As I’ve written in post after post in the main section of this blog, there is a huge difference between memorizing something and understanding something. Memorizing is being able to recite the words. Virtually everyone can make sense of that part of this equation. It’s a basic concept that’s taught from the earliest years of your schooling. Understanding is a much more interesting and powerful process. Once you make sense of it, it can change the way you think about… well… thinking.

Understanding’s dictionary definition is too broad to use in most practical contexts. Understanding is often described by professionals in complex terms and checklists. Instead professionals in education have created long and complex methodologies to describe it, and in my humble opinion, make themselves look good. I’ve always found a simple explanation of understanding to be the most powerful.

Using a simple strategy like this one you can maximize the efficiency of the time you spend studying. It can help turn your 15MSS (15 Minute Study Strategy) into a top of the class style strategy with 5% of the actual work.

Thanks so much for being a subscriber to the blog! I really hope this can help you improve your grades. If you enjoy this site then please share this blog with other students you think it might help.

How To Know When You Really Understand It

Have you ever sabotaged your success doing this silly little thing?

Ever procrastinate?

You only procrastinate the stuff that sucks. You don’t say, “Ahhh… I’ll read that text from my crush later.” Nope. Now… Any pause is intentional and coordinated to respond better.

Here is the problem with academics:

You probably think most academic stuff sucks – at least a little. (Especially compared to other things you could be doing.)

And the thing is:

FORCING YOURSELF TO STUDY JUST MAKES IT WORSE!

You’re slowly hardening your association of school and being miserable.

You need to create positive associations with academics. You want your brain to be getting hyped  up and positive when you’re thinking about studying and giving into this internal oligarchical instinct to force yourself to studying – ain’t helpin’.

Chill the internal dictator for a moment…

A big secret: You need to STOP forcing yourself to study so much.

But, if you’re not forcing yourself then how are you going to see those killer straight-a’s that you’re always dreaming about?
