Fly High, Aim High
Kumon taught me that making mistakes are not always negative. It is never too late to make them right. Yes, correcting them is tiresome, but it’s from the mistakes where we learn more.
- 12 years old (Grade 6)
As I studied in Kumon, I felt the importance of what it was trying to teach us. One of these is self-discipline which I believe was a big help for me. As what they often said, “Kumon first before play”. I obediently applied this in my Kumon studies. And the next thing I knew, I was able to manage my priorities, especially finishing my school work before facing my computer. I could say it is a great factor in enhancing good study habits. Kumon also taught me that making mistakes are not always negative. It is never too late to make them right. Yes, correcting them is tiresome, but it’s from the mistakes where we learn more.
Being a high school student, balancing my school studies and my Kumon study was truly different for me. But this thought kept me going: if I have an understanding about different advanced topics, it won’t be difficult for me to catch up if we tackle this in school in the near future. This will give me the privilege of spending lesser time in studying math, and then having more time to spend with other subjects.
Imagine a baby bird wanting to fly high. It learns to fly little by little through perseverance and guidance. If it could fly a little, it could just see the ground below. But if it flies high, then it will be able to see the beauty of the world and appreciate life more. The feeling of achieving something that you have desired for a long time and achieving its benefits is just priceless!
