Skip to 0 minutes and 7 secondsWhile watching the video, I got distracted by my phone. I left it on the table. And while I was getting messages, my phone went off. So I kept looking at my phone instead of the video.

Skip to 0 minutes and 21 secondsWhen I watched the preparation video, I realised that I always have my phone next to me. But I should put it in my back to avoid distractions. The video also tells you about what you want to study, and that's a thing I do quite well. At home, I decide what I am going to do for the day. So as soon as I get to the library, I can start right away with the things that I want to do. I also learned a lot in planning my study times. I should always include breaks in the study in between so I don't get exhausted.
