Learn to learn…

if you you want to do great things with your life.

Think about it. We were taught how to tie shoelaces as a kid – now we take it fore-granted. And is it not ridiculous that we know more about how to work a toaster – or iPad – than how to work our brain? And how do we learn quickly and effectively?

Dr Grace Saw decided to find out in Brisbane recently. Here she talks about what she discovered …

She talks about her experience learning how to do Mind Mapping and Power Learning.

Right now have you a book that’s been gathering dust since you bought it before getting on the plane last year?

Try this:

  1. Spend two minutes reading the dust cover and chapter contents.
  2. Take a blank pice of paper and dump everything you ever knew about the topic without looking at the book again.
  3. Grab a little post-it note pad and flick through the book for just four minutes – time it. DON’T read anything that looks interesting, but DO pause just long enough to put a post-it note on it. In other words, flag anything that looks worth returning to later.
  4. Set yourself three study objectives – things you want to achieve with the book in the next hour.
  5. Write a study plan for the next hour on a piece of paper – just list a start time, a stop time, a break time and when will you review what you gleaned in the hour.
  6. Now start your study hour. First re-read the entire book in five minutes! Superficial? Yes! but just do it.
  7. Now start all over again and read the book for the third time in the next 35 minutes. Pace yourself – this time focus on the first and last paragrapgh of each chapter – or, if the book is well-summarised – go read the summaries. Highlight about 60 keywords during this time.
  8. Now STOP after the 35 minutes. Take a break for two minutes. Then make a mind map of what you highlighted. Take just 15 minutes for this. DONT cover any new material.
  9. Finally, take five minutes to dive back into the most important lesson you gleaned in the time so far, and read it slowly. Update your mind map, and you’re done.

Try it. You’ll be amazed.

How Mind Mapping helps you with Motivation and Goal Setting

Share

mind mappingThe world has changed. Things are hectic and everyone is in a rush to finish work-so your motivation for big-picture items like “get that MBA” suffers…

Mind Maps are a great help with motivation. They get the ball rolling and keep you focussed. Mind mapping helps you organise your ideas during the process of goal setting and then helps keep them in front of you–so you achieve more.

Here’s how to weave mind mapping into your goal setting to boost your motivation and achievement.

Write Down your Feelings and Accomplishments – How do you feel about your accomplishments?  Mind map them. You will have a number of accomplishments in your life. Mapping keeps them visible and memorable.

Set Personal Goals – Having goals is more than important. Knowing what your goals are is even more crucial. Map those goals. It helps you with the process of goal setting.  It helps you follow them, because they are more memorable. As you track your progress, cross the old goals off one by one. You will feel a sense of accomplishment.

Know your Reasons – What is your reason for wanting to accomplish this goal? What exactly is on your mind? Mapping is a splendid way to unlock your inner reasons.

Take Breaks –  Doing this helps to reduce your level of stress, and it harnesses your inner creativity. Research shows that taking breaks actually SAVES time. It saves more time than it uses!

Mind maps are a great way to boost your motivation, get going with your goal setting and speed the achievement of your personal goals.
