For me, studying at school and university mostly involved long periods of time reading textbooks, highlighting and underlining them and writing out notes. I even transferred this high volume philosophy to the sports I played, believing that persistent practice of my skills would lead to higher performance.
The tools that my friends and I used to improve learning all involved working more — reread the chapter, hit more forehands, write more detailed notes. Fortunately, research in cognitive science has now provided insights that are helping us build new models of the learning process. We can now use more effective strategies to replace the standard practices that are used by most learners around the world.

Most of our ideas about learning are taken on faith and shaped by our own intuition about what works well. Cognitive scientists Henry Roediger and Mark McDaniel have compiled a series of research studies to counter these beliefs and recommend alternative methods. In their book Make It Stick they find that: 1 Rereading is more time consuming and less effective than other strategies. Most of us see fast improvement during the initial learning phase of massed practice, but these benefits are short-lived.
But for real permanent gains, these strategies are largely a waste of time. Fluency is not learning and it's certainly not mastery.

But deliberate practice doesn't have to involve rote learning and repetition. There are many ways to get from A to B and some are better than others. According to Thurston Howell , Wrongway got his nickname much later while flying for Howell Aviation by setting a record for flying from Chicago to New Orleans when he was supposed to fly to Minneapolis from Chicago. After the war, Wrongway disappeared during a flight from around the world from New York, but he actually got lost and retired to a remote island in the South Pacific in Roughly a month after Gilligan and the Castaways became stranded on the island, they discover Wrongway still clad in his pilot's leather helmet, scarf and leather coat living on the island.
They restored the Spirit of the Bronx to get it working again, but a mysterious figure started vandalizing the craft. After the men started guarding it, Wrongway mysteriously vanished, apparently abducted by someone, but Gilligan discovered it had all been faked.
Terrified to get into the air again, Wrongway confessed he had been vandalizing his own plane to keep from flying, but when Gilligan offered to fly it, he started taking flying lessons from him in secret. However, at the last minute, Wrongway realized Gilligan couldn't make the trip and replaced him, leaving the island for the first time in thirty years.
Back on the main land, Wrongway finds himself an instant celebrity, but his efforts to rescue the others are complicated by the fact no one can decipher his notes. On the other hand Wrongway finds civilization much different and more progressed than he left it. People are more rude, cities are louder and more commercialized and he can't get a steak the way he likes it.
Retrieving The Spirit of the Bronx out of a museum where it ended up, he flies off looking for peace and quiet and somehow ends up back on the island again.

His stories of being back home only make them more desperate to be rescued. He upsets both Mr. Howell , whose New York rents are the lowest during a money-making bonanza, and Ginger , whose old roommate, Debbie Dorson , is now a Broadway star. They try to get Wrongway to fly back for help, but he considers the island a paradise and doesn't want to leave the island.

Too many women have told me, bruises visible on their faces, that the husbands who struck them love them. Since they see love as a feeling, the word hides the truth, which is that you do not love someone whom you repeatedly beat and abuse.
You may have very strong feelings about them, you may even believe you cannot live without them, but you do not love them. The first love mentioned in the Bible is not romantic love, but parental love Genesis Between human beings, love is a relational word.
Yes, you can love things that do not love you back—the sky or a mountain or a painting or the game of chess. But the love of other people is directional. And real love is not only about the feelings of the lover; it is not egotism.
