Few things on television deliver goosebumps like the Olympics do. Politics aside, the stories of these elite athletes are as remarkable as their achievements.
Undoubtedly, Olympic athletes have incredible skill. More importantly, they train hard. 10,000 Hours hard.
What if you trained 10,000 hours for the SAT or ACT? How would you perform?
I always find it curious when I come across students that call themselves bad test takers. As I talk to these students more, I find out that they play a musical instrument, practice a sport and/or maintain long term personal relationships. Basically, they are skilled in something that has required time, dedication and persistence. Test taking is a skill that can be learned through time, dedication and persistence. Even if you think you are a bad test taker. Not every athlete is going to win a medal at Sochi, and not every test taker is going to achieve a perfect score. But those that train hard to master a skill will be rewarded with achievement. The Olympians of Sochi are an inspiration to us all. They show us that it takes hard work to overcome obstacles, perfect a skill and accomplish goals.
