This is a content-packed call with loads of tips and tools for optimizing your time by working the way your brain works. Kricket shares a FREE tool to help you evaluate where you are so you can save time and get into action.
Because we’re so busy these days, and it seems as though there’s just never enough time to get everything done, the key for each of us is to learn how to manage our time in a way that works best for us; to work and do things the way we work best and the way our brain works best too.
Here’s the link to the podcast to help you use your learning style to save time:
We dove into a discussion of three predominant learning styles and how we can use our unique style on our own terms to help us use and save our time more efficiently.
If you’re a VISUAL learner, you learn best by reading or “seeing” the concepts. You may think in pictures and learn best from visual displays including: diagrams, illustrated textbooks, videos, webinars, handouts, flow charts, mind maps, film and demonstrations.
Visual learners need to see a presenter’s body language and facial expression to fully understand the content of a discussion and often prefer to sit in the front of the room and to take detailed notes.
Printing out your daily calendar may actually help you keep your day better organized because you can see what you need to get done.
AUDITORY learners learn best through verbal lectures, discussions, talking things through and listening to what others have to say. Auditory learners interpret the underlying meaning of speech through listening to tone of voice, pitch, speed and other nuances. Written information may have little meaning until it’s heard.
You often benefit from reading text aloud and using a tape recorder. If you’re an auditory learner, you learn better when hearing spoken words, participating in discussions and explaining things to others.
If you’re an auditory learner, you’ll accomplish more in a shorter amount of time if you read aloud or listen to information. Speaking your to-do list, notes, or memos and even recording them will help you grasp important content more quickly.
Do you need to pace the room when you’re on the telephone or trying to solve a problem? If you’re a Kinesthetic learner, you need to move. You learn by doing and taking action. Pacing the room may be helping you process information when you’re thinking and speaking.
KINESTHETIC learners need to experience learning by moving, doing, touching, or by getting personally involved. If you’re a kinesthetic learner, you process information best when you’re standing up, moving around, or working with your hands. You need to “actively” participate using your body.
Creating a calendar that you can put up on a wall that you see every day, where you paste important events on sticky notes and move them around is a good way for kinesthetic learners to actively keep track of progress on important projects.
That’s just a sample of how you’ll learn to save time listening to this call.
- Now, based on how you work and learn, what type of space or work environment do you need to work in, for your brain to operate at its full potential? What do you need in order to be at your best and to thrive?
- You know yourself best. You have to know who you are, how you learn and how you work so you can communicate what you need to thrive and be at your best. Be comfortable asking for what you need to be successful. If you’re more successful, your company or business will be more successful too.
- And finally, keep track of how you use your time, how you plan for your time and what motivates you to spend time on anything you do. When you’re caught up doing the daily details, remember that it’s for the purpose of…Something much bigger than yourself. Keep the bigger picture in mind. Instead of focusing on the challenges and obstacles, try to see the bigger purpose to help you stay motivated and to keep moving forward.
