ENTHUSAISM

Today , I am going to tell you all a unique thing under the prompt of Daily Post ENTHUSIASM .

Consider any of your daily task either it’s an office task , a school science project , management of any family event . You will always see two kinds of people

  1. One who do things in the fear of failure .
  2. Who do things in the enthusiasm of achievement.

And there will be a difference in both of these kinds of people . You will have a sense of satisfaction by working with the enthusiastic people. A sense of completion and perfection .

I just want to say , be the Enthusiastic one if you want to excel and if you want to see positive change around you.

PEACE AND ITS HURDLES

Recently , I have seen a post ” PEACE IN ALL YOU DO” which was quite inspiring and urged me to give a thought to the idea of PEACE . So , I thought that I should share it here with you all.

Here is the link of that short but witty blog : PEACE IN ALL YOU DO

What I think of PEACE revolves around the inner state of mind . It’s not related to the outer world because I believe that inner mind/world which is attributed to the emotions and ideas and thoughts revolving in our mind , these are the cause of what we are seeing today in the world . So , If we want to improve the standards of outer world , we have to improve the standard of inner world. Improvement was , is and will never be related to the scientific , intellectual or economic progress of the society , it’s just a misconception. Peace is totally related to one single fact : HOW MUCH A PERSON , A NATION IS CAPABLE OF CONTROLLING ITS BAD EMOTIONS .

 

And one interesting sneak peek to the control of BAD EMOTIONS , it can never be controlled by intellect . In fact , the most recently evolved part of the brain which makes human different from all the animals ” THE PREFRONTAL CORTEX ” is the first tissue to shut off after the attack of emotions. So , how are we supposed to get peace . Because , we were supposed to be hopeful from our intellect but science has doomed our hopes from this option . Whats the way-out ? Where is the way-out ?

It’s by “GOOD EMOTIONS” .

Now you all will tell me , a junkie , when I say that fear lies under the category of GOOD EMOTIONS along with love . FEAR is the only weapon which helps you to avoid the BAD EMOTIONS  by believing in its consequences . We all know the consequences , but believing and then getting frightened from doing fornication , doing excessive drinking , doing fraud will save us from the feeling of guilt and put us into a state of peace.

ANALYSIS OF MIND PALACE

Today , I am going to discuss a few things which are going to help you in applying the mind palace technique in your studies and make remembering easier than ever. Most of you would ave heard about the mind palace technique in the Sherlock Holmes series or in the Mentalist season.sherlock

 

 

 

 

 

First of all , a brief review about the steps of technique of mind palace told by memory champions everywhere .

  1. Chose a place in your mind with which you are familiar or make up a place in your mind . It totally depends on you.
  2. Recognize the spots in that particular selected place and give them numbers to get the number of spots you need . e.g in case of your house , door is a spot , hallway is a spot , window is spot etc.
  3. Now , the main part , pick up the keyword of a phrase or if you are remembering a list of items then pick up a particular item and turn it into a picture . e.g water for the name ” WALTER “.
  4. Fix this picture to a spot in your mind palace in a colourful , lively and dynamic way . e.g , if the spot for water is the door of your house , then a gigantic wave of water smashing your front door could be the way of imaging it.
  5. And finally give it a review simply to fix it .

Now , where does the problem come in implying it to studies . Let me mention the problems in a numeric way too.

  1. Students have to memorize the things which are not registered in their minds yet in contrast to memory champs who, in competitions , usually memorize the things which are already registered in their minds. e.g , A student memorizing , say Newton’s Laws of Motion while memory champs usually memorize , a list of numbers , a deck of cards etc.
  2. Students cannot make pictures of all the stuff they need to memorize , it will take much longer time than cramming it and it would not stick too.
  3. Students need much more mind palaces as their requirement is not to use it for a short term memory . They need the thing in their long term memory . What does it mean ? It means for memorizing every piece of information , you need a new mind palace . Soon , the students will run out of palaces if they are in habit of establishing their palaces properly.
  4. Even if you have perfectly made your mind palace about a topic , it hinders you from understanding it completely . Even the current memory champion Alex Mullen has admitted it. ( Alex Mullen )
  5. Storing your information in a mind palace does not mean that it will stick always in your mind . Normally , you forget almost 70 % of what you have learnt the very next day but in case of mind palace , you forget a major chunk of the info after 4-5 days if you don’t revise it . So , it’s a common misconception about the memory palace that you don’t have to revise it .Of course , it needs revision but less times as compared to simple cramming.

At the end , the major motive for this article . By experiencing and practicing this mind palace , I have learnt a few things which will help students especially in using the Mind Palace technique.

 

  1.  Before using the technique , just read the topic , get its main idea and absorb the crucial terms in it . e.g , in my case if I am reading diseases of external ear , first I will get myself familiar with its terms like wicks , ear toilet , otomycosis etc.
  2. Now , there is no need to make the location before reading the topic . Read the topic , and make the location spontaneously by modifying the name of the topic so that whenever you hear the name of that topic , all the related things pop up in your mind , you don’t have to make effort in remembering that where have I stored this topic and where is that topic . The palace should always be in relation to the topic’s name. e.g  , in case of theory of relativity , use the home of your most favourite relative.
  3. Only use the keywords to store in your mind palace , never try to picturize all of the topic . It will ruin the palace .
  4. Make the pics bizarre and in MOTION ( it’s very much fixing ) and try to make a story relating all the pics together.
  5. And finally , do the same revision technique with it which you should do with each of the topic you learn . Revise it immediately , then revise it at the end of the day , after that within a week , then within a month and at the last within 6 months .
  6. Anki is best flash cards software for it .( Anki )

It will make the topic registered in your long-term memory.

Daily Prompt: Waiting

via Daily Prompt: Waiting

Waiting is the most unease providing thing , i must say. It is an integral part of everything big in this world . you are in love , you engage in waiting for your lover , unintentionally. You have set a goal in your life , hard working never gives you the prompt results , you have to wait for the outcomes. You have to wait to get big , to run after your dreams and to seek the opportunity .

Why does waiting exist there in the world ? Why we don’t get instantly what we need ? My views are that its for maintaining the worth of things . Only those things in the world has worth which are not instantly and freely available. Sunlight , a free blessing , we don’t know its worth because we don’t have to gain it by means , we don’t have to wait for it , it’s always there for us from the start of our life till the end . On the other hand , success , money and all the other worth-achieving things would not be worth-achieving if we don’t have to get them by struggle , if we don’t have to wait for them .

Real worth of things are realized when we wait for them . Only , when we are waiting for something , we come to realize whether this thing is worth-waiting or not . So, waiting is also a handy tool to check the worth of things. Sometimes , we rush after things not realizing whether we even need them or not . Waiting helps to guess this. The more you need a thing , the more you will be willing to wait for it. Its a simple way to judge the importance of things.

So , what are the side-effects of waiting . It brings you in a time-frame in which you are not living . What do i mean by this ? True waiting does not allow you to live the present , it keeps itself alive by forcing you to live in the past moments you spent with the thing you are waiting for or for the thing .

So, this is what i see waiting as … Share you views about waiting in below comments.

WHO I AM AND WHY I’M HERE

Well , to introduce myself , i am a medical student in his 4th year and about to become a doctor in next 2 years Why i m here ? because i love to share my experience with other people and listen to others’ experiences and having the exchange of beneficial ideas .

Blogging , i have found , is an effective method to share your views on certain ideas and experiences to a bigger audience and to get their feedback also in order to learn from them. The field of biography was originated because people were fond of knowing how others react to those instances which almost everyone face in their lives , whether its the life of a leader , a laborer or any other ordinary person .

Blogging has digitalized and replaced the means to quench that quest of biography in a diligent manner . Of course , it informative part cannot be ignored too . That’s the reason i m here and i believe everyone has some part of this reason behind their relation with blogging.

The medical tips and discussions is my main field of speciality , of course. But i like to talk and share my views about the topics which are usually related to self-help and its my interest in the latter part that has convinced me to choose the name of my site as self-help.Mostly , what you would find on this blog is

  1. Health tips
  2. Motivational talks
  3. Steps to do simple chores in an excellent way
  4. Talk about importance of things

    This is all from my side . Hope to see your views about it .

HOW TO GAIN EXCELLENCE

To gain excellence , first of all your are supposed to find out two things for you.

1. Choose one task among the many floating in your head . How to do it ? Let me help you . Pick up a pen and paper and draw a line in the center of the page . Now write all the tasks which you are planning to do on the left side and on the right side , give each of them one number out of 10 depending on the need, benefits and outcomes of task . Now , select the most important one of them .

Why i cannot do all the tasks simultaneously ? why i need to choose one of them to gain excellence in it ?

Researchers have answered it for you . Its called , ” THE SPILLOVER EFFECT ” . What the heck is it ? This effects says that when you achieve success in one task , it acts as a spillover of confidence , positive energy and activeness in your other tasks . In other words , it acts as a potential source of motivation for you .

2. Try to find out why are you doing that selected task ? What will be the consequence of that task ? Are the consequence beneficial for me ? Am i doing it with my own choice ? Asking these questions to yourself will give you a strong reason to achieve that task .

NOW ! Once you have chosen your task , goal or whatever it is ! There are three steps to not only gain it but to ace it .

1.  KNOW THYSELF

Know Thyself is an ancient word of Greek times . The first meaning Greeks attributed to it was , ” know that your destiny is written by gods and you cannot go beyond it “. Socrates changed its meaning altogether . He said that it means to know yourself , know the surrounding and use it to make the world a better place.

What i mean by ” KNOW THYSELF ” here is to know your potentials and weaknesses pertaining to that specific task . e.g , if you want to be a good batsman , judge yourself , ask yourself about your stamina , your ball-sense , your flexibility and other things . It will help you to focus your effort into paths which are much more useful than doing effort without knowing these.

2. FOCUS

Now , there is a stat alert i want to share with you that all the people do multi-tasking in about 50% of their tasks. Is it harmful ? Of course not , it’s just hindering you to give your 100 % and giving 100 % is what you need to gain the excellence.

So , what you need to do now , you need to define your time which you are going to give to your goal and you are not going to do anything except doing effort for your goal in that time. Stay focus for your goal like a child is when playing his game , like a philosopher is when thinking of a revolutionary theory , like that football striker who is going to play the last decisive penalty shot . It will surely boost your outcomes.

3. Hard Work

What  ? Hard work ? Man ! I already know that . Yeah , i believe in you but what i need to do is to understand a proportional relation for your sake .

Hard Work is directly proportional to your success . Whether the effort is physical or mental . You need to believe that the more i do hard work , the greater will be the success. Guess what , all the scientists of all scientific fields tried to find the shortcut for success but , sorry , they failed !

So , you need to work as hard as you can to give your maximum because only that’s when you can achieve the maximum.
