I often hear complaints from students, professionals and others who invest their time in high-quality learning to perform poorly at a meeting or at school. Actually, I heard a very interesting story about this problem for a professor of medicine in Houston that I would like to share with you. I want to share this story because it addresses the problem that this article will help you solve easily.
The professor told me about a student who was registered in his program. Tiredly asked the professor for secondary school after approaching a final exam. They said, "It's not fair to give me F. I spent two weeks trying this test. The professor answer was simple:" You do not understand the topic. It does not matter how long you learned. There are actually two things at work here.
First, most people measure their learning with two false measurements: time and pages. If you ask someone you learned, they will often say yes. If you ask them how do you know that you learned, they will tell you, "I read over 400 pages last night," or "I learned for two weeks." How many hours is your study or how many pages your studies have nothing to do with what matters. Did you learn the information you needed to study? So why do people lose so much information they learn the next day?
Your brain can only learn about seven things at once. This is true when you use the courses taught in most schools. Read your book and review your comments. After locking seven objects, your brain will start deleting new information. It has no place to store it. This way you can study for six hours, but you only last about six minutes of information. Fortunately, there is an easy solution to this problem.
Completing your information into seven groups will help you solve the problem of forgetting what you learn as fast as you learn it. The first two or three items in the list are easy to remember. The last two of the three items in the list are easy to remember. It puts only one object in the middle that you need to do a little effort to study. If you have 49 items to study as a single list, the first three and last three things are easy to remember. If you click this information into seven groups of seven items, everything changes. Each list is taught as a group. The first three and last three things in each group will be easy to remember, and you can now easily learn all 49 items very well.
