I really enjoyed reading The Straight A Handbook: The 50 Most Powerful Secrets For Ultimate Success In And Out Of The Classroom by Dr. John Chuback. The author shares his ideas about success in and out of the classroom and workplace to help others become their best self. I am excited to share this book with all of you during Teacher Appreciation Week because this book is a great teaching tool for all students and I truly believe it will inspire them to strive for success and to achieve all they want to do and more in life.
“Almost everything taught in these pages are ideas and lessons that arose from real life experiences he encountered on becoming a successful surgeon, entrepreneur, and inventor. The essential message is that these are proven and reproducible steps that will help anyone ascend great heights. Dr. Chuback believes that if one were to master even 10 of the 50 skills outlined in this book, a student’s success would not only be extremely likely, but practically inevitable. Chuback has used these techniques with his three children, two of whom are currently working to receive a law degree and one of whom graduates from high school this May.”
This book is such an easy read and I love that each skill has it’s own chapter. I am the type that loves to write notes to myself in a book and this will be one of those books that I keep on my book shelf and refer to often. I have utilized one of the 50 skills that I have read in the book and I look forward to incorporating more of the ideas into my everyday routine.
The first skill that I decided to incorporate into my life is Using Silent Solitude To Achieve Greatness. This is chapter number 31 in the book and it has inspired me to take the time before the kids wake up (about 30 minutes earlier than I normally wake up) and I sit in my room and enjoy the quiet. Instead of frantically waking up to start the day that is filled with a lot of things to do not only for myself but for everyone in my household, I have decided to take the time to sit for a few minutes and enjoy the silence. I do not look at my phone right away, turn on the television or put on the radio. “This is a time for complete silence. When you create a truly silent environment, you will truly have an opportunity to think clearly.” I have to say this is the time when I think of my best ideas because I am not distracted by any auditory interference. I leave a pen and note pad by my bed so I can write down the ideas that come to my mind.
Thank you, Dr. Chuback for writing this book and I not only encourage people to read this book for themselves but, I love the idea of gifting this to young adults and graduates of any age.
