Why is it that when you're having fun, time seems to fly by, but when you get to school it seems the clock has stopped or is moving backwards? Simple: when you enjoy something, you don't care how long it takes.

Here are four ways to make school more enjoyable:
  1. Set goals for your grades and achievement. If you have a vision and you focus on getting there, you'll move at a different pace (Phil. 3:14).
  2. Create personal competitions in your classes and with your homework. As you work on each project, motivate yourself with a challenge of some kind. Set yourself up against the clock, your previous grade, or even a fellow student.
  3. Get involved in something at school you really can look forward to. It may be sports, a club activity, cheerleading, school council—in short, do something you like.
  4. Go to school each day with a good mental attitude. Your mind and your decisions control your emotions. Proverbs 23:7 says, "As he thinks in this heart, so is he" (NKJV). Decide each day, "This is the day the Lord has made—I will rejoice and be glad in it" (Ps. 118:24)!
