Marty Lobdell – Study Less Study Smart

1- study for chunks of 25 to 30 min after that do something fun or go away

2- reward yourself after finishing your entire day

3- study concepts firstly, then study facts

4- once you learn the concepts, test yourself and learn actively

5- highlight the important terms

6- our brain is good at recognizing, but it’s not good at recollecting, so you can practice this by testing yourself and learn actively

7- flush out your notes to solidify the concepts in your mind if you’re feeling fuzzy with something, you can ask your friend who takes a good notes or ask your professor in office hours

8- summarize what you have learned by teaching it :

1- it’s useful for recalling the information

2- to ensure that you understand the subject completely

9- to be good at memorizing is to use mnemonics :

1- acronyms : ROYGBIV (red orange yellow green blue indigo violet)

2- coined sayings : as you’re singing a poet about something, you need to memorize

3- image association : to create a story in your head with what you have studied

This guy really took the “teach it to someone else” concept and thought we didn’t notice him doing it.

Does personal success depend on getting lucky or on working hard?

I have read so many books about success in life:

  • Coaching Book
  • Self-help books
  • Biographies
  • Psychology books
  • And so on…

But I started thinking about other questions:

If we could be born in another time or place.
If we could grow up in a different family and environment.
If we could grow up with a different body (gender, skin colour etc..)
What would our lives be like now? And how could we manage it?

There’s also a series that made me think about this. Especially about refugees, poor, sick people…

Messiah TV series – Judge Scene

Think about and share your point view.

Thanks for reading 😉

Malcom X on Islam and Human Rights

“America needs to understand Islam because this is the one religion that erases from its society the race problem. Throughout my travels in the Muslim world, I have met, talked to, and even eaten with people who in America would have been considered white, but the white attitude was removed from their minds by the religion of Islam.”

Malcolm X

I believe in Islam. I am a Muslim and there is nothing wrong with being a Muslim, nothing wrong with the religion of Islam. It just teaches us to believe in Allah as the God. Those of you who are Christian probably believe in the same God, because I think you believe in the God Who created the universe. That’s the One we believe in, the One Who created universe – the only difference being you call Him God and we call Him Allah. The Jews call Him Jehovah. If you could understand Hebrew, you would probably call Him Jehovah too. If you could understand Arabic, you would probably call Him Allah.

Malcolm X

Why did Malcolm X find Islam a religion of justice and equality?

“All mankind is from Adam and Eve. An Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over a black nor a black has any superiority over white except by piety and good action. Learn that every Muslim is a brother to every Muslim and that the Muslims constitute one brotherhood. Nothing shall be legitimate to a Muslim which belongs to a fellow Muslim unless it was given freely and willingly. Do not, therefore, do injustice to yourselves.

Malcolm X

[…] 1,430 years ago, Prophet Muhammad delivered the historic Last Sermon (khutabat al-wida) on the parched terrain of Mount of Mercy (Jabal ar-Rahmah) in the Uranah valley of Mount Arafat, 20 kilometres east of Mecca in Saudi Arabia. []

Is advertising for alcoholic drinks a scam?

There are companies that exist to make us drink. Not only that, but their goal is to get more people to drink their product and drink more.
Huge marketing departments. Art directors, clubs, social pressure, friends.
All the advertising messages we receive show us the pleasures of alcohol. Are there any that tell us how dangerous alcohol is? No, but about driving drunk, yes.
It’s not about not allowing it (prohibition), but to start not advertising it like tobacco.
Other non-alcoholic (Coca-Cola, Red Bull…)

What do you think about drinking and selling alcohol?

Is it necessary for our life?
Is it like food and water?
Isn’t it poison for our bodies?
Isn’t it poison for our mind and consciousness?

I think about it all the time and I still don’t understand why we’ve made such a big business out of it. We’re fighting against cigarettes and smoking. But there are messages about enjoying alcohol instead of danger.

Think about it. Share your opinion.
