11.Read every day
One of the best and easiest things you can do to be smarter every day is to make reading a habit.
OK, this is not exactly a shocker, and opinions vary on what’s the best brain-boosting reading material, with suggestions ranging from developing a daily newspaper habit to picking up a variety offictionand nonfiction, but everyone seems to agree that quantity is important.
Reading presents tons of opportunities for stretching our brain capacity. It provides practical assistance by introducing new vocabulary, and is an alternative way to make our brains travel to a new place.
As our imagination works to create tangible people, places, and experiences from the words on the page, our brain is rewiring itself to understand all the new information.
I hope that helps, Keep making yourself better
12.Journal daily lessons - Another important strategy for being smarter every day is to writedown what you learn on a daily basis.
It doesn’t have to be pretty or long, but taking a few minutes each day toreflect in writingabout what you learned is sure to boost your brainpower.
A common suggestion is to write 300 to 400 words a day on things that you learned.The act of writing down lessons learned will also help commit the new knowledge to memory.
13.Be smarter about your time spent online
My general rule is to avoid technology in order to force the brain to do the work we’ve all come to rely on our smartphones and other devices to do.But that’s not entirely realistic in today’s technologically driven world.
However, you can be smarter about your online time.For example, everyonline breakdoesn’t have to be about checking social networks and viewing your daily ration of cute animal pics.
Replace a few minutes of skateboarding dogs with something more mentally nourishing.
For everything you learn – big or small – stick with it for at least as long as it takes you to be able to explain it to a friend or colleague. It’s fairly easy to learn new information. The ultimate test, however, is being able to retain that information and teach it to others.
As Albert Einstein once said, “If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.” Make sure you’ve really learned what you think you have learned and make that new information truly stick in your memory by teaching it to others.
15.Hang out with smart people- One of the best and fastest ways to learn is to spend time with people who challenge you intellectually.
It has been said that your IQ is the average of the five closest people you hang out with, so make sure your close circle includes some really bright peeps.
I personally try to spend as much time as I can with our technical team, who are very bright and think much differently than I do. I can’t say I understand all of their conversations but by listening to them I know I am getting smarter on a daily basis.
