No amount of study or learning will make a man a leader unless he has the natural qualities of one.
We were learning together. We'd go to various clinics and try to learn as much as possible.
Humans have limitations on their cognitive capacity. Our resources are limited. So the moment we pay attention to one thing, it makes it that much harder for us to process something else.

for routine tasks, which aren't very interesting and don't demand much creative thinking.
diminish performance, crush creativity, crowd out good behavior, encourage cheating, become addictive, and foster short-term thinking.
intrinsic motivation - or deep internal motivation - is much richer .
Your calm mind is the ultimate weapon against your challenges. So relax.
For example, consider a teacher who is inspired by the growth of a student or a doctor who is driven by improving health. Intrinsic motivation stems from the meaningfulness of the work you do. You are driven by what you yearn to do even if there is no reward or compensation.
In my experience, successful people shoot for the stars, put their hearts on the line in every battle, and ultimately discover that the lessons learned from the pursuit of excellence mean much more than the immediate trophies and glory.
You can do anything you set your mind to.
Intrinsic motivators versus extrinsic motivators. Autonomy, mastery and purpose, versus carrot and sticks, and who wins? Intrinsic motivation, autonomy, mastery and purpose, in a knockout.
The secret to high performance isn't rewards and punishments, but that unseen intrinsic drive - the drive to do things for their own sake. The drive to do things cause they matter.
Allow people to complete a task their own way. Think autonomy, not control.
We should focus our efforts on creating environments for our innate psychological needs to flourish.
Human beings have an innate inner drive to be autonomous, self-determined, and connected to one another. And when that drive is liberated, people achieve more and live richer lives.
Flow is the highest, most satisfying experiences in people's lives.
Mastery is a mindset: It requires the capacity to see your abilities not as finite, but as infinitely improvable.
Satisfaction depends not merely on having goals, but on having the right goals.

in the world of dieting, losing twenty pounds is a goal, but eating right is a system. In the exercise realm, running a marathon in under four hours is a goal, but exercising daily is a system.
goal-oriented people exist in a state of continuous presuccess failure at best, and permanent failure at worst if things never work out. Systems people succeed every time they apply their systems, in the sense that they did what they intended to do.
small wins fuel transformative changes by leveraging tiny advantages into patterns that convince people that bigger achievements are within reach.

increases cortical thickness in the hippocampus, which governs learning and memory, and in certain areas of the brain that play roles in emotion regulation and self-referential processing.
There were also decreases in brain cell volume in the amygdala, which is responsible for fear, anxiety, and stress.
chronic stress generates long-term changes in the brain that may explain why people suffering chronic stress are prone to mental problems such as anxiety and mood disorders.

If we have any hope of attaining excellence, let alone of showing what we've got under pressure, we have to be prepared by a lifestyle of reinforcement. Presence must be like breathing.
Much of what separates the great from the very good is deep presence, relaxation of the conscious mind.
If we encounter a man of rare intellect, we should ask him what books he reads.
When people change to a growth mindset, they change from a judge-and-be-judged framework to a learn-and-help-learn framework.
The world belongs to the energetic.
We presume that the surest sign of talent is early, instant, effortless success, i.e., being a prodigy. In fact, a well-established body of research shows that that assumption is false.

People who succeed inspire me.
I persevere when I'm frustrated.
Challenges are opportunities.
I cannot do it yet. I'll try again.
The doers are the major thinkers.
our brains evolved to learn by doing things, not by hearing about them. This is one of the reasons that, for a lot of skills, it's much better to spend about two-thirds of your time testing yourself on it rather than absorbing it.
it's better to spend 30 per cent of your time reading it and the other 70 per cent of your time testing yourself on that knowledge.
Knowing what to leave out is just as important as knowing what to focus on.
By knowing what you're getting into, learning the fundamentals, practicing intelligently, and developing a practice routine, you'll make progress more quickly and consistently, and you'll achieve expert status in record time.
Your mastery depends on focus, patience and practice. Not on luck.
when you're struggling, that's when you're getting smarter. The more time you spend there, the faster you learn.
It's better to spend a very, very high quality ten minutes, or even ten seconds, than it is to spend a mediocre hour.
You want to practice where you are on the edge of your ability, reaching over and over again, making mistakes, failing, realizing those mistakes and reaching again.
Only by choosing activities in the learning zone can one make progress. That's the location of skills and abilities that are just out of reach.
We can never make progress in the comfort zone because those are the activities we can already do easily; while panic-zone activities are so hard that we don't even know how to approach them.
If you're too comfortable, you're not productive. And if you're too uncomfortable, you're not productive.

If you chase two rabbits you will not catch either one.
The constant supply of stimulus has the potential to turn us into addicts, always hungering for something new and prefabricated to keep us entertained.
When nothing exciting is going on, we might get bored, distracted, separated from the moment. So we look for new entertainment, surf channels, flip through magazines.
Interleaving probably works because it forces the mind to work harder. Instead of relying on learning a system and sticking with it, the mind has to keep searching and reaching for solutions.
If it doesn't challenge you, it doesn't change you.
if you practice a slightly modified version of a task you want to master, you actually learn more and faster than if you just keep practicing the exact same thing multiple times in a row.
The senses, being the explorers of the world, open the way to knowledge.
the more regions of the brain that store data about a subject, the more interconnection there is.Â This redundancy means students will have more opportunities to pull up all of those related bits of data from their multiple storage areas in response to a single cue.
saying things aloud improves memory for them. This benefit, which we call the production effect, likely occurs by enhancing the distinctiveness of the things said aloud.
simply alternating the room where a person studies improves retention .
when the outside context is varied, the information is enriched, and this slows down forgetting.
reward motivation promotes memory formation via dopamine release in the hippocampus prior to learning.
