SPEND TIME WITH WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW AND GO THE EXTRA MILE
If you want to grow and add to your knowledge, you should spend time with what you don’t know and do more than others are willing to do. Don’t take the easy path and spend too much time on what you already know. Yes, it feels good to dwell on the familiar things you know, but real growth lies in tackling the difficult stuff you don’t know.
Instead of doing the bare minimum to meet the requirements, spend time with that difficult assignment. Spend time with your homework and try to master the work. It might mean looking up extra resources about the subject, or it might even mean doing two or three more questions than the ones that your teacher assigned.
