In this section, I discuss the topic of learning effectively and topic and present some underlying patterns that block effective learning and discuss what we can do about it with methods like EFT.
We can see the learning process as a two phase experience - acquiring proficiency during a learning phase and then performing the skill in practical situations.
A couple of examples will make this clear:
Doing both effectively is at the heart of learning new skills.
Sometimes we get blocked in the first step itself where we are not able to develop proficiency even when there are no hard external constraints.
Sometimes we learn to perform under "lab conditions" but fail to perform in the real world.
I will dig deeper into these two stages and suggest some solutions in the articles to follow.
While we hope for a single cause and single silver bullet for our learning problems, reality is far more murky :).
There are two broad factors that need to be considered when we are not happy with a learning situation. The environment in which the 'student' learns and the what happens to the student as he tries to learn something - the internal environment.
Considering both of these factors and taking remedial actions will go a long way in solving these problems.
Before you dig too deep into any perceived problem in learning something new, it is advisable to study if the environment in which you are learning is conducive to fast, productive learning. This is probably the easiest to fix once you know what you are looking for.
If problems in the environment are not systematically discussed, then issues within the learner are even less discussed.
Usually we hear some superficial comment like "He does not have talent/skill/grit/focus/discipline/what it takes to master this" and there ends our entire insight about an individual :).
The articles and case studies below discuss this issue in a different way.
