't loose your heart to your mind
Get with your friends to go do something awesome like building robots or joining our team.
Don't reinvent the wheel unless you know you can make a better one.
Make everything as simple as it can be but no simpler.
It's not about the endgame, it's about how you get there. Let God decide your endgame and you decide if you're gonna make it a good ride.
You'd be surprised at some people's generosity.
You'd be surprised who you can persuade if you try. You can persuade school boards, organizations, and governments.
Doesn't matter what your field is, FIRST Tech Challenge will make you better at it.
Doesn't matter how old or young you are. Everything's impossible if you don't try to do it. Nothing's impossible until you follow it to its end.
Not everything that is possible is beneficial.
Just keep going. Don't let the past weigh you down, unless you invent a time machine, you can't change it, so improve now instead of mourning then. Don't forget the past, learn from it.
Meet No One. He's smarter than Anyone.
Use your potential to invest in the potential of others.
