We’d all like the ability to be able to learn anything. How about the ability to learn anything – fast?! Web Anywhere have created the following five tips and infographic to help you do exactly just that! Whether you’re an employee, student, learning complex systems or anything else, practice these tips to ensure you’re taking information in quickly and the right way!
1. Stop multitasking
Multitasking causes new information to go to the wrong part of our brain. Moving back and forth between tasks wastes productivity as our brain can’t pay attention to multiple tasks at the same time.
2. Don’t reinvent the wheel
Find someone who already master the skills you are willing to learn and model the path they already followed. This way you can learn new things in a shorter period of time.
3. Let your mind wander
Schedule some quality time to let your mind wander, as healthy breaks allow your brain to rest and avoid creative blocks. Going for a walk or having a long bath are some good examples of mind-wandering.
4. Repetition, repetition, repetition
The more attempts you make to learn something, the more the brain reinforces the necessary skills until you can do it subconsciously.
5. Relate new learning to prior knowledge
Allowing your brain to create connections between new information and what you already know will help you remember it later.
