General Instructions 1) Take your own education seriously — by setting aside time for it. 2) Begin with generally improving your reading skills and keeping a notebook (see “General Education,” below). 3) “Early to bed, early to rise” isn’t in the Bible, but it’s a great way to study — go to bed at a decent hour and do your study first thing in the morning. 4) Turn off the TV. General Education 1) Begin the habit of keeping a learning journal in which you jot down ideas, facts, questions, material that you’re learning.
