How To Learn Anything Faster – 5 Tips to Increase your Learning Speed (Feat. Project Better Self)



hey guys it's practical psychology here
and in this video Daniel from Project bet herself is gonna give us five
amazing tips on how to learn faster I hope you guys enjoy every single one of
us is either learning something new at the moment or is planning to do in the
future who is playing an instrument learning a second language drawing or
maybe learning how to code in the past he must depended on learning new things
they had to learn more effective ways to hunt and learn how to make better tools
so they can have a higher chance of survival we see that learning has always
been an integral part of our lives so it comes natural that we spend some time
learning how to learn here are five tips that you can use to lap your competition
and leave your friends wondering how you learn so fast
number one deconstruct the skill and implement the 8020 principle it is a
concept developed by Italian economist vilfredo pareto which explains that 80%
of your desired outputs will come from only 20% of your inputs well the exact
ratio of varies from situation to situation you'll find that 20% of people
in your life will lead to 80% of your happiness 20% of your customers will
drive 80 percent of your sales and 20 percent of your learning methods will
lead to 80% of your results when it comes to learning it feels like there's
so much we don't know so it's easy to jump around everywhere this will only
lead to wasted time what you want to do instead is to focus on one or two things
that will drive the middle for what you want to achieve and devote most of your
time practicing those things for example if you want to learn how to play the
guitar instead of focusing on strumming patterns notes on the fretboard
hammer-on pull-off techniques you should only focus on learning the basic chords
and transitions between them because that will give you 80% of the results
and in 20% of the time you'll be able to play the songs you wanted number two
have a laser-like focus and use the Pomodoro Technique
to learn quickly it'll be important to commit your full focus and attention
when you're researching and practicing your skill these days that's easier said
than done thanks to our short attention spans and constantly buzzing devices to
help you stay focused start using the Pomodoro Technique the Pomodoro
Technique consists of shutting down all external distractions and fully focusing
on the task for short period of time usually 20 to 25 minutes and then taking
a short break of one to five minutes I've learned coding from scratch in four
months by using this principle my daily schedule was 12 Commodore sessions each
spending around 25 minutes of focus State and five minutes of rest and after
every four sessions I would take a longer break the Pomodoro Technique
produces amazing results because our brain is more receptive to new
information when we're focused when you look at it it's basically common sense
more focused in steeper connections number three learn by doing immersion is
by far the best way to learn anything and as research shows it turns out that
humans retained 10% of what they learned from reading twenty percent of what I
learned from audio-visual 50% of what alert when they see a demonstration up
to 70 percent of what they learn when they practice what they learned and up
to 90 percent of what they learn when they use it immediately try to remember
how you learned to play soccer ride a bicycle or swim instead of
watching tutorials or reading a textbook on how to do something the way to learn
faster is to get your hands dirty and gain experience through making mistakes
number four be persistent unfortunately many of us give up before or during what
Seth Godin calls the dip Gordon says that although it's important to know
when to quit many potential winners don't reach success because they quit
before the dip according to Gordon five reasons you might fail to follow through
are you run out of time and quit you run out of money and quit you get scared and
quit you're not serious about it then quit or you lose interest and quit
psychologists have also studied what's known as the transition cycle when we
experience the opportunity to learn something new we enter what many people
call the honeymoon phase this is where we experience releases of dopamine is
ryx perience new things in other words we're hardwired to appreciate and seek
out novelty because it makes us feel good once the honeymoon phase is over we
experience the dip and our progress begins to Plateau or diminish this is
when most of us quit the reason why this is important is that if you can predict
the dip is coming when you're learning something new it's easier to fight
through it because you know deep exists and it only lasts
it's temporary number five get enough sleep sleep plays a big role in our
ability to learn new information and skills when we are awake new situations
and stimuli can prevent new memories from consolidating in our minds but when
we are asleep we're better at creating new memories one study from a German
research lab found that sleep helps our memory formation most if you know you
will need the information later in fact some scientists believe the brain can
actually change its own structure and organization this is a theory called the
brain plasticity theory and it suggests those all-important structural and
organizational changes in our brain take place when we are asleep without
adequate sleep we have a hard time learning something new because our brain
doesn't have the opportunity to review and absorb the new information when you
get enough sleep while you're learning a new skill you'll be able to consolidate
those memories faster and make fewer mistakes overall so to recap break down
the skill and use the Pareto principle practice the 20% that will give you 80%
of the results focus deeply when practicing the skill and use multiple
Pomodoro sessions learn by immersing yourself and actually doing the skill
you're learning watching or reading is not enough be persistent and follow
through the deep where majority of people will quit and finally get
adequate sleep to help your brain store all the information and prepare you for
the day ahead leave a like below if you liked the video and make sure to

  4. So the pomodoro technique is useless for me

    Cause I dont need it.

    When you dont waste your time on facebook and whatever.

  5. First of all I can’t learn all you started talking about faster πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜‚

  6. I was using the pomodoro technique on my own. I was feeling a little bad cause i thaught everyone else could stay focused for a longer period of time. Glad to hear it actually is a recognized technique.

  7. Sniff cocaine and study all night Word by word phD Done now time to pay off the large student debt smoke crystal meth stay awake all day

  8. I feel like school should teach us how to learn in various ways and follow up with events or challenges that we may have an interest for….wait they already do that. unfortunately it’s filtered out by public shenanigans
