Ep.147 Why It’s So Damn Hard to Be Consistent With Your Studies as an Adult Learner

#147 – It’s pitched as the *most* important study skill, but why is it so goddamn hard to be consistent with your studies as an adult learner?

To learn effectively involves a significant amount of uncomfortable, stretching processes. The issue comes when students believe that finding studying really difficult is a sign that they’re just not that great at it. And when we regularly feel unconfident as learners we’re more likely to procrastinate, self-sabotage and just generally feel poopy. So this episode is going to give you the perspective shift and confidence boost you need to enjoy the rollercoaster journey of studying a heck of a lot more.

Ep.131 How to Overcome the Biggest Disadvantage of Distance Learning

#131 – I am a HUGE fan of studying in a way that fits into your life, and learning from home is a great option for many students, however there is one pretty hefty disadvantage of distance learning. Isolation. Studying at home alone. Studying without ever meeting your peers. Studying without much interaction with your tutor. There are lots of practical issues with this but there is one area that’s often overlooked – the emotional toll of studying by yourself. It can be harder to motivate yourself to study, and more difficult to pick yourself back up after a setback. It can be a struggle to keep yourself disciplined and focused too. But don’t worry. Today’s episode is all about addressing this biggest disadvantage of distance learning. I’m going to share multiple ways that you can feel more connected in your studies and we’ll dive into exactly how you can become a calmer, more focused student and how you can more easily make positive changes in your studying. Sound good? OK, let’s dive in. To get the links and shownotes for this episode, head to: https://chloeburroughs.com/episode131. Enrol in the Kickbutt Students Club.

#073 – Who comes up with the studying timelines we’re supposed to stick to? Us? The education system? Society? We live in a world where it’s still seen as ‘different’ and ‘non-traditional’ to still be in education past your early twenties.

Ep.063 How to Plan and Revise Effectively for an Online Exam

#063 – Sitting an exam in person, in an exam hall, can be a pretty stressful experience. But in-person exams have been the norm for most universities forever so it may feel a little daunting to have to sit an online exam at home. Or you may be thinking ‘yippee!’ at the thought of an online exam. Because they DO have their upsides. But they do require a different revision strategy than an in-person exam. When it’s less about memorisation and more about application...your revision strategies need to change. Yes, you may get to have your books and notes around to help, but that can actually cause more issues than it solves. In the past year I’ve worked with A LOT of students who took their first ever online exam from home...and failed...because they didn’t take it seriously, or because they didn’t think their exam strategy would have to change. In this episode, I’m going to share with you my simple 7-step process to help you plan and revise effectively for an online exam.
