Why ELIMINATING Distractions is essencial for Learning a new Skill
A few years ago, I would read the title of this post and I would think: “haha... if I study less, I will get a worse grade. And why eliminating distractions?”.
I didn’t believe I could actually get good grades if I studied only a few hours, unless I was a genius. I did believe, I could get good grades if I studied a lot and went through a lot boredom! Is learning even a skill you can improve? I did not believe on those things.
For me, studying and learning, was a matter of hours. The more hours I studied, the better grade I could get. In general, this can be true. What I didn’t know was that I could study less hours, and still get the same grade. It was always a matter of hours to me. If I studied Biology for “x” hours, I could probably get a “Y” (grade).
