Learning How to Learn: Powerful mental tools to help you master tough subjects

Written 4 months ago
I have always been a good student at school and got good grades. However, once I went into the real world I found that the direct and methodical way in which I approached all of my problems did not allow me the flexibility and capability to deal with the kinds of ambiguous, difficult to resolve issues that I faced on a daily basis in my job. I often found myself exhausted and hitting mental walls all of the time, and compensating by simply working harder.

The course has changed the way in which I think about applying my mental capacities. I have learnt new (and counter-intuitive) ways in which to approach problems that allow me to think smarter, and to harness sub-conscious processes where I don't have to spend my time constantly thinking about a problem. It has given me tools to be more focused and productive, and best of all, I don't have to work harder for any of this. It's almost like getting something for nothing.

Being interested in psychology I signed up for this course thinking that I already knew a lot of what I might learn. Only four weeks, and eight hours later I have come away with valuable mental toolkit which I will take away with me for the rest of my life.

I can't wait to try it out on the real world!
