If the script's good, everything you need is in there. I just try and feel it, and do it honestly.

But it seems to have worked for me, so far.

Ellen G. White

I was a terrible student. Still, I managed to get into college, but my daydreaming threatened to sabotage me. I used behavior modification to break the cycle. I started by setting an arbitrary time limit on studying: for every 15 minutes of study, I'd allow myself an hour of daydreaming. I set the alarm.

It was terrible.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
