I hate learning. If you’ve read more than a few articles on this site, you’re well aware that your grades can have a significant impact on your ability to continue playing baseball. College coaches searching for players who will be effective on the field and eligible to play prefer players with excellent grades. But what if you despise studying? How are you expected to do well in school?



Here are a few suggestions for you.

  1. Study more frequently.

Yes, even if you despise studying, we are advising you to do it more frequently. Because you can study for shorter amounts of time if you study more frequently. For example, don’t wait until the night before the major test to study for three hours all at once.


It will be much easier and more efficient for you to study for that test for 1/2 hour each night during the week leading up to the test. You won’t have to study for as long in one session if you start earlier, and you’ll also learn more.


  1. Work in a group.

Studying in a group can help you learn more and can be more enjoyable than studying alone.


Obviously, the key is to study with individuals who are prepared to put in the effort and who are at least as knowledgeable as you are. You can ask the others questions if you feel stuck. When someone else in your group doesn’t understand what you’ve already learnt, explaining it to him might help you remember it better.


  1. Be realistic when it comes to distractions.

When you despise studying, it’s simple to become sidetracked by everything around you. It might be difficult to focus on what you’re studying when you’re distracted by your friends, music, mobile phone, internet, or even a ball game. You will have to study for much longer if you are distracted, which is something you do not want to do.


Only you know what truly distracts you and makes studying difficult. However, you must be open and honest about the distractions. If keeping your phone next to you causes you to focus on texts rather than testing, you should switch it off. If you find yourself on the internet every 5 minutes while attempting to write an essay, you should disconnect.


Begin with small bursts of distraction-free time (such as 20 minutes) to observe how it impacts your learning. If it helps, try studying for extended periods of time without being distracted.


  1. When you get the opportunity, apply what you’ve learned.

While it may not always be easy to find ways to apply what you’ve learned outside of the classroom, try to find ways to apply, discuss, or teach what you’ve learned to others. Use new vocabulary words with your family, use math at the store, and talk about things you learned in history class, to name a few examples.


More regions of your brain learn what you study when you apply information. You’ll notice that you recall things more readily and for longer periods of time outside of class. You won’t have to go through anything again.


  1. I hate learning – Make a request for assistance.

Wouldn’t you contact your pitching coach if your curveball started missing the strike zone all of a sudden? You’d ask someone about it if you’re having difficulties with the footwork you’ll need to convert double plays faster. You are aware of your flaws on the field and are working to improve them. It’s no different in the classroom when it comes to flaws.


They’re just another project to work on. People learn in various ways, so you may require some (or a lot) of assistance in some of your lessons. You may be hesitant to seek assistance because you don’t want to appear foolish. But consider this: what if all you need is a little support to achieve the grades you need to play baseball at the school of your dreams?


Isn’t it a bit arrogant to never ask for help? Are you ready to give up all you’ve worked so hard for? Ask a trusted friend or family member to assist you in obtaining the support you require to succeed both on and off the field.
