"Courage is the most important of all the virtues because without courage, you can't practice any other virtue consistently."

- Maya Angelou


How to achieve success by design in college and in life is the main message of this book. 

Use your college experience to transform your life and achieve your full potential. 

Learn strategies to score high while studying less and develop lifelong skills to achieve financial freedom and happiness. In this book you will learn:

How to develop and streamline your study habits to achieve more in less time
How to develop a growth mindset and turn every failure into an opportunity
How to prioritize your priorities and enjoy your free time
How to use SMART goals to achieve every goal every time
How to prepare and win on your tests and quizzes
How to develop lifelong skills to create a life filled with happiness and success
How to become a leader and make a difference in the world

Study smarter- not harder - and enjoy your newfound free time to have fun and dream about the life you could have using the strategies in this book. It is the only book that walks the talk and that provides inside knowledge so you won't make the mistakes I made - you'll graduate faster, score high grades while studying less, focus on lifelong skills, save money and get the job that gives you purpose, meaning and fulfillment.  

Education is about discovering who you are and where you want to go. It is not only about grades and getting a good job. Yes, a good job is important but so is your health, happiness, a supportive environment and a desire to get up in the morning excited about the work ahead. The strategies you'll learn in this book will help you achieve success in school and in life. 

I am proud of you. You've come a long way. You have the courage and the will to achieve anything you want with hard work, a smart strategy, determination, and a growth mindset. There is every reason for you to do well if you understand that you are more than your zip code or your environment. In fact, to achieve success it's about changing old beliefs that prevented you from achieving what you want into new, winning beliefs that will set you for a lifetime of success. This book is intended to help you achieve success and become the best human being. 

Professor Margarit's passion and purpose is YOUR success and happiness. She knows first hand what it takes to achieve success in college and in life. It is more than hard work. It requires specific strategies and mindsets to transform the ordinary into the extraordinary. Are you ready to transform your life? It's all up to you now.
