Change Your Life in just 5-minutes a day!

Yes, you can Change Your Life in just 5-minutes a day!

Having trouble to get things done? Don’t worry! In this exclusive article for Brightspot.tv, we are going to show you some great tips to maximize your time and achieve more!

Set aside time to do activities that you truly love

Doing something you love can go a long way to keeping you happy, motivated and achieving more. Unfortunately, we usually do the things we hate while ignoring the ones we would really like to do. Just think about all the things you love and make sure you do at least one of them even if it’s for just 5 minutes, to begin with. You’ll see how everything is brighter after doing something like this.

Focus your top priorities

One thing is to stay busy. The other is to achieve what’s really important, your priorities. Start with your priorities and focus on the junk later.

You can do this by writing down your schedule religiously and ahead of time and make sure your priorities account for 90% of what you have to do, at the very least. And if you notice that you’re not focusing on your top priorities, make the necessary changes.

Group similar tasks together

Think of an assembly line in a factory. As the activities are the same or similar, it’s much easier to get a lot done in a short amount of time. If instead, factory workers had to stop after each task is completed and move on to a different one and then onto a different one, things would take ages to be finished. You should learn from that. Group similar tasks together, work seamlessly on all of those, and once you are done with them, just move on to another group of similarly related tasks.

Write down your deadlines

If you don’t have deadlines, you are just hoping something might get done. You are just dreaming. There’s nothing wrong with dreaming if you can turn those dreams into action. For that, nothing better than deadlines.
You need a game plan with clear goals and a deadline to achieve them. After all, a goal is a dream_ with a deadline.

Work every day on a mini-goal to get you closer to your big goal(s)

If your want to run a marathon, you can’t just wake up one day and decide to compete the following day, especially if you’ve never run before. Your goal may be to run a marathon, but you need to work daily and systematically to achieve that big goal ahead. This applies to every aspect of your life. Use it to your advantage.

Remember Everything!

How to Remember Everything!

How to remember virtually anything!

Try these eight hacks to super-power your memory.

Pay attention

 It may seem pretty common sense but if you want to remember something, you need to pay attention to it in the first place.  Skip this step and all the following tips will not be of any help for you.

Visualize it

65% of the world population is believed to be visual.  Your chances  to recall something will be higher if whatever you read you try to associate it with an image — the sillier the image you can think of, the easier it will be to recall later.

Try brain games

 Brain-stimulating games like sudoku. Lumosity and crosswords are believed to activate synapses in the whole brain, which impact positively the memory areas and memory retention.

 

Create a Memory Palace

Psychologists John O’Keefe and Lynn Nadel explain this in The Hippocampus as a Cognitive Map:

In this technique the subject memorizes the layout of some building, or the arrangement of shops on a street, or any geographical entity which is composed of a number of discrete loci. When desiring to remember a set of items the subject literally ‘walks’ through these loci and commits an item to each one by forming an image between the item and any distinguishing feature of that locus. Retrieval of items is achieved by ‘walking’ through the loci, allowing the latter to activate the desired items.

You can put this in action by  “walking” through the rooms of your house or apartment mentally while attaching information to each room. Later you can try to remember all the information be visually returning to each room.

 

Take a nap

Taking naps boosts learning and memory, according to NASA sleep researchers. A  2008 study also showed that brain activity in individuals who take regular naps is  much higher all day long than in those who don’t do it.

Label people

Whenever you meet someone for the first time, visualize their names written across their foreheads. Even better results have been found when individuals imagined the names being written in their favorite color marker, according to a CNN report.

Eat your Omega-3s

The regular consumption of omega-3s enhances working memory in healthy young individuals. Consuming foods that are high in Omega-3s fat also lowers your risk of developing mental diseases such as Alzheimer’s, according to a 2012 Columbia University study.

Outsourcing

Work Smarter, Not Harder_ and make more money!

 

1. Get in Touch with Talented People

Just about every entrepreneur who accomplishes financial success is aware of the fact that they are unable to do everything on their own. Surrounding oneself with talented individuals helps us attain our objectives and it gives us the chance to delegate an ever larger list of important assignments as well. If you are presently juggling innumerable work projects, you will need to make any necessary changes to lighten your burden. Always bear in mind that this change alone can make or break your business.

 

2. Outsource as Many Tasks as Possible
This will enable you to save a lot of time and energy while saving you the costly errors that frequently derive from working non-stop on a weekly basis. As the saying goes: “Do what you do best and outsource the rest.”

 

3. Choose the opportunities presented to you
Even though you may be faced with several business opportunities, you need to sort through your options to select those that will enhance your profits without increasing your workload.

 

4. Don’t allow Social Media access during work hours
Social media play a vital role in every company and every company must have an active role in them. However, Social Media can also be a huge waste of employee productivity time. Not allowing access to Social Media will improve the workers’ productivity immediately.

 

5. Shorten Your Meetings
Meetings are a waste of productive time. Keep them short and to the point. Structure your meetings so you can make sure that every little thing will be dealt with quickly. Everyone will learn to be more concise and make every second matter.

You’ll be surprised to see how these five time-tested tips can boost your income to work time ratio dramatically and it will also make it a lot easier to achieve your personal and business goals.

The Learning Pyramid

Remembering over 90% Of Whatever You Learn

Wish you could learn faster?

Whether you’re learning Spanish, a new instrument, or a new sport, we could all benefit from accelerated learning. But the problem is, there’s only so much time in the day.

Scientific studies show that human beings remember:

  • 5% of what learned from a lecture (i.e. school lectures)
  • 10% of what they learn from reading (i.e. textbooks, articles)
  • 20% of audio-visual (i.e. programs, videos)
  • 30% of what they see in a demonstration
  • 50% of what they learn when they engage in a group discussion.
  • 75% when they practice what they learned.
  • 90% of what they prepare to teach others

 

This is known as THE LEARNING PYRAMID

The Learning Pyramid
The Learning Pyramid

 

However, the current educational system seems to be upside down, and even after we finish school, we repeat what we learned there, which is totally wrong!
Textbooks, classroom lessons, and videos are non-interactive learning approaches. That is why 80 to 95% of that information goes in one ear and out the other.

Instead, we need to focus almost exclusively on “hands-on” methods that have proven to produce much more successful results, in significantly less time.


 

Active Learning Explained


This clearly suggests that:

  • If you want to learn how to speak a foreign language, you must focus on speaking with native speakers instead of relying on textbooks and videos as your primary source of information.
  • If you want to get fit, you need to work with a coach instead of reading Muscle Magazines only.
  • If you need to learn a new instrument, work wth a musician instead of online guitar lessons.

 

Now you know! It’s up to you take a shortcut to the most effective learning backed by science.
