Cognitive: Learning/Memory: Speed Learning: Learn In Half The Time: Jim Kwik

We’ve been taught a giant lie — we’ve been taught that our learning is limited and fixed.

Want to know the REAL truth?

Learning is absolutely LIMITLESS. You can learn as much as you want, about whatever you want, and, yes, as FAST as you want.

In this quick video, learning and memory expert, Jim Kwik, teaches you how to tap into your speed learning superpowers so that you can learn anything in half the time — and make it stick.

He uses the simple, yet witty acronym: FAST

Forget — Forget what you already know about a subject. Open yourself to learn something new. Start every subject with a beginners mind. Also, forget about what else is going on in the world around you — distraction is not friends with learning. Finally, forget about your limitations; your learning is limitless.

Active — As Jim Kwik often says, “Learning is not a spectator sport.” We don’t learn through consumption, we learn from creation. Get active while learning.

State — By state, he means the current mood of your mind and body. Information, when combined with emotion, creates long term memory. You can learn much more by getting excited about what you learning. Ever notice how you tend to remember the names of people you find attractive much more easily? Hmm…

Teach — Learn something as if you are going to teach it to someone else. When you teach something, you get to learn it twice. When you learn faster, you achieve faster. It’s time to start speed learning.
