Three Steps to Learning Anything Fast

Aug 17, 2007
When I hear students tell me they don't get the grades they want because they aren't as smart as the others, I get chills.

You see, it's not always a question of intelligence when it comes to learning. It's just as much a question of learning strategies that make things easier. Successful kids have strategies. That's what makes them successful.

There are 3 steps you need in order to learn anything fast (and easy, too!). The problem is, people (young and old), want to skip one of the steps and get right to the success part. Well, successful students don't cut corners.

The ones that do end up frustrated, discouraged, and unable to understand why they can't seem to learn like other people. I'm here to tell you that it all comes down to these three points.

#1 - Organize what it is you need to learn. If you're studying, organize the topics and the material so that you understand the "whole story." Not just isolated facts. That goes for a history test, a driver's test, a pilot's license test, you name it. When you have things organized, then you can see how different parts relate to each other and you develop an understanding.

#2 - Use memory skills to remember the details. Once you organize things, you need to remember the lengthy sections. For example, if you're studying to be a massage therapist, you need to learn about body systems and sensory receptors. Now, there are a lot of sub-groups within these main topics and the best way to remember these sub-groups is with memory strategies.

Now, keep in mind, I didn't say memory strategies replace understanding the material. I said, once you understand, then it's time to commit it to memory. It does you no good to be a "know-it-all" the night before the test and then "go blank" the next day. This is where memory skills save your behind.

#3 - You have to develop a winning mindset. You have to believe you can learn, believe you can remember the information, and believe you can show it when necessary. Success only goes to the people who believe it's possible.

Sound simple?

Success takes a combination of effort and learning strategies. These three steps represent a strategy. You need to give the effort. Start today and find the success you have been looking for.

If you do, you will be unbeatable. You will learn in half the time with half the effort. That's how you learn anything fast.

Ok, what are you going to do now?
