Key Ideas

The Helsinki Bus Station Theory

The Helsinki Bus Station Theory broadly means that our creativity, life and career paths may seem the same as we begin, but our uniqueness and real creative work starts as we branch out eventually, discovering our niche, and being masters of our work in a unique way.

Staying on the Bus

If a person 'stays on the bus', gives his best and goes the mile in his work, in time, he will start to see his work shine.

Mastery requires Consistency

Consistency leads to eventual success, which may not be visible in the start (just as a start of bus journey from the same familiar routes) but as life branches out, things start to take shape.

Re-work and Revise

Re-working, re-visiting, and revision of your learning and your creative piece will make all the difference.

Note Taking Cues

When the instructor says 'this is important' or 'note this', or gives a non-verbal cue that the content being discussed is important, it can enhance the student's note-taking. They can also listen to the cues to help them organize their lessons.

Revision of notes

Revision of notes, done right after the lecture, is a crucial step so that any missing lesson ideas can be filled using our short-term memory.

  • Hand-written notes are better than laptops as the latter can be distracting, with students checking email or playing games. It also distracts nearby students.

  • Laptop notes are inferior as they are verbatim and shallow.

The Levels of Resolution

An essay exists at multiple levels:

  • The choice of words
  • The formation of sentences
  • The arrangement of sentences in a paragraph
  • The arrangement of paragraphs in a logical progression, beginning to end
  • The essay as a whole

A good essay works at every one of those levels simultaneously.
