Learning is a part of life. We learn whether we want to or not. It can be seen as something hot-wired in us for survival. Most kids pick up language as easily as they breathe air. We learn to avoid places that shout “Danger!” However, are we learning WHAT we want to learn? Are we learning WHEN we want to learn? We can’t just rely on observation and unintentional learning if we want to get more in life.
So here are some tips to learn what and when you want to learn.
1. Focus. Put all your attention in whatever is happening, you’re hearing, or anything being shown to you.
2. Keep the gears in your mind working. Question what you’re focusing on. Question the process and the idea or theories behind what’s being presented.
3. Incorporate and apply when possible. Eat up whatever you’ve learned and try to use it as soon as possible in situations that are relevant to you.
If you keep these three things in mind, you’d not just be great at learning but you’d also be successful in what you do. Good luck!
