The brain has two modes, those are focussed and diffused. Both are equally important and essential for learning.
You can practice the Pomodoro technique to make the most of the brains two modes. You can do this by working for 25 minutes and then taking a break for 5 minutes. After 4 sessions you would have completed 100 minutes of work with 15 minutes of breaking.

Mentorship is perhaps the quickest way to take your skills to the next level. Look for an expert in the field and reach out for their help.

Do this by giving good examples to help the person you are teaching understand it quickly.
All the information you are absorbing when learning something new must have some meaning to you. If not, it will be forgotten very quickly.
So, in every bit of knowledge you consume, try to make it relatable to your everyday life. For example, instead of memorising a formula, think about h...

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
