Pause your CAT Coaching or self-prep for a moment and consider this.
You know the basic numbers – over 2 lakh aspirants will appear for the CAT along with you. But who will you be competing with?
When I see a young parent worrying about her kid – “He is behind the kids his age”, I actually smile.
So, that is where this race begins – so early in our lives.
Instead of getting better, the focus is on doing better than others. It also generally means doing the same things as others for most part. And that is the surest way of losing (yourself too :). What works well for others is unlikely to work well for you.
The more important question invariably is whether YOU are improving and getting better than you were yesterday. Is your CAT Coaching or CAT Preparation helping you do that?
If it is, well, that’s your best chance indeed. Else you are just worrying about things you can’t change.
About the author: Deekshant has sleep-walked through several 100 and 99.9 %iles in practically every section of the CAT. That he is a cricket fan and he writes okay is evident from most of his posts. 1000s of our students swear that he can motivate almost anyone to double his/her percentile through very simple yet powerful inputs. And that’s why every MBAGuru student has direct access to him via mail and Telegram. Oddly, he somehow also finds the time to write songs professionally. And yes … almost missed this … he is an alumnus of IIT Delhi & IIM Cal
