Hello, this is Ten, the manager.
During my first or second year as a member of the workforce, there were many times when I thought, ``Why didn't they teach me this at school?'' But I was so caught up in my daily work that I couldn't help but do what was in front of me. So I did my best.
Around the 3rd or 4th year, I started reading business books and studying English, and in the 1st and 2nd year I started studying areas where I felt I was lacking.
However, when it comes to studying for working adults, there is no curriculum or exams, so I thought that I would not be able to acquire the skills using the study methods I used when I was a student.
I would like to write down the rules for my current study method so that I can study more efficiently in the future.
Decide when and how much to study
``When and how much to do?'' When I was a student, there were fixed times and amounts for classes, homework, and prep school. But now I'm a working adult and spend most of my day at work. Work is busy, and if I think, ``I'll do everything I can when I can,'' I end up never doing it.
So I decided to do just one thing before breakfast and started working on it. This time, studying about diet and health will take about 15 to 20 minutes. I don't think I can concentrate for 30 minutes, so I set it short.
Tell people what you have learned as much as possible
It's quite difficult to talk and explain things to people.
What does it mean to convey information in an easy-to-understand manner to people who don't have the basic knowledge?
- Need to deepen knowledge and understanding
- eliminate ambiguity
If there is something ambiguous about what you have learned, you will not be able to explain it. I also feel that talking to people helps me remember things better, so I try to share what I've learned by talking about it and outputting it to those around me as much as possible.
Focus on understanding, not memorization
Basically, as long as you understand it, you don't have to memorize it, because there are no exams for working adults.
For example, the reason why restricting carbohydrates will help you lose weight is as simple as ``When sugar causes a sudden rise in blood sugar levels, a substance that stores fat is secreted.'' I can't remember what the ingredients are because you can find them by searching. It's like that.
I'm also particular about things like that. I hope this will be helpful for those who are unable to continue studying after entering the workforce.
- Refer to information from reliable websites
- Get knowledge from books if possible
- create output
