9/30/16: Six Hacks to Help You Learn Anything Faster

Staying competitive often means learning new things. Multiple research studies indicate that you can learn and retain information faster, giving you the professional edge you need to advance:

  1. Teach someone else (or just pretend to): You tend to turn to more effective strategies to retain knowledge.
  2. Learn in short bursts of time: Somewhere between 30-50 minutes is the right amount. Then take a break.
  3. Take notes by hand: Not as a fast as typing on a laptop, but less mindless. Your comprehension improves because writing notes demands that you be a more active listener.
  4. Use the power of mental spacing: Review information every few days after learning it – like keeping your lawn green and watering it frequently as opposed to only once a during the summer.
  5. Take a study nap: Get your rest between learning sessions.
  6. Change it up: When practicing a new task or motor skill, try a slightly modified version each time to help you master it.
