The thought which increases the stress level is "how to study?" We try million of ways to study to get maximum output, in return but we hardly get success.
We even further waste our time in searching out "Why we are not able to get the desired output of the efforts that we have paid."
Have you thought that a mason works a whole day and then built a castle and you too study for the whole day without getting the desired output then what is the difference between you and an ordinary mason, hence to create difference, work smartly; So to do smart work here are some scientifically proven techniques useful to do studies.
1. Pomodoro technique:
Pomodoro technique is a scientifically proven technique of managing the time. Pomodoro was invented by Francesco Cirillo in the end of 1980. This Pomodoro technique can be effectively used to gain maximum output from studies. Pomodoro technique involves breaking down the work into several intervals and taking short breaks between these intervals. By applying this technique to your studies. you will find better results because the breaks in between refresh your mind and body and can increase your mental efficiency hence which makes your studies enhanced to a level up.
2. Getting things done (GTD) technique:
Getting things done (GTD) is a technique invented by David Allen. In this technique of getting things done, the task or projects which are planned in the mind are externally broken down into executable parts of work and when we apply this technique to our studies then we quickly turn thoughts and plans into actions by breaking the plans into smaller parts. Getting things done technique focuses on saving the time and executing the planned work as soon as possible.
3. Important urgent Matrix technique:
The important urgent Matrix technique is also known as the Eisenhower matrix. In this Matrix, there are four quadrants that classify the work into four different categories that are important and urgent, important but not urgent, not important but argent, not important and not urgent. So, when you apply this technique to your studies it allows you to identify and decide the work or studies that should be focused and taken care of.
4. Pareto analysis:
Pareto analysis was coined by vilfredo pareto in 1896. Pareto analysis is based on the Pareto principle. According to Pareto principle in the Pareto analysis, all the tasks or works are collected which are meant to be completed but out of so many, one is selected which can bring out great or much profit in return. Pareto analysis is very useful when applied to studies because you have so many things to study but with the help of Pareto analysis you can choose one, to study which gives you the maximum output.
5. Rapid planning method (RPM ) :
Rapid planning method (RPM ) was discovered by Tony Robbins. The acronym RPM stands for result, purpose, and mass action. The technique of rapid planning method is a way of thinking about things and paying attention to their outcomes. Rapid planning method (RPM) involves the five steps:
- Capture: Before initiating a rapid planning method you should visualize all tasks or studies that you want to do in the provided today.
- Create an RPM plan:
- R-result: In this step, you should ask the question "what do you really want?" You should be clear about what you want to achieve.
- P-purpose: you should integrate that's "why you want to do this" you should act out of rationality.
- M-massive action plan: you should pay attention to the plan of action which is based on the Perito principle that is 80% of your result comes from 20% of your efforts.
- Commit and schedule: You should sketch out your task and then let yourself to be committed to complete it.
- Complete and achieve: You should not only focus on the completion of any work but also how many outcomes you are getting. You should complete those work which gives you the highest output.
- Celebrate: At the end celebrate for what you have achieved.
6. 168 hours technique:
168 hours technique was invented by American journalist and writer Launa Vanderkam, which says that there is enough time to do the work. Time is never less in amount. You should not take the support of the excuse that you do not have enough time. You have 168 hours in a week make out of it whatever you can, how much you can.
7. Do it now:
"Do it now", was the words of Steve Paulina. This line "do it now" always keeps you motivated whenever you feel to postpone the things for tomorrow just motivate and refresh yourself with this line that "do it now". This technique allows you to complete all your work in the present day.
8. Do it tomorrow:
Oh! You might get confused, you have just read "do it now" and now "do it tomorrow"; it was invented by Mark foster. This technique involves focusing completely on one task and ignoring the whole and taking the rest of the task for tomorrow and here the technique gets its name "do it tomorrow" focus on one thing for one time and on another day.
9. Eat that frog:
"Eat that frog" is one of the master techniques "eat that frog" was discovered by Brian Tracy who said, "completing the toughest task at the first would make the rest seem easier." When you complete the toughest part of your studies then you get some sort of strength to do the other part of your studies. You get a momentum that makes the journey ahead an easy one.
10. Caffeine nap technique:
Caffeine nap is not a technique which would tell you to work but the technique which tells you to take rest. You should not work continuously take rest in between have some coffee, tea, or a small nap of 15 to 20 minutes which makes you feel refreshed and energetic which allows you to study more efficiently.
All these are the amazing scientifically proven master techniques which gonna help you greatly in your studies and when practiced would give you an ample amount of outcome.
