Do you think that taking notes during the training sessions is "a grandma's method "?

     Yes and Not. These answers I will give to the question that you read in the headline of the article: "Do you think that taking notes during the training sessions is  "a grandma's method "?"

    "Yes", because training is a form of education, that should consist 80% of practices. Even if there is parts of reflection  or debriefing - there is still a lot of practice, that help people to learn information. I love trainings more than usual courses, because it is about learning by doing. You practice and develop a certain skill, same as in sport. But in this case is your personal or professional skill. The trainer evaluate you and give feedback and you try again.

   "No", because notes are super  important!
Let's see:

1) Because using notes and pencil (not laptop or phones) boost your understanding. When you write a note by hand it helps to recall the concepts in your brain, so you better understand them and memorize easier.
     A team of researchers  from the University of California, Los Angeles, decided to test the effects handwriting or typing notes. Both groups that took notes by writing them down or typing them in computer in one hour could reproduce pretty much the same amount of facts. BUT! Students, that wrote down the notes were able to produce more ideas, based on lecture information. Because when you type the notes you are almost "copying" the concepts.  But when you write the notes- you process them and generate ideas.

2) Because writing the notes boost your capacities to apply the concepts in your life.
During the same experiment from the first point, researches reviewed in a week how the concepts the students learned  will be applied in practice. And again, student that were writing their notes had better results!

3) Also Ideas do not stay for long, but your notes you always can review and work on!

So, if you want to get the most from the trainings- write down the main things and make them work for you!

The habit of being thankful for people that make my life lighter and more successful!

It's super important to acknowledge people that contribute to your development and achievements! That is why I would like to thank people periodically for who am I today!

Jian Reza - is my teacher of Swedish courses. She is amazing, super energetic and very fair person! I feel our group very lucky that we have such a teacher, because It's super interesting to come for dynamic lessons (by the way, our lessons are almost half of the usual working day) and learn by discussing new concepts of Swedish society! She also sometimes organize our visits to museums or libraries and help new comers to integrate faster! I am very thankful for her energy, help to be included in society and her fair attitude to everybody!

Tetiana Siianko - is first person who believed in me and made me part of interesting project in Sweden "Startup Weekend", where I was able to connect with a lot of interesting people, mentors and super active young entrepreneurs. She is also an awesome example …

Thanking the ones, that bring the impact in my life!

Hey, periodically I write about people that I feel very thankful, because they contribute to who I am today! They make me feel happier and show me a better world and many interesting opportunities around! Saying this, I would like to  mention in this article:

1. Inna Gurinova - is one of my best friends from former colleagues, that was always super straight about things and honestly presented her point of view. She is an amazing mom and friend, ready to give you a hand of help, good advice and a doze of positive motivation! I always felt that Inna can come up with a strong opinion about things, having wise arguments behind it!  No matter how far we are now, I am always feeling very happy when we talk  or call each other!

2. Zanda Saulite - is my today's colleague from Swedish courses and neighbor. I like her critical mind and very sharp humor! Zanda always gives  supportive hints during our experience of studding new language, since she knows it quite better then me. She can als…

Trust in yourself is a habit!

Lots of people would be able to achieve better results in their daily life, if they trusted themselves! Unfortunately, in many cases we do not believe 100% that we can achieve what we want. Our thoughts stop us to succeed!
   The good news is that we can change this! Trusting yourself is a habit and could be developed through repetition! Since we feel unsure in 2 cases:
1) when we experience something for the first time, we deal with something unknown.
2) when we experienced something negative previously  and have to repeat similar experience.

For example, when you have to talk in front of the audience, your emotions defined by previous experiences. If you didn't had the supportive audience before - you will feel very insecure or even stressed. Have you ever noticed that people, that have been supported by their family in childhood, feels more self confident and sure when they talk about something or take actions? It's because they have positive experience and are not afra…
