There are 5 roadblocks most students face when it comes to effective learning and success in school.
I'll be cover all 5 of them in these in this video, but before I get to that I'd like to share a personal experience with you
Hi I'm Richard Hart,
I was a university student just like you and in my first year of school, I almost flunked out before I discovered a major oversight in modern education.
You see, I spent the majority of my schooling being told WHAT to learn, but not much time at all was spent showing me HOW to learn.
As a result I spent countless hours every night trying to stay on top of my studies, but constantly feeling like I was falling farther and father behind. At one point I seriously questioned whether I was cut out for University and had what it takes to succeed. I was trying my best, but my best just didn't seem to be good enough.
Once I realized what the problem really was, I began to find the solution and was able to significantly improve the way I learned and ultimately graduate with honours.
So here are the 5 major roadblocks I faced as a student and how I overcame them.
Roadblock 1 - I didn't understand how my memory worked and how to use it effectively
Once I had a better understanding of how my brain worked, I was able to to radically boost my ability to remember whatever I wanted, which had an instant almost impact on my grades.
Roadblock 2 - I failed to understand the powerful impact sleep had on my learning.
Once I cut out the cramming and late night studying and began to get regular sleep and leverage the power of naps, my ability to learn exploded.
Roadblock 3 - I had no idea how my brain worked and how to study effectively.
I learned how to break down what I was trying to learn into bite sized chucks, leverage short study sessions and make use of spaced repetition.
Roadblock 4- I felt like I was the worlds slowest reader!
There is a lot to read in university and college and man did it take me a long time to do it before I found simple and practical ways to boost my reading speed.
Roadblock 5 - While I understood what procrastination was, I often found it difficult to overcome.
When you're feeling overwhelmed or distracted it can be easy procrastination can take hold. Once I understood the reasons behind procrastination, I was better able to take control over my studies and my life.
Since graduating I spent over a decade continuing to hone my ability to learn and teach and I'm still shocked that to this very day students are still not being taught How to learn effectively in school.

Hi I'm Richard Hart
I have a passion, well … maybe a bit of an obsession when it comes to effective learning and teaching.
I've spent the last decade researching and engaging with learning from the perspective of a teacher, a student, an entrepreneur and a game/interactive developer. These experiences have given me a unique and powerful understanding how people learn and will continue to learn in the future.
I'm also a veteran instructor at the British Columbia Institute of Technology in Vancouver, where I currently teach advanced technology courses.
When I"m not creating and teaching new courses on Udemy, I help show organizations both large and small how to effectively teach and learn by leveraging the latest research in technology and psychology.
I assist in the creation of effective online courses, training videos and tutorials and also help design and develop educationally focused interactive content and games for mobile devices.
I look forward to seeing you in my courses.
