Knowing vs Doing: The crux of your preparation for CAT


Most of us KNOW the right things to DO. KNOWING is easy in almost every sphere of our life, including preparation for CAT.

We know the importance of discipline. We know the value of focussed effort. We know the need for motivation.

Knowing is so easy that we know which bowler should have bowled that final over. We know which batsman should have been sent at 2 down in that match. And we know which player should have been substituted in the final 10 minutes of that game. Of course, we even know what Congress could have done to avoid ending up in shambles!

We KNOW what the leader should have DONE even better than the experts. So, at times, even knowing isn’t simple. Just thinking that we know is. The doing part of knowing isn’t simple or easy. And DOING, of course, is way way tougher.

And to DO really really well, we need to both KNOW and DO.

You KNOW that you should be making today count. And not be worrying about the last AIRCAT’s scores. You ought not be giving into any of the so many digital distractions. But are you DOING something about all that you KNOW?

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 🙂
