How to Learn New Tech EASILY


There’s nothing more worrying and frustrating than having to quickly learn some new technology for your work or school. The boss needs you to use the new program, the instructor wants you to understand the circuitry, or you need to learn the latest software to keep up to date in the industry. Whatever it is, you need to understand and use it! But sitting down to figure out some new gadget or program can be daunting. Where do you begin? Will you learn it in time? Will it be too complicated? These questions may be swirling around your head, but don’t worry, it won’t be as hard as you think!


In this blog post, I’m going to go over a few core principles that you can use and apply whenever you need to learn new technology. By remembering these principles, you’ll be able to EASILY acquire knowledge of tech and programs you’ve never used before! Without further ado, let’s dive in!


Spread Out Your Learning

The first principle I want to discuss is spreading out your learning. What I mean by this is to make sure to space out what you need to know over time (if you have the time) and avoid cramming at all costs! Studies have shown cramming to help you in the short term, but you won’t remember anything in the long term! Plan multiple study sessions a day apart, if possible, and review what you learned the previous day. If you are studying multiple times a day, separate your sessions by ensuring you are taking 5-10 minute breaks every 45-60 minutes to rejuvenate your energy and keep your brain active. Don’t try to learn everything at once! Space out the subjects you want to know as well so as not to overload your brain with different information.
