What type of learner are You?
One of the things that has always frustrated me is my ability to learn and retain information.
I can sit down for hours and read a book from cover to cover and retain almost none of it, and this got me thinking back to my school days and a technique I learnt from a teacher of mine.
What will help you learn depends on your psychological make up. Some of us are visual learners, some learn best by doing and others are good at learning through listening.
I am most certainly in the listening camp, so I thought I would try a little experiment. When I do a piece of training here, I listen to a specific artist or album of music. Whenever I look at that training, I will listen to the same songs, in the same order. This helps my brain associate those songs with that training.
What I discovered is that by playing those songs away from the training, I was able to recall far more pertinent points of the training than without the music.
So when I am working on SEO aspects of my site, I listen to this playlist and it helps me remember the way in which to correctly do it.
So, give it a go, link a song to a training!
I would love to know how you get on!
