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

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.

Know How To Have Successful Start To Your Day

“Every morning we are born again. What we do today is what matters most.”
Buddha

 

 

It’s still dark outside as the unavoidable alarm bell goes off! This first thing you do is pulling up your curtain and a very refreshing atmosphere is waiting for you outside of the window.

 
The moment you stumble out of bed and go into the shower, a new day just begins for you.

 
Now the question is- how to have a successful start of your day?

 
Always remember one thing that what you do at the beginning of a new morning sets the tone for the entire day and now choice is yours. It’s your decision and you can decide it as soon as you wake up, that today will be a great day for you. Yes, as I told you, this is your choice of the day.
You can simply choose to be in a complete positive frame of mind.

 
All it needs a successful start of a day because a good start sets you up for a more fulfilling and productive day.

 
The method of starting a good day consists of few simple steps.

 
Make a list …..not an essay!

 
Just before hitting the bed tonight, you should definitely invest sometimes for yourself and start making a list of very important thing that needs to be done tomorrow. Leave the note beside you so that you can read it just after waking up.

 
Don’t be an alarm puppet:

 
At least have thirty minutes between the time you press the snooze off button and get out of the bed! This span of thirty minutes is the most crucial time because this time is completely yours and you should use this time to set the good mood for rest of the day. Today is yours and of course today will bring the best thing for you.

 
Make sure you are not lying in the span of this thirty minutes because it could again make you fall asleep.

 
Wake yourself properly with some little exercises like stretching.

 

 

Now go for a walk….not a walking race!

 
The whole purpose of walking outdoor for fifteen minutes to half an hour is to enjoy the nature outside. Recite some positive affirmation as you walk. Enjoy the cool air and whistle of birds. Think about all the good things that have happened to you and things that you should be grateful for.

 
Once you are back to home, take a shower and enjoy a light breakfast. Start your journey at least 10 minutes before the scheduled time so that you won’t have to rush

 

 

Setting a low bar for happiness is actually important. It will make you grateful for every little thing that makes you happier that you used to take for granted like having a roof over the head. It actually makes you stay positive and at the same time you will find simple happiness throughout the day.

 

 

Finally- “Why so serious? Put some smile on that face”!

 

 

Nope, it’s not putting smile on the face like Batman’s Joker but yes, a smiling face can make the entire day smoother. Keeping a light smile for every tiny happiness would make you feel good and positive!
