Finding ways to improve scientific writing and academic productivity.

Develop and change

We cannot change skills but develop them. And we all have skills. But such development depends on our behavior. Therefore, to develop some skills we need to change our behavior.

Consider a college student. Anyone entering college has the ability to succeed. However, as a professional thinker, unless he develops the skill to think better, faster and deeper, his success is not what it can be.

The greatest reason for a college student not to develop his skill to think is his behavior. A behavior where he is constantly distracted with his smartphone or mere conversations instead of paying attention. He has the skill to think, but to develop it, he needs to change his behavior.

This happens with any other skills we want to develop. And the best way to change your behavior is clarifying who are. And you are who you want to be. Keep that in mind and think.
