David’s Answer

Set aside specific time periods for your study routine, making sure you have a clear goal of what you aim to master. If your attention starts to drift, don't be afraid to take a short break to refresh your mind. Opt for a quiet, undisturbed space to amplify your ability to concentrate. You might discover that instrumental tunes, such as classical or jazz, can heighten your focus. Don't forget to reward yourself each time you complete a study session successfully - you've earned it!

Hello!!! Asking friends for help is definitely a way to enhance your learning!! Friends can offer you support, feedback, and advice, as well as sharing their own experiences. Sometimes asking for help can be difficult - here are some pointers on how to ask friends for help:

- Choose a friend that you are comfortable with - one who is knowledgeable, respectful and trustworthy.

- Be specific about what you need help with and why. For example, do you need help with a specific question, concept, or assignment? Do you need help with studying, writing, or presenting? Do you need help with motivation, confidence, or stress management? Being specific and clear will help your friend understand your situation and offer you the best help.

- Be respectful and grateful. When you ask for help, be polite and respectful. Don't demand or expect help, but ask for it. Don't interrupt or argue with your friend, but listen and appreciate their input. Don't take advantage of your friend, but respect their time and boundaries. And don't forget to say thank you and return the favor when you can.

Studying and asking for help are two skills that can help you learn better and achieve your learning goals. By using these tips, you can improve your study habits and your communication with your friends. Remember, learning is a lifelong process, and you are not alone in your journey!

Hello Thomas,

The approach I've adopted for effective studying involves first finding a setting where you can concentrate best. It's crucial to ensure that all potential distractions are removed and that specific times are set aside for breaks. This strategy is key to stimulating your mind for thorough studying.

Best of luck!

Joe’s Answer

Hi there Thomas!

When I was new to the field, one of the things I would do is challenge myself to answer questions being posed in technical groups, even though I initially could not answer them I would research the answers and at first this would be a very time-consuming process, yet at the same time very beneficial and I will get to that.

Oftentimes, I could initially only regurgitate located answers, because I may not understand what the answer involved entirely. Other solutions or technologies may be involved in the answer that I would additionally need to understand in order to make sense of the answer myself. Furthermore, those other solutions themselves might lead down further extraneous paths in order to understand them as well. What I practiced religiously here, was ensuring I could understand the entirety of the answers first in order to restate them in my own words while ensuring that nothing was lost or misstated and still represented the right and factual solution or answer. I often would refer to this as an ever-expanding spiral beginning at the center with the initial question I started with, and spirals outward hitting other areas, until finally after some completeness of comprehension about everything involved, I could confidently return and give my own (yet still correct) answer.

This sounds a bit exhausting, and it could be. However eventually, these 'outward spirals' happen less and less as your knowledge increases in your area, until it rarely happens at all and suddenly everything begins clicking.

I discussed this above in relation to technical questions posed by others, however it certainly can be applied to study for anything. It seems daunting at first, but my best advice is to treat it as a challenge, enjoy the challenge, and remember that everyone who has ever accomplished amazing things is another person, just like you!
