It has been fully confirmed that if you want to grow in life then you have to learn new things, new techniques from time to time. In this way, you will be in a position to achieve more goals in life.
Now only learning is not enough but you have to learn things faster. Yes, read it right you have to learn things quicker. You see now-a-days technology is changing day by day and if you will not adept them in life you will lose many benefits.
For example, to save your time now you can transfer money from your account to parents account in just a matter of minute by the help of apps. If you will not use such technology then you are wasting your time and energy by going bank. Further, such things you can learn fast in 20 minutes. So, in the article, we are going to see five techniques to learn anything fast. Let’s get started.
The Power Of Being A Practical Learner
Now the first technique is you have to be an active learner. Actually, there are two kinds of learners. First being passive and second being active.
Passive learners are those who try to learn things by listening and observing as we learn in school and colleges.
In this case, someone keeps on sharing knowledge through PowerPoint, charts and whiteboard. Whereas in the case of an active learner they learn by doing things and by actively participating.
For example, just like you learn playing cricket, driving and how to use a computer. The same way you have to do things and learn. If you are learning how to design a website then you shouldn’t just take the theoretical knowledge but you should start practising in getting your hands dirty. This is the best way of learning things fast.
The Power Of Right Mental State
Whenever you want to learn new things or new techniques it requires times and efforts. Actually, it is not easy to learn new things because now-a-days we have many responsibilities to take care of. But if you are hungry and ready to learn then there is nothing impossible.
To learn any new things it demands your right mental attitude and state. If you are not in the right mental stage you will have difficulties in learning new things fast.
For example, when I am in the right mental condition I can write and complete one article within two hours. But if I am not in the right state I require at least three hours to think and finish my writing. This is the power of having in the right mental state.
The Power Of Sharing And Teaching
Now if you want to learn and remember things for a longer time then you have to teach what you have learned. Yes, this is the another fastest way to learn new things. If you know that tomorrow you have to teach someone then you will make sure that you understand each and everything well.
And when you teach someone then two magical things happen. First, you start learning well and second you remember things well because you have to teach someone else. For example, I remember when I use to teach MS Office to my students I use to learn and practice things every night and morning so I could understand things better.
Learn By Curiosity And Excitement
If you want to learn anything faster then you must show curiosity and have excitement like a small child. There must be some fire inside your belly. I remember some of my school mates use to understand things fast.
When I notice then I realised that they learn new things with lots of curiosity and excitement. They learned because they wanted to know about them. They learned faster because they are always eager to understand those topics. Life also demands this same thing from us. If you show interest in life and learning then definitely you will learn fast. For example, if you will notice that some kids learn things fast not because they are highly intelligent but because they are curious to learn things.
To achieve this during learning don’t concentrate on multiple things. Just focus on one thing and learn deeply as much as possible. Clear your thoughts and learn with an open mind. Discuss as much as possible or ask for help from mentors. And you will learn well and fast.
Write And Revise Things
Last but not least thing which you can do is start making your own notes and as you start learning you need to keep on revising things. Yes, if you really want to learn and understand things fast then you have to repeat the process as much as possible.
For example, if you want to learn how to bat then you have to practice as a batsman as much as possible. You have to discuss things with your coach, take notes and then practice again. In the same way, you will become a good driver if you drive a car often inside and outside your city after understanding the basic parts of cars. The more you will revise better you will become.
In this way, you can learn anything faster and in the best possible manner. Remember that because technology is changing therefore we have to keep on learning and understanding them. Suddenly, corona and lockdown came and the vast majority of people lost their jobs. Now, people are understanding the power of digital marketing.
