“You will never change your life until you change something you do daily.
The secret of your success is found on your daily routine”
-Darren Hardy, The Compound Effect
Last week we spoke about breaking down long term goals into achievable short term goals and about scheduling your day.
The important aspect bridging this two is converting the steps towards your goals into a daily habit.
Habits according to Wikipedia is a routine of behaviour that is repeated regularly and tends to occur subconsciously.
Any activity done consciously for 21 days becomes a habit.
Forming habits towards your goal takes time, the key is keep doing it for the next 21 days until one day it becomes a second nature.
If you would like to learn to play Piano then initially schedule your day to practice Piano for say 1 hour at a specified time for the next 21 days, then you get into a rhythm. Practising 1 hour Piano everyday is now your habit. As the days go by, your Piano playing skills increases.
Hurray! You made time your partner in achieving your goal!!
Let’s create new habits 👍🏻👍🏻
It is true, you can learn a few phrases with the help of transliteration. Then why master the script first?
1. Transliteration; its limit ends with a few basic phrases.
The amount of materials you can have access is greater in the language you are learning than in the language through which you are learning a new language.
Learning a script isn’t as complex as it might seem. It is way too easier compared to grammar.
When you master a script, you will feel a sense of accomplishment which indeed motivates you to read further.
2. One of the most important things I have learned in my language learning journey is that ‘one must learn a language through that language’, so that we don’t have to keep translating what we want to say in our minds before speaking. For example, if I want to say ‘how are you?’ in French I just say ‘comment ça va?’ With only the situation in mind and not translating ‘how are you?’
“ONE MUST SPEAK A LANGUAGE; THINKING THROUGH THAT LANGUAGE”
How beautiful the word sounds.
I just came across this really special word – Polyglot, which defines a person who speaks multiple languages. Isn’t it great guys? To top this up, there is the term Hyperpolyglot, which defines a person who speaks more than 12 languages. Ever since then my goal has been to become a hyperpolyglot….yeah!! Join me in my journey, as we live through some beautiful languages…I will be posting upon the resources I used, my notes, some tips which worked for me and much more…
Introverts are neither too social nor are they anti-social elements. They are just normal breathing human beings with a different definition of being social.
They would rather fit into an intermediate class called ‘differently social’, where they try to find a balance between the both like a perfect rhythm of salt and sweet.
The combination of social and anti social is as dynamic as any combination of salt and sweet thereby giving them a touch of unpredictable nature-hood.
