Human intelligence and brain power can master any learning discipline with the use of the right tools, approaches, or what we learn correctly. Practically, anyone can learn anything — with the right technique. Better learning approaches can make the process a fun experience. Now, aim to learn a new skill to improve your career this year, some of these habits can make you phenomenally successful.
1. Super learners read a lot
As Joseph Addison said, “Reading is to the mind what exercise is to your body”. The reading experience takes us to the expanse of space, time, history, and offers a deeper view of ideas, concepts, emotions, and body of knowledge. As a matter of fact, phenomenally successful people find reading as an opportunity to improve their lives, careers, and businesses. Elon Musk grew up reading two books each day , consistent with his brother. Bill Gates reads 50 books per year. Mark Zuckerberg reads a minimum of one book every fortnight . Information is the new currency, reading is the best source of continuous learning, and knowledge is valued more than that of currency.
2. Super learners pursuit knowledge
Super learners value the process of learning. The “ongoing, voluntary, and self-motivated” pursuit of knowledge is important for their maturity. They always venture for consistent improvements. They keep mastering new principles, processes, worldviews, thinking models, etc. “A learning journey may be a curated collection of learning assets, both formal and informal, which will be wont to acquire skills for a selected role and/or technology area,” writes Sonia Malik of IBM. Learning is an investment that sometimes pays for itself in increased earnings.
3. Super learners adopt a growth mindset
Developed by Dr. Carol Dweck that circles around the belief that learning improves intelligence, ability and performance. According to Alvin Toffler “The illiterate of the 21st century won't be those that cannot read and write, but those that cannot learn, unlearn and relearn,” a writer, futurist, and businessman known for his works discussing modern technologies. Motivation could make you more readily able to see opportunities to learn and grow your abilities. The ability to keep access to knowledge and applying it when necessary can significantly improve your life and career.
4. Super learners teach to retain knowledge
A study tells, when learners teach others, they retain approximately 90% of what they learn. Teaching others what you know is one of the most effective ways to learn, remember, and recall new information. It’s one of the most unfailing ways of building a sharper memory.
In a mental model coined by the famous physicist Richard Feynman also known as the “Great Explainer,” was revered for his ability to clearly illustrate dense topics like quantum physics for virtually anybody. A better thanks to learn, process, retain and remember information is to find out half the time and share half the time.
5. Super learners take the right diets
eating many foods related to slowing cognitive decline — blueberries, vegetables (leafy greens — kale, spinach, broccoli), whole grains, getting protein from fish and legumes and selecting healthy unsaturated fats (olive oil) over saturated fats (butter) is the best way to keep you sharp and nimble. Fruit and vegetables combat age-related oxidative stress that causes wear and tear on brain cells,” says Dr. Gary Small. if you intervene early, you can slow the decline process — it’s easier to protect a healthy brain than to try to repair damage once it is extensive.
