How to Improve Studying
"Learning new information isn't helpful unless it can be recalled later. Anything that increases one's memory power increases access to everything learned."
-Richard Restak, M.D.
There is no learning without memory. The more you can enhance your memory, the better you will be able to learn. Learning is not a destination, it is a continuous process. Think of your memory as a gym. The more you work with it, the more you will get out of it and your memory will improve.
Before you study anything, make sure that you have a strong "PIC" (Purpose, Interest, Curiosity) in mind. You also want to take breaks. Our mind can remain focused only for so long before we become unproductive and tense. When you return from a break, you will feel refreshed and do more work in less time. Every 35-40 minutes take a break. A healthy break can be taking a walk and getting away from whatever you're working on to give your mind a rest.
Get an overview and analyze the material that you have to cover. Mark out all the areas that you need to remember. Make images for key concepts and create an image vocabulary. Then create a memory system that will work for each section and store the information. Record your systems and go through them a few times to make sure you have all the content in your head. Your memory has no limits. The only limits are the excuses and judgements that you may place in your own mind. If you choose to believe in limits, you will live a limited life.
That is all for now. Thanks for stopping by and I will see you again soon.
