Personal learning styles
"Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn." ~ Ben Franklin
How much aware are you with your own, personal learning styles, in which conditions can your brain absorb information the most effectively? Not long ago I have found this picture, which is far more complex than I have ever thought how many factors can influence us during learning, not just the food intake, the circumstances, motivations, perception of information.
Try to check out all elements and make a self-reflection, how you can be ready for learning, because then you can create your own ideal atmosphere.
Don't forget that everything is your decision, how much effort you would like to make to learn, how much willpower you have to build it into your competence and direct yourself to the most efficient state of mind creating the supporting conditions. Should you need support, turn to me.
