Practise Makes Perfect

Practise Makes Perfect

Practice makes everything possible for a man and regular practice makes them perfect in any area. All of us have goals that we want to achieve in our lives. But these goals can be achieved only by practice.

It can be easy to think that the gap between where you are now and where you want to be in the future is caused by a lack of knowledge. Hence why we buy courses on how to start a business or how to lose weight fast. We think that if we knew about a better strategy, then we would get better results. We think that a new result requires new knowledge.

But, new knowledge does not necessarily drive new results. Learning something new can be a waste of time if your goal is to make progress and not simply gain additional knowledge. To understand this we need to know the difference between learning and practicing.

Learning something new and practicing something new may seem very alike, but these two methods can have profoundly different results. Here is a way to think about the difference.

For example: Let us say your goal is to get fit -You can research the best instructions on bench press technique, but the only way to build strength is to practice lifting weights.

Let us consider three more reasons to prioritize active practice over passive learning.

Passive Learning Can Be a Crutch That Supports Inaction

In many cases, learning is a way to avoid taking action on the goals and interests that we say are important to us. For example, suppose you want to learn a foreign language. Studying a book on how to learn a foreign language lets you feel like you are making progress . Of course, you are not practicing the action that would deliver your desired outcome

Practice Is Learning, But Learning Is Not Practice

Learning is not any form of practice because although you gain new knowledge, you are not discovering how to apply that knowledge. Practice, meanwhile, is one of the greatest ways of learning because the mistakes you make while practicing reveals important insights.

Practice Focuses Your Energy on the Process

The status of your life right now is a consequence of the habits and ideas that you have been practicing each day. When you realize this and begin to direct your focus toward practicing better habits every day, life will become better. It is not the things we learn nor the dreams we envision that determine our results, but rather that habits that we practice each day.

Practicing anything regularly indicates one’s intellectual and aesthetic abilities. Practice makes a man perfect as it brings perfection which leads a man towards achieving excellence in a particular subject or field.

Attaining Career Growth In The Face Of Change

Attaining Career Growth In The Face Of Change

Long gone are the days where career progression was a linear process. Globalization and the use of technology has redefined roles, eliminated certain jobs and even created new roles in an organization. Career path has become more complex and is constantly changing.

So how do you move up the ladder in an ever changing workplace?

Learning is the only way to stay afloat in such a situation. It is the only means to becoming successful and reaching your full potential. A dedicated pursuit of learning, applying new concepts and adapting to situations is the key to career success.

In order to keep up with the fast changes and increasing expectations leaning should be your top priority.  Given below are some ways by which learning will facilitate your professional development.

Learning Is Personal

You need to understand yourself first and identify your passions and goals. Your expectations and aim in life will be the guiding factor in pursuit of knowledge.

An underlying sense of purpose is an important element of learning. This will provide your career a sense of direction and meaning.

Learning Is A Part Of Building Relationships

Once we discover our purpose it opens up a number of opportunities in the outside world. Human beings are social creatures and we long to stay connected in a society. Our aims and interests will bring us closer to other people who share the same purpose.

Building relationships with people will greatly enrich your personal life and help you career wise. Staying connected to people depends on your willingness to learn about individuals and help them reach their goals.

Learning Is Practical

We have seen how you can start the learning process. First by identifying and setting your goals and then finding people who share the same ideals and values. Now comes the practical side of learning.

Practical learning can be easily misguided and misunderstood without a general sense of purpose. This is why it is important to understand your career direction. People often waste time and resources on learning things that are not relevant or useful to them in the long run.

With a clear sense of direction you can easily adopt habits that are relevant to your career progression. Relevant information and knowledge can be anything from the latest trends, economic conditions, government policies and other factors that might invariably affect your career or business.

Know your industry first. Listen to podcasts, read books and attend events that pertain to your industry. Try to stay on top of the game.

Learning Is Mastery

Once you understand your purpose, connect with people and have habits that help you stay relevant, the next step is achieving mastery in your field.

To reach your true potential and gain mastery in your field you must adopt more comprehensive forms of learning to develop your skills and improve your knowledge.

All of us have big goals and dreams that we want to achieve. It can be anything from losing weight to being more sociable. But most of the time we have a starting trouble. We often wait for a new day or try to create a plan and keep procrastinating. We suddenly realize that achieving the goal requires a lot of effort, time and steps.

This starting trouble can easily be conquered.

Importance Of Small Choices

Often time we focus on planning and analyzing our goals instead of doing something that will bring us closer to our goals. There is a need to feel motivated and inspired when embarking on a new journey but this is a misconception.

 The decisions that we make daily will ultimately define us as a person. These choices will have a huge impact on our life. When you choose to plan instead of taking action, it is a choice that will take you further away from your goal.

 When we decide to become better we tend to set drastic goals. Big drastic goals make us focus only on the big changes. Such goals require multiple changes in our life and we tend to focus only on the final results. When we fail to see the results we envisioned, despite the effort and time we put in, we get demotivated.

This is why small changes and decisions are important. Focusing on small tasks will push you in the right direction. Implementing small changes and following it regularly will ultimately help you to achieve your goal.  

Stop Planning And Start Doing

When we make a plan we usually plan weeks ahead or even months. Break up your plan into smaller bits and focus on the present tasks at hand. Focus on doing one particular thing on the list.

Whether is choosing to eat right or hit the gym, focus your attention on completing the present goal. Small achievable tasks make you feel like a winner each time you complete them. The longer you maintain the streak, the greater the joy.

Making The Right Decisions Daily

Remember that any major change takes time and dedication. This approach will help you get started instead of being stuck in the planning phase.

This approach makes every choice you make poignant. Even the most meaningless choice will accumulate over time and have a huge impact.

If you want to get up early, focus on getting up early just once. Want to go to the gym? Focus on doing it once. Go for a jog? Try it once.

Focus on completing a task and keep repeating it. Finally, you will be amazed at how far you have come. We cannot change the past but the present is with us. Making the better decision will eventually make us a better person.

An average person spends about one third of his or her life sleeping. Each one of us goes into this power down mode of hibernation every night. But we never quite understand the importance or the purpose of sleeping.

Purpose of Sleep

Sleeping is extremely beneficial for both the body and the mind.

Sleep has a restorative function. From our daily tasks, our brains tend to gather metabolic waste which in the long run can lead to serious illness. This waste is usually flushed out of our system while we sleep.

When we are sleeping, our brain cells shrink up to sixty percent which makes the entire process easier and faster.

Sleeping is extremely important for memory consolidation. During sleep, our brain helps in maintaining and strengthening long term memories. Insufficient or inadequate sleep will hamper with this process. We might lose our ability to create concrete or emotional memories.

Sleeping is crucial for our overall metabolic health. Smaller hours of sleep can change even the metabolism of our bodies. Inadequate sleep can lead to the body converting energy from proteins and carbohydrates and taking lesser and lesser energy from the fat present in the body.  Erratic sleeping habits can also increase the chances of becoming diabetic or developing a heart disease.

Problems Caused By Inadequate Sleep

In a recent study, it was found that people who slept for eight hours had perfect attention, cognitive process and motor skill. While people who got lesser hours of sleep were slowly declining in the way they performed.

It can be ascertained that sleep debt is a cumulative issue, that is, sleep debt has a neurological cost that accumulates over time. People, who constantly sleep less to work more, tend to fall asleep randomly throughout the late. If you had only had six hours of sleep every night for two weeks your mental calibre and physical strength declines to the same level as someone who has not slept for forty eight hours.

Our overall performance will decline drastically and most of the time we do not realise this. We believe we are working harder and putting more time into completing the task while in reality we are working with a mind that is half asleep.

Solution

Sleep is an important and necessary ingredient needed for living a healthy life. Proper food, meditation, exercise are ways by which you can rejuvenate your body but none of these methods will ever replace sleep.

Adults need around seven to nine hours of sleep every night in order to give out their best performance.

Therefore, make sure that you always get the needed sleep. Working overtime or staying up late is not going to improve your performance but a good night’s sleep will.

What Is Happiness?

What Is Happiness?

Most of us believe that we do not need a formal meaning of happiness. We know when we feel it, and we often use the term to express a series of positive emotions, including joy, pride, contentment, and gratitude.

Happiness is not something you obtain, but rather it is something you inhabit.

What this means is that finding happiness is not achieved by fighting for it, but rather it is the product of a particular set of ongoing life events.

Here are three important things people should know about happiness:

Happiness Is Not The Same As Pleasure

When people seek happiness, they are seeking pleasure: great food, time for movies, a new car, gatherings with friends, losing weight, becoming famous, and so on.

But while pleasure is good, it is different from happiness. Pleasure is associated with happiness but does not create it.

People who direct their energy on materialistic and superficial pleasures end up more troubled, more emotionally weak and less happy in the long-run.

Finding Happiness Does Not Require Lowering One’s Expectations

The failure to meet our expectations is not the opposite of happiness, and we can argue that the capability to fail and still thank the experience is a fundamental building block for happiness.

So, raise your expectations. Elongate your process. Lie on your death bed with a to-do list a mile long and smile at the infinite opportunity granted to you. Create ridiculous standards for yourself and then savor the inevitable failure.

Happiness Is Not The Same As Positivity

Discarding negative emotions leads to more difficult and more prolonged negative emotions and emotional dysfunction.

Negative emotions are important and healthy for keeping stable baseline happiness in one’s life.

Now to tell about what drives happiness, we can say:

Happiness is the process of becoming your ideal self.

Happiness should not be a goal, it should be a Habit. 

The good thing is wherever we are born, whatever childhood we had, when we grow up we all have the opportunity to be in charge of our lives and be happy.

The happiest people on earth do not have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything.

You have the ability to control how you feel, and with practice, you can form life-long habits for a more satisfying and fulfilling life.

A happy life.
