School homework is misunderstood by most students. Yes it is to further your understanding about a particular subject, but I never saw my studies as an end unto themselves. I saw my studies as a preparation for the rest of my life.
Learn to study, and do your homework–for living life.
I have read books on how to be a better husband, father, and businessman. I have read books about being spiritually more in tune with my Creator. And when I began to be more serious about my writing I read books on writing; I went to several authors for their advice–I did my homework.
Whatever it is that you want to accomplish–DO YOUR HOMEWORK !!
