Little is Better, well when it come to learning!
I always find peoples view on just about any subject really interesting because believe it or not we don’t know everything. I know we all think our ideas seam to be the best thing since sliced bread but look at it from an outside view.
We are only as smart as the information we put into our minds!
I wanted to keep this post short for the first day in 2017 by offering my view about becoming the best person you can by absorbing smaller chunks of knowledge and developing more successful skills at the same time. I just want to cover three.
- Everyone learns in a different way– some people learn very well just by listening and writing (notes), while some people need to do the learned material or activity (hands-on) before the brain can put everything into memory (commit to memory). There’s a whole process that details this and I will get a link so you can understand the Learning Stage.
- Implement your newly learned skill– Now that we have learned a new skill, new method, or new something in general what do we do next? We do it, try it, and practice it right? A great example that should clear up any confusion could be: You learn a new way to create a picture in photo-shop that conforms to Facebook’s advertising policies so you pick the subject of your ad and create the text part of the ad then the last thing is to create the picture and title. I know not the best example but to become great at something, you’ve just learned, you need to practice, practice, and practice it again. This is the Action stage of the learning process and most people never quite get there because they are consumed in the research (gathering stage) part of the learning process.
- Refine your Actions for optimum results– I think the words (Rinse & Repeat) is what we say in the business world. Testing different angles and methods with everything is how to get the desired results we call this (Split Testing). I like to refer to it as the Refinement Stage. Yea once you start to implement a new skill or activity the issue I see with a lot of my students is no follow through! Maybe that’s the wrong term but if you set out to attract some new bee’s to your bee hives you might try planting some trees around the hives, right? I don’t think bees would be attracted to trees but you need to try. After you plant the trees you find out that, darn the bee’s don’t like trees! You don’t just give up and you don’t use vinegar. Look back at what you learned about Honey bee’s and use the flowers suggested and keep planting them until your overflowing with bees!
The cool thing about all this is we have been doing it our whole lives with every part of our lives but for some reason when we start something out of our comfort zone we loose our minds!
Why we over complicate things is just another mystery of the human mind. Lucy for us there are many ways to conquer, defeat, and end up on top. When posed with any situation in life if we just step back to gain a better perspective of the moment while reviewing the options I know with out a doubt you can’t fail.
