Because learning is so fundamental to our work, we just have to be great at grasping the necessary things quickly. Moreover, we somehow have to make them stay in our memory for long periods of time so we can retrieve them whenever we need. This is however, easier said than done, as we often forget even to lock the door in the morning, let alone remember about all things relevant to our work.
That’s why it’s always about effective learning and seeking out what else can be done to foster it. We are often tempted to try complicated techniques that promise us immediate and brilliant results but how many times did it all really make us brilliant?
Effective learning can be really easy
Fortunately, there are some wonderfully simple ways to become an effective learner quickly – but not because they will do some mental miracle, but because they are fundamental to how our brain works. Perhaps the reason we overlook the great power they can give us in learning is that they are so evident.
In this infographic we will look at the 4 tried and tested ways to speed up effective learning that are as simple as ABC:
- 6 reasons for forgetting which in fact, can often be effectively dealt with;
- inattentional blindness, or why we fail to notice things right in front of us and how it impacts learning;
- the spacing effect, or one of the most brilliant ways to memorize information for long periods of time.
As soon as you start using the power of your brain and understand the patterns by which it works, you can instantly achieve more in less time and with less effort. These 4 ways will make you great at learning precisely because they explain how the real capabilities of your mind might be used more effectively.
