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.

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.

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 .
