Overview

This is a revision ten editions in the making! We pulled out all the stops to commemorate ten editions of teaching students how to reach their peak performance and succeed in school and life.

  • Learn how habits work and how to replace counter-productive habits with positive habits that will help them in college and beyond
  • Learn to integrate all learning styles for maximum success
  • Learn how to seek out support and resources on campus for challenges new students face, and remain persistent in pursuit of their goals
  • Relate what they are exploring now to future success on the job
  • Strive to cultivate the qualities, habits, and skills of peak performers
