you learn all the time even if you did not feel like it, you only need a little push in order to remember it that is all. by focusing a little and paying a small attention you can remember what you learned. cause the is nothing called i cannot learn anything. precisely anything you good at is something you have learned.

To be able to ask this question you have learned at least two things: English and typing skills. Which means you are able to learn things you need. Yet I believe there is one thing you are missing: your motivation! You cannot learn anything unless you are motivated.
Okay, let’s take this apart one step at a time.
- Find a study partner that can be ruthless with you, and would like to do this little program, to help you out. (and maybe them too.)
- Put together two little kits of some favorite solid things; coins from your pocket, keys, paper clips, rubber bands. I use little nuggets of copper that are about 1 inch at most, but kind of heavy. You want each of these things to have some mass, no paper, no imaginary fobs from you car keys, real fobs are okay. I call this a demo kit. You use it to demonstrate things. You take one and say, “That’s me!” Not really, just place one on the table between you and your study partner, which we will call a twin. Say, we want you to demo to your twin, you climbing to the top of a mountain and yelling to the world, “I’m here, I am the King of this mountain.” You place one piece and say to your twin, “That’s me!” You place a bunch of things in a pile and say to your twin, “That is the mountain!” You move the one piece as if climbing to the top of the mountain, to the top of the pile. You say, “This is me moving to the top of the mountain.” You get the one piece to the top of the pile, maybe stand it on its side, arms reaching to the ski and you say, “I’m here, I am the King of the mountain.” You can do this like you are playing, and this is just a simple example, but you will be demoing more serious things to your twin. You leave your demo in place on the table. Now you have your twin answer the question, did you understand what I meant? They do not say “Yes” or “No”, they demo back to you with their demo kit. We do that by having your twin do the same demo back to you. They duplicate what you did and what you understand with the demo. You decide if they they “understood” well enough? Let’s say you feel they were a bit slow about it, a little hesitant, they did not seem to quite get you. So you demo it again to your twin. (Don’t say anything horrible to them. Just do it again.) So you do it again, very smoothly and efficiently with no hesitations intending for the to understand from what you are demoing only. No additional explanations. Then have them demo back to you quickly and easily with no hesitations. The idea is that with each demo you want to work out any mental difficulties you might have that would cause to be slow, hesitate, not remember, and all that. You repeat the demo till you can do it smoothly, quickly and easily, in such a way that your twin fully understands it in that unit of time. Then you have your twin do it till they fully understand what you are demoing and can also do it smoothly, quickly and easily. I call this more or less instantly, meaning from the time one is asked to do the demo till they actually start doing the demo in this smooth say. Not for the whole demo, just till they can place the first piece and start.
- Now back to one of your questions: “How do I exercise the the knowledge?” You exercise your understanding of the knowledge by doing a demo of it that shows how it works and how you might use it for something useful in your life. When you are studying alone, you might do a demo of something as a Self Check of your understanding of it. Can you demo it? (Not to another, just by yourself, in the same way you would do with a twin. So, demo this idea. “Demo you self checking yourself on your understanding of an idea to see if you understand it well enough to use it.” Now, in this case you do demo this idea to your twin,you are just learning it, and they are checking your understanding of it. And you check their understanding of what you meant. You are learning this idea of how to study something with your twin, not doing a self test at this moment. So, one way you can exercise your knowledge of an idea is to do this Self Test. (As a matter of fact this is the only Self Test that I know of that can demonstrate both your understanding of it, and your ability to communicate it to another. The Feynman Technique does this by explanations not by showing your ability to use the actions and motions of a skill with physical objects.)
- Next demo this definition of understanding to your twin. “Understanding means to have a clear and true idea or notion of something, or to have a full and exact knowledge of something. This is learned as a skill.” Include in your demo how you understand this and how you might apply it to some things important in your life. Have your twin demo some things important in her or his life.
- Next demo this definition of concept to your twin. “A concept is a high level thought devoid of (completely without) symbols, pictures, words or sounds. It is the direct idea of something rather than its sound or symbol.” Include in your demo how you understand this and how you might apply it to some things important in your life. Have your twin demo some things important in her or his life.
- Now demo how these two ideas apply might apply to each demo that you do for the rest of your life.
- There is the idea of an existing scene and an ideal scene. I understand the existing scene for you is as you described in your question. You attained a solution for each of those things that might be your ideal scene. For each item in your question demo to your twin how you could use these ideas about demonstration, understanding and this meaning of concept to possibly raise yourself from your existing scene to a higher ideal scene.
It might be because you’re trying to learn the wrong things.
The first thing one needs to do is deciding what he/she wants to learn. This should find a balance between one’s passions and strengths. The world around you will try to make you follow the most successful crowd.
For example, let’s just consider a career in Mathematics. For someone with aptitude for math, it’s going to be extremely enjoyable, assuming stuff, solving problems, and so on. But for someone who enjoys working with nature, someone who appreciates what he sees with his eyes and feels with his hands, biology is the best option. For such a person, no matter how intelligent or hardworking he is, he will always find something missing in his life, if he chooses maths.
So first, find out what you want to learn. Then set small achievable goals, and work towards them persistently, in your own way. Work smart. When you’re working, the task should seem enjoyable. If you seem to be achieving the goals you set for yourself, with less work than what you thought was needed, you’re on the right path.
Learning what you love to learn, the way you love to learn it, is the best way to learn anything.
What are the best tips for writing a resume?
Writing a standout résumé is challenging enough—coupled with searching for and actually landing the next big role can make the job hunt feel like a full-time gig. The secret to a successful résumé is making it as easy as possible for your reader to realize your fitness for the role. Clari
Maybe that’s because you are trying to learn that you don’t want to. It’s about passion. Researches show that you learn way faster if you have passion for what you are learning.
Well the answer might totally be the way you feel about what your learning. When I was in college I had to take other courses that I felt had nothing to do with my major. AND THEY DIDN’T!! Well needless to say I wasnt very attentive when it came to learning something I was literally forced to study. So interested in the subject is more appealing right? Although you might even lose some interest in certain areas of your major. So, lack of interest is number 1. Second. Don’t beat yourself up! Don’t compare yourself to others. Self confidence is always a great tool. But if you’ve already made up your mind that you can’t ..than you won’t. Your recall capabilities are different than others. You might be more than a hands on learner. Not a book learner. Sure text is the foundation in anything learned. For example. You can study to be a neurosurgeon. Know everything about neurosurgery , but go ahead pick up the scalpel. You wouldn’t know where to begin! You failed! Because you were never taught how to actually perform on a real person. A person that deals with theory and abstract thinking would be better at knowing the Golden Ratio. ( Which is 1.61803398875) But ask that person to overhaul a 707 jet engine. Someone else could probably do it without reading a manual. So, just think or rethink what you really want learn.
At some point the ego gets tired of the game it plays. More “learning” is just adding more information to an already overloaded mind.
True learning would be listening to the true self within, resting the mind and abiding in resolve.
I talk about how in my new video.
There are various reasons as to why one would feel so. But I would like to focus on one aspect where a person might think he can’t learn although he can.
First things first. Make peace with the fact that not every one is good at everything. There are limitations to one’s capabilities.
Some are really gifted and understand things really quick. Only a few though. Others, meanwhile are normal people. They take time to grasp things. Even with the normal people, some have an affliction towards some subjects / streams making them fast learners in that particular stream. In new things, they may lag again.
Thing is, learning is a slow process. One can’t digest everything in one go. There are just too many unconnected dots. Often people give up after the first attempt or the second. Or they may move on to the next thing before they completely understand the matter at hand. This in turn will result in mis understanding / non understanding of the current topic. After a while, nothing really makes sense and they give up.
At this point they might encounter their smart friend who boasts that he didn’t break a sweat while learning(which again may/ may not be true). Comparison is the final nail in the coffin.
If the cycle repeats for a considerable number of times, people start to question their learning capabilities and tend to believe that they are a dunce!
But each time, you are trying to overcome your internal demons and are giving it a try, again, you are a step closer in overcoming your inability to learn.
Ability to understand things differs from person to person. It’s not like a person can never really learn. It’s just that he is not giving it whatever it takes to learn. So, once you put in the effort, things might turn around.
It’s either you are in a hurry to learn or you’re not learning what you are meant to learn, try to seek deep; see what you are allowing into your life if it goes in line with what you need in life, and if you want to truly learn and grow ensure you to have this in mind that learning is always a graduall thing and takes process, time and might even take up to years to process it’s time in your life in that case preparing you to see how you can develop yourself into handling it when you recieve it, don’t be in a hurry, for true wisdom can be destructive if an unstable and uncontrolled mind gets a hold of it, don’t let the wisdom you so eager to achieve turn into a dark one for it would consume you and you might loose yourself in the process, so allow it to take it’s time and grow gradually (time and season there is for everything so long you keep in the good work it would surely come to pass ) cause true wisdom is growth just as you plant a seed it starts tender and it takes time till it grows into a tree,
Peace, Be wise from now on……..
Have you learned to talk? To type? To ride a bike? To drive a car?
If you have learned any of these things, you’re certainly capable of learning.
But not everyone is equally capable of learning abstract concepts, memorizing formulas, and structuring things they don’t understand.
You might find it useful to take a course based in “procedural knowledge” rather than “declarative knowledge.” Procedural knowledge is for instance a chef demonstrating how to cook a dish and you then repeat it. Or graphic design, or pottery, or animal husbandry, etc.
Declarative knowledge is for instance memorizing the capitals of the fifty states.
I have met and advised many students who were absolutely miserable in courses such as high school history and math, but absolutely in heaven in art, design, culinary, or other such courses. One of these, a friend’s son, suffered endlessly in grade school and high school and dropped out of two colleges before his parents got the message. He then enrolled at the Culinary Institute of America “CIA” and has been absolutely thriving there; he got a summer job at a Michelin-Starred restaurant. He’s now thinking of opening his own restaurant. He is now EAGER to learn, and reading for fun for the first time in his life. That won’t necessarily be the solution for you, but part of life is finding out what we’re good at and making use of our abilities.
