Unstoppable You How To Tap Into Your Awesome Learning Power

You're reading Unstoppable You – How To Tap Into Your Awesome Learning Power, originally posted on Pick the Brain | Motivation and Self Improvement. If you're enjoying this, please visit our site for more inspirational articles. Learning is like breathing. Something we do because we are alive. Something we usually take for granted. But should we? We were primed for learning in the womb – every hour our brains added 250,000 neurons so that we could process the world when we arrived. Then, as a child, our default programming (let’s call it Learning 1.0) shaped the basic structure and wiring of our brains as we learned through trial and error and imitation. We upgraded our learning capability again when, through experiences in school we upgraded to Learning 2.0 – internalizing society’s knowledge and more structured learning approaches (e.g., how to study). Once on our own, we cobbled together our own way of dealing with life’s challenges at work, at home, as a citizen. We crafted a personalized approach – enter the next version of our internal learning software -- Learning 3.0. But Learning 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0 are not good enough today. This world is changing very rapidly and presenting us with many complex conditions and challenges that require a new learning paradigm.Of course, there is an increasing array of support we can access – in apps, online courses, blogs, or by cruising Google, Cable TV, social media (caveat: beware of biases!), and more. We truly live in an accelerating and often confusing knowledge era. And it will only get more complex and diverse as information expands and technology provides new tools for learning, outsourcing our memories, and connecting with others in novel ways. It’s a new learning landscape, and we need a new way of thinking about and approaching learning. I call this new way, Learning 4.0. It’s 21st Century learning that you do on your own and with others. It’s a framework to use when you help others learn – your children, people you lead, people who want you to share your expertise for any reason. And, Learning 4.0 is a framework to guide your learning in the moment (out of curiosity or opportunism), extracting learning from past experience (think of the learning locked up in those experiences you regret or remember with pride), and when you have a learning goal that may take some time to reach.

How to Build Your Side Business While Working Full Time

May 27 12:39am Pick the Brain | Motivation and Self Improvement
You're reading How to Build Your Side Business While Working Full Time, originally posted on Pick the Brain | Motivation and Self Improvement. If you're enjoying this, please visit our site for more inspirational articles. Building a business is hard. What about building a business on the side while working full time? I built a freelancing business while studying dentistry, and I'm just 20 years old. And I forgot to mention that my GPA was 3.92 during my first 2 years. It seems impossible to a lot of people, but I did it. And the secret is rather simple. I know what I need to do, and I do it. But there's a bit more to it than that. In this post, you will discover the 3-tier planning method I use to know what I need to do and how I carry out focused actions to get more done in less time. The result? You can build your business even if you don't have a lot of spare time. The 3-Tier Planning Method Your time is limited. That's why planning is very important. Because planning can be complicated and because of specific problems I've faced from time to time, I've developed a simple process to help me plan things out and keep moving in the right direction. I call it the 3-tier planning method. The 3-tiers are: The 100,000-foot view The 10,000-foot view The 100-foot view Let's go into more detail about each of these. Note: I have created a simple checklist to help you apply this planning method, so make sure to grab your checklist, then continue reading this post. The 100,000-foot view Here you look at the big picture. I like to make it for every quarter or every 100 days. So you set a goal that you want to achieve in the next quarter and write out a detailed plan about how you want to achieve it. Let's take an example: Goal: Create a product and start selling it in 90 days Steps: Brainstorm product ideas Validate the idea by interacting with people on a FB group Outline the course Record every module Setup a membership site Setup an order form Create a sales page Offer a discount for my email list and get the first 10 customers Now, we have the100,000-foot view. This will give you a clear big picture and ensure that you're going to finish on time. The 10,000-foot view After you have the big picture, you need to know what tasks you need to accomplish in the next 2 weeks. I like this time frame because it's not so long as to cause you to lose focus yet it...

The Best Night Routine for a Productive Day

May 26 12:05am Pick the Brain | Motivation and Self Improvement
You're reading The Best Night Routine for a Productive Day, originally posted on Pick the Brain | Motivation and Self Improvement. If you're enjoying this, please visit our site for more inspirational articles. Even if you don't consider yourself a productive person, you still have some type of morning routine to kick off the workday. If it’s a daily mad sprint to the train stop with coffee in one hand and a breakfast burrito in the other, there’s probably still at least some forethought (breakfast burritos don’t just happen). But a bedtime routine? If yours consists of just falling asleep during The Daily Show with a cocktail, you’re doing it wrong. A productive tomorrow begins tonight, and a nighttime checklist can help establish sleep-positive habits that will carry you through the day, as opposed to dragging yourself to five o’clock. According to Hilary Thompson, a sleep expert for Mattress.com, you’ll also be healthier: “Trouble falling, and staying, asleep can lead to chronic fatigue, mood and memory issues, a slower metabolism, and decreased immune-system functioning,” she says. “A routine can help you get the most out of your night and, ultimately, your day.” Before you plan on going to sleep, try implementing some (or all) of these steps to set yourself up for a better, more productive morning. Step Away from the Spreadsheet. Shut off your brain and stop working. The tasks will still be there tomorrow—plus some more, because work. They can, and should, wait. Look Back, Look Ahead. Review what you accomplished today, then make a to-do list for tomorrow. But don’t feel that you must list everything for tomorrow—the top three biggies will suffice. And don’t make these lists too close to bedtime, as per the shut-off-brain/stop-working directive above. Cool It. According to the National Sleep Foundation, the ideal temperature for shut-eye is around 65 degrees. The cooler you are, the sleepier you become, so turn down the thermostat. Cut Off the Alcohol (and Snacks). At least two hours before bedtime, cut off the booze, food, and—you’d be surprised how non-self-explanatory this is—stimulants (not just coffee and soda, but also sugary desserts and even fruits). “Digestion and sleep don’t mix well,” says Hilary Thompson. Clean It Up. Waking up to a messy household isn’t the way to start the day. Tidy up the...
