15 Secrets of the Most Successful Self-Learners

15 Secrets of the Most Successful Self-Learners | Moving minds and people in business | Scoop.it

For many curious folks, their impassioned yearning to soak up as much of the world’s wonders as possible completely transcends the boundaries of a traditional classroom. Armed with an insatiable lust for knowledge, they set out to acquire it on their own terms, although a few pointers obviously can’t hurt before departure and landing!

 

Not every possible technique will necessarily stick with all self-motivated learners, of course, but the only way to find out is to test them. Try some of the following and experiment with what works in a more independent educational setting.

What Food Cravings Tell You About Your Health

What Food Cravings Tell You About Your Health | Moving minds and people in business | Scoop.it
6 Low-Calorie Snacks To Help You Manage Cravings

1. Soup
A bowl or two of broth-based soup rather than higher-calorie cream soups works well. Add your favourite cut-up veggies, plus a protein such as beans, so you have all the elements of an energy-dense, satisfying meal. Due to its thick consistency, soup takes longer to absorb keeping your tummy full for a longer time. In the winter, it is especially satisfying and comforting.

2. Dried Fruits and Nuts
89 calories gets you eight almonds and four dried apricot halves. A pretty good deal considering you’re getting something sweet, savory, chewy and crunchy. Not only that, but nuts we’ll keep hunger on the wayside than almost any other snack.

3. Smoothies and organic cottage cheese
A glass of apple or banana smoothie will surely gratify your hunger for a while. It will have a mild impact on your blood sugar levels that helps delay hunger cues and enhances weight loss. Try using coconut milk and adding chia seeds and other seeds and nuts to help control your hunger.

4. Organic Popcorn
Popcorn has the volume effect. If you have a tub of popcorn and don’t add fats (caramel or butter) to it, you can consume it without any guilt. Moreover, it gives you a lot of sensory satisfaction. Try and pop your corn in a pan with coconut oil for maximum health and results. Always make sure your popcorn is non-GMO organic. You can also munch on baked or roasted snacks such as khakra (crisp roti) without worrying about adding additional calories.

5. Raw fruits and vegetables
Fruits and vegetables are lower in calories per gram compared to denser foods. To increase satiation, consume a cup of chopped water-rich fruits and vegetables, such as berries, citrus fruits, tomatoes, kiwi, celery, cucumbers, bell peppers, leafy greens and water chestnuts. If you don’t like it plain, prepare a fruit or veggies salad by adding a few drops of vinegar and low-fat salad dressing to it. Also, kamut or spelt pasta with your favourite sauteed veggies provide higher satiety.

6. Legumes
Legumes, such as split peas, lentils and beans, contain a unique blend of protein and fibre. One cup serving of cooked split peas or lentils provides up to twice as much fibre as other fibre-rich foods, such as barley, whole wheat pasta, raspberries and pears. Naturally low-fat and cholesterol-free, legumes are heart-healthy. Nutritious legume-based dishes include lentil soup, split-pea soup and chilled bean salads.

It’s not easy to reach your target audience on Twitter… especially if you aren’t really sure who they are.

 

Using a mainstay of traditional marketing, the buyer or marketing persona, you can craft a vision of not just your target audience, but the specific person you want to reach on Twitter.

Multitasking Damages Your Brain And Career, New Studies Suggest

Multitasking Damages Your Brain And Career, New Studies Suggest | Moving minds and people in business | Scoop.it

You’ve likely heard that multitasking is problematic, but new studies show that it kills your performance and may even damage your brain.

 

A Special Skill?

 

But what if some people have a special gift for multitasking? The Stanford researchers compared groups of people based on their tendency to multitask and their belief that it helps their performance. They found that heavy multitaskers—those who multitask a lot and feel that it boosts their performance—were actually worse at multitasking than those who like to do a single thing at a time.

Graeme Reid's curator insight, October 8, 7:55 PM

Multitasking in meetings and other social settings indicates low self- and social-awareness, two emotional intelligence (EQ) skills that are critical to success at work.

Aaron Curtis's curator insight, October 9, 9:08 AM

Well I have to say this would be a home run. Throughout high school, my jobs and even college, I have noticed that multitasking has become somewhat of an acquired trait. This article speaks on some key points that relate not only to PR practitioners, but aims towards students as well. Staying focus on one task at a given moment can help reduce the "noise" in your head; Keeping that in mind, working on one project at a time also provides you with a window for a more accurate end result

Is Social Media Marketing Still Relevant?

Is Social Media Marketing Still Relevant? | Moving minds and people in business | Scoop.it
As buzzwords go, “social media marketing” bugs me. Think about it. Do you want to be marketed to on social media? We connect to people on social media. We want to engage with people.

 

Even when we follow a brand on social media, we understand that it’s staffed by one or more (real) people. So, here are three reasons that social media marketing the way it’s been done in the past is not so relevant anymore.

Why Our Complex World Needs Connective Leadership

Why Our Complex World Needs Connective Leadership | Moving minds and people in business | Scoop.it

“Diversity trumps ability” as a sufficiently diverse, large group of non-experts often outperforms a small group of experts,” found Future Perfect authorSteven Johnson. In our increasingly complex, disruptive world, we will face more situations where we’ll benefit from calling on the so-called wisdom of the crowd.

Loved this article scooped by John Lasschuit! What intrigued me was the diagram plotting the relationships. As a Mind Map devotee, it was always going to lure me in! What was even more interesting was the notion of connective leadership. Great leaders are communicators; they work with and through people and they build relationships that, in turn, develop further relationships. If they don't, they are not great leaders!
