2. 用法 - Learn how the slang is used.

Go Super to Listen Go Super!

If you want to do something well, you have to focus. You can’t read a book while you’re talking on the phone, for example. Or do your grocery shopping while playing a video game. Or drive a car while doing, well, anything else. It’s not only impossible, but it’s also dangerous!

No, to do something well, you must put your mind to it. If you put all of your attention on one activity, you’re more likely to be successful than if you do several things at once. Is your homework difficult? Just put your mind to it and you’ll get it finished. Are you having a problem at work? If you put your mind to it, you’ll work it out. Are you unsure of how to tell your parents that you’re moving away? Take some time to really put your mind to it and you’ll find the right words.

Singer Justin Bieber believes that you can do anything, as long as you put your mind to it. And he’s right. You can do it!

What’s difficult for you? When you put your mind to it, are you successful?

This lesson is really helpful for people who try to do several tasks at the same time. Therefore they don’t reach it and instead of put one’s mind to it they just spray their energy out and waist time. Let’s be more attentive to everything we do.

I want to achieve many things but since I don’t put my mind to a particular one, I cannot achieve any of my goals. I have many things to learn from this lesson.

This is not nuclear science , we all know that with a disperse mind the chances of success  are slim .  What  we know about the great achievers  is how  hard they have toiled to accomplish their dreams , they have put  100% of their minds into action towards the set goal.

the more you put your mind to somethings, the more your happiness or success increase..

I find it really difficult to put my mind only to one thing,but whenever I do it the result is surprising…I do agree with Justin Bieber.

How can I put my mind to something when my mind is putting to many other things?!!!


Indeed I can do it! :D


When I’m at work I don’t usually think about my personal things and vice versa! ;)

Actually women are able to do a few things at once. If I am not like that I guess I couldn’t have my position in my company. But surely in case the problem is very serious we have to put our mind to it, that means to concentrate and focus on its solution. 


I think the example of Justin Bieber is not good, this guy doesn’t have a crystal shining fame. Especially lately.
