DEWJ52 ー How to make more time to study English
Need to make time to study? I know the feeling. Life gets busy, and suddenly things like English just don’t get done. We have a sub group called “The 5am Club”. Get up early, get stuff done. You get the idea. But why 5am? Well, it all started in 2010. I’d just started by masters (I did it online) and suddenly found myself having to work a full time job and study a completely new subject at the same time. To be frank, I was struggling. Work was busy… And we had a crying baby at home. Studying wasn’t happening. So I needed to find a time where I could study every day undisturbed. My wife and son got up at about 6:30 every day. Which made 5am perfect. Of course, in the beginning it was tough, but as I got used to it, study progressed. As study progressed… I got more motivated to get up. Which in turn helped me get more done, until eventually I finished my masters. Listen to the full story in today’s podcast.
