- How do I focus on one thing when there are so many distractions around and I have a lot to do and no time to do it (I am still in school so think little siblings and AP calculus)
- I struggle at focusing when reviewing terms and definitions. Do any of you have suggestions to help me study?
- What are some best time management tools?
- How long can you learn by yourself without getting distracted?
- How can I keep motivated?
If you have more time, read another part. If not its okay.
Whats the point of study more if it doesnt improve your quality of life? Or the worst just forget what you learnt later?
Since in the morning the surroundings are quite and mind is fully charged also the body is super productive.You should try this out once and you can feel the difference.
Thanks for your time
Have a fabulous day!
If you find something you really want to study and set the number of minutes you plan to do it, your biggest problem will be putting it down.
Learning in this time when we are clobbered with so much information that is not beneficial, is not true.. that varifiable information, facts, and learning for ourselves is more valuable now than it ever has been. (P.S. I would say reading a reputable daily newspaper that follows journalistic standards like the NYT or the WaPo ("just the facts ma'am.") is the best kind of learning there is! (Maybe 2nd to books??)
Create conditions for a study: fresh air in the room, good light in the evening (the darker the light, the sleepier you get).
Also, print out (or just buy) a weekly agenda and write in the tasks/topics you are willing to study.
To learn how to prioritize use the rule of “three nails on the wall”:
Write a to-do list for a day.
Pick three of the most important tasks.
Imagine that you hang each of them on a nail on the wall.
Start doing the first task, when you finish it, “take it off the wall”.
You can start the second task, that’s your priority now. Then third, and so on.
– To be able studying more in less time you need to prepare your body for such pressure. Eat healthy food, drink enough water (to avoid a headache), sleep at night for at least 7 hours.
(The knowledge you may try to get studying at night won’t be processed by your brain on more that 50%.)
– Use timers to concentrate on the study (for a few hours) and make 15-20 minutes breaks in between.
– Break big projects into smaller digestible parts.
– Be consistent.
– Make a mood board. Place the pictures that would motivate you to get to the end result; as well as your weekly agenda.
Make study schedule and stick to it.
Use tomato clock to stay focus.
Divide study into smaller part and use any slot to complete the not-so-important parts. For example, in learning foreign language I used to make vocabulary cards and focus on pronunciation and grammar rules. I will first learn rules in short time and make cards at lunch break or waiting for bus.
- How do you deal with guilt and shame when you really want to get out of bed and get everything done but you physically are not able because you need the sleep in order to recover from the previous day? This usually happens to me when I have a day off and need to use it to meet upcoming deadlines and catchup on things.
