Number 7 Be Consistent - 10 Things Court Reporting Students Must Do
As I was saying. So if you eat too many donuts then you will see results. And those results might not be totally awesome. In fact, they might suck. Your waist line will expand until you are as big as a house. A very large, 5 bedroom house. With lots of unused gym equipment in the basement.
The same thing goes for everything in life. Whatever you do consistently, you will see results in. Whether good or bad or productive or destructive or fattening.
Take shaving, for example. If I don't shave, I see results in the length of the hair growing on my face. I tend to look a little bit more dangerous and my wife hates to kiss me and my children run in fear. My dog, at least, is oblivious. But that's beside the point.
My point is in order to become a court reporter you have to be consistent in practicing on the steno machine. Practice every day. even on weekends and Christmas. Practice when you are hungover. Or better yet, skip Happy Hour altogether and practice until your little nubby fingers bleed.
And don't play hookey. Playing hookey leads to losing motivation in school and subsequently quitting. Remember: dropping out of court reporting school doesn't pay very well.
Let me drive my point home. If you skip school all the time, you are only hurting yourself. If you attend school every day you will see positive results. I promise. That's the way the universe works, folks.
If you type your tests instead of waste time on Facebook, you will achieve your goal a lot sooner. So stay in school, kids. Type your tests. Listen to your teachers. Being a court reporter is awesome and I want that for you if you can just make it through school.
And finally, if you eat donuts too much you will get fat.
