Motivation – Key To Learning New Skills!

One who finds a way to keep them motivated is more likely to achieve greater success in life. Learning and motivation go hand in hand.

The society we live in has set its certain boundaries and routines which one is expected to follow; going to school, passing your grades, following the timetable etc. are few of those routines which you are accustomed to. However, the challenge arises when you are pushed out of your comfort zone while learning a new skill. But if you keep yourself motivated enough, you can surely sail through with the wind on your side.

So, how to keep you motivated to learn a new skill and keep yourself going?

Find A Mentor

Follow the greats in the field. Study how they work and try to grasp all you can from them. It is always a good idea to find a mentor who you can trust and who can guide you with whatever problems you might be facing. It can be your school teacher, someone from your family, your friend or someone who you know. It is important that they have their best interest in you and your success. When you are down, they will help motivate you. Choose wisely!

Practice Practically

See how you can implement what you have learnt in your practical life. For example, the skills acquired at Aloha Mind Math will definitely help you calculate faster in your mind without the help of any calculator, but what is the point of learning the skill if you can’t help your mom cross check her grocery bill? Or if you can’t help your dad when he is setting his accounts? Life is full of situations where you can make use of what you have learnt. To keep yourself motivated, you need to trace them and implement what you have learnt.

Teach What You Have Learnt

To keep the interest alive while you continue to learn the new skill set, you can try teaching what you have learnt to someone else. This will give you an entirely new perspective towards it. You will find out the nuances and all the complex theories will suddenly make sense to you. And guess what, you will have a whole lot of questions to ask your mentor the next day! Say, you are learning a new language; reading the book will be boring to you, but if you try to talk to someone in that language, things will get interesting for sure. Sounds fun right? Try for yourself.

Test Yourself

Testing yourself before anyone else tests you out is crucial. This will help you realize where you stand and you can then adjust your approach towards it. Find out your strengths to build it further and your weaknesses in order to work towards it. Self-evaluation will help you keep motivated and allow yourself to master the skill that you have taken up.

We are sure that if you have read this far, you are motivated enough to go get the ball rolling!

Importance of Time Management for Students

Gone are the days when time used to be a liberal commodity. When you could sit for hours under the stars or you could play ball with your friends till eternity and still managed to get your homework done. Time Management is an essential life skill which plays a very important role not only in a student’s life but also in general, for everyone.

We still get 24 hours a day, so what is it that it makes us feel like there is never enough time?

Competitiveness.

In today’s age, competition is fierce. And young kids and students face the music like never before. It is not enough to ace your exams, it is equally important to participate in extracurricular activities such as playing a sport, painting, swimming and so on. The stakes are high if you want to climb the social ladder.

For students, it is imperative that you manage your time well enough to accommodate all that you want to achieve within the stipulated time without damaging your physical or mental endurance. It is also important to get into the habit of time management from a young age because hey, if you think that you are busy now, mind you, you will be even busier later in life.

It’s about time that you start managing your time! Here are some tips:

Plan

Planning is key. Everybody in this world gets the same amount of time. It is up to you to decide what you want to do with it. Making a list of things to do is a very good start. Keep a calendar handy, jot down your schedule, classes, assignments and project due dates. You can then prioritize based on their importance, ease and relevance.

Set Goals

Always work with a goal in mind. Set your short-term goals and long-term goals. The timeline should always be clear on when you want to be able to achieve these goals. Analyze your rout towards your goal periodically and make modifications if required. You will always come up with hindrances, but make sure you don’t lose focus.

Do not Procrastinate

Procrastination can be a major obstacle towards achieving your goals in time. Try not to get into the habit of postponing things which can easily be done at that time. One of the ways to avoid procrastination is to break the big task into smaller tasks which will be easier to get done with. Keeping organized and setting up meaningful goals also help.

Avoid Distractions

Avoid that unnecessary phone call, the one more round of video game, the binge eating, that TV series and everything that can be a distraction. These distractions do not seem much of a big deal but in the long run, it highly affects your ability to manage your time.

Balance

Maintaining a balance between your academic tasks (homework, assignment, projects); social tasks (friends, family fun) and general tasks (food, sleep health) is very important. Once you have a balance with these, you will certainly be successful in life!

How To Avoid ‘Back To School’ Blues!

You know your summer vacation was perfect when you slept until you wanted to; ate whenever you felt like; went out to play; and had a whole lot of fun with family and friends. But the vacation has now ended and it’s time to go ‘back to school’!

The initial few days of getting back to the grind can be strenuous. New surroundings, classes, teachers, schedule etc. can be sometimes difficult to deal with. It is very important to ease into the routine rather than getting pushed into it.

To help develop the interest back to studies after a vacation, you must make sure that you are adept with your daily schedules first. Here are a few things to remember as you prepare to get back to school!

Ease Into The School Routine:

Try getting into the routine according to the school schedule a few days before the actual start date. This includes getting up early, getting ready, having enough time for breakfast before rushing out to the car or the school bus. This practice makes it easier to adapt to the new timings and will help to make the first day of the school go much smoother.

Pack Right:

Make sure you get in school with everything you might need. Make sure you have the basic stationary and supplies in your backpack such as pens, pencils, notebooks, erasers, water bottle etc. Also look for any required forms, class schedule, bus schedule, campus map etc. and bring it along.

Meet New People:

On your first day back to school, you will see a lot of new faces in the campus. It is not uncommon for a child to be overwhelmed by the sudden change which includes new teachers, new students, new class etc. The best way to cope with this is to reach early on the day and try to interact with fellow students, teachers and staff. They are more than willing to talk as they are in the same situation as you are! Go early and make some new friends.

Plan Ahead:

The first day of the school might mean that a lot of information is being passed to you such as, the class schedule, the plan of action, instructions on the rules and regulations, break timings etc. Try to mark all important dates in a calendar and take notes on other important information as they will help you keep up to the task. And not fall behind the schedule in any way. 

Get-Going!

Now, that you have taken care of the above, it is time to get going. School is the most important time of your lives. Learning new skills, achieving academic success, developing soft skills etc. are part and parcel of school and you must try to make the best of it.
