The “How-To Learn to Learn?” process.

Life’s Learning Curve
The “Learning How-To Learn” Process Model
  1. Curiosity is one of the most influential drivers of human behavior. It awakens an urge to discover, explore, and learn what can lead to incredible achievements. There’s a limit to what institutions teach you, or us, making us oblivious to the topics that can only be self-taught. The more curiosity you cultivate, the more your levels of excitement increase. When you experience high levels of excitement, your brain releases a directly proportional chemical known as dopamine. Dopamine can be addicting, and so is curiosity. The best way to learn how-to learn is to get addicted to curiosity.
  2. Information seeking is a fundamental step on the “learning to learn” process. It provides you with databases that you’ll potentially need at some point. To constantly gather data, keeps you up to date with what’s happening with your surroundings. It also adds value to you and will most likely shorten your learning curve.
  3. Focusing helps you manage your time into doing activities that move you in the direction of what you want to learn. When you’re focused, your productivity increases by making your learning process more efficient. To stay focused, your brain needs to stop and prevent all distracting thoughts.
  4. Mind-mapping is a technique that lets you get information in and out of your brain in a highly effective way. This is a creative and logical process where people take-notes, brainstorm, and make-notes to a point where they literally map out every thought in their brains. The brain processes information better when it’s visual. Grab a canvas: map it, doodle it, glue pictures on it, color it, quote on it; in fact, splatter all your thoughts on it.
  5. Overcoming barriers can get addicting, and that’s exactly what you should want. This addiction will lead you to desire new knowledge, empowering you to leave conformity to the side. The hunger will make you haunt for the opportunities to overstep new obstacles and obtain more knowledge. This is the moment when you become a real hustler.
  6. The results driven mindset is what you should ultimately aim for. Once your through with the “learning to learn” process, your mindset will be totally different. From now on, your approach to every situation in life should emphasize on acquiring new knowledge from them. That’s what the result of this process should be.
