I used to study by trial and error.

I would try a study technique and it’d either work or not. I’d get good results or bad results, I’d learn from it, then I would go back and try something else.

To be honest… IT SUCKED

There are a few reasons why studying this way was unsuccessful:

1.  My results weren’t consistent


2.  I didn’t have a repeatable strategy that I could use


3.  It was really, really stressful

But how else are you meant to find the right way to study?

You need to know:

Let’s jump in and find out.

Reverse Engineering

Tony Robbins who is an amazing personal development guru has a great quote:

“Success leaves clues”

Tony Robbins on why you don't need to study by trial and error

You can either study by trial and error and struggle, or you can find someone who’s been there and done it. You can reverse engineer their process, and learn from it!

Studying the approach of others can be a lot more helpful than studying by trial and error. This is because:

  • They’ve been where you want to go, they’ve done what you want to do and you can reverse engineer their approach, and learn from it!
  • It enables you to fast track the process, getting you where you want to go a lot easier than if you were to do it on your own.

Find a Mentor

The key to reverse engineering is to try and find a mentor.

This is what I did in my own life. I saw the mentors around me in my life and followed their example.

When I was in year 12 my soccer coach at the time was a fifth year Law student, he had done extremely well and I was able to model him and actually reverse engineer his process.

This is the point:

You can either study by trial and error and struggle. Or you can find someone whos been there and achieved that success you’re striving for.

This enables you to get to where you want to go, so much quicker than doing it on your own.

This is where Art of Smart can help.

We’ve got an incredible team of teachers students and mentors that have been there and done that. They’ve done exceptionally well at high school and their killing it at university and in their careers.

Not only can you work with them and reverse engineer their success and principles, but we’ve also done that on a macro level.

We’ve interviewed over 2000 students that have achieved ATARS over 98

We’ve done this to understand the step by step process that it takes to achieve success in the HSC so you don’t have to!

Don’t worry, you don’t have to study by trial and error anymore.
