Inspirational Quotes about Productivity

  • "Even the smartest college students suffer academically when they use the Internet in class for non-academic purposes, finds new research by Michigan State University scholars. Students of all intellectual abilities should be responsible for not letting themselves be distracted by use of the Internet,... All students, regardless of intellectual ability, had lower exam scores the more they used the Internet for non-academic purposes such as reading the news, sending emails and posting Facebook updates."
