Some of the worst advise a professor had given a class was to set realistic goals. Bulls***. Each semester my goal was straight A’s, and even though I never got straight A’s (got close but a B would always sneak in there) I got a higher GPA than if I had set realistic goals. I remember students would say they would get a A in this class or a B in this class. They already made up their mind on what they would be getting. Don’t do this. Your goal is straight As and you can do it! And if you don’t do it, you will at the very least achieve a higher GPA than otherwise.
