Lesson 4: Preparing your mind to learn

Frequently encourage oneself with positive thinking: I like myself I love my work I am really good at it I am healthy, I feel happy, I feel terrific I can learn anything I need to know to accomplish any goal that I ever set for myself

Set clear goals, long term ones, and break them in sub-goals. Use transition times to learn: listen podcasts or other materials in the spare times. Set specific deadlines for the tasks and discipline to put aside other activities and focus on achieving my goals on time. Share goals with other people in order to motivate yourself.

Procedures to do in advance to learn anything: Calm your mind: deep relaxation Using relaxing classical music in the background Deep breathe and hold the airs. Relax neck and shoulders: roll around neck and shoulders, shake your hands to get out the tension. Close eyes and listen to the music Comfortable in clothes and sitting arrangements Set rewards for accomplishments (breaks, coffee, messages) Visualise your goals

Lesson 5: Getting the Facts

Different main approaches to learn: Visual, auditory and physical experience. If you are a visual learner: see things, read things, explore graphs and diagrams, write down notes, words and pictures. If you are an auditory learner: asking questions, listening to people, listening audio cassettes, remember things that you hear. If you are a physical learner: get the hands on it, practice the new skill ability, try it out, do every step of the procedure by your own.

The optimum objective is to become a multi-sensorial learner, using the various approaches above simultaneously.
