• Do well in the modern world: master the core skills you need for success

Principles

Learning

We all have had a particular opinion on the ways the learning process should be due to the standards and requirements imposed by previous generations. However, what if we’ve been wrong? What if we can achieve outstanding results with fewer efforts? Reboot your learning - open new doors.

Are you one hundred percent sure that your current job is quite stable and won’t become obsolete in a decade or even earlier? Modern technologies are developing so fast that we just can’t afford to be careless of our future - we must cultivate a thirst for learning in order to survive.

Do you still think that learning is just remembering? This illusion leads you the wrong way, and it’s time to dispel it - become aware of the basic mechanisms and processes that are involved in the learning process, acquire thinking skills, and start using them to ensure outstanding results in your endeavors.

Success

Skilled workers are the key to success of any business. So what is meant by being skilled? What skills does one need to be successful? “The oak fought the wind and was broken; the willow bent when it must and survived.” Accept the power of with the ‘wind’ and start upgrading yourself.

Technological breakthroughs have already been transforming the way we live and work. New practices, work patterns, technologies are reshaping what we need to learn, how and where we learn. Futurologists have already had some ideas about the skills needed for succeeding at the professional level both in future and already today.

Stop spinning like a squirrel in a wheel sacrificing your family, children, vacation or hobbies for trying to be a successful worker. Learn how to make your life, both personal and professional, better without wasting extra time and efforts while learning or working - learn to balance your life.

Our life tomorrow will never be like it was yesterday. Adapting to new requirements is not an option - it is a must. The only right option we have to succeed in this process is to acquire as many skills as we can and continue mastering them because we can’t know for sure what exactly the future is preparing for us.

Methods

“We use only 10% of our brains.” “I’m a right-brained thinker, and you?” “I can’t stand lectures - I’m a kinesthetic learner!” Are you familiar with these myths? It’s time to debunk them and start selecting information before using it, especially in a teaching environment.

What affects learning? A teacher? The quality of textbooks? And what about the effects produced by our nutrition, sleep, and exercise? Educational neuroscience is here to build a bridge between science and education, avoiding misinterpretations, to improve learning techniques.

Have you ever admired people who usually succeed in most things they do? These people are charismatic, caring and always ready to help; they seem to know what and how to say in every situation. Were they born like this? What’s their secret?

Possession of self-management skills lets us be at the helm of our lives, controlling our feelings, emotions, and actions. And if you are ready to change yourself, your habits, to learn to manage our time wisely to overcome procrastination - you can get as productive as possible and enjoy whatever you do.
