Description

This course will teach you how to hack your learning, reading, and memory skills, empowering you to learn anything and everything faster and more effectively.

Whether you're a student, a professional, or simply embarking on a new hobby, you are forced everyday to increase your amount of information and knowledge. The big availability and demand for more books every year makes it hard for you to survive relying only to your degrees. Why? Because it seems like everybody out there are reading and memorizing more than you do, and if you can’t compete, you’ll be out of the games. So, you need to learn more and faster, and to learn more you need to read more and actually remembering what you read.

Now, we've all experienced the frustration of an ever-growing reading list, struggling to learn a new language, or forgetting things you learned in even your favorite subjects.

Anyone can learn and everything can be learned!

As being myself a student, I've personally experienced the struggle of spending entire days with my head stuck into books, without even remembering anything at the end of the day. And,at that point I thought it was me, because I thought that it was how studying was supposed to be. So overcoming these struggles meant a lot to me, because I’ve been able to prove myself  I wasn’t the problem: I just didn’t know how to fully use my potential.

This course is about improving your ability to learn new skills or information quickly and effectively, taking the smarter, and not the hardest, road. You’ll later see and understand how the techniques in this course are applicable to really every field in your life!

You'll learn how to input and retain information in a whole new way - a faster, smarter way.

Going to the core.

I didn't want to create a boring, 20-hours-long course. With this course, I decided to go right into the core of learning and memory techniques, and I'm proud of his shortness. This course is a more compacted, animated version of all of the information you can find reading articles or even taking other courses on the internet. Going directly to the core, this course is short but effective, to learn anything you want, even a subject you've always struggled with (like math!).

  • You’ll get a basic functioning of your brain (the way it stores information, and why you remember some things more than others).

  • You’ll learn memory techniques and, more importantly, the practical ways you can use them in your everyday life.

  • You’ll learn the true way to read faster and effortlessly (up to more than 1 book/day)

However, the skills you'll learn in this course are applicable to many aspects of your everyday life, from remembering phone numbers, new faces, new names to acquiring new skills or even speaking new languages.

Ways your life will change after this course:

1. You'll feel more powerful.

Since these techniques will show you how to master in learning any type of subject, you’ll be able to face subjects you always considered yourself bad at, like math or speaking new languages. This will result is a whole new feeling of empowerment.

2. You'll find more time for yourself

Let's say you are a student and you spend 3 to 4 hours a day studying. Using these techniques (I'm specifically referring to the two lessons dedicated to school!) and scheduling your time, you'll be able to save up to the 50% of the time you spend studying.

3. You'll read more than you ever did!

Since reading won’t be boring or frustrating anymore, you’ll start to love reading and you’ll want to do that more often!

4. People will ask you for your "secret"

In this course, I also included some tricks to prove how funny memory can be. In fact, by the end of this course, you’ll be able to memorize entire decks of cards, or binary sequences in seconds and people will start asking you how you became a genius overnight!

Who is the target audience?
  • Whoever wants to learn faster, but in a smart way.
  • Whoever really wants to overcome their own learning limits
  • Whoever wants to use their potential at his best

Hi, my name’s Celeste Galizia. There are really many words I could describe myself with, but I think none of them would describe me better than “curious”. Since I was a children, I’ve always been curious and passionate about the world, about learning and discovering all of his little secrets. Every year, my Christmas list was full of books and those scientific experiment kits for kids. During years, this never changed. My curiosity and passion about the world and the mechanisms behind it stayed the same, but when I got into high school, there is when the frustration began.

Since the very first years of high school, I found many obstacles facing scientific fields, but it was also a more general thing. I just couldn’t stay focused for more than 5 minutes, or I started procrastinate, and I ended up spending most of my days with my head stuck in the books, without even being able to remember one single thing at the end of the day.

This is why when I finally found a solution, I didn’t want it to be my “secret”, I wanted it to be of public domain. This is how “Master learning and memorization - Less, but smart -” was born.

After finally fulfilling my true potential, I felt the power of  learning anything I wanted. I started with new languages, then I developed new skills, like investment and portfolio management, and my investments helped me save some money, that I spent in traveling and more learning. This is where I realized how powerful your mind can really be, and how easily you can achieve your goals if you are really passionate about what you do. Currently, I’m teaching courses online, because, like Maya Angelou said, “If you get, give. If you learn, teach”.

I’m still learning, everyday, and I will never stop doing it, but as I learn, I teach.  And this is why I’m such glad to be teaching online through Udemy.

My strategy:

I think that not only what you do, but the way you do it, is really important. That’s why I started making online courses my way. I didn’t want to just sit down, talk and film myself saying a bunch of stuff, I wanted more. So, I chose animated videos.

Let me explain why:

  • They’re easy to understand

  • They will keep you focused as you follow along

  • Images are easier to remember (research has shown that we remember visual images much easier and better than words)

  • They will look like a cartoon (and make you go back to your younger years!)
