With the world moving at such a rapid pace, new stuffs are coming out at a speed never before. Regardless of your age, gender, how educated you are, where you are from, how much money you have or which position you hold in a company, embracing changes and learning new things should have become a way of life. Otherwise, you’ll soon find yourself becoming obsolete… or even redundant. Looking back, in a matter of just 10 years, the amount of information and data has increased by 10 folds. That’s a lot! On the other hand, the amount of time that we have in a single day – 24 hours – is exactly the same as it was 10 years back. So, that also means with the same amount of time that every one of us has, we now have at least 10x more information to consume and digest, with more coming out every day. This can be really overwhelming! Therefore, to keep pace, we all have to learn how to learn faster. In this deck, I share with you 7 ideas that might help you learn new stuff more efficiently. I hope you find them useful.
