To do list is attached to organize your tasks and priorities (from the open Internet source).
My son is 3 years old, and he is learning reading in Russian. It is our native language, and I think that's great for everyone to keep it. Knowing another language develops your brains, makes memory much better, opens the horizon, and colors your experience into bright colors when you are talking to native speakers. Don't even start about the career. If you know more than one language, you have great opportunities. You can continue this list, of course.
My son knows letters and can read simple words and syllables. He can even read simple sentences. However, when he sees long text (4-5 sentences for him is pretty long), he starts refusing reading. He can do it! But a long task or a hard task (at least, how he perceives that) makes him feel stuck and unwilling.
It actually doesn't matter if that's Russian or math or science. It can be any task that you think is long, hard, confusing. It doesn't even matter how old you are. Even adults deal with that. I know I need to do that. I know it's hard. I know it's boring. What should I do? The key is to organize your task and break it apart into smaller steps. Plan your small steps ahead!
And guess what? It is not necessary to complete your hard task at once. Plan ahead, reserve some time to do small steps, and you will not feel so stressed out.
I tried that with my son. Instead of reading the long text at once, we read sentence by sentence with breaks for playing. And he doesn't feel the length of the text anymore:-)
I tried that with my students. If you want to succeed in learning or exam preparation, start ahead, plan your tasks, break the hard one into smaller steps. Don't stop! And you will see the results!
