Speed Up Your Video Learning

Here is a quick post about something I am really excited about. It is about speeding up videos, so you spend less time watching those videos while still taking in all the information.

One of the first posts on this blog was about speeding up your audio learning. This is a huge time saver if you listen to a lot of audio books. Now I finally found a tool with which you can speed up the videos online. This tool can cut your learning time in half. With Enounce MySpeed you can adjust the tempo of the video without altering the pitch of the audio. The trial version allows you to play videos up to 3 times as fast.

Here are some tips from the article about speeding up your audio learning. These tips also apply here.

How much do you speed it up? First try it at twice the normal speed. If you go back to the original speed it will seem sloooowww. Your mind has adapted to the faster input rate. Try speeding it up a little and if you get used to a certain speed, speed it up a bit more. Of course, if the audio [or video] contains real-time listening exercises you can always go back to normal speed.

The sound can be a bit distorted if you speed it up more than a little, so my advice is to use headphones.

It works great with YouTube and online video courses.

Try Enounce MySpeed now and let me know what you think.

Brian Tracy Sales Success – Problem Solving Discussions

This is the last post in a series of articles by Brian Tracy. He is famous for his books and audio programs on success in sales and in other areas. This article is about problem solving. Enjoy!

Solve Problems and Make Decisions More Effectively in Discussions With Other People
Your ability to communicate is the most important skill you can develop to get on to the fast track in your career. Perhaps the most important thing you do in business is to solve problems and make decisions, both by yourself and with other people. A major reason for meetings in the business organization is problem solving and decision making. The key to effective problem solving and decision making discussions, is for you to all go through the process systematically.

Clarify the Problem
Right at the beginning, you ask the question, “What exactly is the problem?” Clarity of definition will resolve 50% of the issues before they go any further

Think About the Future
When discussing a problem, be sure to focus on the future over the past. Ask the question, “Where do we go from here?” “What do we do from here?” “What are our options for the future?” Too many problem-solving discussions end up focusing all of the attention of all the people present on what happened in the past and who is to blame. The effective executive uses this type of communication to focus on where the company and the individuals are going, and what can happen in the future – the only part of the equation over which anyone has any control.

Focus On the Solution
A second element in effective problem solving communications, is for you to talk about the solutions instead of talking about the problems. It is for you to keep the attention of the individuals in the meeting focused on the possible solutions and what can be done rather than what has already happened.

The discussion of solutions is inherently positive, uplifting and has a tendency to release creativity amongst the group. A discussion of problems is inherently negative, de-motivating and tends to inhibit creativity. You can become a positive thinker simply by becoming a solution-oriented person rather than a problem-oriented person. If you get everyone in your organization thinking and talking in terms of solutions, you will be astonished at the quality and quantity of ideas that will emerge.

Putting These Ideas Into Action
First, take some time to be absolutely clear about the problem that is under discussion. Give some thought to what an ideal decision or solution would accomplish. Instead of focusing on the situation as it is, talk about the situation as you would like it to be.

Second, keep the conversation focused on solutions, on what can be done in the future. The more you think and talk about solutions, the more positive and creative everyone will be and the better ideas you will come up with.

Brian Tracy Sales Success – Success Leaves Tracks

This is the ninth post in a series of articles by Brian Tracy. He is famous for his books and audio programs on success in sales and in other areas. This article is about learning from the experts. Enjoy!

Success Leaves Tracks
When I began searching for the secrets of success many years ago, I discovered an interesting principle: success leaves tracks. A wise man who had studied success for more than 50 years concluded that the greatest success principle of all was, “learn from the experts.”

Learn From the Experts
If you want to be a big success in any area, find out what other successful people in that area are doing, and do the same things, until you get the same results. When I studied the interviews, speeches, biographies and autobiographies of successful men and women, I found that they all had one quality in common. They were all described as being “extremely well organized.” They used their time very, very well. They were highly productive and they got vastly more done in the same period of time than the average person.

Be Both Effective and Efficient
High performing men and women were both effective and efficient. They did the right things, and they did them in the right way. They were constantly looking for ways to improve the quality and quantity of their output. As a result, their contribution to their organizations was vastly higher and therefore much better paid, than the contributions of the average person.

Action Exercises
Here are two things you can do immediately to put these ideas into action:

First, develop a study plan today to learn from the experts in your field. This can save you years of hard work.

Second, decide what is the most important thing to do, and then decide how to do it.
