About This Class

This course is all about helping you improve your memory, increase your focus and other tools to help you become a better learner. We have abundant memory and capacity to focus yet there are so many challenges that abide us from learning to our fullest potential. 

A survey made by neurologists has proved that the storage capacity of our brain is almost 2814749767106560 bits which is around 2.5 petabyte i.e. it could be enough to play a     4K UHD (3840 X 2160 pixels) video for 300 years!

A German phycologist Herman made a research on forgetting habits of humans.. And in his result he concluded that in 20 minutes we forget about 42% of what we  learnt and by the end of the month we forget about 80% of what we learnt.

Another survey claims that when a adult without attention listens something, one can remember up to about 20 minutes which is 12 minutes less than what our ancestors could because of our fast paced life and reliance on technology.

This course will help you increase your memory, concentration and retain more knowledge using practical tools and methods.

1. Introduction: Are you a student? Are you a high-school student, a university student, or a lifelong learner in a wholesome, what is the one biggest challenge that all learners in common phase? Just take a moment to think. All right, I agree with you. It is nothing else but memory and retention. All of us face a challenge that we read so much, but remember so little. Well, what if I could tell you that you can literally premium? Emily, did you know that there are actually memory athletes, people who learned your way into how would they can remember and memorize a much, much better. This research done that found out that David, two groups of people, the one that way, the memory athletes and the, the other that, but the general people, they found out that when each of them are given 72 words, remember in 20 minutes while general people remember only up to 36 words that train memory athletes learn 71 words and these are techniques that you could learn as well. Many of us complain about limited ability to remember that I can only remember certain things. Well, let me see you. This memory capacity is 2.5 petabytes put into reflection what that means, it is equal to watching 300 years of Forky entity movie in the highest resolution without any stopping. So the fact is that we have a lot of memory, the challenges, we have not learned how to utilize it in optimum via welcome to this course. In this course I'm going to share you of how you can utilize your memory in the best way. Hi, I'm Emma. Seo success, was IT International, a TV show presenter at the same time, I'm a motivational speaker as well as a team transmission quotes these. I am a student myself in my undergraduate liberal, and I spend 1 tenth the amount of time most people do get my grids are one of their top in my college. I'm going to share you some wonderful ways in which you can think of memory to the next level. Furthermore, we are going to discuss other tactics for you to study smarter and not harder, in which you can optimize your time you're spending studying and still expand your knowledge. Thank you so much and I'm so excited to see you in this course may be to get the, uncover the meds and open up the unlimited possibilities of our memory. Thank you so much, I'm so excited to see you in the course now. 2. A quick test: Before we go ahead into this course, I want to do really quick exercise for you just to give you a context and reflection of what this course is all about. Let's try to read this format. I'm going to do it and you do it too. If you can't read this, you have a strong mind. Only smart people can read this. It doesn't matter in what order the letters in a word are. The important things, is that the first and last letter be in the right place. And I always thought spelling is important, right? Why do we do Spelling Bee? Now? Why do you think this happened? Why do you think that even though this letters at all messed up, we had those words got right. Well, one big reason that we gone towards right is because we have a pre requisite memory of how woods function. We know how it sounds, and for the same reason, we are able to interpret it well, I just wanted to give you an example of how powerful your memory is. Beyond letters. It can interpret words independently as well. How does this make sense? What is the scientific ground behind it? We'll talk further, but let me also show you one another example. Let's try to read this. This message serves to prove how our minds can do amazing things. Impressive things. In the beginning, it was hard, but now this line, on this line, your mind is reading it automatically without even thinking about it. Be proud. Oh yeah, only certain people can read this, right? Please forward if you can read this. Well, here's the thing. Everyone got to be proud. Oh yeah, because we know that everybody can read this. How is that possible? Again, the same thing. We have a pre-existing memory of how goods function. And we can have a similar memory of how you want to study any single thing. I just wanted to give you to show you a pile of how powerful our memory is before we go ahead and delve deeper into this course so that you can have a better context as well. Now, we have a lot of scientific stuff, lot of practical, applicable stuff coming up for you. I want you to be very, very excited, very, very pumped up. Because this course I've put a lot of effort in, if you remember the last course, I put more effort into creating this. And I hope you have a great time into it. So hope you study well if you have any questions, feel free to ask me in the discussion sections. See you in the next video. Bye. 3. Myths & Importance of Memory: Welcome, welcome, welcome idea friends. This is going to be a really long course, but before we get into learning about what memory is, how it works, and all that stuff. Before we get into learning the practical strategies that I'm going to show you in this course. Let us make sure we know what some myths out and what is the importance of memory in today's world? Where if you have ID and all that stuff. So this video is going to be all about the myths and yet the importance of memory. First of all, the common myth is that we use only 10 percent of our brain, which is not true, but human capacity to use is unlimited. We can go out there, learn as much as they want. It's just that we need to have the right techniques and tactics. Now, what does not ignore notable is that over time, less on board, we have impacting to the memory due to different events that happen in our lives, due to our food eating habits. But at the end of the day, the fact remains same. That it's not true that we use 10 percent of our brain only. The other thing is that we are common, which they are more likely to remember things if you do it ourselves. Now, many people considered true whenever talking about practical education, all that stuff. But research Today's see is my defense that your ability to learn can be similar to why you experience. If you go out there and learn using specific tactics, you're going to talk a lot about those tactics in this course. But it's important to understand that you can learn something even if you're not doing it. Obviously by doing it, the ability to retain it is much, much higher, but it can work the other way around as well. The other thing that's very, very common, V here, and it is untrue that the men and women learn differently. I mean, they have different memory capacities and all that stuff, which is, again not true. You see there are certain body parts that a human, that a male and female different has differently. But we need to understand that a memory and retention skills are almost same for men and women because we come from the same origin, the either same stuff most often all that stuff, beam is much similar. So the argument that men and women learn differently is much, much false. It is the society that has framed it. So, and that's what the doubling time resource school confirms to us about human memory skills. Furthermore, it is very common that we hear that every person learns the same bed, which is not true because the aid type of human intelligence and everybody is intelligent and the only ASAM understand logically, some understand the other way. So there's this common myth that all of us learned that seemed B, which is really, really untrue. The other month that we have, is that your your memories fixed people say that you have a certain memory skill which is given to you when you are born, and which is completely false because there's so many researches, so many ways in which you can lift your memory, can train your brain to think deeper, think better, which we don't consider when you make the argument that your brain cannot be trained, your beam can metering, and that's what this course is about. Furthermore, it is a common myth that we hear very often that performance is always a sign of learning. That you forget good creates. It's a sign of learning that if you perform an experiment well, that's a sign of learning, which is not true a game because many times and the person is performing, there might be external stimulus that might be playing you don't. Like, I might have someone died my family and then I have exam tomorrow. And at that point of time because the stress is overlapping, why memory? I can't I might not be able to give me a 100 percent, which we do not consider when we make the argument that performance is always a sign of learning. The other thing is that if you make notes, you are more, more likely to remember it, which is so true that when you make notes, yeah, I'm more likely to remember it. But if you don't make the nodes the right way, mighty offense, it is even possible that your redemption liability decreases because all your focus while the teacher is saying or you're watching a video is in making notes. Now if you're only focused into the nodes, how when the void that you focus on your ability to synchronize what you're hearing from any of the mediums. You also need to understand that, you know that if you go yourself into learning, then it's important to know that making notes as a patient, but you need to learn it in the right way. We have talked about this in the later portion of this course as well. First of all, my dear friends, we have a common myths that we are good judges of how much we remember. I mean, some people believe that they have very good memory and all that stuff. But which might not be true if people you know, they're talking to, they're not good at remembering people's names. And, you know, it can be related to the exams and all that stuff as well. But that's what I wanted to let you know. This is a very common myth that all of us Behold. Furthermore, we have heard that forgetting is the enemy of memory, which is not true memory forgetting in fact, they say that forgetting is, is a process of human memory and learning. Barbara Oakley talks about the possibility of, you know, I focused and diffused years of mine that we can learn better if we go into diffuse state of mind occasionally. And then we have focus states of mind. So it's important to consider that forgetting is that they are part of the learning curve that humans have. Also my idea of trends, it also, you know me, I've always heard that you need to have a different experience if you want to remember something for lifetime, That's so true. If you have a better experience, you can remember something for a lifetime. But if the Adelphi around, if you use the techniques and tactics that we have talked about in this course or that's prominent. It is also possible that you learn something for the longest amount of time, even without a unique experience, right? Also my defense, we talk about cramming as an ineffective way of studying, which is not true because it's an exam coming up tomorrow. And you can cram the right wave. Traveling the right way. It can work as a benefit because you see if you have an exam coming up tomorrow days, a subject that you don't think is useful for you in the long term. It is not aligned with the long-term vision that we'll have. But still if you're compelled to study it, and if you even don't study it, you know, with all deepened understanding, it's okay, right. Can cram around. You can push in all lighter and do it. Obviously not advice, not ideal, but it is possible to do it and that's warranted what I wanted you to lung. Also my defense, you have commonly heard that your memory is genetically linked to your success, which is not true academically as well as a lifetime's, you'll see memories and internal integral part of learning, at least in academies, but also in real life, you need memory for all this different stuff and definitely talks about its utility and importances. But at the same time, my dear friends, it is not directly linked with academic success because there's subjects that require logic and that the same time in real life scenario, it is much, much, much less important because most of the factors such table online, obviously people's names and so many other things you won't be able to find every single time, but with Google, but, you know, but it's important to understand is that in information terms, you can refer to the wonderful variables that we have today. My defense, we have also learned that, you know, you have a common myth that we can always just on a membrane that if I have memorized yet, well, even if I use the ticks, I'm going to remember it in that item. Now, this is the fun part. Your memory is uncertain overtimes in the list where it has a lot of stress, it innate characteristics might be depleted or disturbed a little bit, which is a very, very common phenomena, which we don't talk about very often. That is a possibility. And I want you to know that we have learned about some formulas, myths that we have about, and memory and all that stuff. Now let's jump into the other segment. Let us discuss a little bit my dear friends about the importance bad memory hood, because in this word that we have IT, social media, all these various tools to search about all these different things. We're saying well, by doping, need them when you have, have we can just check everything overnight. I mean, over the second, third are tiny and second we can learn it on, let me explain to you. Number 1, importance of memory is building relationships. You know, if you remember a person's name, if you remember the background, if you remember what they shared to you, you're more likely to create a deepened connection to them anytime in the future because you know who they are, you know what they do and all that stuff. So it's important to understand that no memory is playing always a very, very crucial rule into shaping your relationships in different walks of life no matter what that is, their name, background, the conversation you had with the lowest one they likes and dislikes. That's important and we forget about it very often. You know, you have heard of people forgetting anniversaries and that does not go out well. For a double my defense memory plays an important tool into keeping your brain active. You know, memory is the ability that we haven't human as human. But if you don't practice it overnight, you know, as a generation goes ahead, they're willing to lose their memory skills. And that's why if you see the amount of things that older people years ago, we're able to remember. We cannot in fact, the researchers that say that 3000, 4000 years ago, people were able to remember much, much, much more. Now my dear friends talking further to you about other important sets of memory, let me also share to you how it preserves such a crucial rule into decision-making. Now, we made a decision based on the learnings that we had in the past, the experiences, no matter hiding people, no matter taking business decision, no backing music, career decision, no matter deciding which question to answer in an examination when you have a limited time, we made decisions based on our previous learning, previous experiences, and that's how it works out for all of us. Also might be a fence. It's important to understand that memory plays a very important tool into our overall life conversation. When you're talking to people you remember phone to talk about last time the experiences you've been. And basically it also plays an important role into your life. It seems because you see so much of my life revolves around a possibility to remember the beautiful memories that we have. Just imagine. If you don't have memories, well, I wouldn't say that the life on sampling of wholesome would make a lot of stems because I love to remember the experiences that I have had in this life. So these were some importances of memory that tens and hundreds MOOC. And I agree with two. When you see that you know, the vv, v we believe that it is supported superior might not be too other than profession that required a lot of memory skills. Like if you are treating a patient, you can just go to Google and find out you need to know the right medicines and stuff and those professions. A completely different thing, right? But if we talk in general terms, I agree with you that memory is over-hyped. And with all these IT that we have today, we need to work a lot on it. We are working a lot on it. But by the time that we come up with a solution that is groundbreaking and transformational. Well, we need to live it out, so we need to make until I start my own school for your gave, you need to make a synchronization abounded. Go out there. This is the importance of memory. Thank you so much and also remember these myths. So next time you think about it, talk about it. Remember that this is just a myth and might not be true in to yield Sensex. So that's what I wanted to show you in this video. We have a lot of stuff I've recorded. It took a really long. It is going to take really long to record this beautiful goals for you. Put a lot of research time, go out there, learn this and please make sure to discuss whatever thoughts you have in the discussion section might be offense and Babylon matter. You are watching the smart study CDS and I'm so excited to see you in the next video. Bye bye. 4. Memory Palace: Welcome back My dear friends. I hope you had a wonderful time learning about this simple yet very, very effective technique of that strike you. Got it right mnemonics. In the last video, we talked about different effective way of using mnemonics. So what mnemonics are, and we also looked good at a lot of examples of how it can be applied in real life to take our learning to the next champion level. So in this video we'll talk about yet another very, very, very, very, very, very, very powerful way for you to take your memory to the next level. Now here's the fun part. This method that I'm going to share you in this video is not just to go, not just working, but this has been consistently used by almost all the world champions in the world to remember certain things like the World Championship of memory, you'd have to remember decks of cards. You'd have to remember sequence of words. And all of them most possibly most often use this wonderful technique called memory palace. So what is a memory palace? Well, in simple terms, memory palace is a palace of memory. I like simplifying things. A palace of memory. Well, this is what I mean by that. Okay. Memory palace is a palace, something, uh, please. You know, you have very well associated with, could be a homeschool office, anything you have been associated with, and then you try to use the cues and physical setting of the, please remember, you need to remember the new information that you are trying to learn, right? So what basically happens with memory palaces, you put different things into different segments of the room in terms of your memory and try to connect it with the thing over there so that you can remember it better. Now I know you have some confusion about this, but this will only be able to clear it when we talk about it when I show you some examples and that's how it's going to work out. I'm willing to give you particular 1212121 steps of how it can be used. And therefore, that's how we are going to learn. So let's talk about the history of this wonderful technique before memory palaces also know that the method of loci and this was first to fall introduced. It is said to be introduced around 2500 to 3000 years back by a very wonderful famous performer. And his name was Simon, he's right. This is the fun part. Introduce generation performers for us as singers and dancers, right? But in the old times, what, where the permanent performers, where poets read, they used to write poems and sing in front of a home auditorium and people used to dance and enjoy it like crazily, right? They also used to call it coliseum like a globe. You know, there's a lot of extracts of it even left right now. So what basically happened is Simons was going in those days to give his poem to crowd of thousands of people in a town. And all of a sudden when he went to the stage, there was an earthquake or some mishap have we are not yet known about it. And the whole auditorium collapsed and there were thousands of people in it. So they went up and down. Some people got hurt over gender. And people were having a hard time understanding how to escape the air, to escape. And at this moment in time, nice to found out how took a mental picture when he entered of where the people there and direct them towards the exit to exit segment and many of them left out and that's only found on, okay, Remember pleases really, really, well, That's a superpower that we have. And then we use this Simon's method, the memory palace with some picture of the place is also now associated with the new bits of information that we're trying to remember, and that's how we take the information in. Now, this is defined by my reference images of what you are trying to think must be really, really fun, right? There must be feeling either a ha, ha, ha or tt when you're associating any word, any new information when the memory palace. Now because our brain tends to remember extreme things, it does not tend to remember general things. Extremely happy, extremely funny, extremely beautiful, extremely dirty. That's what I've been, is becomes alert and takes the information really easy when any of those states had acquired. And if you know, if you have watched sell-off homes, if you load the medalist, you know, PATRIC gene from med list, you know what memory palaces, because that was a very important part of the movie they showed about REM, they talked about it. And once you understand what memory palaces, we'll also delve deeper into a specific ways in which you can find this out. But also I need to tell you, I need to let you know how powerful this technique is. Even see solo used, it, uses very famous philosopher if you know about it. And at the same time, my defense, I found this really interesting. Though software was normal journalist, right? And he was event to the World Memory Championship. And he found out, he found out that these are all these old people trying to remember things and you tried to talk to them, ask them and realize these were all people with normal memories, but they train their BREEAM to remember long, long, long stuff. And that's when. Founder, someone who was a world champion, former world champion. He went to him, they asked him how it's working out. He learned a few techniques and just for fun, just to see how periods, just to create a good report on the standard one that I've participated as well. He participated in the Memory Championship and guess what? By luck or not? Obviously not by luck because you memorize things really well. He literally became the Welsh have enough memory. And that's when he came up to give a TEDx talk about the power of simple memory techniques. I'm, it's very simple and every single person in the world can find out how it is applied. Learn and execute it will execute with it. Now, here's the fun part. Okay. Let's say we talked about physical venues can be remembered using memory palaces. But what even beautiful is that you can also remember at the same time, my dear friends, it really, really different things in pounds of movie venues that you are really good associated with or video game every state, let's say you have very playing Pub G all the time. You're very well associated with Pub G. You can set the memory palace in putting key, right? Or let's say you play any single thing all the time which has a visual stimulation of any signal, please. You know, you can realize, you can okay, know that, okay, this is how it is, this is the place and then you can associate the different things and different parts of the place according to the sequence. Okay, You go ahead, this is where the battle is. This is where the first tool is. This is where the roof is. This is a cupboard is in the room. And that's how you can put different things in your brain and associate. Now, I find, I found out that, you know, many students who used video game where News found it really easy because they are very well associated with it. They play around it all the time and it is more fun to them than physical environment. So yeah, I very much encourage you to try that out is when also it's very important to answer, to understand that is whenever you are making a memory palace of different segments, different places, make sure you are taking in big, big pieces being so you're not taking a bottle as a part of a memory palace, right? We're not taking a simple small chocolate box is a part of your memory palace. Take bits of information that are big, that are visually, you know, checkable really well. Pick those bits of information because only if you pick those bits of information, my dear friends, it will be easier for your brain to consider it n, because the size is big and you walk around when you take a visual walk from one place to another, That's when it is going to work out for your media plan. I hope you're getting a good idea of what I'm saying, right? Also, it's also important to understand that don't overlap your memory palace. Let's say you are having a, whom you as a memory palace. Alumina is a memory palace. Don't overlap two things over the same side, right? Let's say this shade I'm sitting in right now is a segment. There is a part of my memory palace, but what I want to make sure that I put only one substance or would you rather than two? Because if I put two substance over gel, it's going to be really, really challenging to remember. My brain is going to get confused either to process the first bit of information or the second bit of information. Furthermore, my dear friends, it is also important to understand that it takes time. It's a very powerful method. But as you know, as I talked about, you know, every good thing takes time, right? Remember the first time you tried to walk you sell to your face, right? The first time we tried to speak, use factored. The first time you went to school, you cried, the first time you did everything. It did not go as well as it was supposed to write, but eventually you got better and things got right. It's so important to understand this idea of tents. And if you've understood this concept right here, we can further go on to discover step-by-step method, okay, one after that though, what steps are you supposed to take so that you can build your own beautiful, wonderful home of dreams. I mean, very wonderful virtual memory palace that can help you whenever you need help with. And this is what's amazing. Memory palace if practice well works well in the stress situation as well, because you don't have to retain it will just have to walk over rate. You're not going to forget the distance or the route for you to go for you from from the whole school, right. Or inside your home, where in which direction we're thing is that's really hard to forget because it's an engraved, deeply understood information made right. With this, my dear friends, let me go into a step-by-step method of how you can develop your own memory palace, okay? The step number one, my dear friends is clive choosing a place to hold yearly really well, it is very critical and this is why it's really critical for you to remember, please, that is ready. You are familiar with. It is very critical because number one, you need to have a very good understanding of what elements can be used in your memory palace. I mean, with segment of your memory palace, you have to pick segments in your memory palace, right? This is the LP, this, this is where I place this. This is well-placed. This, and if you don't have good, visually appealing, clear picture of your memory palace, it's going to be very, very hard to retain it when you're trying to retain it, right? So make sure you choose you please. You're well familiar with staff with your home itself. Start with the room or or. As, you know, if you're in a hostile or in a PG, make sure that you have a picture of a place you can start with, the place you live with or what is also alternatively possible that you choose it out, please. That is very, very associated with you, as I said, the playground R or any other player. And if you play FIFA 15, these produce anything that is very, very well associated with you, right? Number one, clear step. No place that will really, really well find length it. Okay, we're starting out this way. Step number two is a root that is very, very, very well associated with you, right? Plan out the whole dude. No. Let's say you are choosing your home. Plan out the route that you're going to start with right from the door of your home to the seat in which you're going to see throughout the memory palace. Make an exact roadmap, right? You'll have many memory palaces, so you'll be able to revise memory palace test a few times. So don't worry about the first try. Give it a try and try to find out the exact root. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, right? Exact rule that you are willing to follow to reach, to move around in your memory palace. Very important. Once again, make sure you have an exact route that you're going to follow. Take a break, think about it. Think about a route that you have been associated with, right? Okay. Yes. Okay. Now let's jump into the other step might be offense. Now you need to decide a list of things that you want to memorize. I mean, that's all we are doing all this for eight. Then when I'm using a place now, memorizing a set that thing. Now, this is what a very good question comes up every single time. What should I put in memory palace and what should I use with mnemonics? I'm going to share this wonderful understanding for you. Now. Memory palaces particularly powerful if you have to remember a list of things in sequence. Once again, a list of things in sequence, because that's the X-Factor with memory palace. It goes in sequence because you go out to one thing at a time, second thing at a time, third thing at a time, fourth thing at a time. And a sequence of 1530, 20 things could be powerful. Lake 10 forms of 10 forms of herbivorous animals, right? 20 types of this. Thirteen Ways to dash, right? 19 steps to x, y zed you getting them going, try to find all the sequence that you want to remember and sequence of information that you want to remember and make sure you create a physical lists for it. A physical list is important. Why? Well, for you to review it, because memory parents putting value, start outputting chunks of information in memory palace is going to be a time-consuming process, is going to be energy consuming process. And I don't want you to be fed up in the process of trying to do it. So yeah, make a list of things that you want to remember right now. This is what you need to do next. Take one or two type after time. Two or one or two items at a time. And visualize yourself pacing those 12 two things, one at a time into different segments of the memory palace. We'll also do a practical later and I'll make you do it, make sure it is. And projects section, you have to remember it. But right now my difference, this is what I want to pick out anything that you have to remember, right? And let's see, you have to remember the sequence of first and prime ministers or whatever that is, right, to start right from the very first Prime Minister right there. And please it, let's say in the door of your invoke rate and then you would let say his name is Tom Hanks. So what you Tom Hanks. So what you do is that see you see a hanky in your door, right? And tells Tom written on it or a hanky that looks like Tommy. Tommy now country is more of a puppy or adopt. You're getting where we're going. Make sure you put one information at a time and try to exaggerate images. That's a very important component when we're talking about memory palace. Try to exaggerate it, make it funny, make it really beautiful, make it dirty. Rate exaggerate is in the form because, you know, an exaggeration is what we remember most of it. That's how RPI this world. We can't question that because that's a part of our beam. That's how we think. That's how we have been thinking all our lives. So go out there, exaggerate what you have to learn, connect it with different places one at a time. Right? Now. Try to make sure that when you are creating this sequence, we are putting these elements over here, CLI, to associate as many senses as possible. What do I mean by that? Let's say you see a hanky Oh, there. You are visualised able to sewage. She maybe you tried to touch it as relevant visualization. That's touch rate. You have tongue. Obviously you can't taste a hanky, but can you smell a hanky, right? Try to visualize it and connect as many sensory organs as possible while you're trying to make a memory palace, right? You do I see two. I'm saying you to do this because it is really helpful for you to remember the information in a long-term, my dear friends. And you have an exact thing to check out. Exact pinky up exaggerated, which is considerable into the system. It becomes really, really easy for your wide breathe to consider the information it. Finally, the fifth step, 90 offense is to add humor of the whole memory palace. I'd segments. So you have different 15 to 20 and mints. There must be a starting point, there must be an ending point. Right? Now we're starting point letting your do. And the ending point is the cheered that you have in your room window that will have in YouTube. Made sure once you have put every single thing in there, go all day and remember everything that was increased aid, just see and try to remember if you find any place which is not exaggerated enough, go once again when you review it, find out where you can exaggerate the image and try to portray it in a more exaggerated fashion. When you put it in an exaggerated fashion as they're shipped to you, your ability to remember it becomes longer because you have more and more and more sensors involved. And it is easier for our brain to consider in more specific information that the general one that we ordinarily do with this. I'll go forward and in the further part of this course, we'll also have a demo using memory palace, but for now that's what I wanted to share to you. Make sure you use it. The memory palace method of looky, very famously invented by simony, is used by one of your favorite characters, you know, Sherlock Holmes. And all of that mean your friend. So go out there and execute it all and remember, make sure good, Well, you're putting those elements in your memory palace, the segments in which you are putting in our belt so that you can remember the log. Thank you so much. I'll see you in the next video where we talk about yet another really powerful way to take your memory to the next level. 5. Mnemoics example: My friends by now VM already known of how powerful our memory is, how mnemonics work, how we can visualize certain stuff and that can be a part of our memory and how we can use the power of visualization to better interpret, to better understand, to be more better in our overall memory itself. So now we're going to look for dumb idea friends into using another bit beautiful technique that you have already learned. Some words using mnemonics and at the same time, the power of visualization to be able to remember so much stuff. I hope this is helpful for you. I am giving an example to demonstrate the power of mnemonics. Okay, Now here's what I want you to do. Okay, let's go ahead. This is what I want you to remember. What is this wrapper? Well, this is actually the different parts in our, in our reading system. That's how they call it. You know, that muscle cavity, nostril cavity, larynx, pharynx, trachea, left trade bonkers, the right lung, left lung anti fog up. Now it might be really challenging to think, to remember in sequence if you know. We can also use memory pilots for it. But let us try a different approach so that you have a variety of things that you might want to choose from whenever you want to memorize something. Now how you're gonna do it? Let's try it. Once I want to retire, once nasa cavity, nostril oral cavity, we just just check it out once nasal cavity, nostril cavity in the same sequence again. Okay. Only cavity pharynx, larynx, trachea, right bronchus, left bronchus, right lung and diagram. I wanted to try to remember it now. Just try to remember it once the whole sequence. We've already got it messed up, right? If you say this once again, let's try it once again. Have a look. Nasal cavity, nostril, oral cavity, pharynx, larynx, trachea, right bunkers, left bond, left main bronchus, and right lung, left lung and diaper Gump. Even if you try once again, until you are a genius, you gone on, you, you're not going to get all of them right. And even if you get all of them right, It's going to be a very challenging thing to do it in the same sequence and furthermore, GTM it for a really long amount of time. So how are we, how can we put that into a longer memory VAB of how can we actually memorize things like this in a longer perspective and the way that we don't forget, well, I'm here to help you with this same idea. Right now what we're gonna do is we're going to find out V to remember this. Now, I'm going to use a movie to give you an example. As an example, you might want to use anything else or a different movie. I'm here to just keep an example. Now, this is a very favorite movie of nine. It's called a three EDF. It's in him be, but it's an English as well available. You can watch the English version of it. I firmly believe this is one of the best movies for any young people to watch before they turned 25. Very amazing, right? So let's go ahead and try to remember it now. This is what I want you to remember. Okay? Mass, nasal, all these other word that you want to remember, okay, remember from Guangzhou of three idiots, right? Nasty nostril of function, literary torments, dot-product left-hand light, like the ICD diagnosis in his lungs. Okay. This is what we want to remember. Okay, nasty nostril of full Su Huang Wu literally torments the plateaus at left and right leg did our diagnosis in the lungs. What this does is that it gives you a sequence to remember for when you can remember sentence like that, right? If you remember, give you an example of whereby we talked about how different planets I remembered and stuff. This is how you can use it as well. This is something I created just right now. To be able to give you a quick example found out just trying to give you a really quick example could be something much, much better. But I just hope you to help to give you a context by what we're doing in terms of this example. Okay, now along with this, there are so many other ways of doing it as well. Let me give you another quick example if I have possible. I did it already for you. Some, another thing you want to understand is this thing, right? I give you an example of this as well. Further, you want to remember that 78 are varieties of different seven to eight sequence of classification of life, kingdom, phylum, class order. Kings play cards on fairly good soft palate. That's much easier, right? You can use a similar variety of things in terms of mnemonics whenever you want to memorize something and believe it or not, we'll find it much, much easier, much, much more convenient, much, much more. You lead peening, most importantly, for a longer amount of time. That's how it is and that's what I wanted to discuss with an example in this specific videos. My friends, I cannot wait to see you in the next video we'll talk about further stuff. Help you get better at your memory. Buh-bye. 6. The Protege Effect + If-Then Approach: Hey, hey, hey, welcome back, wonderful family plus 1 discussing with you in the last video about the power of memory palace. I still believe it is a, such a powerful tool for anybody to take their memory skills to the next level. We've also talked about the very powerful technique of That's right. So remember it, right? We talked about mnemonics and as well. Right now v I get here once again to discuss about the yet very, very, very, very, very powerful technique to learn something. Now, this is rather an effect that is running to our Bain all the time that is really powerful. If you want to indulge yourself to learning any new skill. And the new chapter of studies, the language, Amy, new word in the whole segment is very powerful to learn any single thing that you want to learn. If you apply it in the right way, it can work for you. Basically, my dear friends, I'm here talking to you about the wonderfully powerful prodigy effect. What does a prodigy effect means? Well, in simple terms, the effect means that when you teach something to somebody else, you learn so much about it better yourself as well. Once again, when you teach something to somebody else, you are more likely to remember it. Once again, when you teach something to somebody else, you are more, more, more likely to remember it right now. This is what I'd share you are bringing, let me give you quick scientific background about what they are saying and then I'll delve deeper into understanding how you can apply this, right? I've been actually has something called mirror neurons. What did I just say mirror neurons and what is the function of neutron neutrons? Well, mid-end noodles are simply out Dana beam, whatever emotion, whatever words we get to somebody else, it has deflected back to us. Once again, whatever words we give to somebody is, it's deflected back to back towards that. So if you observe some time, if you appreciate somebody about something, you'll realize you'll feel that you are feeling happy as well. Well, you appreciated the other person, right? Why would you feel happy about it? Well, the simple, effective, understandable scientific answer to this is because of the product CSI effect, because of the main organs that we have in our brain. That's what we give, is what we get is a wonderful, big, wonderful book on this as well. You can check out about the proximity effect, but right now let me delve deeper into it right now. You might be thinking about what I understand. You're saying that I must go out and study and peas my offense, etc. But every single time I get into group study, this is what happens. I have a bunch of fence. We come together with the similar intention that we have to study. You have to study hard, we have to give a 100 percent. We get started with sitting together. We start opening books, we start bringing out books. And then all of us, I did one of the fence share about his crash, right? What are the French share about something that happened to him in school today? And that's rid of conversation gets started. The next seamless we continue talking about it. It passes one R2, R3 are we just seen these objects and the conversations goes on and on and on and on. And by the end of the six hours, we realized that we did anything but group study. So it's good, steady. What you are trying to say is group city ideal at all? Well, my idea of lens, the biggest challenge when it comes to group study feeling is that you don't have a clear agenda of learning. Written agenda of learning. That these are the learning outcomes that you want to achieve out of a group study. Group studies have very powerful method because you are teaching somebody has it. It works on primacy effect. And as I shared to you, if you hear somebody else, you are more likely to remember it, right? But the challenge is because you don't have a specific agenda than just setting to study. Because you are just there to study. You don't know what exactly you're willing to study. Many times, good. Group study turns out to be a complete failure. So yeah, that's what I'd say. You be careful whenever you are talking about, you know, group study and make sure you have a clear agenda. My defense, the oldest, wonderful 2007 study that in detail, you researched about our cognitive ability that when we share, is it true that we tend to remember more and astonishingly yet expectedly for the many scientists, it turned out that the yes, you know, learning is much, much, much, much, much effective, then we're sharing our knowledge to somebody else as well. Einstein said it so well that if you have not, you know, if you can not something, you know, explain something to somebody is in a simple way, it simply means that you're not have, you have not learned it well enough. And that is so, so true because you have wifi haven't learned something really well. If you don't have a clear understanding, will just repeat the words that are difficult for us to answer questions about it. It will be difficult for us to have questioning about it due to which I learning about the subject is not going to be as effective as it should be. Remember once again that whenever you're trying to study and remember the prodigy effect, make sure, to, make sure that, you know, whenever you are trying to learn something, just learn a little bit, go out to obtain and share it. Now, question comes down over here. We're just saying makes sense, but the question is, how can I apply it in my life? I'm macho of how this can be applied. No problem. I'm here to explain it to you. There are two specific ways in which you can apply it. This and this is that whenever you are just sitting to study something, go with the intention that you have to teach this to somebody else and literally have somebody have to do is to maybe pick a friend in your classroom who requires learning help, right? And say, I'll help you, I'll coach you. The whatever I learned. We're going to help each other throughout the semester and pick them out there. And whenever you're studying war dealt with the intention that you have to teach him, right? When you go with that intention simply, there's a lot of things that are going to change because you're intensely focusing on learning rather than memorizing, right? And when you're really learning is authentically understanding or basically happened that after that, whenever you go out there to share Hugo, dare to speak, you go out there. What's relatively going to happen, my defense is that you are going to crack it. I mean, you are able to share trade eval and at the end of the David explaining to him, he's questioning you. You're questioning your teachers about understanding so that you can beat. You will see that your learning outcome has just multiplied and uplifted to a next level. The other second thing that you can do my defense is wowed, They're two crura right? Well, there too cool to go out there to various different websites. So if they are students helping and go there and try to help them solving, there are a lot of questions all the time in these websites about specific subjects, specific teams or specific subject. Go out there and answer those questions in those websites, right? It might be right, it might be wrong, it might be approved, it might not be approved. But your focus is to try to get enlarged into sharing what you have learned so that the other people can be benefited at the same time. Along with this, my defense, I shared you two techniques that are really powerful. Make sure write both of them both very belt, but make sure you have a friend whom you have to really teach too, because that will create a sense of obligation. Then you're going to website and help students that answer. That's a really powerful thing, but that's not going to create our obligation for you, right? While it kid of obligation. I mean, if you don't do it, there's nothing for you to lose. But if you don't help different, you might end up not completing the semester, not able to study real event. So it is, you know, it is he who is dependent on you and that dependency on you create an obligation for you that, okay, you have to get out there, learn really, really well so that you can get back that peachy of friends. I used it and it was really, really, really powerful for me. One more additional step that could be really powerful is that whenever we are learning that tried to visualize that you have to tease this to a five-year-old what IP address? How I'm going to teach algebra, multiplications to a 50 little tasks. The challenge, you know, maybe you have to make some notes. Maybe you have to make it fun, right? Maybe you have to make it funny. Maybe you have literally a five-year-old in front of you. Maybe up data relative a DBA whom you can walk then pH 2. Now, many people underestimate this is going to be very delusional method webhook, how will you go to invoke at all? Well, let me see you this, you know, when you have a five-year-old, you have to explain the whole thing too. It's going to be a real challenge. So it's going to be heels and not just to teach, but to understand yourself in a way that you can teach back to that kids. So what do you need to do next? My defenses that learning of amoeba to take notes while that may be I have to find out alternative way to understand this object. Whatever you need to do, go out there and learn it, and then go out there and imagine that you have to teach this to a five-year-old. That's what Prodigy effect was about. Creating an environment where you think you have to teach whatever you have learned to somebody else as well, right? With this, my dear friends, this is what I'm willing to do and when to switch over to that next video where we're going to talk about a very, very powerful, highly disordered, probably one of the best in this whole course that is going to help you take yourself to a new level in terms of memory, memory skills. And I'm going to see you in the next few. Do VV talked viscous and find ways to implement that technique? Buh-bye. 7. If Then Approach Demonstration: Okay, Welcome, Welcome, Welcome idea of friends of so excited to see you yet again. And in this video we are here to discuss about a very practical approach that they've already learned about. The if then approach about dealing with different distractions that we have. And this is a very powerful method for a few reasons. Okay, the if then method works really well, because unlike most of the ideas that we hear about self-development, about smart steady, It's more like one size fits all. You know, that you use this total in your contexts and it will work for you. Yet, when we do that, There's a basic ground assumption that most people as similar or most people are same, or they share the same values and characteristics which might not be the same in most of the cases, right? Due to which we see that it is not applicable for many people. Now, the if didn't upload the beauty of f then approach is that it does not bind you. There's no specific format. These are specific for Mike to help you, but it does not bind you. It's not about this is what you are supposed to do. It's about what you can do for yourself, you know, find out what you can do for yourself. That's what the narrative of the if then approach is. It is more constructed, it is more helpful. And therefore, because it has these characteristics, it is much, much more applicable and transformational for any student who is trying to use it. So let me introduce you to what their if-then model is already you have known it that if X situation happens, then I'm going to response with XYZ response, right? So when we have the if then approach ready, let us find out about how we can utilize it. I'm going to give you a quick example, a few quick examples so that you can get a context. You'll find this thing in the project section as well so that you can consider putting it out there. And then you can also use it for yourself after getting a print out of it or no, maybe you're using it in your computer itself for editing. Yeah. So let me show you what the ISDN approach looks like. Let's say the if case is I get urge of using social media that you're studying. And you get an Earth that ideally want to use social media, ideally want to find out what my friends are doing. And you don't want to see what's happening over there. Now when we're talking about social media, this something really critical to understand. The social media mechanism works fairly well. Every people love social media because the randomness it has, you know, you are, you get random outcome like if you refresh the news feed once you have no idea what's going to come up. And that's the very reason most people use. Social media is a specific term to it. I can't remember it right now. But you know, it's like it's like a slot game in the casino, right? You don't know what's coming and that's, that's what keeps you excited. Now, similarly is the case, you know, it is not fit for you while you're studying unit is just traction is distracting factor very often for you. But the question is, how do we deal with this challenge? Well, it's, it's much, much simpler than you think they might be. You know, first of all, when you find out that these are problems social media we have defined already the if, right? Now we need to go out there and find out what then is. Let me give you an example of Q, example of the dense that we can have. It could be that I'll bring out my favorite book, or I'll stack deep breathing, or I'll watch Shark Tank video. Now here's what I want you to understand. The fundamentals resistance gap between the if and the Ben must almost be negligible. Let me explain to you what I mean by it. Just imagine that two cars over there, right? If the car such similar, then it's going to be a tough decision for you to make a choice. And if you're habituated to using one of those guys before, you're going to definitely try the new one if you'd like to try new things, all go for the old one, it's not going to be that big of a dilemma at that point of time, right? I mean, it's going to be a dilemma at that point of time. But on the other case, if you're upgraded from a Honda to a Mercedes, whichever choice between though, the odds of you choosing Honda are very, very low because you know that Mercedes is much, much better, right? So you go on to choose Mercedes. Here's what I want you to understand. You want to make sure that when you challenge yourself and then mood the happiness, not a happiness, but the gratification you get from the eighth is equal to the gratification you get from the, right. I really love watching Shark Tank videos. So it's going to be much more easier for me to switch from Facebook to shock time we'd use rather than shifting from Facebook to studying, let's say, right? Or if you, if you like playing, you need to find out then bridges productive, you're likely to in books, then you'll start reading a favorite book for a while or. It could be that you will start deep breathing rate. I like deep breathing on myself. It's good to be very much dependent on your own personality type. One case, and that's how it is going to work in practical sense. Okay, let me give you a few more examples so that we can have a better context about the subject. If I feel sleepy. If you feel sleepy by the study, what you gotta do. That's a good question. Now, if I feel sleepy, first of all, the question we need to ask ourselves is, how big is the urge of sleep? And I mean, what value does sleeping ONE to me at this point of time, right? For everybody, the earth to sleep might be different and you need to mask the urge of sleeping with the match of your den, right? So you have to find out something that is more doable for you at any point of time in your density them. You already know that right now. Let's go then try to discuss and find something out. Oh, okay. So then I'll call my accountability partner a very good method. So if you're feeling sleepy, one of the good ways to think to do is you call a friend, I call it the accountability partner, who is together with you in that beautiful journey, whatever you're making. Now it is suggested that you have people from the same goal, right? Both of you, let's say I'm trying to crack the same exam. Or it could also be that both of your data, I trying to have different goals, but you are trying to succeeded something, right? So you call your accountability partner. You talk about a few stuff and then you feel better and get back to studying. That's one approach. All you'll start making some coffee, you'll have some coffee, you have coffee prepared. It works really well for me. You know, sometimes you don't have to take a lot of event. The coffee works really good for me when I want to stay awake for longer periods of time when studying or doing anything else. So that could be one thing or the other thing could be, I'll start dancing. Now some people are comfortable just dancing around and that's cool for them. That would be the den, remember once again that resistance level from one task to task should almost be negligible, not at all, as far as possible, right? Let's go a step further. I get frustrated while studying. Let's say your your, your scores are not matching with the scores. Your test, the trial test scores are not matching with expected scores and you are feeling prostate it. You need something that can bring you out infestation but is giving you the same level of ratification. Now, before we go ahead, let me try to ask you to guess this. What do you think could be the thing over here? If you get frustrated, just give it a guess. What could be the then, okay, Think for a moment, could it be making someone laugh? Well, that, that is an amazing thing. But the question is that you're going to have some resistance while doing this, okay, that's going to happen for sure. There's going to be a sense of resistance when you are trying to do that. The other option that out is that the other option around is that you're going to go out there and try to practice yourself into something else gives you an equal level of education. Furthermore, let's try to diagnose a few other solutions. It could be solving the Rubik's cube, right? Eating nachos in general, that could be another solution or my defense. The other solution that you could have is to watch your vision board because it helps you get redirected towards the goal or purpose or aim you have while you are studying, right? Let's look one final example before we sign up right now, it is that I feel hungry, right? I feel hungry. Now. I'll give you a moment to think about it. Just try to think, what could we identify? Feel hungry. Now, I hope you made a guess for yourself. Yes, what could happen? Okay. I feel angry. I could have something like I'll challenge myself to do a sum, okay? I'll challenge myself to do a mathematics. Um, that could be a solution or you've got some fun learn videos, okay? Some people like studying by watching videos and stuff, and that could be you. So that could be a solution for you that L Watts some fun and videos and that will help me get back to track. I'll meditate harder for some people and that's very, very few. Of course, Meditation could be something that could be used for their shift from F to ten. So I hope you've got a broader idea of what the if-then concept is, of how it works into helping you become more productive and getting you into the betting learning curve whenever you have to study, whenever you have to learn. I hope this idea helps you grow a little bit in your journey towards becoming a better student. I have so many movies use your coming up to help you become better student in different course altogether is also where the already, thank you so much. I'll see you in the next video with even more energy, enthusiasm, and excitement. Buh-bye. 8. Carl Newport Model: Okay, My dear friends, Welcome, Welcome, Welcome back. In yet another wonderful video where we are here to discuss about the really powerful method of learnings. Right now we are talking about the very powerful, very important, very effective method that Cal Newport came up. It will, we'll see a summary of his book into a specific pattern of ways in which you can learn and apply it into our study techniques as well. We have thought about pottage affect memory, palaces, mnemonics. And here we are discussing about the Cal Newport model. And this is something that is going to be in the yearly action-oriented. This is the fun part. We know Cal Newport wrote a wonderful book, Deep Work and dv book is not just about when you are doing a job before, is also essential when you're studying, right? Default is also powerful and you're trying to acquire a new skill. Debugging is also helpful when you're trying to learn anything new of any subject. And this is such a powerful technique that variously, globally a hundreds and thousands of people applied. And I have no reason that this is not going to hope for you. So before we go into the methodology and the different ways of utilizing that Cal Newport model, I have to let you know something. Okay. There are some do's that Cal Newport model, the number one rule my defend is the single tasking, once again, singular desking. Now in this whole world right now there's a very big high for multitasking. We do seven things at a time, 15 things that are dying, printing things at a time, three things at a time. And this is something current report says does not walk out the door well, and it gets a very scientific backing to this idea. Let me explain it to you. This is something called attention residue, right? What basically happens is that if you're reading a book and then you switch back to work, your laptop is attention that you had while you were studying a book and you working. That S attention to is going to be coming into your head, right? So what basically happens with that, my dear friends, is that when you have an attention residue where you're trying to work with two things. The effectiveness and productivity is not going to be high because you remember, in my last course, we shared about the power that learning outcome is equal to time studied. Multiply it by intensity of study. Intensity of study is going to be really do if you've worked out doing multiple things at a time because let's say you're reading your laptop working, you're talking to a friend. It did not work out until the task is something that is really bandwidth. What is an example of a manual task? Example of a manual task is, I'm putting stickers into, into boxes, right? It does not require attention. It just requires using your hands. I mean, requires very little attention. And there's another scientific backing behind this. Okay, our brain can process up to 128 bits of information at a time. How many? 120 bits, right? And what basically happens is that generally they're listening to something, 62, 65 bits of bits is utilize while we're listening to something or listening to somebody in full in density right? Now what happens basically is that when most cases for most people 120 is fixed, it's very hard to process more than that. If somebody else starts speaking at the same time to peoples that speaking of that same time, very hard for us to process the two things. Why? Because our attention span is 120 and we cannot, in most cases utilize the whole of it. Right? So if you're having a hard time listening to end if that three people, it replies over 180, right? Bits of information processing, which is literally not possible. So it is almost impossible to hear three people speaking at the same time and interpreted with the non head. That's why, like listening requires 60 to 65. Reading requires a certain amount of bits that have to be processed in writing requires a lot of bits that have to be processed. So if you do too many things at a time, attention is due as well as limited ability to focus, please do so whenever you're trying to learn, make sure you are singularly focused. And there was this research that I read the other day, that there were people who were solving the puzzles before dieting and examined the students were solving the puzzle before writing the exam, have issues converting full focus, we call a part of their brain was still focused and thinking about the puzzles that they were solving, right? So understand that you have to be attention focused whenever we are talking about focus. Along with that, my dear friends, you need to have 0 distractions. What do I mean by 0 distractions? Now, distraction, we think most often in and gender than modern terminology is all about laptop notifications or mobile notifications. But that's the, that's the very tip of the iceberg right there. Very other distractions like if you do miss too messed up, very often is going to require attention span is going to require attention. It's going to require focus. And if somebody requests, if something requires a focus, then it is basically distracting you. Write. Remember what focus is to saying yes to only limited things that saying no to most. But if you have too many people. Maybe one bit, maybe 2-bit voter information is going to be consumed trying to interpret and understand I've been automatically does that. That's why minimalism is at the core of effective learning, right? You keep an environment that is clean, you keep us around. Take that bet. There's not a lot of dust where you can focus on what you have to focus. And that is going to be really effective. Make sure you have zeros instructions. And very importantly, I've suggest this all the time. That makes all you do not have any Amy Amy notifications on your phone, right? Other than really important messages or in application or email that you're using that to if only required, right? Well, students most often it is not required at all. So what do you need to do, my dear friends? Get out there and please, please please make sure okay. To remove the distractions that you have. Right? If you can remove the distractions out there, it's going to be very easy for you to process information, to learn new things, to become a champion at learning and developing yourself. Hey, go forward, you know, distraction, reduction in whatever you're trying to do. Furthermore, my dear friends, you need to go into the states of intense focus, right? If you watched my last course, I talked very, very deeply about flu. We have a whole long video about the state of Lu. You can check it out in the first, first part of this course in my profile over that. But to give you a very brief introduction or fluid state where the dancer is lost in their dance and is not conscious of the dance is doing right. The singer is lost in the song and he has no consciousness of him been singing, It's happening, right? The entrepreneurs, so depending, goes into the world that is not working anymore, the work is happening to him, right? So you need to be able to get you to put yourself in a bogus off, you know, intense focus. We talked about a few tools that you need to have proper hydration, water drinking ability, and proper air flow whenever you're trying to do this at the same time, you need to have an environment that you have no distractions like we are discussing right now, you need to be in a position where the level of difficulty of the work and the level of the skillet requires is high. And at the same time, we need to give yourself time to be able to develop the state of flow, right? So once again, make sure you can develop that state of flow. You have those prerequisites, ready, intense focus. And at the same time, my dear friends, you need to be in a position where you can set B as a place for extreme periods of time, long amounts of thing. Like if you can sit in a place for a long amount of time, that's how you'll be able to learn a lot of things, right? If you spend a lot of time learning them. So basically you need to make sure that you are in a position where you can put out extended periods of time into learning. Now that you have clear understanding the prerequisites of the of the Cal Newport models. We are going to look into the four approaches that each, you know, that this holds and we're going to discuss about each of them in depth. I'm going to give you examples of successful people. Many of them use these and help them become successful in a wholesome. So first of all, we're going to talk about the monastic approach. So what is a monistic uploads? Let me give you a quick explanation about what the monastic upward basically is. Okay? This is how the monastic approach works, might be offense. And you know, when the wonderful JK Rowling's had to write her own book, there were alternatives for her to be in that room and put out intense focus and complete her work and all of that, right? But rather what she basically did is he went to a hotel room idea. Friends, remember, she went to a hotel room. She goes out there. So he tries to learn, you know, work on her book and comes out after a few hours or days after completing the series of Harry Potter, one of the most highest sold novels in the entire planet. That's how she came up with the Harry Potter Bill Gates when he had to write the first version of Basic my defense, he put intense, intense ours. I mean, it took them years and days and all of that to complete the first version of Basic, and that's how he was able to complete it. The other thing might be offense. While writing Bill Gates. Bill Gates while you're writing the initial version of Basic, used to be so engrossed that used to forget I'm removing the shoes from his leg and when algaes or D, it will require time that's thin, dense level of focus you used to be in to right? Monastic approach is where you disassociate yourself with the whole world and get into working with something to have no, no other distractions you have know that things that you need to look upon all your focus, all the intensive time, everything is going to be spent into one single thing and that is your goal. That is the task that you are supposed to complete by the offense. Along with it that, that CIA, the approaches that have to share to you, and these are again, really powerful ones. The other, the other model my defense is the really interesting. It's much simpler than the monastic approach because they find it. Very hard sometimes, you know, we find it very hard sometimes to be able to spend this associate ourself from the whole point whenever we're trying to do anything. So the second upload that we're talking about overuse the bi-modal approach. What is a bi-modal approach? Am here to explain you need not very pay. You spend time in irregulars piece and then get back to working in the regular length, right? So you spend amount of time into a piece and then you get back to a normal life when you are done with the book, right? This is what happens with most other people who are working in to hard-code jobs, right? So let's say there's a steam of Steve Jobs who's walking on Macintosh, right? They used to walk literally super-duper heart. But once they get back to whom they're done with that shift of intense focus. And now that we're into a different place, right? Bi-modal approach is a very powerful model when you're working for somebody, when you have a limited time span, when you have a family that you have to take it off. But when we're talking about in terms of study, you know, monastic approach would be getting yourself out there in a hospital, you know, hostel room, that hospital room setting intensively for a long, long, long as vile bi-modal approach relatively could be US spending a time into the VARK learning part a lot and then switching yourself to your relationships or your regular living lake. You'll study in your liability and then come back to your home and then become who you are, right? That happens when people are studying for exams or qualification and all that stuff. It's very common to see that further move idea of tense, while bi-modal approach has its own benefits. So the real challenge is if you, if you, if you're spending both amount of time over Joe and it's going to be hard to be intense. Then we're talking about intense. I'm not talking about Heroku focus, but something beyond that, you are literally lost a t If the state of flow. So that's a little challenge it by murder put, but many people use it and become successful, right? And then we are coming to the third model, right? What's the third model? The third model might be a friend rhythmic approach. So what does the redeeming approach means? Let me explain to you the the makeup roots is breaking your time segments of work from 10 to 19, right? It could be 20 asked to do as well. But you study for one hour, you take a bleak for one steady for 19, they could be Copenhagen study 41 out. You don't, you take a big for what I, and this sequence continues on and on and on for you. And that's how you are able to achieve your learning. Outcomes are intense for a while. You take a peak and then the intense back again. Okay, so the benefit with this model, my dear friends, is that we're able to achieve intense focus. But when you leave for one, after one, add these or tension that CPU that remains and getting rid of the attention distribute becomes a real challenge. And when you enter that Gilbert, you and focus level is high and all that stuff. I hope you're understanding what I'm trying to say, right? And with all of these three models, as you know, they had their own benefits as well as demerits, right? But they've worked real people, you know, people have becoming, have become successful to focus periods through all of these three models. That I'll Newport is very, very specific to say that it works either way around. But along with that, along with all these three models, let me share to you the fourth model that would be more relevant to you if you are in the position many of them. So first model is called a journalistic approach. Well, the journalistic approach, well, this is what happens you in, in journalistic approach. You don't have specific timings that one-arm study one I'm peaks. You are basically going into any random please. And then you are focusing out there for as long as possible. And then you are getting back to work. You're focusing is as long as possible. And then getting back to what you're doing is focusing on as long as possible and getting back. Now, journalistic approach is more of a freestyle Virgin of all of these, right? You have to focus, but there's no specific time slot that you have allotted. There's no specific obligation that you have created. There's no specific you're getting more where we're going with this. There's no specific, you know, that competition that you have to complete it by this amount of time and all of that stuff, right? So these are full approaches, all work in their own way, effective with their own ways. And many people have used all of them to become successful in their endeavors. Now as you go ahead, I need to explain to you about two very, very important things away. Yeah, right. Number one, you have to embrace boredom. What do I mean by that? You know, whenever we are working and trying to learn at anything, the question why you have to study this does not make any sense. I mean, why will I do about H2SO4? I'm not going to be a chemical engineer. I don't have any endeavors of chemical rate. You get bored with studying something and you question of why you have to study it now, I understand that completely associated with you and that's why I have a dream. Working into this segment. I've started working in smaller scale as a speaker, it the Lyceum segment. But until we have a solution, we have to find an optimistic of weight to a project ID so that we can learn, right? So basically this is what I do, okay? If studying mathematics trignometric, the hardest thing for you to do in the world, go fricking, do it. Why? Because by the end of the day, when you see that you did the hardest thing that was possible for you. And still you are alive, cellular functioning. Still you are who you used to be. It's amazing, It's fantastic because. You learned to embrace boredom idea friends even if the work scenarios, whenever you get into work, if you're already working, you know that there are moments and things that you do not want to do, right? You went, if you're an entrepreneur, that things to hit to do, maybe you hate accountancy, maybe you hate finance, maybe you hate C is whatever that is, not seals, but you don't dealing with people whatever that is right at the end of the day, you have to do it to run a successful company. Similarly, it basically becomes a practice for you whenever you are studying, had embrace boredom, see that? Okay, this is preparing me. This is making me stronger towards whatever I want to do and at the same time value embrace boredom. There's this very, very, very powerful method that I learned. Let me show it to you. I'm willing to spend a good amount of time trying to show you about this approach. And this approach is something that comes up some programming, right? We have learned this and let me show it to you. This is the if then approach that I came up with. What is the if then approached my defense? If then approach is that if you see whenever you're learning and you get bored or you get distracted, you'll identify the desk certain triggers every single time that make you do it that you are triggered by some people writing to you are triggered by extra, triggered by, via your, triggered by zed, right? You know what they're going to come, you know, what is coming up for you ahead most often. So what you basically do my defense is that you use that to diggers for your own benefit. Hello, user triggers. Once that wrap-up, I'm here to explain, let me go deeper into this concept may be up then what do you need to basically do is identify and write down what are the triggers that you have, right? It could be, your triggers, could be that you're having focus issues while you are studying arithmetics, right? While you are studying accountancy, you'll find it hard to play around numbers. You get distracted by social media. These are all triggers, right? While these are all triggers that are really, really powerful, what do you need to basically understand my dear friends is that you can use these triggers which you really know before for your benefit itself. Let me explain to you how that works. If you know that this is going to come up, you come up with exact strategies that you're going to deal with it to give you a worksheet. This is what happens as a trigger. This is what you do as a response. This is what you can add tentatively do as a response. If you can, via your brain to understanding the other three item native outcomes, you can definitely go out there and achieve your learning outcomes. What's really powerful for you to understand the ratio of ideal fence is that whenever you are trying to apply the three models you have to meet so the intensity of funders equal. Let me explain now how given this explanation in all of the other courses as well, but it's important to share it over here as well. Let's say you have a little car that you play with all the time, right? If you're playing with that little car all the time, that's your thing that gives you the most amount of time to write. But the challenge of a year that whenever you want to switch from that little guides very hard because you have so much involved into that car. What you need to basically do is you need to get yourself a remote controlled car that can replace that small cap. It goes to have you like that car and you know, you, you need to switch to the other ones. So you need to have the dead. If it's human, you need to switch the smaller car. And then if the bigger responsible logical, let's say you get distracted by social media, give yourself a book that you really love reading, right? Let's see, You love LWD autobiographies. And every time I'm getting distracted, I tried to get out to either autobiography, get a peak when I need to write according to the Pomodoro technique, if you have not checked out the course, I've described very deeply about the Pomodoro technique. So if then approach is very, very powerful in whatever you're trying to book, it works really well. Because you are pre, accepting like if you know a challenge is going to come, if you note that these are hurdling the way you learn how to play with it, right? You acknowledge that this is the challenge I face. Okay, I go through it. This is how I'm going to tackle this time it comes around me, right? And if you can fixate it in your brain that this is how the response is going to be. Boy, You have no idea of how you can use this wonderful power in all the other aspects of your life. Is that right? And one more thing I wanted to share to you is dream the shadows date. Don't focus on reading 16 hours a day, right? People take pride into the shallow work. He talks about default to all this method, but shallow work is when you're spending long amount of time into the work. Yet to learning outcome is really, really do, right? So basically what you need to do is stop respecting the shallow work. Stop taking pride on the shallow work. Start taking pride on what you love doing in the whole sum, what results you get, study for six hours, but to study intensely, that's a powerful thing, right? Study for ten hours studying densely, That's better than 20 hours of studying. So focus on default, pig pile on default and stop talking about shallow book. In fact, many times she loves sharing it to people, stopped doing that and you'll get started with your amazing journey further with this mighty offense. Thank you so much for watching yet another video in this course. And we're going to see you in the next few of the course. And we talk about yet another wonderful pathway technique to take your memory to the next level. I'll see you in the next video. Bye-bye. 9. The Reward & Risk Loop: Okay, so what's good, you guys. Welcome, welcome, welcome back. And here via again, it has been an amazing journey discussing with you some daily really powerful techniques for your memory and retention. And therefore, they are yet again with yet very, very powerful another technique, other powerful tool to help you take your memory and skills to the champion level. My dear friends right now we are discussing about the reward and risk loop. Once again, the reward and risk loop. Now, what is the reward and risk loop? You'll understand it better as we go forward in this video. But to give you a quick understanding, you to see zoom-in have basic motivation sources. If you do something to have something or redo something because we fear to lose something that you already have. That's what the field, as well as reward, reward and risk group exactly means. And so very, very powerful tool, particularly because it has been used so widely by so many people. It has charismatic effects for people who apply it in terms of getting results, self-help, personal growth, and all of that. And I'll explain the reward and risk loop to you in a really fun way. So basically, whenever you are studying something, what is the reward you give to yourself is a big question. If you've succeeded, your brain wants something for many does the right thing, as well as you wants to avoid what is the wrong thing happening around? So that's what the reward and risk loop exactly means. Let me share this u to u with a personal story of mine. Okay, So this is what happened, my dear friends. One of the things that I'm really wonderfully amazed by is how habits can change. You see, I'll explain it to your widget. You see at the night when I was working every single night, when I was studying every night, what basically happened is that I get a lot Hungarian and working or studying at night. So the other day I used to every single day literally I would go to the kitchen, has some Pooja. What is Pooja is basically a kind of snack made of floored and it's not good for health basically. So I used to be every single day you have a bunch of it and then get back to work and let it get, oh, why did I eat? It's become more of a habit then a conscious action that I was doing. And it was really bad, I was not supposed to do it. And I used to try to say that okay, today I won't do this in the evening, but those are cleaving that used to come up every single day and it was very hard for me to sustain it. This is what ended up happening my dear friends. The other day I went to the studio to grab some, you know, to grab some to GI get. I came. But this is what I found out, just links to Bourdieu where some glob jumps for it. What their sweet solid Jasmine's, right? What a Java was there suites. And they have to write and fruits that are good for body and you know, foods are not bad for body and this wasn't good food. So the other day I went to this too, I had some Germans wiped off in water just to clean them. I had them, I grabbed a few of them, get back to work and realize I did not have h2a right now. I do not have budget. And this was amazing because I was literally addicted to this snack and I wanted to avoid it, but it was very hard for me to get rid of it. How it got rid of it was simply replacing the Buddha with the Jomon. Now this is what I want to say to you. All of us have a vagina life. It is the bad habit that want to get rid of it as something undesirable in attractor habits that we don't want to have, right? But we still have them. So this is what I mean by the Jamuna and Pooja, right, my dear friends, you need to get rid of Blue Jasmine rave and replace it with jam woods. By this, I mean, that in your life and you're trying to study, this is what happens to looking for a reward, right? But every single time you study, you would not get a job. And because of which are not motivated, it's just not inspire you to work in that loop yet again, or do you need to do getting started is to get yourself some reward loop within your actions of study. So that the next time you do something that is really hard, you can do it easily because you have to. Okay. If I do it right at the end of the day, this is what I am going to get, right? You're getting, maybe you're going with this. And it's a really powerful method. My dear friends have personally used it, steam the difference and would highly recommend to you. Let me share to you what this does to your body. These are dopa, something called dopamine circuit that all of us have individually bodies. What this dopamine circuit basically does my defense is it basically enhances our dopamine release in our body into a cycle. What do I mean by that? Let me explain once again. In our body we have certain elements all the time, right? We have all these chemicals, dopamine oxytocin, and all those flowing through and dopamine circuit. Is that when we do something right, we get a device. It's like a dog knows that when it does that right rate gets up, gets down, it goes to get a treat. Similarly, we run after treats and highlight at the end of the day, we need to Job said we can get the money. We love our parents because these are the intention that they're going to guide me. They're going to give me blessings and all that stuff. That's why dopamine release in terms of reward for when you're studying is something that is really powerful and very, very effective, mighty offense. Furthermore, what I wanted to say to you is that try to keep the revolt associated with someone else. This is what I mean by that. So if you hover the more, Let's see if I do this right, I'm going to give myself this award. That's a very wonderful way to do it. But here's the challenge might be offended. Here's the catch. V is humans. Find it really challenging to manage emotions. What do I mean by that? Let me explain once again. Okay. What basically happens is that as I say to you before as well, we have dopamine circuits all around our body. So I want dopamine released, but I wouldn't want to go through the cycle. So what I do is I go to the kitchen directly, have the Jamuna and not tell mommy about it. I just have it and give myself a reward. And if you do that once the circuit is broken and you get often into the habit of doing the wrong thing is eating Jiang Wen very often, eating Buddha very often. This is what you need to do. You need to try to get the reward associated with somebody else. Like if I do it right, this is what I'm going to get. But XYZ is a person who's going to give me. It could be a month, it could be a friend, could be an oily, whoever that is tried to associate that award, it evolved with somebody else giving it to you because that creates an accountability. My dear friends and accountability is very, very powerful when you are trying to adopt habit like this. Furthermore, my dear friends, this is what's also important to know. It's amazing to have you devote that to give for yourself. But at the same time, you also can associate along with that, avoid a risk factor. What's the risk factor? That if I don't do this in this certain way, this is what I've had to pay. The downside, if things don't go right, I have to pay this, I'd have to suffer this, have to go through this. You write about a challenge that we are going to face if you don't do it the right way and that compels you to do it right. And you're getting going with this. It's very, very powerful technique to help you stay accountable. Now there are a lot of softwares. I'm going to show you a few ahead as well. But right now I just want to remind you that what you can do is that you can have offend that if I don't do this, I'm solely a proof of completing this. I have to pay you 5 thousand rupees, 10 thousand rupees or 500.100. This is what I did for myself. I had to record this course and I was running late on this, had to do this a long time back. Political lot of time to do it. So I quiet my friend Ravel and said, Hey, I will. If I don't complete this course by the end of this day, then I have to pay 5000 and angled this buddies pretty good with money if I don't complete it his way to take that money away from me by hook or by crook. And as theater it Yaso statement from me and I can't go about behind it. So I say to him And Bravo, Just because I don't want to pay him. That was a small motivation factor for me to complete this course on their nighttime idea fence. Here's what's really interesting. You know, Mick friend, bet, you know, make friend Beth's that I'll be able to complete this. I'll be able to get this o and all that stuff because we can use friends as well as parents because parents also very critical and helpful, but make sure these are people who really care about us. Keep us. If you keep changing between there'll be kind enough to let you It's okay. You know, you can have that happen sometimes that happens. So assays that, right, and all of that stuff. So be very, very careful and genuine to choose only the right people to take help from for this specific task. Also, my dear friends, I want you to understand that fear often is the very, very, very, very, very powerful tool. And many a times it is an even more powerful tool. Report itself, right? So what you gotta do is get yourself into that revolved loop rather than the few loop, I mean, in the fear loop as well as the reward group because the downside when you have a doin side, something that you have to lose if you don't do it right? You're going to be a lot, lot, lot accountable about it, which you wouldn't be other ways. You can also set other rewards that could be very, very subjective to you that you can use for yourself. Let me show you a very powerful method that I use when I was a student to manage my days in terms of reward loops, right? Here we go. Let me share you. Well, I hope you understood how powerful this technique is. I hope you're going to apply this into your own daily routine. I'm going to see really powerful results emerge for yourself. Well, my dear friends, That's what I wanted to talk to you about in this video that know that evolved and risk loop. I'm going to see you once again in the next video we will talk about yet another very, very powerful method to fight your memory challenges that you do when studying any thing you'll think literally every single thing from means of people to your subject matter formulas, right? Thank you so much and I'm so excited to see you yet again in London Review of this course. Thank you so much, buh-bye. 10. The Zeiranic Effect: Welcome, welcome, welcome back, My dear friends. This is we've apple and you add this multiple cores to VI. Discussing about the reason which we can take our memory to the champion level, ask students. So in this particular segment of the course might be offense, we are going to talk about yet another very, very powerful tool. And this powerful tool, it does Eddie Mac effect, right? What is exciting the AC effect? Let me explain to you what basically happens. My defense is that we tend to remember things that are incomplete. What do I mean by incomplete things? That you started studying something but you have not completed studying it, right? What it does to your brain is that it creates an incomplete loop, right? Eric wants to compete with outside. You'd see that if you don't complete a task, will you often get reminders in the head, right? Not done this, you have not done this and the brain keeps on going it because there's a segment of brain that has enlarged into an action that is stuck. It was engaged by doing it stops because it knows that the task is not yet complete. And because the task is not completed, it has a hard time finding its way and it keeps on knocking in your head. So what you need to do with CSI effect, it, a VW work on something, make sure you have a set of task, very last task on very little portion on the task that is incomplete. What this does, my defense is that whenever you have not yet become some motivational factor for you to do it later, right? Because you know you're supposed to do it. You have not done it, but you're supposed to do it. And it creates a very important impact on, to your brain that you have to complete this. That we had started this, what's the long way to complete it? And you can call it taking breaks as well. Now, I have talked about this in the other course that I have about the Barbara Oakley's quotes on how to learn. She shifts about the path of passive as well as active brain states. So when we are active, when we are concentrated into a state of mind that's really amazing and you're able to take it in. But we need passive states of mind, relaxed states of mind that we can take an opportunity to process the information really well to have been circuits and apply it further. So make sure you have an AVI or learning whenever you're developing something, you take gaps in between and those are really, really powerful. Now, that is why this is the same reason why sleep is considered a very, very powerful tool in the learning process you see in many videos, I will try to understand how to study effectively, how to optimize your study time. You'll realize that they talk about the importance mighty offense of ticking along. If I do this, see that, because your brain can process information Welch it can system iss is valid, can put it well in the right portions of the mind. It is in diffuse state. And how do you achieve diffuse state? But diffuse laterally happens to us. We're not focused into doing something. We have taken a lab and we're not included into other things like focus, not only in studies, but in games and mobile games, in video games or anything such mighty offense. Now as you go ahead, it's another thing. When you watch a movie, my defense, what is the most exciting part? Give you think it's the climax. Want to see what happens at the end of the movie. And that's where people sit after the interval because they want to know how the movie ends, how the story completes. And that's a really motivation tool for us to complete any single task because I didn't want to know the final result. That's one Zj indicates that talks about as well, that you are very, very keen to see the final product of what you are trying to learn. And so what basically happens when you have not completed the final thing that your brain realtors and Cs to again and again. Okay, You're not completed this point. You need to work on this, you need to complete this. And that works as a really, really powerful doing my defense. Our brain wants nothing to be incomplete. That's what I'd seen this simple terms, right? I've been wants nothing to be incomplete. It wants to complete the task it has started, and it takes, it, takes often your help to put it into a state of mind where it is by, you know, by reminding itself, right. Hello my dear friends. When you're keeping your book, the final stage of your work incomplete, there is a risk factor for you that okay. I have not completed this. I have to complete this. Only the last portion is left. I have to get back to my seat. I have to get back to my table. I need to get back to my PC and work on it. And once you get a gave into your PC, you can reprogram your brain into not just complaining that one singular task, but getting other tasks done as well, right? For you. In terms of studies, maybe if you're studying mathematics about linear equations, you can leave T questions at the end of the chapter so that you can come down again and complete it. And when you are sitting again to complete those three questions, end up solving other questions from allometry has been laid out. You're getting that you're going with this. That's what I wanted to make you understand. It's a very powerful tool my defense, while they're trying to see if there's deadening effect works for you as well. And you will come out being very, very, very, very thankful of how powerful this was for you and your life. That's what I wanted to show you in this particular video. My defense have a quick tall of everything that we're learning. I'm so excited to see you in the next video where we'll talk about the yet another really powerful tool to help you take your studies to next level. I'm not, I'm utilizing smart steady series. Thank you so much. Bye bye. 11. My personal model: Welcome back, My dear friends. How are you guys doing? Now, in this video, I'm going to give you a personal demonstration of the model I created for myself that really helped me and I was beginning my journey as a student when I have my tenth grade and stuff, I just got a picture. This is a six December 2017 or 18:00 AM. Not sure about that date of old picture. I got that. I can show you how I did it and therefore, you can replicate this process for yourself and see mind-blowing results. This technique, this tactic is so damn powerful, so damn transformational that every time a look at it I see of how it changed my life. I reflect upon it. I feel amazing. And what do I call this model? I've called this model the breakup model because you break up the whole thing into pieces. You have developed a system whereby you are divided for the right and you have punished for the wrong, not in a, not punished with sticks to something, not rewarded with gold coins or something. But you're allowed to be do-do, the most fun kind of things at the same time. Okay, That's what I want you to understand. This is my very favorite technique, very powerful one. And let me show you of how it works case. Okay. So here is a page, let's say six December, I put inspirational kind of content on the top over here so that I can be inspired when I look at it throughout the day. I say avoid negativity, be precise and stuff and therefore AB put this into segments, you know, at this point of payments, it's a very big debate of whether you should have to-do list so that you can manage yourself. Or you should have a calendar to keep you organized your cell. Specific time slots as well. So very big debate. It's very hard to get a pea size answer right now because it works differently for every single person right there, eight. So right now what I'm going to do that I'm going to show you of how I utilize this system, how it worked for me. Therefore, we are going to move ahead now. First of all, I have listed the different thing that I want to do. Let's say it's math study up to tenth grade, right? It's biology, steady. It's chemistry, studied physics, chapter concrete, it's yoga and stuff. It's reading book and stuff. And I've given myself specific deadlines in which app to complete this specific deadlines. So if it's 10, ten PM, 1111 PM, I have to complete my physics as well. After journal, I have to work for my physics and stuff. I have to work on my maths earlier problem that was challenging for me and stuff. And therefore, now here's the fun part. I had decided for every a 100 minutes that I study and be a 100 minutes as Teddy, I'm going to get 30 percent of it as a reward so that I can do other stuff. So if I study for, let's say 2.5 hours, turns out to be a 150 minutes. I get 45 minutes as a reward to, to do things that I like to do, but might not be delivered like watching TV using social media and stuff, right? I've got ten minutes over here because I studied 30 minutes and all this stuff. And now this is my income structure. Okay. What I studied, how it helped me and stuff. This is what I'm supposed to do anything. Right. And this is my expensive structure. So on, you know, 245 to 85815 to 845, I guess it was I was doing something over here and 30 minutes I spent on watching motivational videos. 30 minutes I stopped, I know something else as well. And this is how I keep a structure of my income. Income stands for the time I spent doing something that's related to my goal that pushes me forward and stuff. And therefore, I spend this amount of time doing things that are not what's my goal, but to have the balance. Now here's the fun part. After this, I write down small things to remember for next day. Ask us things about replacing by phi m stuff, civics, homework complete and therefore I look at the year balance. So let's see, I had 130 minute the total time I got as a reward was dismissed the 90 minutes over here. And I spent this amount of time, Maurya. Okay. I specify the amount of time I have for myself. I know my handwriting is crazy challenging, but yeah, that's how I write. And as I said, you, it's for yourself, it's for your different. So you need not care what people think about your handwriting in a wholesome rate. Just kidding. Now, these are what I want you to understand. You have an earlier balance that you carry and the system continues. I did it for almost two years, 1.5 to two years. I feel so many copies keeping a longer directives it easy for you to write more stuff because you have so much to do our uv time into so many things. And this is a very good method, but I do except it requires a discipline to follow. I switched to the mic or a model that I've shaded in my last course for managing my days. But, and I use this, I remember it was very practical, very productive. And I was I was oriented for my ID, for my life in a wholesome could period of time. So that's how it is my dear friends. That's how it is a very powerful technique further for you to utilize. Now, I want to show you some other stuff. Who ego. I have noted things like before sleeping. Well something's, I'm not given me deadline it or like breaking a poem and stuff. And these holes are actually in a format of priority. So one, my priority is to complete a mass of two all questions of a specific chapter. This is my number one priority at this time because maybe I had an exam coming up or maybe that was according to my weekly or monthly study plan or whatever that was. Right. It was essential for me to be able to navigate at that point of time, to have a goal like this. It might be different for you. It might be more specific, it might be a little broader. But having a priority list of a1, a2, a3, b1, b2, b3. I'm not done in this, but what would also be done is that you have aim in super high priority things. And A123 stands for what are the first, second, third priority things to do in the most important prioritize thing then e1, b1, b2, b3, c1, c2, c3. And I believe this could be a very good model to go ahead with and to replicate whenever you are trying to study anything in a wholesome, okay, I hope you're getting what I'm meaning to say. And furthermore, with distractions, make sure that you use it only as a leverage. We want to keep your account balance. High-end even motivational videos is coming under this category. Do you see that? Because that's actually not a literal productive utilization of time at the end of the data, it, i'm, I'm watching these videos. They're pumping. We have but I'm not studying. They're helping me study. So make sure you try to overtime you drive to spend money of productivity that you earned or reduced from 30% to 20 percent to 10 percent and stuff because at the end of the day it's your life, it's your responsibility to grow and nobody else is going to do it for you. I hope you agree with that. Furthermore, I want to show one more thing in my personal model and that's how I keep track of the time I spent, you know, I used to do this almost every day, you know, from six to seven I get to wake up. Right? Study and study and nail bed and bath. See how disciplined I was. I used to wake up six o'clock plus 37 to eight, I got ready and therefore I used to go to school and classes till 06:00 PM. My goodness deck was hopeless at least so long at the end of the day, right? Therefore, I study and read something for something. I've spent studying time 60 to 70 percent as 20, 50% I've mentioned earlier 50% if you see light, because I wanted to specify how long, even if I study how long it is, I want to have the right metrics to be able to judge myself on the ground, okay, to find out how precisely am I doing, how specifically and being able to achieve all the goals I have, then I have sleep and stuff. Now here's the fun part again. Vinegar keeping a track record like this for yourself. You know, you are actually going somewhere. You can track that. You can find that out for yourself. That okay, I'm making a journey. I'm taking some steps, I'm taking some leaves. The most important thing is that you are actually in-control. You might not the focus on the time. I agree you might not be as good all the time at the thing you are doing. But most important of all, you know where you're going, you know what your direction is. And I think that's as essential as I could stress it is, you know, you need to be going, you need to be knowing the direction that you are pursuing because that's at the very base of use studying effectively and efficiently, right? I hope you're understanding what I'm seeing with all of this. I hope you're getting the right kind of interpretation that is required to be able to understand this model. If you want to have a look once again, that's how it is. You can create your own thing. I recommend doing it in pendant people because I found it better for myself, but you might want to do it in Word, but how will you create this blocks? Maybe you can create out of Canva and use it for yourself as well, right? That's a possible thing to do as well. Right? Okay. That's what I wanted to talk to you about in this specific video, my idea champions. It's been an amazing journey so far. I have further videos to talk to about so many different aspects of being a male students. Thank you so much and buh-bye. 12. Active Recall: Welcome, welcome, welcome back, my friends. Welcome back to this course. We are discussing about different ways in which we can lift our memory while studying to a very next level, we are talking about a lot of productive applicable strategies that you can be using at the same time in your studies in this segment of the course right now, for the next few minutes, we're going to discuss about a very powerful tool or the active recall method. Once again, the active recall method. Well, I have some research pieces, you know, peoples with me right now that show how powerful the active recall method is. Before we go ahead and let me show you some statistic tell I found out, well, there's this research by Andrew Butler that confirmed that by repetition, by active recall, V0 can do 30 percent better into our test. That's amazing. I mean, I don't know about you, but if I can get a 30 percent better mark, she just by doing one single simple thing. It's going to be a mind-blowing for me. I'm sure it's going to be for your answer because three months, 30% is a lot of marks. It's unbelievable that if you can learn this, dig deeper into this, you can apply a lot with it. In this video, we're going to touch only the points of it. We are going to discuss how it works To learn more about it. Then do to go then Google will find a lot of stuff about it might be a fence. These another research done by Captain Nick and broke my dear friends that, you know, that confirmed that why we say that repeating is a really powerful tool. And repeating four times David to similar groups that this sorted out. The one who depleted the learning poor times and the other people bunch who, who use active recall for the learning process. And when they use active recall, the 25 percent better results than the people who repeated four times, which means the amount of time spent into learning is also reduced and the intensity is also increased. And if you remember, of intensity in that equation is the key factor along with the time consumed. To have productive study sessions might be offense. Now, let me get deeper and try to explain to you what this technique actually is. Now, this is what active recall is valuable learning about something, what you basically do is that let's see, i'm, I'm, I'm studying about seven states of light. I'm studying about the seventh state of being, okay, 1234567. These are the delta theta beta. These are the characteristics of each of the feature and learned about it. And then I close the poll. What do I do? I closed the book, and what do I do right over there that I go on to check out and ask myself questions about what I learned in the chapter. Are you seeing where we're going with this? You take active pauses that you're trying to study something so that you can recall everything that you learn and you can use that record to your own benefit to check how much website, right? Constant check, you know, closing your book and checking out how much you have learned is so damn powerful people asked me about reasoning and you'll give a try to give a scientific grant ground behind everything. I shade this in my court says, here's the science behind it. My dear friends. What basically happened is that, and then were you asking yourself questions? You are compiling your brain to think beta. Think deeper, right? We're asking your questions and while answering, in the process of answering, the, the information that you have learned becomes much, much stronger it, because it gains a lot of confidence that, okay, What's it was trying to learn? It has now learned. It is powerful, it's working. And that reinforces the person's belief into themselves. And they go back into loops of learning, which turns out to be really, really powerful, very, very effective, maybe offense. Now, this is what is important to understand. Another powerful way to do it is that while you're studying, make notes of whatever you're trying to learn. Okay? And why you're making this nodes of whatever you're trying to learn. Clues you book all of this data includes the notebook called Poseidon, and then trying to recall everything that you learn. Compare this, this, this, this, this is what I learned. And when you make that recall, that's what active recall is, that you give yourself time to study, give yourself time to check in. And this is so widely used, so powerful, so, so, so damn amazing the offense. Now, you need to take time to do this as many as possible. This is kind of test. And there are so many research points about how baffle active recall is the search algorithm Google, there are tons and tons of statistics. I wanted this course to be mode of action oriented than statistics and research. Backing for everything, I'm giving you some scientific backing. But if you vote death, and try to search out the credibility factor behind activity called active recall really work. And you'll find tons of data confirming the part of this superpower that is very, very, very, very, very underrated. This also works my defense. There's another reason okay. Because it creates stimulation like that of a real-world scenario. What do I mean by that? Let me explain to you once again. I'll be in is wired to be at its very best when it's facing the situation, right? Then we have visualizing what basically happens with active recall is that I've considered, are being considered that to be likely to get days, right. It creates visualization effects, it does all of that. And then we turn out whenever you're working into it that okay. I was trying to remember this and boy, I'm able to remember it too well. And then it reinforces done knowledge that we have it add strength to it. There's something called gray matter in our brain. It, It's transients are green matter, increases the intensity of it. And at the same time, what basically happens is that there's a lot going into a neural circuits as well. My geofence. While all of this is happening, the other important thing that's happening is we are boosting our confidence and morale. Write that, okay, I was trying to learn something. I was trying to know something. I was trying to acquire a bit of knowledge. And when I tried to use this method, it really, really worked for me, right? That's why they say that you must tell peak as many practice tests as possible while you're trying to learn anything as many practice tests as possible. When I used to be in college, I used to obsess over test. Now, many times I used to take tests. I used to get to school myself, you know, 50 percent, 60 percent, 40 percent, which ad definitely not ideal mux. Right? But because I have tons of question papers of old years, because I have tons of practice questions papers that I will work to. What basically happens by defenses that I'm stimulating my brain to think, think, think, actively ponder, right? And then you have fun doing that consistently over time. That's when you'll be able to make something big NA, right? They're able to make it big because we're actively recalling everything that you have learned and that's how it works out really well. I highly, highly encourage you, highly give you a suggestion that at least give this method a try. See how it works out for you and then definitely grow. Then a discussion section sharing your story of how powerful this was for you, how it worked out for you. And I'd love to share this to a wonderful audience in the course as well. They'd love to see it. Maybe you can create it. I always believe that when you are making a course, it's not just about the course, but building a community around it. A bunch of people talking about it. And there's a bunch of people trying to hold each other accountable when they're turning, you know, trying to learn it all right. With this. Thank you so much. That's what active recall is about. Trying to make active sessions of recall whenever you're trying to learn something, right? Thank you so much for taking time to take this course. I am so excited, damn excited to see you in the next segment of the course, I will talk about yet another very, very powerful technique to take your skills of memory to the very next level, I'll see you in the next video. 13. Spaced Repition: Welcome back my defense. I hope you're having a great time without course there we are discussing wonderful methods to take a memory to the champion level. We've already talked about, you know, wonderful techniques like active recall, certain effect, the reward and risk group than mnemonics technique, we have also talked about very powerful ways like, you know, the loci method of Locke's, so also called as the memory palace. And I'm sure you are putting time to think about it, discovering of how it can be applicable to your own life and how you can execute and bring a difference to your own life by using these tips and techniques. Now mind you have tense. In this video, we are going to talk about yet another very, very powerful technique to take your memory skills to the next level, and that is something known as spaced repetition. What does that mean? Spaced repetition, read speeds, tape edition. Now, have you ever seen people who read something back to, back to back to back to bath. But when they tried to read it, again, they can't combine the three types of molecules that three types of molecules are three types of molecules, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. There are three types of molecules, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. They said they have some molecules. They are, how many types of molecules? That happens to a lot of people who are trying to learn. And the major reason behind it is that I'll beam, we have violet and we think that, you know, I'm repeating something is the best strategy to learn by repeating something is a very good strategy. Lots of very good, good strategy. They are very, you know, there are many better strategies out there that you can use to take your memory to the next level that we are unaware about and many people are unaware about. And that's what we're trying to do over here. We are trying to uncover and discover new ways to take our memory to the next level. So what is space repetition? Is repeating that what you are trying to learn at unspecific intervals and trying to see how much you know of it. Once again, seeing what you have learned and paying at a repeated times of uncertainty, not specific times. You try to test yourself of how much you know about this subject. So Dolan's kindred a lot of research about study, like what is the best strategy to strategy? What is the common strategy that all of the best, highest calling students have? And they did all of this study where they are best of the best of the best people doing something unique that the other people we're not doing, which were helping they get the best of grids. And this is what they found out, the method that we're using, space repetition. And the exact tactic that they were using the space deputation is testing. So what basically happens is that the grade school schooling students, the best of the students, obsess not just learn, then literally obsess over the idea of, you know, obsess over the literally obsess over the idea of taking tests. They evaluate themselves every now and then, taking as best as possible, finding out how much they know. And then getting back to a tradesman, seeing how much they have learned and all that stuff. Now, this works really well. My idea fence because as humans, we had violet to learn. We are invited to have the ability to learn, but we don't learn in the field of speech, in the way of memory that we learned, in the way of taking ourselves tests we are revising to us by taking tests because there is something at stake that mask is something that we care about. And because the, so much care about the max, they are very particular about giving our best try when we are working to test, right? There's this other research by CAPM make, I have all these data in my hand that says that a person does not do any repetition. He remembers 22%, right? But if a person does mass deputation, he repeats up, remembers up to 24 percent. And what is really astonishing is when the person uses the speech repetition technique, he repeats the information later over time. And I'm fixed intervals. He's, you know, he's bound remember up to 74 percent now. I don't know you. But 74 percent, I believe is very, very big chunk. I mean, if something you apply can pick your marks 74 percent better. It's unbelievable. It's unbelievable at least for me. And I'm sure you would love to have your grep 74 percent better as well right now. This is what I'm going to do, right? I'm going to give you the exact method of how you're going to apply these testing methods. But before that I have another wonderful statistics to share that. Okay. They did a check and this was a really long, so they have this in my hand. They did this research where they check to bunch of people. The one who did cram learning, cramming about anything that they wanted to learn. They put a lot of effort into it and all that stuff. And there was another target group right there that was doing things a little differently. What David basically doing rather than doing this piece, rather than doing the repetition that they were doing speech repetition. And whether ten years, they look back and ask them the question regarding the things they learned and they found out that the people were using this piece deputation taxonomy, fair, doing much, much better. If you are into medical where you have to study something and remember it for a really long amount of time. The very ideal way to execute what you are trying to learn, practice or they're trying to learn is spaced repetition, which is basically through taking test, as many, as many tests as possible, as frequently as possible. And you know, repeating now at that. Now, what is also important to understand is that when you apply this piece repetition method, you don't have to do it too frequently. Now, what is the metric of two frequently lab up now, there's no certain metric to say that if you're doing too frequently or not, but you need to make sure that we're not bringing in an interval where we're likely to remember it. Like if I study something, I'm likely to remember it after ten minutes, right? I'm likely to not forget it. Right. But on the other hand, what is going to basically happened is that I'm likely to, you know, you've seen where we're going with this, you getting the whole idea. Let me not spend that time explaining to you because you have understood the basic concept of Fourier trying to explain over there, go for space repetition, whatever this object is. Now, this is how you are supposed to test to us. It won't then the Google and write whatever, you know, whatever board you're studying, whatever the subject is and whatever chapter you need, help it, you know, whatever chapter you need questions with. Another powerful, we go to Coda and try to solve questions or similar format, right? See examples. Because examples of solutions to difficult examples, hide the answers and try to solve them, right? And when you are solving it, once I solve it, check your answers out there, right? And then one, solve it without even seeing the question, right? You put the questions on your own, you drive the answers on your own, and that's how you practice. You'll take a whole TR of disclosure. Brune put out a timer, you have a question sheet in front of you and you practice that CI test on your own. You do these. The best part is there's a stipulation your beam, and I've been very, very bad. It has a very hard time dissecting what is our delusion and illusion. Notice reality if we believe into it, right, it's very hard for it to distinguish. So, yeah, very important thing to realize when you're working with exams, tests in the space repetition method, make sure that you are not sleeping with yourself with any things like Mark, sometimes you'd be like, okay, there's no answered into how the question was solved and document mathematics, but the answers are given. Maybe I can check it out. Well, that's not how it will work out for you in the exam, no, you have to work and solve the question. You will they be able to match the answers so make it as realistic as possible, keep the environment as open as possible, as realistic as possible. And then you'll be able to execute this. My dear friends. That's what I wanted to share to you in the space deputation method. Now, I'm going to go there and share to use some amazing ways further that you can take them memory skills to the champion level. Thank you so much my defense, I'll see you in the next video. 14. The Feynman Technique: Okay, Welcome, welcome, welcome. Once again, my dear friends, we talked about so many wonderful ways to take your memory to the next level. We discussed about so many techniques and tactics. Now, rather than talking about memory, we are switching into different other tools and tactics that you can use to make your study more efficient, effective, and more productive. In these series of videos, we are going to discuss about specific strategies that work really well, that as scientific base and we'll have a look into them. We'll also discuss about how you can discuss ways to calibrate and apply it into our life. Good to be a very fun journey because one after another, you're going to see how it is applicable by learning at the same time. So let me welcome you once again to this wonderful course journey. This is the apple and you are watching smart study CDS. So first of all, before we go ahead, we are going to go for understanding the Feynman technique. What does the Feynman Technique? Who's Richard Feynman? Feynman technique comes up from Richard Feinman and whose he is one of the best teachers ever in the world. So he used to teach physics. He wasn't the most legendary teachers because when students use to listen to him and students are learning from him, swing glossing the learning that you could see that they were genuinely wanting to learn, that they were genuinely so excited about the subject they were in those into what he was teaching and all that stuff. And that's why it's considered on the best teachers ever in the history of mankind. Now, what we're doing over here in the recent types. Now what you're doing over here is that we're trying to understand his technique, that he suggests to be able to learn any single thing in a very effective way. The first step of the Richard Feynman technique, also known as the Feynman Technique, is name of concept, right? You know what concept that we are trying to learn, right? Write down, first of all, know what concept we're trying to learn. Is it algebraic equations and linear variables or what exactly that we are trying to be very specific about what you're trying to learn and go out there and try to your specified over there. Step number 2, write down what we are trying to learn off it, right? Write down what you're trying to learn up at what is the exact thing specific that you are trying to learn in the whole subject? Now, subjecting the whole sum is really broad, so you need to go out there and find out what you're trying to learn, right? It's going to be specific. It's going to be something that's very, very important that we understand. The third step is that when you're trying to learn, go out there and write down whatever you have learned in like we talked about in the speech deputation technique, to test the knowledge you have acquired and write down whatever you have learned from that process, right? And once you note down everything that we've learned, get back okay, and note what you have learned, trying to make a note of it and look back, identify the missing gaps of what you had to learn. Once again, you note down what you have learned and now you look back to see, okay, this is what I've missed to learn, right? Once you do and try to find out what you have to learn, you need to go back out there once again and see what we missed to learn. Once you see what do you hadn't missed to learn, you are supposed to get back to learning that. And that's how this loop goes on until you feel that you have developed a specialized expertise into the subject that we are trying to acquire, review, and simplify. That's the basic technique we are talking about. Oh yeah, review and simplify. You review what we are trying to learn. You simplify the process of what you're trying to learn, and that's how it works at all. Now, this is very important to understand when we're trying to do this. Ten lot of distractions that come by the way, like their focus issues. You're not being able to focus and you're doing this. There are a lot of things come into the main. And when very wonderful way to do is what Demosthenes used to do. And we'll talk about this further in this course. But what Demosthenes used to do my defense is that he used to shave. Let me show it to you. His 31st of all. So who's the most police? Who was a famous Greek philosopher, how we started this journey. He was born into a ditch. Patriarchy teaches patency rates. He was from a noble background. But in the process, like in the room back then, these parents were killed and all these leaders seize that we all his land and property. And as he was growing, he learned all of this has happened. But he was younger. He did not have a voice and he could not speak and fight for himself. What he realized is that for him to put out the void out there, he has to learn public speaking, to speak well, to come up with good content. And he's spent hours trying to require the public speaking skill. His sois was his voice was not so horse, it was supposed to be. So used to go there in the top of a hill with stones put in his mouth and try to shout out whatever you wanted to. He tried to speak so that it sounds sounded big. And after lots of practice, one day he went to the middle of the market and sharing his story of how his neighbors, I teach it, I cheated him, but people laughed at him because he was still not good. So when characters whom he put, he took a, he took a device over there. I'm not sure if scissors used to exist back then. Used to see he used a tool and cut away half of his his life. He cut away half of his hairs. And he practice so intensively for the next few months public speaking so intensely that he became a master into it. He came back to the world, shared his story and later with gradual time, people started to disrespect him because he had a voice. And gradually he turned out to be one of the greatest philosophers of all time. Now, are you supposed to shave your head from there between obviously, that's what I am trying to say. But what I'm trying to say my pens is to challenge us. Put some sticks out. What you can do that tiger legs with a not, right or put a little. Now this might sound funny, but the chain around your legs and give you the keys to your momma, right? What you can also do is that tape your mouth by anything, put anything out there to find a way so that you can use physical stimulations to keep yourself away from distractions. Because we learned already in the depot concept that one of the biggest constants to effective studying is the challenge that we face with focus. Now that you're understanding what I'm meaning over here with the focus issue with the Feynman technique with using physical stimulus. This is what I want you to do. I want you to go there, take a moment and think, what is the exact physical stimulus you can use right now to battle your challenges you face while studying focused, right? What I mean by this is that all of us face focus is used when we're trying to study anything that I'm able to focus this effectively. Focus, focus that effectively and all of us face that challenge. What you need to basically do my dear friends is take a break. Take a break. Go out there bath once again, and you need to go to the drawing board, work on it once again and see how you can come up in a focused way. They view one of the best ways to go ahead and grow further in your life if that have the right Thoughts. Why? Because you have 60000 thoughts coming to our brain every single day. Every single day, 60000 thoughts come by, go buy, right? So the thing is, you need to make sure that these thoughts are constructive. They're helping you grow. And how do we ensure that? Very, very simple. Remind you vent, you need to get out there and practice this. How do you practice this? Let me explain this to you. You can practice this simply by reviewing parts, by taking specific beaks. Let me explain to you once again now, let's say I'm sitting out here for no any specific reason. I take a moment back and look back to what I was thinking just a moment back. I review my thoughts and see if these thoughts are constructive or destructive. And if these thoughts are constructive, I'm going to delay that. Okay, I'm doing good, but as soon as I realized destructive, this is taught, is destructed, that is not helping me grow. I let that thought go right now. I put a cross in my head. Let me make you understand what I mean by destructive, destructive thoughts that often you're talking about people with, you're talking about events, but constructive thoughts and now you are talking about ideas when you're talking about your tax that help you grow in the whole time. So that's what's Feynman Technique. My dear friends named the concept right back. What you learn C, what we have, forgot to review it and remember to continue this loop until you found out that you have expertises over the subject. This is what I wanted to share you, my dear friends. Thank you so, so much. It was amazing saying to you about the Feynman technique. I'm so damn excited to see you once again next week. Not make 30k in the next video data. This is what happens and your relative ease your next week. I'll see you in the next video where we talk about yet another powerful way to take a memory. And right now as we're discussing more tips, another set of tips that can help you do your study skills. Thank you so much. See you in the next video. 15. Introduction to Note Taking: Okay, My dear friends meeting such a beautiful journey together. This makes me happy. The sequence in which we are doing the topics that we're discussing, the, the impact that we're putting into our lives through all these learnings. I'm sure it's going to be magnificent. And right now in this segment of the course, I want to talk to you about picking a very important tool for effective studies. Yet, it's not given as much credit as it should be by different students, by different people. And I want to delve deeper with examples into this. So this is what's going to happen in this video. I'll give you the basics of note-taking, what it actually means, can quantitate it will bit of background of what it is and how it works. And in the next videos up, I'll give you tactical example. Show you how I in front of you, I'll show you a demonstration, a case study kind of thing of how these notes are made, these TODs are applied. I like, I don't like coding theory because 2D sounds worrying to me, but I will definitely show to you each of them. So what does note-taking? Well, it's about taking notes in a way that is making learning easier for you. For me, it's about, you know, different things associated. Let me show you a few really quick benefits of it, Okay? There are some basic benefits that we have. First of all, it's personalized. So if you see every book, no matter 500 people a day or 1 million people who are reading the same book. The information over the scene for everybody, interpretation definitely can be different, but the basic information and same in all of the sources. Now you have to challenge everybody understands things in the subjective manage different for everybody. So it's lake one shirt fits all, you know, one size fits all, which might not be relevant. Now, the note-taking gives you an advantage, right? Things in your own personalized fashion so that you can understand it for yourself. And when things are personalized is much easier for you to interpret, to infer, to refer back to N2 in general, learn from it. That's the basic first advantage. Therefore, the other band benefit condensed the knowledge that is that it helps you take more in lesser amount of time. It helps you get more knowledge in a shorter amount of time. And I think that's really, really essential no matter who you are and what you're trying to learn basically. And that's something really important. It makes the information condense in condensed format for you so that you can look back to it when they acquire, let suggest people exam just before some important event and stuff. This makes it really helpful, really easy, really powerful for you to understand information at specific point of time. That's what I wanted to talk to you about, about the benefits of note-taking. Step 4 dollar happen, look into the Cornell note-taking system, what it is. So Cornell note-taking system is developed by Cornell, as you might have guessed, it's a note-taking system whereby knowledge, that information is actually put into four different segments. You know, it helps you organize the learning in a very, very, very, very uncanny fashion, yet very, very understandable format. So you can refer back to it and I'm really easily, you get somebody in the lower bottom part of it, upper right part of it, the medial portion, you have description in the upper left part of the SEMP, the format you write about the topic. So I'm not going too deep into it because I want to rather demonstrate and show it to you. So that's what I'll do. I'll make sure that I have a video dedicated completely showing you how the Cornell note-taking system works. Okay, on the other hand, we have another tool called the mind-mapping. Mind mapping is something I love song so much because it helps you organize information in such a fun week. You know, it's about creating the different nerves and putting information into different subjects and all that stuff. And I find it really powerful, really easy, really systematic, really organized in a way to infer information, to brainstorm. Most importantly, whenever you need to brainstorm, this helps a lot. This has been helping a lot from the very beginning of my learning journey. So I highly recommend people understand mind-mapping to use mind-mapping and therefore utilize it in their learning process. This was a very, very short we do just to give you some background outlook on what note-taking is. Basically in simple words, how it works, what it is about, and stuff. I really, really am hopeful that you can watch the next couple of videos. Very specifically give you an example of different note-taking stuff, how it works, and how you can utilize it for your learning process. Okay, thank you so much and let me see you in the next video where we delve deeper into not picking buh-bye. 16. Cornell Notetaking: Okay, welcome back My dear friends. Now we'll have a look at the practicals of Cornell note-taking system. We'll see how it works. I'll give you an example. And you know that when I intend to make a course, I want to make it as practical and applicable for you so that you can use the principles and put it into application. Almost immediately knew right? So right now we're looking at Cornell note-taking system. It is a note-taking system whereby you deduce the points that you're provided, you have been provided with the long essays, etc, in shorter, more understandable, replicable format. So that let's say you have an exam coming up, right? So when you add exam, you can quickly look over it and have a good idea of whatever you learned. Or let's say you're reading a book, you can put out this technique into application and rather find out whatever you learned much more easily, much, much more efficiently, and what you find to be most essential in more, more easier format. Well, how does the note taking method is be more useful than regular writing? The most important thing is it gives you a format, it gives you an applicable format. And I've done this in a PowerPoint to give you an example of how it works, I made this document for you, but you might want to do it in a paper as well. You might want to do it in a different way as well. It's completely up to you. I'm here to just give you an example. So first of all, I'm not giving the example of the SCI used over here because that would add either lead to confusion of two documents co-existing at the same time, having the same thing, what I've done is that I've made that somebody myself for you in the note-taking format and now I'm giving you an example, okay? So therefore parts of a Cornell note-taking method, okay? Four parts. Initially you have one side or the right topics or the major points, okay? Then you have the description. And therefore, in the lower part, you can choose to have a somebody sorted3 paths not food. Once again, the first part is the topic site. The second side of that description side where you describe about the topic. And the third part is somebody who is for you to reflect back on whatever you learned in that specific subject. Now, here's the thing. You decide on topics based on different bases you have, okay, it might Cornell note-taking especially helpful when you hear something related to reading a book reading and AC, et cetera, where you are, where, you know, ideas are discussed one after another. So let's say this was about technology. Write my essay was hold somebody about technology. So I dealt out, this is how it started. The first paragraph was about the definition of technology, right? So practical application of science and knowledge to commercial and organizational activities. Now I have written com dot and OIG and why I'll explain to you further, but this was just an example, right? So now we will look at the basic features of technology. Now David, three major points that were provided over there. First, change, you know, and then more widespread effect and self-reflection. So in each point there was a major, major point mention, description about the siem technology is primary cause of changing society indirectly or directly widespread effect included about technology. Again, you see P C, M dot repulsed society until you don't. Every community is affected by it. Example, cloud computing help create new markets for notebook and tablet, right? Self-reinforcing technology makes new technology possible. Example, microprocessor. Now, why have I used q m dot and where is the n dot? Well, I used it because I wanted to optimize my words always. Yep. I wanted to make your charter for rate in activities. I see that I could have read routing ACT dot for it to be more understandable for me, it's going to be up to you about how you put your points forward. I like to put it this way. You might want to put it differently and it's completely fine. If you want to read practical for PICOT dot Makes sense, Okay? Then six phases of technology. I just mentioned the date and time and I give an example of what medial teenager was della for a gradient domestication of bile planets. While animals and plants, of course, they had five to six sentences about each of them. But I broke it down to a single sentence because I won't just be able to reflect what the whole point is you're getting where we need to do. Now in some cases like 17 1975 to 2000, that was a bigger pie graph. It has much more detail. So use of knowledge transfer, cyberspace, more informed to be produced in decayed. More than one hundred, ten hundred years. So that technology transfer cyber see, the cyberspace developed more than in the previous one hundred, ten hundred years. I wanted to mention it because I find it is important. Here's the important point. What is important for you might not be important for the other person need to mention what you can remember easily or what you'll find is important in the writing materials in a wholesome, you have to be choosy about this point is that now technical in the definition of biotechnology, there was a step further by talking about biotechnology technical application that uses biological systems to make up, make or modify products or processes for specific use. Okay, that's how I put it. Now for me to remember it later just for reference, I put abbreviation of technology definition, example, application communication organisation. Now here's the fun part. Once I've done the first part of the AC over here itself. I can now use it for the whole of my writing as well. Okay? Or if you think not, this was a more professional and so that can meet you understand if you want, if you don't want to, you can choose not to include it as well, completely up to you, right? This is the format. What I'll do is I'll attach a quick, I'll attach a quick example of Cornell note-taking in my project section as well so that you can use and create your own note-taking system and share it with me as well. In summary, I put on technologies, practical application of science and knowledge, activities, organizational activities, six phases of technology I've mentioned, okay, these are the immediate things we talked about, isn't it? We talked about its definition six phases. Maybe I could also include the three widespread effects, but I wanted to keep it shorter. You don't want to make somebody too long, more than like two to three lanes because you're writing this basically for own reflection and you don't want it to be completed. Furthermore, for fueling technology, these were the points. So no government investment you seem to have, you're going to get help launch more technology including Internet, the different ways in which it was fueled, right? So government investments was put out, 200 million was put in funding for data-related by Obama in 2012. Objective of organising huge quantity of data. Private investment, venture-backed companies rate that the revenue growth and seals drop. This is what was mentioned in 2008. The seals are dropping but there was a revenue growth in 2010. Great example, you know, 500 thousand investment and Facebook created $15 billion valuation, okay? This is how we'll do all should definitely put different segments differently. And that works as a big help for us. Well, similarly, you have for the lookout for different things and in similar fashion you can go ahead and put it now in business investment. They directly investment in the technology through their R&D operations. Example, billions of dollars invested by Google and datacenter. So this is how I want you to look at it. You can put different taxes well, maybe if required, reference it at pretenses, report, document and stuff as well. But yeah, that's how it works. As simple as that, you know, it is ultimately lead the comment, you know, the pivot and business came together to make it more successful. This is, I've mentioned word parts, examples, and go, that's it. Write that P thing that we discussed. Now, you don't want details in somebody just want to look back at it and find out, okay, this is how it works. This is what it's all about. You know, that's how the whole system works for you. Okay, I'll go ahead and give you a few more examples into the same aspect before I go ahead and talk to you about other methods as well. Let's go ahead. Now if you see further, you'll notice some other meeting things. You know. Now, sometimes what is confusing? I wanted to show you a way that when you put two points across at the same time, you can find yourself in confusion and you're going through it again, right? So this is not the ideal way to do it. You have to be careful where you're making judgments about it. Be a little careful about it. But you're making such choices of distance you want to create. Now, you see abbreviation is something that when you add new one, you right over your, okay, you don't have to write it for the old one itself. When you're using an old one, you can just continue and go forward for it. That's the standard way of doing it. But again, if the note is only for yourself, if you're doing it only for your own understanding purpose, go ahead and do it the way you like. I found out that this chart was important. So I put it over here directly. Now if you're making up, making a Cornell note in pen and paper, but you might want to do, is you might want to create a graph with job, you know, scale and pencil or pen. Or you might also want to print and paste it over there, but that would be a lot of pressure, right? Let me give you a quick example of another subject. The subject was internet. The internet, along with rapid growth, you know, do something about Internet over here. It's about users. Now what is internet along with rapid growth of new CAT dot? What does this mean? Let's check over your, it's been challenges, right? Challenges. Along with rapid growth, new challenges are coming. Example, Chinese government online country database lead 215 percent people having challenges with name registration rate and US government give choices of name to its people, its new ways of going online. Game consoles from Apple, microsoft, Sony, Nintendo improve web browsers, et cetera. That's about e-business definition. Latest phone including blablabla. I mean, I'm I'm just doing this to give you a broader perspective and idea of what I mean by the Cornell note-taking system. And bring it with pen and paper. It's useful that you do it in MS Word itself because you are enabled to be charts like this in a much, much quick way. I can do it in seconds or minutes maybe, which will take so-so much longer if I'm using a pen and people, I can create these three charts. Even if printed, I can get a better idea of what you can. Basically do it for me. I find it better months, have it in a printed format so I can review in a more comfortable fashion. But again, everybody's different and you might want to do it in our own way. You know, everything is different, every detail is different. You have to find your own way of managing it according to your content twice, You know, I have another charts over here. Feel free to use as many charts as you want. I have some other examples that I've used to make it more. Understandable for you. You see the somebody again, the same format. Let's say government censorship on Internet, such an organized fashion, you see China's blah, blah, blah. You know, UAE and Saudi Arabia band used or Blackberry phone in August 2010, encrypted message could be extracted by terrorists, lead to IM and local government resolved by agreeing to share data rate three points, three lanes. You know, I don't know why, but the power of three is very useful for me. I have put it in a print book. It is fine thing three points, but I have an exam coming up, does it then, you know, trying to cram for us and as and as I can just open my notebook, I can open my sheet of papers and just review these points. And that could be so, so helpful for me for my exams. Right? So yeah, that's how this works. That's how easy it is. You know, I have done the whole report for you. It's as easy as that. If you want to give, if I want to show you one final example, what is digital divide definition? The gap between those who have access to technology and those who do not have access to technology, right? Then we have binging, bridging that, divide example 60 percent of more likelihood of rich using Internet than poor US Government writing sub Internet or does subband tenet stands for? It stands for subsidized Internet, right? Sub Internet. Falling prices of computer interfaces, government providing PPE cell phones to qualified people, connect to compete by FECA is today in thousand 2011, helping low-income people get internet for as low as $10 a month. So these are all v's to putting its status of improvement of digital divide. World Economic Forum and admits that the gaps still exist after so much effort right? Now, this is an important point because NMO to put in citation, the World Economic Forum will be a very, very powerful way to add a trend to my AC or anything related to it when I'm writing an exam. Importance of budgeting, budgeting their digital divide, well, getting hyper-connected example cell bizarre, helping poorest countries to buy and sell online. You know, companies suffering in Latin America and Caribbean. So this little index and GDPR directly prove essential for innovation when Sweden, Norway, etc. and good patient countries like me balance, urea, struggle. I come from the pile and I can agree to technology as growth is in semantic phase, is impacting all the industries and countries in a valid manner. And then you put abbreviation like technology stands for the PCs and dot stands for Technology definition definition. are SUB subsidized, equal economical, continuous, spawn, continuous beads, digitalization, pro proportional via widespread, right? It's subjective to you of the words you choose in this process. But whatever words you choose, I believe it will ultimately turn out to be helpful for you to understand your content in a more organized fashion. And what did you put as somebody? We put it, what did we put S somebody filling the gap of digitalization. Read is the need of our to accelerate economic growth and width social gap divide. So that was the sample I wanted to show you in this aspect of how this system works. I hope this was helpful. I hope you could take some really amazing points that you could directly apply to create your own own shadow with it. I've also put it in the project section. If you want to take a look and create your own, I'd be more than happy to give you feedback if you're looking for it. Let's see you in the next video we have some amazing stuff further talking about how you can study smarter. Buh-bye. 17. Mind Map example: Welcome back The champion community. Hope you are doing mind-blowing, amazing, fantastically awesome, and as amazing as you could be doing. So right now we'll be talking about a few examples of mind mapping that we can have a deeper understanding of the subjects, that we can apply it into our real life and further see your transformation. You know, there is mind mapping is such a wonderful and powerful technique that my ideation process, you know, Many a times that we're studying, we need ideas, we need thoughts to companies, you know, positive or affirming ideas to come. We need ideas that we can connect to our answer sometimes and just thinking, you know, maybe in mathematics, maybe in social studies and you have to come up with benefits, demerits minutes. And sometimes it's about strategies and all that stuff. For all of these things, mind-mapping is a super-duper, damn powerful tool. Now note-taking is it itself is a very powerful thing. It helps you be more focused with what we're trying to study. It helps you be precise with what you are looking to study. But mind-mapping has a special edge over all of the other things. And that is, the VDD comes up with ideas. The other models are great to help you organize things. But if you talk in terms of coming up with ideas, brainstorming, I wouldn't deny if anybody said me that. Mind-mapping is the best among all of them, That's where it isn't. So let me explain to you how mind-mapping work. So what mind-mapping is and all that stuff. We already had a little talk. This is more of an example video right now. So if you see I bring does not work in singular lines. You know, if you see in all of our copies and peoples you have singular lines that create something like this. They are straight in nature. Let me give you an example. They asked create like this, right? But in reality, you know, I've been neurons are more of an octal format. They don't follow a straight line format. What mind-mapping does is like your neurons are, neurons are curved, your beans, your brain segments are not in a specific format that curve. Similarly, the mind-mapping process does not use a single line and it used curved lines so that it can replicate the model of your head. I don't know the scientific ground me, I hated much, but it does make sense when you look forward distance that it is actually resonating with the v, your pre-made books and it making these curves. Okay, Let's go ahead, My dear friends. Now, let me show you how it works. You find out what the major topic is in regards to which you need to create a mind map. And then you need to find out the various aspects of it right? Now, Let's say I'm, I'm, I'm here to study about success in gender, right? So if you are talking about success, what are the five aspects of stanza expects, or three aspects of success that you want to deal in your answer or chart or whatever that is, right? You need to be precise about it. In this case, we can see that mind-mapping we are, I've given you an example. What are the benefits of mind-mapping? How to plan creativity, productivity, collaboration. You're going to each of these domains. Therefore, you write down, you make these domains maybe use color, maybe don't use color. It's up to you because when you're doing it in pen and paper, it can be very, very time consuming. If you go out, they use colors and all that stuff. But in general, you define the trend lines that you are going to follow. Your benefits, planning, creativity, productivity, collaboration. These are the five things, let's say now in each of them, you have other segments like benefits as Overview, It's easy to memorize. You can overview really quick using this. It's easy to memorize because it's very organized in a way. It is simple, fast, and fun. These are the benefits of mind-mapping. We've got, okay, the other thing is it helps with collaboration. You know, you can, it helps foster teamwork because many people can be working together into a mindmap. And also it helps you come up with better shading way. You can share your ideas and all that stuff in a MOOC, comfortable way with colleagues. This is one benefit, then it is more productive. You know, it's time efficient. It is intuitive for anybody who's trying to come up with idea. Now let's go to the creativity domain. Well, it helps you come up with ideas. It helps you innovate better. Furthermore, it helps you get the thoughts because you have a framework within which you want to have your thoughts. These set of precise tools at the end of the day are what contribute in the whole process, my dear friends. Now let's talk about planning segment. Let's say, right? They are projects that you have to be working on. So there are goals and strategies that have to be discuss. This seems to be a random one away. I just wanted to give you a framework to understand it better. We are together going to look into two to three mod of these different mind-map so that you can actually understand, therefore apply it at their own studies. And therefore messaged me that web of, I used a mind-mapping technique and it will fantastically awesome for me because I strive for impact. That's what my flex is. So I hope you had to get the idea. A basic idea of mind-mapping is how it works, how it different nerves I brought, how it functions in the holes and we weren't the basic idea of what the system is all about. And now a step further might be a fence. You're going to look at some example, so let's go ahead. Okay, I have this example for you. First of all, okay? We are talking about productivity Boston right now. When you talk about productivity versatile, you need to talk about different aspects. What dreams your productivity, okay, so first of all, your study environment is a challenge. Now what can you do to solve them? Collected the fee desk project folders separate. This is like one line, okay, this is the simple one-line way of mind-mapping. We have further way to look into the more complex one as well. But this is the basic version over here. So you can study environment, you have a cut-off, clutter feedback, you have project assignments, you know, that you have organized, you have separate folders for each of this stuff. Okay. You have time management issues to create a DID you have a wall calendar in which you allocate time specifically each day of the subjects you want to study on. Basically you organize stuff in the way you want using that DID or the wall kind of this is just to give you a reference, right? Therefore, watch your thoughts, right? Thoughts, I am a loser. Avoid thoughts that move you away from a ghoul. Like it's too hard, I can't do it, right? And then the other branch of it is thing constructive thoughts, right? I am a champion out. Yeah, I am a champion. Furthermore, I'm focused and making progress and I can do this. Now. Many people do not know about this, but the changing the I am is a very bubble thing if you ever notice I live is actually driven by a perception of ourselves. You know, you think I'm happy, I'm sad, I'm successful, I'm dreaming. I'm, I'm, I'm goal-oriented and not goal-oriented or I am, I'm nasty, I'm miserable. You know, we keep giving us have these commands almost every time. And these commands that we give to ourselves define our perception fossil. And the perception we have for us is actually the perception people will have ourselves because you'll behave with that perception. And that's how we'll create a universe with our own perception that's subjective rate. So just my $0.02 into the topic when we're talking in. Furthermore, we have talking about, when talking about productivity, bust up the, down the projects into smaller chunks, right? Take one bite at a time. Don't try to eat it all at once, like steady at home, you know, we talked about chunking already. Furthermore, ask yourself, what's the next action, right? Therefore, we have an another segment. Let's discuss more. You visualize your goals rate for best phasors practice and visualize athletes do this all the time. Denotes I talked a lot about visualization in the other course that I have. But just to give you a difference, Tiger Woods actually said that the, you know, calls players actually practice so many times it seems sort in their head so that when they hit it, professional ones have a much, much better school. Furthermore, I've done a lot of activities exercises in that specific course about this subject so that you can have a better idea. Maybe you can look at it later about the visualization setting your vision board and stuff. That's really powerful tool. That's where a little bit right now. Furthermore, goals, I like beds, feed, and nurture them. If you neglect them, they'll die. Wow, I like that. Peak action every day towards your goal, I'll write a paragraph of my essay every day, as simple as that, one step at a time, one walk at a time. You know, that's how it works. It's a whole long journey and me being a part of it. Furthermore, dealing with setbacks, It's okay to fall over. Mistakes are learning process. I won't do it again. Come on, have another go. And therefore, peach enter with Joseph. You know, I'll do better next time. That's the perception, that's the perspective that you want to have so that you don't give up, no matter Hawaii, it may seem last thing, eliminating distractions like the Internet, mobile, the TV, you know, something simple you can do is really logging off your mobile and the internet. Keeping your mobile is switched off and tape your show when you don't want to watch it and watch it later, you know, so that you can have your organised thing, right? If you've seen this picture, it might be all filled with color. They are beautiful icons and stuff, but that's not really needed. I just wanted to give you a quick example then for that reason I had all of these in front for you. You know, you might just want to go single color, of course, using multiple colors actually helps you process information way we better, but this one is just for reference purpose so that you have a good idea. What the basic memory palace looks like. We'll go further just right now, looking at more of these memory palaces, how would they can't be organized and stuff? So let's go ahead. Now, this is more precise of memory of the mind-map, but it's going to be a little lower and distribution. So let me have you looked at a different one. What is this? Well, this is time management, memory palace, time management, mind-map. Now you see it has much more branches in a way, you know, it's a little different format. The best part about memory palace is that there's no format that you have to follow. You might want to use own creativity. You want to change things to make it more customizable mood, learnable for you, and you're more than free to do it. So in this specific example, you can already see that we're at time management. We have pig seeing the big picture is chunking. They'll bite-sized information multitasking diversify, right? Asking yourself, the five W1, we use a lot of that into the TV show is, well, I ran my TV show. So when preparing question, we use a lot of this formula 55 w1 edge. And that helps us a lot. Who, what, where, when, why, and how. Furthermore, you set yourself with smart goals. Goals that are specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and time-bound. Let's go step further. Media friends, you'll find more ideas regarding choices over here that's talking about choices, decision big, small, de-clutter, slow down to speed up the x. Now let's see. We're able to understand all of these GD. Well, maybe not, maybe yes. But that's the point, right? You don't necessarily want your, you know, your mind-map to be something that is publishable. It's for your difference, right? If it's for you to be able to understand. So you don't really need to worry if some other people can understand it, like maybe I could not understand this really well, but that does not matter because a person made it for himself. And I might taught me he's target market or target viewer or listener or reader or watcher, right? Let's go a step ahead. Supervise help encourage disk creation. Therefore, we have led go for time management, fearless exceed S for patient consent limits, confidence. You now have a work-life balance. It Studies and Education. Studies and education are two things. I mean, calling Studies and Education. I'll talk about that in a completely different course, maybe sometime in delegation to do or not to do. Now it's very important that we talk about to-do list a lot, but we forget to talk about not to-do list. That actually helps us being a lot focused. Is that right? Cardiac Life and all that stuff, you know, comfort zones, guidance, p, work trust, you know, therefore we're looking at faster, smarter, better, urgent, important and all that stuff in mind tools. We have speed reading mindmaps, right? For effectiveness, we create action plans, different kinds of priorities that we said practice or something really essential no matter what you're doing. If you're a student, if you're a teacher, if you are looking to be a student into a university, if you're looking to be a peach 80 universe, no matter what the field is, it's really helpful to how specific priorities, goals you have diabetes, you have meetings, you bring clarity, motivation affects appreciation, simplification. Let's come into the monitoring section. We have talked about progress, follow up, balance, and negotiation. Now let's have a look further. In the communication segment we are talking about feedback, support, review, a correction, and improvement. Now, let's go into the agronomic, agronomic segment of this. You know, it must be user-friendly, it must be efficient, it must be value adding, you know, it must be positive. Let's use the word constructive, okay? Furthermore, when it comes to key issues, we're talking about methods, checkpoints, deadlines and all that stuff. You know, this was just an example for us to be able to understand time management. I'll give you a few moments, okay, when you're thinking normally without a mind map, It's very hard to come up with. It's not very hard, but it's comparatively more challenging to come up with ideas. Then in, in this format where we have mindmaps, because we have a specific format to look up. It's like you have to put the chocolate in the mold rather than make the chocolate in wholesome. It makes the process much, much easier for every single person out there. So yeah, I highly recommend you this example to understand better. Again, these icons are something that I exaggerated over here to give you a better impression. To help you understand better, It's not necessary that you have to use it. Now, let me show you an example of a much, much easier and simpler mind-map. We have, we have project in the middle. We have teams, budgeting, resources, scope. Planning, deadline, stakeholders. If you see carefully, the best part about this is we are correlating two segments is wet. This is what we were doing and this is our brain works. You know, it has Doodle connections and the moisture and Demisto formats and I believe that's what this mind-map deflects. It's random, it's different. And that's why we have different like the goal is ultimately connected to the materials structure requirement. That sort scope has the resources as materials and stuff that's connected to the budget, as well as, on the other hand, the scope, right? And budgeting. We have expenses and resources in people who have stake holders, you know, T1 and T2 in the planning segment. And we have deadlines, estimate, we have risks, we have goals, right? In the project section, we have scope of work, requirement, structure and materials. This is just again, an example to give you a reference, you see estimates is connected with requirements. Goals are connected with materials, structures, while at the same time, teams and deadline or connected with stakeholders, budgeting is connected, resources is connected with the team to expenses, is connected with the staff. But at the myths of it, It's about the project that's being conducted immediately. And that's what I want you to understand my geofence. I hope you got this example as well, really well. I'm bringing my mess to come up with the best examples to demonstrate with you, to demonstrate to you what we're doing and how a mindmap works. I hope this is bringing you clarity. And should I show you one more example? Sure. Why not? And this is a much more complex one. Okay. I have to let see how much time we have so that I can share you a few. Okay. Now let's go to this one. This is a much complex one. I got this. So you, because now that you have an idea of how things function, you can go much, much, much, much deeper, right? Let's go into it. Storing strategies for whole food. Living, plant-based living, right? Surviving social events, restraints, looking at any talking to the share, bringing a healthy to share it before you go. Then you go to the shopping segment. Fresh is best. Now, if you see here that's the best part. We have three segments cut out. Oh yeah, six to the edges of supermarkets flow gene produce, fresh produce, right there we have a rainbow of the whole thing. Then we have different segments covered differently in supplements, you have different segments covered if you talk about to wealth stored segment might be a fence. We have fridge, we have pantry listed over here. We have a clear containers you have talked about. Okay. We have Furthermore talked about feasible, where we have discussed about dividing items into conventional portions, convenient portions in the teaser, if you have further broken it down into storing leftovers with berries like things like various sauces, best tools, and all that stuff. And then wealth stock Qing Fan tree gives you more power aid like you have more stocks ready can, you can, you know, rather focusing to seals rather than the other segments of it and the chopping have a good knife, you know, take control of pig vegetables, chopped broccoli, and leave it for 90 minutes. And then activities, self of self-organized nutrients right? Before you go cooking, you need to lay out the ingredients and equipment and you need to read the whole recipe first, right, recipe first. These are a few examples of, let me complete it rather because we've almost done the whole of it. You, if you're hungry, you cook in big batches, right? You need food, you plan your meals, you carry healthy snacks. Given examples of fruit, nuts and veggies. You bulk up the beans. You have beans over here. You have the second meal effect coming up from the wheels. You have to invest in a pressure cooker and stuff in terms of mindset, focus on one meal at a time. We have further talked about tomorrow, I'll go for it, you know, slip up. No problem. If you fall down, no problem, get back up. And therefore don't try to change everything all at once. Take baby steps and introduce one new recipe per week, right? This is how it works. This is how it works. I hope you've got a broader idea of what a mind map is. How do you function, how it functions, how it actually works. And I'm showing you this use of example with one. So the intention to help you have a better understanding of this subject, because it's very, very essential minor offense. Okay. Let me talk about this final mind-map, learning a new language. It's about learning a new language. Now there are five segments to it. You play, you mimic, you persist, you make mistakes, you travel, you know, immersion, schemes, learning and love. These are all these different segments of this aspect. And therefore please broken down into making, studying enjoyable, being imaginative, being a music. When it comes to words, different sections, you know, try to mix them to come up with new combinations, right? In my memory segment, I have definitly talked about this method, just giving you an example. In the mimicking, you use Dublin Principals, you use vocabulary rate increases degrees new way. Now, here's what I want you to understand. Again, we're not able to understand a lot of utopia, yeah, Right? Why? Well, because it is not written in the way we understand. It is written in a way the person understand a person who has a basic understanding of the subject matters, you know, subject matter and descend, it's completely fine. It's completely amazing rate. Furthermore, when it comes to persist, it talks about overcoming obstacles. It talks about learning. It talks about mistakes and enjoying the whole learning process in itself. And learning a new language is treated with live, living, immersion abroad, travel and stuff. And it comes to schemes that progressive scheme, their grammar scheme, debt structured schemes, the imaginative teams, right? And all of these bring it together. Learning into love is equal to curiosity. In sanitation. That's really powerful. I loved that so much. You know, when you are learning and loving something at the same time, we are so damn curious about subject that we're going to learn more and more and more and more, isn't it? Well, we already have a very good idea of what a mind map is. You already had looked at some really amazing examples. I hope you have a broader idea. This is kind of a long video we gave into so many different examples. I hope you have a great time further learning about mindmaps, about different methods of actually brainstorming and coming up with ideas no matter what that is. Thank you so much and I will see you in the next video. 18. Demonstration of Memory Palace : Okay, welcome back. So we have already discussed about what memory palace is, which is basically it is a place where visualized place whereby you keep different places, different things in different places to actually help you in your memorization process. And we know how effective it is already so many successful people have used this homing memory chapter. It's actually use it rather it is such a beautiful history as well, which I've already shared you. Now in this video, we're going to do something really different. You know, one thing for sure that if I'm making a course, I want to make it as practical as possible, as easy as possible for you to go out there and apply it not long after, but immediately, as simple as that. Now for the same purpose right now, I'm going to demonstrate what we learned about memory palace with a specific example. We're going to have our own palace, for example. And we're going to use different elements that will keep in different places so that we can remember. So let me give you a quick recap. Memory palace is an imaginary location in your mind where you can stored mnemonic images, right? There are many common places for memory palaces. It could be a home, your office up, anything else? Write the location are called looky in Latin means location itself, right? Lucky or location. Now what we're gonna do is we're going to get a one example for you and will to remember it. Okay, but before that, let me also remind you that this is from art of This is the link. So if you want later, you can also go and see how the system works. Let me recall to you the whole journey we had for creating a memory palace. The first was to actually decide the police want to use as a memory palace. It is the office, is it a home? Is it a specific place that you design for yourself? Second, you plan the route, the front door, the show jack, the bathroom, the kitchen, the living room, et cetera. You decided a plant root that you will have to follow to reach to a specific place. After that, you're going to take a list of things that you really want to memorize. This could be ten kinds of plants. It could be a table, it could be anything that you choose of your own choice that you want to remember. And therefore, in the fourth step, we are going to have one or two items and retain that took place in a mental image in different Lucas's. And we're going to remember one very important skill in this process that we need to exaggerate these places as much as possible. I've stressed about it in the last video as well, because exaggeration is what makes us easy to remember, you know, makes it fun. So remember a ha, ha, ha, THE either must be really beautiful or very, very nasty, or it must be something funny, haha, right? Using the same principle, we are going to design our pieces. It's not going to be a sun, it's going to be a funny sun or laughing sun or dancing sun. It's not going to be a chocolate, it's going to be a melting chocolate, right? You getting what I mean by, right, we will do put some adjectives into the substance we are going to put in a memory palace so that we can retain it better. Now that you have a better idea, let me give you an example and go ahead with it. Okay, now, I want you to take a look at this place. Take a moment. Now imagine you were to create a memory palace into this specific location. What do you think are the key places that can be considered to make a memory palace in this specific picture, right? This is the picture you have. You need to create a memory palace. Let's see 20 things. So 15 things or ten things. What do you think are the key location? Maybe you come from up and the destination is the red house or anything else, right? Let's try to imagine that green place over here, right? This is a key location. This wall again could be colocation when you're coming down. The right. The left side would also be a key location. Again, the other wall we have, which would be another key location. This TLC is n could be important location because it's going to be the last place you see in the journey. This what you would call it, you call it a wall itself, the wall defender or anything else you call could be more important please, that you can remember this place where probably can set could be important place that you can remember. The top of this could be important, please. This wall could also be important place or this thing over there. The red thing also took something different. So that could be also something that is memorized, right? The green though Definitely, yes. Up this wall. This window? Definitely, yes. From my end. This red window, red door, Israel, right? That would be a place or this green bushes, this this was right. This final stake, if that makes me different location. These are some suggestions I had for you. What else do you think can be something in your memory palace? Oh yeah. This white thing, could you be a part of your memory palace? This thing up here could be a part of your memory palace. Or let's try to see something else as well. This thing over here, because it is the losing, right while closing kind of thing. That could also be a part of your memory palace, right? Anything else you can find? Definitely a lot more things and I think we'll have a wall on this side exaggerated if this was a real space. So that could also be a part of their memory palace. That was just an example for you, right? Put into substance. This is what it could look like, right? This is what I want you to remember. 123456789, 10, 11, 12. This could this should be something that are individually identifiable. They don't have to be merged with something else for you to remember. Otherwise in the whole process of creating your memory palace of it's going to be a mess because you need to remember the location, the specific location of all these different things. And if you just make it complex, it's going to be a very, very hard for you. So let's go ahead my defense and create our own funnel, create our own journey for our memory palace. But for that, I want you to remember the different pieces that we have. Okay, this take a moment if you want close your eyes and let's try to remember the different places we have. I'm doing the same. We have a greenish, blue greenish. I'll give you a wall in the beginning. We have a blue wall and decide the staircase in the between the different wall that I have. Okay. Thereafter, when I come down, the final steel casing itself is something that I can remember. The sixth is another wall that I have. The seventh is a place that I could sit in. The eighth is the whitish are designed just above the gate. The night. We have the green door in front of us, intent. We have a doormat kind of thing, right? That is pleased. Before, after the dough. In the 11th we have another evolve and basically they something like a pleased that two people, maybe a window or something like that. And to wealth, we have another door right there in 13. We have another staircase in front of us, Let's say import another bunch of bushes. And in 15, we have the final trick is while coming down. These are the things that we have. Now, it's not enough for you to remember the different 15 cases. You have. A step further. What you need to do, my dear friends is that you need to decide the journey, okay, to the 15 cases, you're going to make the whole journey very specifically because it is so critical for you to know that journey for one special, one simple reason, random idea of friends. That this is a memory palace. You've walked through it, right? It's not going to be jumping from places to places, going to be specific location. So you need to be specific about the place you go from one to 22 to 33 to four, it must be systematic, right? If you want to end it on 10, That's how simple it is because it's going to be your house, it's going to be your place. Definitely not this place you would want to consider because we want to consider something more familiar for you. So whatever that places go there, spend some time to define an exact route that discoverable by you, by you're making your mental walking, you're going to walk through this, please. Mentally further, right? So you need to be precise about different location, different things in different location, and how you're going to put different things into different location or the same purpose, right? I hope you're clear with that. Let's go ahead and right now, I'll create a list of things that we want to have. But before that you need to remind ourselves the whole place. We have already done it before, please. Now, remember one thing again, you want to create a visual representation. It's not going to be just about you thinking that a word in that place, but to visually pleasing it over there. And furthermore, exaggerating is as much as possible. Why do we use the word exaggeration over here? Because we already know that why the exaggerate, we are much more likely to remember something right now let's go ahead and create our own memory palace step by step. Now, let's start with the first location, my dear friends. The first location is the greenish wall. Now, let's say we want to remember the 15 elements in the periodic table. And I don't know the 15 elements, I'm going to put some random thing that come to your mind, come to my mind and Shae you of if, how, if I was at your place, I would create a memory palace out of this thing. The first thing you see in this picture, we're going to divide it into segments. Because remember, if you have watched my last course, I remember I talked about the power of chunking information. You break it down into pieces and therefore try to process it so it is more comfortable for you. Okay? Now, we're going to remember the 615 elements. The first location for us is the greenish ball that we have. What is the first element? It is hydrogen, right? Now, what do you connect with hydrogen? Well, with hydrogen, Let's try to remember with hydrogen, what comes to mind? Hydrogen. Hydrogen, H2O, that's water, or hydrogen. The sun is filled with hydrogen. That's something that could stick to me. So I'm going to imagine that I have a big yellow sun over there. And it is really smiling and laughing very hard. The smiling and laughing very hard as an objective we are putting so that we can exaggerate it a little bit. Okay, big Smiley offer. Hydrogen. Let's do a second element that we have in the period, in the periodic period, it is helium. Right? Now, just imagine that there's a big orange helium balloon, let's say, or big blue helium balloon that is turning yellow because of the heat. Okay, and it's trying to go higher and higher and shouting, let me go up, let me go up, let me go up again. This objective is to exaggerate the situation so that we can process information more easily. Okay? We have put the second thing into the place and that is really amazing. We have hydrogen, we have helium. Now what can we throw a place in the third place? What is the third element? Try to remember. Okay, If I'm not wrong, the third element that we have is lithium right? Now, what can you connect with lithium? For me, it's really easy to remember a lithium battery. And let's say that you're walking this please. Okay. You're walking this piece and there's a big lithium battery that is blocking your way. Okay. Big lithium battery that is working your way. Give itself a color, gave it a color. Maybe I'm getting a blue-colored ready to put your own color into it. And how can you exaggerate? It is melting. Okay, let's try to imagine it is melting because it is so hard because Sundays are within this helium over here, right? So we are big lithium battery over there. The next thing in the workplace, what do we have as fourth element? The fourth element is beryllium, okay, if I'm correct, the fourth element is beryllium. Now with beryllium in the 43. So we can remember the word Berry right now with Betty Liam, what we can tease, it's very Liam. Liam. Liam sounds like lithium. So the berry days or read barrier with then is getting burst because the, because of the energy is getting from lithium, right? So Bedi Liam, Okay, Now in the third, you could also have connected the lithium with Sun, which is powering get right, the Sun is giving energy to the lithium battery. Random stuff you need to put your own mind and come up with your own voice to exaggerate the information. The fourth thing we came up with was pretty Liam because they are very, that is bursting. Give it a color again, give it a structure, makes something funny out of it is getting post and making a mix on poll, okay, Anything else you want? These exaggerations are important. We have the four things over there, and now we'll go to the fifth thing. But with hotels, the fifth element, the fifth element is boron. What is it? It's boron. So what basically happened that you are walking through a V and what you're feeling with bourdon, it sounds like a board or it sounds like what does bull on for the Southlake? Think a moment. Bold, boring, bold, dumb. Okay. Bonding, late bolding. So you can think that people are holding for a car over there, Let's see, okay, bolding their boding into a car, like in the fight you need to do boding. People are trying to build into a car to run away from this place. So bifolium boding, okay, that's how we relate it to. Then come up with your own stuff as well. If you don't find it to limit the six place when we know six element is carbon. If I'm not wrong, That's correct. Now we remember we're putting out Something visiting is we were boding into your boarding card. The six could be car carbon, right? Carbon. Sounds amazing right? Now let's go to the seventh location. Seventh location is, let's imagine that the sixth location there is a car that is sitting literally over that, please. Now, this is making it very hard for people to go inside of it. It's very hard to go there. So many people over here. Imagine that there's a knight sitting in that seven. Please write and he sing, well, wonder where do you want to go? I'll take you. Just imagine that it is being, do you see how Nite looks like and try to visualize it for yourself, okay, at night. Because we have nitrogen in that place. We want to place nitrogen and that's why we are using this game over here. Okay. Now bend and night said that I'll take you whether you said thank you so much, but easier that AML do and very fast you need oxygen for that. So when you remember oxygen via putting something by this, and we are putting in something above because let's say oxygen is above, right? Oxygen. What does oxygen sounds like? Oxygen sounds like ozone layer, right? You know about it. So you go above to get oxygen messes very, very random. And I want to do with shorts. I'm putting it a little random thing, but I hope you're getting the idea right now. He says You will take it, but, but all of a sudden you want to go to pee. You need to go to washroom from nine to get inside a door so that you can go to the washroom. And the ninth element is fluoride, right? Or fluid in. And fluid in sounds like Flush. Flush. So you go there, you flush. But we again have a tenth element and that is the thing outside the dough. Now what do we need to remember with it? Try to think for a second. Well, no one neon. So the night and said that you'll be reading for you to come and it'll take you around. But when you come outside, you just turned out and find out that there's the 19th motto job and you feel sad about it. There's no one. But luckily, let's say that you have the phone number of night, you have already taken it from him. With that, we have an 11th element and that is sodium. Now, what does sodium sound like? It sounds like so DM direct message. Find out debt by you waited washroom you kept, you forgot your food in the window. It's a window over here, right? So the window has a phone, so you go there So you DM the night to come and take you home. So sodium's all. Thanks. So DM and therefore you get a direction that all okay. I need to DM. And while you are trying to DM the person, unfortunately, you have no idea out of the, out of wonder what basically happened that you are magnetized towards the door out there. Now how does magnetize connect over here? Magnesium. Okay. The tooth is magnesium. So how would you connect over here? Magnet pushes and pulls it really hard, and therefore, you get kicked in inside that door, and that door is magnesium. But luckily for you, I would say that though there's agreed Vassar were there, that you can see and it has aluminum in it. So aluminium can we infer directly as aluminium foil? I just want to give you different variations. Sometimes you have to try to do something with the word that you want to remember sometime it could be something different connected with the past knowledge, aluminum foil. So if somehow we're in aluminum foil that is available in that pot and get back outside. Okay. And that's the 13th element aluminum For that, these 14 then finally you have made finally you are what you want either the night ask you where do you want to go, gentlemen? And you say, I want to go to the Silicon Valley. Why? Because I want to get started with my startup. So you and you decide that you want to go to the Silicon Valley, you shade to the night over them and you guys together start your journey. Decide to start your journey towards Silicon Valley. Right now, Silicon Valley's making sense for me because I'm, I'm, I'm very touched by a word like startups, innovation, business. Something could be different for you, right? But while you'll see o'clock because of all this chaos, you find out that you are late. So you see that you want to go really fast now what does fast sound like? It sounds like post Fordist, right? So first photos fast and that's your final element. You sit in the car fast and you guys move towards the Silicon Valley. That is our memory palace. Now reuse very random things, many random things. I want to think of the whole journey for yourself and find out what relates to you, what does not, and design it accordingly. But let me see if I remember it at all. In the first place we had a big sign with sounded like That's right. It was hydrogen in the second we had a really big R, blue balloon that was turning red and shouting, I want to go up and that's helium. And the third we had, we had a big battery that was taking power from the sun, that is lithium, right? But next to the leaf here we had another thing. And what does that Ford think? The fourth thing that was probably very related, let me check, let me check, let me check. The fourth thing was very limited. That's right. It was bid helium because why? Because it was getting purchased over there. Now fifth is related to something with them when I was getting completely bored, right? So I was getting bored watching all of this and that is bought on in the sixth. I want you to go outside. Therefore, I wanted to get to a car, but that car was so nasty and there was so much of crowd were there that I couldn't do it. The sixth one is carbon. Right? Now let's go to second seventh then. What is this seventh? Well, the seventh is unlike a night. Say that, Well, gentlemen, I'll take you wherever you want to when you're super thankful to him. And but you realize that because we are going to go fast with him, you need oxygen. So you go up and grabs an oxygen, right? But then you realize that you need to go pee. So you go to the washroom. And how do you relate to the nine tengo day flush, right? Fluorine. You need to go to the washroom and you go for fluidly, you're flushing over there. Right. But when you come out, you find out there is no one over there That's neon, right? No one. And then you are wondering and thinking of where should go, What should I do? You are completely perplexed and then you find out, oh, okay, use the thing. I need to DM my night and BM because so dm, right. So dm, so DM, Right. But when you go to get your phone and text him out of sudden out of nowhere, they something that's pulling you in that place and what is that thing over there? Well, it is magnitizing you and that is magnesium. Okay. But when you're using, when you are getting attracted with that magnesium, you find out that you can get an aluminium port and gets saved from the magnet power. So you think of an aluminum foil that you want to wear, that aluminium, right? And finally you find that your night has come because he was coming all this magnetic tape coming in. He comes outside for you. And then you and I think he asked you the night, ask you where do you want to go? And he's UC that I want to start my own startup. So I want to go to the Silicon Valley and that's where we had the word silicon. But when you guys are talking, you look at two o'clock and you find out this is so damn LIATE. Now what you're gonna do, where should I go? And then you say to the nine that you need to go really fast, and that is four quarters. So we remember all of them. I promise you I'm going to practice this and this has happened. Just imagine if you're trying to use it for your own story, create your own story and try to visualize things and make it happen for yourself. Let me remind my mind the whole set of elements. Now, we have hydrogen, helium, lithium, beryllium, boron, carbon. Here we had nitrogen, magneto, right? Oxygen. Therefore, we had, we had a flush, so floating, floating, and then we have no one Neon right after that we had sodium. Then we had magnesium, we had aluminium. And a step further, we had, we had Silicon Valley silicon, right? A step further. Finally, what did we have? We need to go fast and that was post photos. That's how busy it is. I'm just showing you one example. I could have shown you so many examples. I want to make sure that this course has no job. No, Not too long for you. So that's how it is. I hope you've got an idea of what I wanted to put forth for you. I wish, I hope I am very optimistic rather that you'd apply all of these and they'll turn out to be helpful for you in your journey to remember whatever that you want to remember. Okay, that's it for this video. My idea fence it is very useful in sequence. You'll kind of thing. I have so many more things that have discussed in this course. I am hopeful that all of them will be helpful for you. This was a rather little longer video because I wanted to do go for a specific demonstration of the concept that we just learned. Okay, So that's how it is. Thank you so much for being a part of this course and I simply cannot, cannot, cannot wait to see you in the next video. Bye-bye. 19. Reading Skills- Retention and Speedreading: Welcome, Welcome, Welcome back, my dear friends. We have come a long way discussing so many different ways to take our memory and depths and tricks so that we can take our study skills to the next level. There's so much that we are discussing right now. Now in this segment of the course, we are going to dive deeper into reading skills. Now. What are leading skills, the skill to read? Basically what we're gonna do is we're trying to understand how we can study. We're not. Reading is an essential part of studying because you have to do it all the time. We have ready books, we have to read research papers, you have to read articles depending on which grade you are in, right? So what we're going to learn here is how I learned to read in the right way. And we are going to discuss different ways, if you have any for the ideas to add about this, make sure you go into the discussion section, add your ideas, and it would be fun discussing my dear friends. So before we go ahead, let me also acknowledge that this particular video will be divided into two segment. Number 1, high-tension reading, a number to speed reading. So first in the highly tension reading segment, we'll discuss how we can read. Make sure that you read in a way that you can retain a lot for the future as well. While in the second video, we are going to discuss about how we can speed read more effectively. I'm going to show you some examples why we do both of that. And then we'll move ahead for the further pipe media events. So let's go ahead and learn. Now. If I go ahead, let me get the books right. I can show you exact ways that I do my speed reading. There we go. I'll give my defense. I have picked out a book for you. Start with y by the wonderful Simon Sinek. I have bunch of books, but I've picked this one because I have some examples too. So, but yes, so let's go ahead and start with learning about high retention rating. So first of all, what is hypertension reading? You start hypertension reading is where you find a way that whenever we are getting stuff, especially self-help books or not, there's there's so little that we remember, right? If you remember, you read a book three years back in the soliton, you remember about it even now, the question is how we can learn it in a way that we can remember what we're supposed to remember for longer periods of time. You know, there's no loss of memory and retention. So that's what we're going to discuss in this video. First of all, when we talk about hypertension, reading my dear friends, let me show it to you how it works. Okay. We started it in different step. The number one thing you do is you pick up a book that you want to read. You fill out the chapter that you want to start with. I have chosen the chapter, The Golden Circle. Right? Now what you do basically before you get started to reading it is you roll down the pages, okay, to just check out whatever the concepts over here, right? It will find some good line. We'll just take a pencil and just motor, just make a quick tip, a quick read like this. You getting an idea of the keywords, Apple comparators. I'm getting the words, keywords right there. And that's how the speed reading books. To take a quick overview of the chapter that you are trying to learn. That's the step number one. Here's the step number two. After every book, in most of the book, this is what happens, okay? Our brain conceives in the V of questions, okay? Or do you need to do? Go and do next is go to the book and turn to the quiz section. Almost every single academic books have a quiz section might be appends because they have questions relating to the chapter that will just go there and check out the questions that are written out there. Just give a check to them. And now what you basically do once you find out 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 question The Golden Circle, what is in the center of Golden Circle? Why is why the most important thing you get all those questions, right? And now what you do again is you're going to reading the bold lines in the book. What do you do? Go into reading the bold lines, the chapter topics, what does the bold lines that chapter topics and some lines that I keep, quotations and all those stuff, right? You go out and read all those good lines. If the chapter, one after another, one after another, one after another one after another, you keep on doing that for the whole of the chapter. That's the step further. Now, once you do that, this is what you wanna do. You wanna go and read the first line of each paragraph, and then you're going to need this second line, the final last line of each backbone, first line of each paragraph, last line of each bag up for the whole of the chapter, right? And then finally what you're gonna do is you're gonna read all of the text as you use really do. Then you come back to the questions part is write down or think of the answers you have for each of these, and that's how it works out. Now this is a very time-consuming process. I ugly, right? That's why it is a high retention method, right? It takes a lot of time often and I agreed to it. There's no question about it right. Now. This is why it is very effective. Number one, week, check the questions in the very beginning so we know what we're looking for. And generally the questions that are. In the last part are the questions that, you know that often describe the chapter that, you know, any good publisher will put questions that are really important in the chapter. You'll pick those questions and you know what you're looking for when you're reading that book, right? So you reading the whole book with the intention to find an answer to that particular challenge, that particular question and becomes really, really interesting because you were doing it in the correct flow, getting me out there. That's how you're supposed to do it. Also repeating what you are supposed to learn in the, in the bold lines again and again and again. And repetition, as you know, have shared before, not the ideal, but one of the very, very powerful tool to remember whatever that you are trying to learn, right? Also, one very powerful thing to do is people do. Go for putting out a lot of time. Highlighting. And while highlighting is a good technique, we end up highlighting the whole book, the whole of Chapter very often. So this is what is very powerful you highlight as you want to. But what you do is that you go into the front pages of the book just like this with pays number, I'm sure you are not able to see it. What is done over years that I've written some key points in page number 29 learnt is when people are willing to turn the better offer of a product to continue doing business with you. That's a key line that I read over here, right? That's what I'll do, right? The pieces when the front of the p then write it down so that whenever we don't read a book, very often we don't read the chapter very often we go for nodes few days later, eight. So you'll have that retention go for the first page of the chapter or the first page of the book and write down all the notes regarding bad singer a topic you getting. This is what we were discussing about the high retention rate. When high retention reading is ideal for some subjects, other subjects like, let's say you are supposed to read a novel, right? High retention reading must not be a must, right? The other alternative ways to read that could be more effective because hypertension reading often requires a lot of time and you might not want to give that amount of time to that particular subject or chapter. You can go for the second alternative, which is the speed reading. What's your speed reading? Reading. Reading the fastest been well, I'll explain to you all get when you have a vague or generated content that you have to go through that you have to read. It's very hard to go from line to line to line to line. It's very pretty boring to read the whole thing, right? So what you can rather turn to domain your fence is that you can go for speed reading method. You go out there and you read, read, read, read, read, retreat in a speedy manner. Right. And how would you if you did in a speedy manner, you know, you end up not taking any retention. That's not what we want. We want to read speed, but we want good retention as well. How do we do that, right? For content that is more diverse 2D format, this is ideal, right? Number one rule whenever we talk about sweet trading is get yourself a pencil, write it real with something to point out that a hand or the pencil rate whenever you're leaving, either put your hand up, then treat with your hands out debt, or use a pencil to point you undermine where you want to, but you use the pencil to point out every single thing out that that's how you're supposed to do it, right? Furthermore, what you need to do is that over a job, this part, like almost the last part of the book, every book has a margin. Create an imaginary line. You can also start by creating a physical line, right? T8 lines in both of the sides. And you would need from this part of the, this part from medieval to middle to mediate the middle. You'll be able to take, because many times when we come into this part, you see we have a flow of reading and we lose our intention into the white file, lets you create a line over here. You'll keep going from here to here, to here to here to here. Very continuous getting what we're doing over here, word there, and do reading in this format, right? Furthermore, it is really powerful, is that rotate eyes from left to right. Okay? Many people are moving on the books. Rotate your eyes from left to right. This is the ideal way to the right. If it becomes something important, make a pencil note over there as a shade to the hypertension eating you, then go out there right in the front page and all that stuff, right? Furthermore, my defense, when you want to start to develop this habit, don't worry about retention because this is a common very young people have. Well, I'll, will I be able to retain all of this information? I'm reading it in the speed format 50, but I'm not sure if I'll remember this data. Well, that's not for you to Verde site, no. Right for you too worried right now is are you able to remember this well, so that must be your primary focus. Don't put a lot of amount of time. Don't put a lot of pressure into your head about retention when you're starting out, you can read it in a more hydration method, but get started with speed reading in that format. And don't beat yourself up to the process desk traders who can complete a book in two minutes. But at the same time, my defense, you need to realize that yeah, it's comparing their Chapter 10 with your Chapter one. That's not right thing to do. So get out there, get started with this process and I'll see you in the next video, my dear friend, when we talk about yet another very, very powerful tool, we have talked about note-taking. We also talked about speed reading. I'm going to talk about two very powerful method, very important method in your process or successful standing. Thank you so much distress while you are watching this March 30 studies. And I am so excited to see you in the next video. 20. Speed reading example: Welcome back, amazing people. Welcome, welcome, welcome back. Now this video is going to look at how the system works, whereby we're going to use and learn speed reading techniques. We are going to learn how we can speed v, the subject that you study a faster way in a more efficient way so that when you are studying, can study more in much less time. This will enable you to do more, be more. And actually that is a very important key to help you becoming successful in a wholesome because you're more efficient. You can study more in less time, which means you can study more time and therefore studied more and more than Just compounds in the whole summer learning that you are able to have simply and simply because you understand the subject better. Now when we talk about speed rating, it's a very powerful way to actually help you become a better student. Very, very powerful indeed. I've used it in my life and it has been transformation in speed reading is very, very powerful tool in deed and it's very helpful. No matter what scale you're trying to acquire, no matter what, at what level that you are trying to grow, no matter who you are, what you do, where you come from, what your family background is. Speed reading is powerful. It's very, very powerful and it's going to be very helpful for us. Well, I guess I'm going to give you example and show you practically of how this thing works. Therefore, we are going to move ahead with this. Now before we go ahead, let me tell you something really interesting about speed trading. It is actually very powerful thing. It's actually a very powerful thing because it's going to basically increase your efficiency by so, so much percentage. And that is amazing because you can get more done in less time and all of that stuff. But this specific review, I've taken an example for you of this book. It's called this book is call the a 100 one inspirational story book by remains triangle. And we are trying to learn how we can speak to it. Of course, I'm not going to be like up, jump, jump, jump, jump. Then read the whole thing just at one go. But when leading us and dense or reading a book, you're reading a page, reading a paragraph. I want to demonstrate to you how you can study much, much more and much, much less time. And I'm doing it in, in screen-share rather than in video because I've already talked a little bit about it. And I wanted to give you a broader perspective, which would only be possible if I could have this angle over here for p. Now, remember, even if you are studying with a book, this can be helpful, can be applied for you. Physical book or PDF, and both means it can be applied for your personal reference, for your learning. Let's jump right into it now. Now you see first thing you need to understand that, that most often whenever we are studying, let me take a screenshot of this to be able to make you understand a bit better. Yeah. Okay, cool. Now, if you see over here, what's basically happening is that we need a subject matter. Let me keep it in the middle. This Let's say this is a paragraph really good word to work toward, toward her to go from here to your feed in that format. And that's really time consuming thing. First of all, what I need you to do is forget this. Forget what you already know, and put a little bit of concentration into what I'm saying. You need to create an imaginary line over your like this. And an imaginary line will go like this in the beginning. You can also choose to use a scale and create a pencil line in your copy if you want. That's also an option. But yeah, this is what I used to do before as I used to use the slaves, but like now I can do it this way. Have we created this slide? You see, whenever we're studying, we study word to word, okay, from heel to heel to heel. That's how we studied most often. That's the technique we use as simple as that. But what I want you to understand is that we don't have to be steadying that way because most often the most important information is in the middle. You see in the middle segment, the most involvement information is written. And when we studied this audio, we end up studying distance that we end up turning a gap. Let me try it out. I'm going to start it from your to your to continue. And then we have to shift from year 2 back to this place. There is a loss of time that we have. Okay, and let me show you what's the right way to do so that you can apply it for yourself. Okay? What do you need to do is that you start studying over here. Now you'll be able to see words a little behind it as well. But for referential going to start from here so that you are able to navigate yourself through and therefore your way to study till you just have a look into this work, okay, then you come back to your Q will have a look at this and continue reading till we'll have a look at this, the last part of it, Let's say my rule of thumb, let's say 10 to 15 percent of text. You have to have a line over here. And therefore you study like. I'm seldom considered, though. I do more and more influence everything, you know, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. Then here. Then here, these are your points. Okay? These are your points where you start breathing. Because most of the useful information is in the between. And if you can optimize your learning time, it becomes very, very powerful. Got the idea right? Amazing. Now we're going to go a step further over here. Let me show you something even more important. I got a thick pen so that I can show you over here. Whenever you're studying, most people just read the book randomly. Okay. Physical or PDF or whatever that is. Whenever you are reading, reading through your laptop or mobile device, laptop more specifically, take the mouse and move along the cursor. Okay, whenever we're studying, move around the cursor. Now, you might be thinking, why does it make any sense at all to move a cursor above when I'm studying, I just need to study, right? Well, many times if you see when we're studying, we lose track of the line that we are studying. Has it ever happened to you that you start reading and then all of a sudden you read one sentence to sentence three centers and anything like what was the fourth? What was the third sentence so that I can go to the fourths and that's a very common challenge people have. And even if you don't realize you go through this challenge, what a better approach through is that take a pencil or when you're reading in a book and just don't don't have to put the pencil marks just teed this way. I'm getting what I'm saying with this. Yep. That's how you're supposed to do it. And it will be very, very helpful for you to pick up cursor, take a pencil, take a paint, take whatever you have, it doesn't have to be working. And that's how you can do it, right? And when you find something important, if you're getting in a PDF, it's very, very easy to highlight as well, okay, You can simply take this thing or your highlight this part. And therefore I highlight this part is something very basic, but most people don't use this tool and I'm amazed by you can do all of these CFLs quickly and that will be very, very powerful. Cvs do a lot of time. Furthermore, when it comes to speed reading my dear friends, Sometimes I want you to understand. It might be okay that you don't understand some words. Just keep treating. And this is an advisory to peak in with a lot of caution depending on the subject that you are studying right? Now very at times what happens is that whenever you're studying, you have a lot to study, you have a lot to peak in. You have a lot of information that you have to consider within yourself and learn, but you have limited time. So you go on cramming and climbing and climbing and it takes a lot of time. What is a better approach to do is that you read the whole thing fast using this P2P simple technique that I showed you. And therefore focus sometimes on the meaning of, let's say you don't understand witness word over here. You can make ice cream is capable enough that it can have an inferred meaning for you to interpret. You'll be able to understand it in some sense, right? So do not worry about that aspect of it. Your speed reading meaning is sick, is not. Secondly, it also primarily, but sometimes some words you don't understand, you can search later because it can ruin your flow. And let's say you are in all flow and you are trying to study. And when you don't understand a word, you go to Google. You start to find that word. And an eternity goes on because you go to Facebook, you go to Instagram, you go to all those website and you end up wasting a lot of your time. So you can rather look at the words later. You can just highlight them by now, therefore, have looked at them liters that you can reference to them. Okay, I hope this makes sense for you once again. And we are going to take one or two final advice right now. Because in terms specifically of speed-dating, now, another thing to consider in speed reading, you don't have to read everything if you're reading a technical subject, what most often happens is that you have topics like And I was actually an ideal student. Toefl students already, I scored 26 out of 13 toppled, which is considered extremely good. So what they thought is, is that whenever you read, you're reading a passage kind of thing. All you need to do until you have questions later you, a subject is read the first line of the first passage. Read the last line of the first passage. Therefore, read first and last line of the whole paragraph of different paragraphs that is in this essay. This way you use your time into studying them. I tried your subject and later you can delve deeper into it as well. That's your choice depending on subject and speed reading is whatever techniques I'm saying is mod 11 different exam coming just in a shorter period of time and to reference them and learn all of that stuff. That's really helpful in those periods. Is that okay? So I hope you've had a broken idea of how you can speed feed. I shared two to three small techniques. There's so many others. I did not want to get you puzzled. I hope this was helpful for you and I'll see you in the next video, right. 21. Exercises and Meditation: Welcome, welcome, welcome back, My dear friends. It's been a wonderful journey together. We are discussing a lot of productive stuff right now. Now in this particular video of the course, I want to go back and discuss with you some things is very important. We talk about all the physical things we can do far better returns and, and all that stuff. But right now we're turning this piece will end because you're not J. Sharpie said it once that if you're not doing two steps deeper, you cannot go two steps further, right? So you take a step back, go deeper, and then therefore go further. So this is what we need to dorky. Now in this video, we are going to understand about exercise and meditation. Once again, we are going to understand and discuss about exercise and many Bayesian, how does this work? Well, my dear fence, you need to understand that this dopamine him and blood oxygen level that is all around our body. Whenever we're evoking onto something we have dopamine. Dopamine releases from our body, and therefore, most of the dopamine in the brain is least for the brain, and it is used inside the beam itself, right? We need the right flow of those chemicals and enzymes using that head at the same time, the blood oxygen level is something that is very, very critical right? Now. What exercises basically, that exercise and meditation helps us relax our beam, give time for a baby to think and all of that stuff. And I then I literally, you know, research the other day that we whenever we sweat, we have certain chemicals released from our body that helps us refocus. I mean, whenever I'm tired by recording, court says, Well, I'm I'm working. What I do basically is that I go back, take a break, do some exercise, and get my body moving, take some sweat, do some meditation, and get back to work. And even though I put a lot of physical work out, the idea lies that my energy has that the amplifier because of meditation and activities and all that stuff, I find it very powerful to do meditation exercises and I'm going to give you a few amazing while so that you can do by us tiding, right? Number one, I wanted to let you know spreading sweat is really powerful tool cloud there. If there's any way you can sweat while you're studying, while they experiment with it, play around with it, and it's going to most possibly work for your favor. At the same time, let me give you a wonderful breathing technique that you can use for your studies. While you're studying when you're stressed. This is recommended to do every one after one out of steady to do these printing technique to make sure your attention is constant. But when you're in flow, it's very hard to do and I don't do it often. But whenever I need, when I'm working it, I'm going to do it right. Let me show to you how and what this printing technique is. The breathing technique is basically called Swatches, click shot. What did I just say? Swaths, breccia, what does that mean? That whenever you are supposed to take bet, this is how you do it. Let me explain to you the whole process of how this functions. You need to put all your heart to let, let's imagine you put your heart into this part of the nochmal rate. You need good sense of observation over here. You take the breathe in. All the focus is in the fact that this air going in your nose, make sure your lungs expanding, stomach is expanding. Older breed for a few seconds. Released. Once again, we'll do it together. I'm feeling much relaxed just in 222 sets of this, it is recommended to do 11 sets up this very, very powerful method. And I personally use it very often when I need to focus, right? This is called slash spec Shalit when gives you another one. And this is called the Mahabharata and 20, what Mahasi plans Winnie. What does Baja pan means? Lots of cosmic energy and Neiman sound. So the sound Grit lot of cosmic energy, right? So let me show you how it works. Again, belong within connect to your booth lips and yet keep your tongue not attached with the upper part as well as the word part nor in your teeth. It's in the between not touching any of the part. You take the breathing, humming once again, which will sort relax to do it. You'll feel it more quantities of what's happening around, you know, all that stuff. A very, very recommended way of meditation. I will start this by a month. And it has been a very helpful tool for me to be for crisp and I have to get back my focus. Now, we talked about all of these. Now let's talk about, we talked a lot about meditation. Now let's get back to exercise. Well. Exercise often takes a lot of time and understand. And when you are students, you don't want to give that time, right? But this is something I'm going to show you that consumes a lot less time and gives an equal amount of intensity in, in comparison to most of the other exercises like running all ups and downs and all that stuff. This is called the tobacco exercise. What's that about? Exercise at robotics is size is just a four minute, 45 minutes of exercise where you do certain poses, certain actions, certain body shapes, body positions where you are practicing different, you know, different body positions and all that stuff. And it has a lot of intensity. You do push ups, you do kind of setups. You are doing a lot of you know, these things, right? So go there, look what TBA looks like. Now, there's another really powerful tool for kids students. This is supposed to be done in the very morning. Again, takes not more than five minutes and just do six sets of this. And this is very powerful and it's called a pseudonymous car. What's a pseudonym or Skype comes from the variance in time. It's considered speechless when you look at the sun whenever, whichever direction it is. And you do a series of posters in your body, one after another. It has nine pauses. If I'm not wrong and go out there, look for Surya number scar, and try to make sure that you're doing this every single morning, right? And you don't have to do all these exercises just in the morning when a specific amount of whenever you need it, just going to do some jumping jacks and all that stuff and you'll start feeling better. I bet I love my aha plans when you swallow so much that I like, I would like to do it every now and then when I'm studying while I'm needing focus, while I'm working, my mind is distracted. It's too was thinking if I'm recording a lot of videos back-to-back for 20 years. There's going to be a relief that I need to give mental peace that I need. And while I needed, just do a few minutes few I said nine rounds of MA Plans money and do much much better. Also at the same time when you learned about exercising the body and it's important. One very, very important thing, is conscious eating, right? We don't talk about that very often. That's boiling wherever I like eating burgers and pits us, well, it's awesome, but this is what the old boss used to say in my language. Jsr can vest. I haven't like the quality of food that you eat directly impacts the quality of work you do, the quality of study you do. So just very highly recommended. The signs also confirmed this m, that you don't go on, you know, eating a lot of spicy food when you need to focus on your exercise and all that stuff, don't do that. You can eat a little bit salty thing a little now and then but don't eat a lot of spicy stuff. It's going to work negatively for you. When you are a student, you required a state of flu, you required all of that. And if your body's not in that I push Shift, your hormones are not connected the right way. If you're not in the right state of mind, it's going to be very, very, very hard to get that level of focus. So p very conscious sprouts are really recommended to be eaten in the morning. If a student enrollments is very, very powerful, I have a box right in front of me which says a few of all these other wonderful thing is cached units, right? Cashflows is also powerful, but this is another brain like I'm not going to show you the name because I want to research is which, which fruit looks like B, right? Go out there, find whatever that is, each six to ten of them every now and it looks like a B that's so sweet obviously might be good for brain rate. These signals that the teacher gives to us on a lighter note. So basically go there, make sure you're eating habits are right. You're meditating every now and then. Also you are taking the right amount of pauses. Then you need to meditate and all that stuff, Right? There's an application of gemacht Medea itself, very basic application that will ring you every now and then. You can do, you can do long breathing out there, or you can also choose to do my HA plan when MIT offense. That's what I wanted to show it to you in the meditation as well as exercise segment of this course. We are approaching towards the end of this course is there are some more wonderful techniques that I'm, you know, I'm going to share you meanwhile, thank you so much for being with me throughout this time. I am so damn excited to see you in the next 32. 22. Managing your Environment: Okay, welcome back, wonderful champion family V. Ij here discussing about some amazing ways to use your wonderful intelligence and studied best, better in different ways possible. This is a map of your working. You're watching a wonderful series of smart cities, smart steady. And here we are to discuss yet again, wonderful method for you to study more effectively. And right now we are talking about getting yourself the right environmental. Let me explain what I mean by that. You see, they know you're sitting to study. There's so many things beyond the content that are influencing. Know, there's so much external factors that are involved there. So much physical stimulation that are involved, just so much external environmental factors that are involved. The question for anybody who wants to study is that how they manage all these external stuff in a way that it is not harming their study procedure. And that's what we're here to discuss about in this specific videos. Might be a friend. We are discussing about different aspects with which we can make the external environment while you're studying more, more helpful for us to retain information Beta. First of all, we need to talk about sound. So there's a lot of misconception. There is lot of question if music should be used when studying or not. And some people while this steady have a lot of merge issues like where that studying There's a lot of factory noise that comes from behind. Like there's a lot of noise from outside, from the home. Some people do not have a separate room to study, especially in the southeastern part of the world as well as the Middle East part of the world. So what we're going to hear discuss is how we can create a environment while studying. First of all, talking about music. Well, number one, if you have a lot of Baghdad losing that are disturbing for having some white music, right? What is right music. White music basically are overlapping music that the US, while we're trying to study anything. What this overlapping music does is, it, it seems is the outside noise. You know, if you are hearing the noise from outside, it replaces it with the sound here. These are sounds of freedom, the other concentration musics out there that you can listen to, you might or might not want to put your phone because depending on the person, earphones might be a good idea and might work the other way around for some people as well. So it's completely a personal choice that you have to look into yourself. But what's really important is that you need to get that light music, maybe offense. Now, important thing while you're studying is to have the right feedback mechanism. I very, very importantly believe that having the right feedback mechanism whenever you are trying to study is very essential for one simple reason. You see whenever you're studying that a lot of external factors at play. And while you're studying a PC, while you're studying in mobile as it works right now virtually. It's so important that we know various spending our time. Has it ever happened to you that you are studying? You said that you study the full day and you realize that when you're not steady enough, you did not get the full out of your studies. Where did your time go? Put that to have a wonderful tool to share to you. This tool is called DEX time. It's mostly used for, you know, far team management to trap teams, work record speed, etcetera. But I use it personally for me as well so that I can study effectively. Let me show to you how decks, time books and you can get it for your laptop. Now if you're using your mobile phone, there is an alternative that you can use that as equally as powerful lets you know where your time is going. Because at this point of time in this is we spend so much of our time into social media, even though we think like, okay, this is not what I'm supposed to do, but we end up doing it. So this is a very powerful tool. And you can download other application, new mobile phone that can be very helpful. Let me show you again, screen-share you of what you can do about it. Now, I already shared to your border Demosthenes concept of how Demosthenes literally shaved his head into two halves in Toyota having hearings the half part, not having sharing the pie. Just for the sake that he can focus when just for the sake that he has a good retention just for the signatory does not go off to distractions, right? What is the physical stimulus that you can have in your room so that you can study effectively. In my room, in my table most often I keep a white little stone, right? And I call it a gratitude. Luck if you have seen my course of gratitude, you know what I'm talking about, if not quite what gratitude truck is every now and then when I'm distracted or anything comes from our end, whenever I have an ion, the gratitude or a member, one small thing that I can be grateful, right? I have a vision board along with me, but it helps me realize that these are my goals. And the small thing that I'm doing is helping me add up to that I have a different course made on the vision board is when it's a very, very powerful technique and you have no idea how transformational it could be for you. Furthermore, my idea friends along with the vision board, we have other things in my room. I have a lot of these things. If you see the quotations, then we read a few for you. No dream too big or too small, right? And here it is. Mistakes are proof that you are trying. It says either write things worth reading or do things worth writing. And so the best way to have a good idea is to have lots of ideas. Dina's Pauling rate, you put out there and spend as many times create an environment where you're encouraging your central and just in front of me are two stickers. One says genius is 1% inspiration and 99 percent precipitation. And this comes from Thomas Edison. So can you create an environment around yourselves where, you know the environment is encouraging you to study the environment is helping you in your goal of personal excellence. Helping you in your goal of understanding yourself better. If you can create a physical stimulus around the place that you are practicing. Believe me, that nature hips you at the same time in the creative thinking curiosity course I told to you also about connotative meaning derivation. So you look at the atria concept, you look at a chocolate. What can you learn from a chocolate as well? The wrapper outside is something that can be taken off and tune, but what's inside is what is tasty. Similarly in life, there's an external factors like your cloths and all these things are secondly, what really matters is does your chocolate have the right amount of juice? Do you have the guts in the of energy? The other wonderful quote that I read the other day, it was, it's not about the amount of the dog in the fight. It's not about the dog in the fight, but the fight in the dog. So my idea, friends, That's what I want to share to you. Have a right environment, build environment, have a lot of sticky notes. It's a very powerful, we have a lot of sticky notes around 2030. And only if not 15, not 10 to 20 of them all around my room. I have physicals to my Smiley pictures all over that can help me stay focused. You know, these little stimulus are often very helpful but we ignored it most often like when physical stimulus work, they worked really well. But the something else is with, and that is what I call resilience stimulus. So there are times when you find really hard to study here, you're already to get distracted and at that point of time, something else to keep you focused. Demosthenes put his head into, how can you put your legs entangled into a sheet, into people's? Can you call your friend and say that if I don't complete this lesson, I have to pay you 5000 rupees. Can you give us in all these challenges all the way to keep yourself in the right state of mind when you know you are supposed to study might be offends, you know, very important to understand that you need to have a very exact week events, lead paint, I'm talking about environment, whole lot of different things being covered in India. But it's important to understand, it's important to question. Do you, my dear friend, have a specific wake-up time, a specific sleep time. Because we don't realize these small things, but they're so damn powerful. If you wake up to see him right time we're able to sleep that I tend to sleep the right time you have even to become the right time. And our body needs are consistent circadian rhythm. If you disturb your circadian rhythm every now and then, headwind feel lousy even though you're spending 12 hours of study, you know, that's what we're talking about. Shallow work, you'll be doing shallow work if you don't have enough. That's why I'm Roger Federer has literally sleeps for ten hours a day because he knows he has to do lot of physical stuff out there. Right. You need to have a proper sleep as well as wake up each well. Furthermore, my dear friends, you need to have a clear to-do list when you are studying, right? So what do you need to do that before sleeping? Every single D write down what you are supposed to study next day, right? Remember this thing, okay. The data's not start, the deed starts, it starts the evening of the D before you plan out everything that you want to study the next exact goals, right? Smart goals that are specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound with Gao De, create goals, smart goals for yourself the day before. And I highly recommend to you using to-do list as a tool to manage your time. And it has a very good tool you have, you can highlight what's really important as red, yellow, blue, et cetera. You can convert it into different channels and segment to-do list. Go there, let me show you how this works right now. Also, my dear friends, depending on who you are, Google Calendar might be a very good option for you to structure your day at the same time, you can use Mumbai and reminders for yourself. Do you know that this is the time I need to get this right, that right, depending on the person you are, It's a very amazing tool once again. So my dear friends, this is what I wanted to share to you in terms of environment and see you in the next video. 23. Course Conclusion: Okay, My dear friends. So finally we're towards the end of this course, such a beautiful journey we've made together to some easing, sharing what I learned as a student to all of you to help me optimum boat held me optimize your time and I'm I'm very, very sure that this in turn will be helpful for us. Well, before we close down, I want to give you a quick review of everything that we learned. This is the conclusion video of this course. First of all, we took up an understanding about our memory in itself, about how we have a 2.5 petabytes of memory, which is that the lake, you know, watching for kiddy movies for 300 years. Conveniently, we have that memory. So that complaint is not genuine rate. We all can have a good memory they think is we need to learn that I tricks and tactics. That's what we discussed from the very first period. That's the framework, that stuff, very ground assumption, which is either guarantee on which we build this course. Then we learned about the power of mnemonics, my dear friends, we knew about how, you know, using some kind of plutonium at places using some kind of, you know, like bold, much like my very efficient mother never, you know, give us nuts, right? All those stuffs we learned about how they have a wonderful path to help us retain whatever we are trying to learn and we learned about how to apply it. We saw some wonderful examples as well. I tried to make it add demonstration as possible so that in the process of learning, you can actually see the places where you can apply all these learnings as well. That was my very cool effort from the very beginning of this course. Further, we talked about the memory palace. I had a very long demonstration specifically crafted for you so that you can reflect on whatever we talked about, trade. You can give yourself clear assumption, clear understanding of what it is. It's basically just to advise you to basically like visualization L palace where we put different objects into different parts of a specific journey or a drought or a place so that we can deflect on different paths to memory. That's what we learned in the memory palace we had in the most efficient. But we learn different elements of the periodic table. I hope you can remember that as well. Very well. Let's go ahead and now talk about the other elements are the segments. Other thing that we discussed in the course, we discussed how the portraits effect and the Feynman technique, whereby the actual learning process happens when we ask a lot of questions. When we are in a mode of teaching rather than learning, learning it in a way that we can teach efficiently as well. This actually enables us to be in a position where we can reflect on what we're learning. We can have a clear idea of what we're trying to learn. And that in turn is very, very helpful for other people as well. So I hope you're getting a broader idea about the Feynman technique. It has helped me a lot. It is many of my students and me, me to teach. I say you have to create a course on this. All you have to create a project on this, and that's how this course is working as well. You're supposed to put out a project at the end of this course. Let's move of wave forward. We talked about the Cal Newport model, the BIPOC model, the different models in which you can choose to work to have your efficiency, right? I hope you remember about that. There were different models. It would be too too long if I when discussing each about each of them at this point of time as this is the conclusion video of this course, we talked about the reward and risk loop thereby having specific downfall that if I am not able to complete this, this is what I'll have to suffer. This is what I'll have to pay. This is what I'll have to consider as punishment in a form of not completing it. And when you get it tried to reward yourself, some kind of gift could be as small as a piece of chocolate or calling your friend or something like that. That's the part of the reward and risk loops to talk about the another penguins that is Edenic effect. Let me not recall on you on that because I don't want to make this conclusion video really long. I just want to make sure that you are able to recall on yourself whatever we learned throughout this course. A step further, my dear friends, I want to show you of what we learned. We learned about the beautiful, beautiful part of speech repetition. Now, Spaced repetition is the part of repeating something over non usable amount of time like an either be few days a month and I recommend it. I recommend to you an application right now. I probably I did before as well called Inky, which can be very, very helpful for you to be able to make sure that you had actually being able to put a good speech repetition. We also learned about my personal model versus shade you about how I was able to overcome procrastination, focus better on my studies. And I was at my tenth grade using a sheet where I was avoiding myself and distracting my distractions, whether the board for me in a form of 30%, but gradually, you can put it down to 20 percent and 10 percent and 5% according to your needs and requirement and all of that stuff. My defense, I hope you're getting a broader idea. Let me move a step further. We talked about note-taking methods I share to you about mind-mapping. A very long video about Mapping. I showed you various examples that demonstrate mind-mapping, how it works, and the actual application of the same. Therefore, I also had a lesson on coordinating note-taking that I showed you how coordinate is taken. We had a few examples. Write the input of these fields, mind-mapping and coordinate method. And I'm sure that we are very helpful for you at this point of time. Let's go a step further. My defense, we talked about reading skills, how you can read more efficiently, and also how you can retain for a long amount of time, but also speed read simultaneously. That is one of the most important skills I do believe we need as humans at this point of time because you want more information to jot down. We want one convention to come in and at the same time want to make sure that we are able to retain them really well. So that's what we discussed in the reading. The reading skills segment of this course might be offense. Furthermore, we had a discussion about different stuff. I'll come to you on that. Let me show you what we learned in terms of the environment, in the exercises and meditation. We talked about how we can meditate and use the power of meditation basically to leverage in your learning process in a wholesome. We learned about how different kinds of mutation can book I showed you a demonstration of beating vegetation, specific exercises that I recommended to you. We also, in the last part of this course, discuss about how having the right environment is essential for your learning process. So my defense, this is what we learned in the environment. We learned about how we should not have lot of longstanding shock and all aptitude, rock and all of that stuff. So that's what I wanted to talk to you about. Specific media might influence. It was such a beautiful journey in this. When we discussed about smart study and all that stuff, I cannot wait to see you in next of my courses if you are watching this second course directly, there's a SQL first sequel to this course already available. My profile, you can check it out. We have beautiful courses on public speaking life skills and all that stuff. You can reach out to me at VAB, VAB HIV at the rate of VIP HAB ME in terms of inequalities you have. I'm also available on Instagram, Facebook, linkedin, any other place? Tiktok and all these icons which have any questions, feel free to reach out. My mission is to impact life of ten crows students in helping them become champion, specifically students in school and in life as well. Thank you so much for being a part of the journey by taking this course. I cannot wait to see you in next off my courses, other courses that I have so that I can impact you in a more broader perspective. I can touch your life in a more rich way. So that's what I wanted to talk to you about in this video. That's what we discussed throughout this course. Different models. Once again, I have wonderful very heart of a lot of hard work put into it. Beautiful courses designed on subjects like public speaking, gratitude, focus, concentration, as well as confidence. We have courses on subjects coming soon, broader courses on public speaking and all of that stuff as well. Curiosities, of course, we discussed many people liked it a lot as well. So that's what I wanted to talk to you about in this course. Buh-bye, and have a great time.
