Reflect on your Kumon journey for the past year.

Set achievable goals.

Since you already know what you have been through and what you want to achieve it becomes easier to set achievable goals Aim to reach KIS, five years advanced, or even better, completion by the end of the year. Remember, with the right attitude towards learning, anything is possible.

Be specific in coming up with your resolutions.

Being specific helps you determine what you need to do to achieve it – both in the short and long run. Instead of saying, “I will not be lazy in doing Kumon,” opt for, I will answer my worksheets every day,” or I will submit completed homework.”
