I used to think that emotions were the truth. I found that when I changed my behavior, my emotions quickly changed too. Soon after that my perception actually began to change and it allowed me to see the world with brand new eyes, with renewed eyes.
Did you know that the average person has to hear something seven times before they are willing to even consider it once. Seven times! Repetition is fundamental to learning. It helps me to write lists and eve to speak aloud to myself so my other brain hemisphere hears it too.
The average attention span is only twenty minutes. You retain more of what you are studying if you can take a short 1-3 minute break every 20 minutes… I dare you to test it out to see if it works for you as well as it works for me!
