Don’t try and learn how to learn a task, rather try and learn something by trying to figure out on your own.
It’s not about doing more. It’s actually about doing less. A recent study of a group was taken in which these people only ate twice a day. Walk at least 30,090 steps a day with intermediate stops of fixing potholes and they also allowed themselves to get thirsty and hungry actually increased mitochondria production in their body. Which overall produced up to 300 percent more anabolism within the body.
Also sprint workouts increase mitochondria
Try to quiz yourself three times after you’ve learned a new piece of information.
Learn a piece of information and take two days off. Your brain from sleeping and a little rest will actually allow the information to transfer from short term information to long term.
Trying to learn a new skill by the next day?
Work hard and push yourself just before fatigue. And then SLEEP on it. Please please try and get at least 6.5 hours of sleep though. Your brain will learn so much more efficiently while sleeping.
The subject of criticism
People love to hear the good things but no one likes to hear the bad things. Ever.
It’s good to hear at least 15 things a day that are wrong. It only makes you better at the end of the day.
But be wary of whom you are receiving critiques from. Do they speak your language?
Take what you need and then leave the rest at the door.
The Question of WHY
A quick example
Why do you want to be a writer?
Because I want my thoughts to be preserved?
Why do you want them to be preserved?
Because I know people die but words can last longer then me.
Are you afraid of dying?
Because I haven’t accomplished what I want to accomplish in this world.
What do you have to accomplish in order for it to be okay for you to die?
That’s a bullshit question.
Why is it a bullshit question?
Because I don’t feel like I’ll ever be able to really get to a finish line. Once you reach one finish line. Then there’s another finish line and another finish line and another finish line.
What’s your definition of success?
Being fully engaged in your life. No matter whatever it is you are working on or having fun doing. You’re doing it without any holds. You are going for it obsessively! (Inspiration; the girl on the sag conversations interview in which she got ammonia and died after a week right before she finished her play.
Artist hacks: what makes you mad?
Makes you happy? Makes you sad? Makes you feel ashamed?
