Reading is one of the best sources of continuous learning. It allows your mind to grow, change and make new connections.

Highly successful learners read a lot: Elon Musk grew up reading two books a day, according to his brother. Bill Gates reads 50 books per year. Mark Zuckerberg reads at least one book every two weeks. Warren Buffett spends five to six hours per day reading five newspapers and 500 pages of corporate reports.

Learning is a journey, not a destination. It's a process of self-discovery, fueled by curiosity.

Learning is an investment that usually pays for itself in increased earnings. And in a fast-changing world, the learning skills quickly is becoming a necessity.

Adopting an adaptable mindset (or growth mindset) means cultivating the belief that you can improve intelligence and performance because they are not fixed features.

This will have a significant impact on your motivation and on the process of searching for new opportunities in life.

Thomas Oppong
"We all have enough brainpower to master a new discipline — we use the right tools, approaches, or apply what we learn correctly. Almost anyone can learn anything — with the right technique. Better learning approaches can make the process enjoyable. "

Research shows that we retain approximately 90% of what we learn when we explain it to someone else or use the new information immediately.

Sharing with others what you've learned is one of the most effective ways to learn, and it also tests your knowledge, by assessing your capacity to transfer it to another. This process is called the “retrieval practice”.

Our brains naturally decline if we do nothing to protect them. With the right diet, we  can slow the decline process.

The health of our brain can significantly change how your record, process and retrieve information.

IDEAS

Spending too much time on one topic can be counterproductive. It is better to switch and rotate between topics, something called ‘interleaving’. 

The technique has an in-built momentary confusion once you switch back and forth, resulting in a better long-term recall of the material.

  • Color Code. Assign color to common themes in your lectures, when highlighting information.
  • Organize your notes by compiling handouts, putting tabs, writing neatly, using outlines, to make your notes appealing.
  • Study the Graphics. Use charts and graphics in your textbook to easily remember information.
  • Draw pictures or figures to accompany the information you're trying to learn.
  • Watch documentaries or videos to get a bigger picture and expand your knowledge on the topic you want to learn.
  • Draw concept maps to easily categorize a certain subject. Illustrate pictures relating to each subtopic.
