Just like the way for muscular growth we need to train every day little bit, for neural growth we need to train everyday

Pre frontal cortex 4 chunks By repetition with time, we move the item to Long term memory Spaced repetitions .Not a good idea to repeat on a single day as it is difficult to build the neural structure in a single day.

• Pre frontal cortex • 4 chunks • By repetition with time, we move the item

Working memory

Practice and repetition strengthens to learn something new.

Staying awake creates Toxins. Sleep washes away toxins. It erases less important things and strengthens important things.

When we are stuck in a problem or unsure about something, instead of focusing on the issue ,let things settle down for neural processing to happen at the background.

How to learn something new

BY Practical experience

Boring lecture, what to do

Ask Q

How to take advantage of diffused mode

Jogging and exercise

How to multitask

Multi task is context switching. You cannot multi-task, rather it requires training

How do you apply your neural network environment

1. Have a stimulating and rich environment is helpful rather than locking yourself in a room

2. In absence of rich environment, exercising helps to grow new neurons.

More effective techniques to focus or learn

Being in a creative environment boosts the creative process.

How to be better test takers

Don’t be stuck up on a single problem. You can always come back

How to keep up with the creative process

Having youth around helps.

 

Success does not necessarily come with smartness. Lot of success comes with passionate and persistence .

We ordinarily think of learning as something we do when we sit down to study a book. But actually, being able to learn more easily and deeply involves many important facets--including not only periods of focused concentration, but also periods of relaxation, and even times when the body is simply out getting exercise. Your brain can be busy figuring things out during times when you have absolutely no conscious awareness of it.

Diffused mode is thinking and it is creative. While editing mode is concentrated.

Separate thinking from editing.

editing.

When learn something new and speaking publicly about it, we are criticized. Leadership is the ability to disguise panic. It may only be through repeated experience that one learns how to cope with that a little bit better. The only advice I can give to others is to always adopt the same kind of curiosity about your own shortcomings and your own difficulty getting the big picture and understanding the entire scope of the problem that you would apply to others and to, to any problem in general. Ie Be willing to accept some discomfort sometimes.

Though something is done in the world, when we do it ourselves it still enhances our creativity.

Some people would say that it's only when you experience some discomfort that you're actually accomplishing some kind of change. So, to the extent that one wants to make progress, it's necessarily going to involve some degree of discomfort. Openness and non-agreement/non-conformism ,those who challenge the status-quo, has a positive correlation with creativity. It is important to find the fine line between being agreeable and disagreeable. whatever the product is, to be considered creative has to be new. But then it also has to be useful or valued by someone. So, this involves a kind of attention between doing something that may be totally driven by your own vision of things, and those things that are going to end up being adopted or used by others. So it means that you can create things that may be novel, wonderful, and strange. But if they're too novel, too strange, then they're not going to be considered wonderful by others. So finding this sweet spot in the range between what you find to be the newest and most valuable and exciting. And what others believe is I think that's a lifelong process of, of deliberation and balance. Best learning techniques Power of 10 exercise.

About Learning new languages.

Children tend not to be perfectionist. However adults are conscious of mistakes. Children are not over analyzing about mistakes. Being willing to make mistake and learning from my mistake.

Try different techniques while learning a new language.

Use Promodoro technique for intense focus.

Use both diffused learning and focused learning to learn new things.

Zoom in and out while learning

Practice and spaced repetitions should be used for abstract learning

Sleeping, stimulating environment and exercising are very important for learning and creativity
