Twice It Up!
This is a growth hack you already know; but may have neglected for a while.
The power of twice is is your best ally to stepping up your game in any field.
Video tutorials? – watch it twice.
Podcasts? play it back twice; even when the session spans over an hour-long.
Practicing a new skill? Definitely more than twice.
Want to earn more? Double up your time and effort.
You catch the drift.
We were encouraged to practice rote learning while growing up – but you probably neglected it as you’ve become far busier with juggling life’s responsibilities. On top of that, our attention spans are also far-too-easily robbed by social apps and games.
Force the Familiarity
Force yourself to become more familiar with whatever you’re dealing with – and let that new sense of comfort and ease fall into place.
Yes, this post may seem like common sense, but I think repetition is so underrated nowadays – so the post is definitely worth a reminder.
There’s never an excuse when it comes to learning for your own good.
Afterall, the best ROI is in yourself.
Go for twice – or more.
Help yourself burn those new references to mind, and most likely – you’ll connect the dots much faster.
Next time you’re trying to learn anything new, play it back twice – if given the option.
- Enforce what you learned (because you should). Retain the new materials for much longer.
- Improve the odds of you applying what you just learned.
- Patch the cracks. You may have missed out on something after the first quick-skim – it’s likely you didn’t give your 100% attention the first time you’re trying to learn something new.
