I have never seen anyone successful who did not have a plan. I believe this is a key to success. Knowing what you want to achieve in your future will give you a clear way to your final goals. If you cannot answer the question 'What do I want to do?', then you have chance of achieving anything significant.

Read the following passage then choose the best answer to each question below.

The dustbin is full to the top with coloured plastic. In fact, it is so full that it is difficult to put the lid on. But the Strauss family, who own this dirty, old dustbin, are very proud of it. Why? Because it contains all the family's rubbish for a whole year!

Two years ago, this family read an article about plastic bags and how they cause pollution and harm sea creatures. They decided to stop using plastic bags completely. Now, when they buy food, they reuse their own bags each time. They recycle as much as they can - glass bottles, plastic bottles, paper, cardboard, cans - and they simply do not buy things if they cannot recycle the packaging.

The family are keeping a record of their lifestyle on their website. They hope that other people will read it and reduce their waste. If everyone recycled a bit more, it would make the environment better.

Read the following passage then choose the best answer to each question below.

Daniel Tammet can speak eleven languages and can solve difficult maths problems in seconds. Despite his wonderful abilities, Daniel has had difficulty learning to communicate and understand other's feelings.

Daniel's skills and problems result from a mental condition that makes it hard for him to communicate with other people. Daniel is thirty-five now, and life is easier for him. But when he was a baby, he used to cry a lot. At school, it was difficult for him to read body language or make eye contact, so he could not understand how others felt and never played with other children, or with toys. Numbers were his only toys.

To Daniel, numbers have colours, shapes and personalities. This allows him to experience numbers rather than calculate them. For example, when he multiplies two numbers together, he sees two shapes. They start to change until a third shape appears. That is the answer.

Because of his special skills, Daniel can do things that many other people cannot. He can copy a picture accurately, and he can plan a book about his life without writing down anything. However, he also realises that he cannot do many things. He knows that he is difficult to live with because he cannot understand how others feel. He admits that most of the time, he has to behave as if he shared their feelings. Despite these problems, he is slowly learning how to express more emotions. He says that when his cat died, he understood sadness for the first time.

Now Daniel no longer wishes to have a normal life. He is using his talent for good purposes. He usually gives lectures, has written three successful books, and takes part in many research projects. Some people say that he is having the same effect on them as great scientists do.
