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

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.

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.

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.
