"It is necessary to combine knowledge born from study with sincere practice in our daily lives. These two must go together.” ~ Dalai Lama
To make learning easier and help absorb what is required - is to gather information and put into action what you are required to learn. Without reading you would not be able to keep up with the latest information and you would not be able to consider practising most things as you would not be aware of them.
Ideas to incorporate knowledge into our daily lives from positively present.
Tell someone else what you learned. When you spread the word about what you have learned, you are not only introducing others to a new topic, but you are also reminding yourself what you have learned. Every time you repeat it you are ingraining the knowledge more and ore into your mind. The more you tell others the more you will remember it. The more you remember it the more you will put those ideas into action.
The same also goes into study technique if you ask someone to listen to what you have learned not only have you learnt it yourself but the student is embedding what they need to know for the exam into their own mind as well.
Take notes on what you are learning. Just like I have told my daughter's ~ to write down what you have learned is to help your memory absorb and gain more understanding to what may be required in the exam. After you learn something, write it down somewhere. Make a list of what you want to do, add the action you want to take to your To Do list, or schedule time on your calendar to focus on your new course of action. Putting it in writing will make it more concrete and make it more likely that you’ll actually follow through.
Incorporate ideas into your routine. If you want to practice something or explore new knowledge in an action-oriented way, find a way to incorporate it into your daily (or, at the very least, weekly) routine. Take action first thing in the morning if you can to make sure that you don’t end up putting it off later in the day. If you need a little motivation, ask a friend or partner to take action with you. If you make your action part of your routine, you’ll be a lot more likely to stick with it.
Post reminders everywhere. Write a phrase (or a few phrases) that will remind you to take action and post it everywhere. Post it in your car, on your mirror, in your office, on your fridge—anywhere you’ll be likely to look and be reminded of the action you want to take.
Keep learning about the topic. The more you learn about a subject, the more space it takes up in your mind. The more space something takes up in your mind, the harder it is to forget about it. Therefore, it’s best to keep learning more about what you want to be knowledgeable about. The more you learn, the more you’ll think, and the more likely you’ll put these thoughts into action.
