So, I’ve created a short video that can help you create a small but powerful learning plan to help you to reach some small goals… and more importantly, focus, motivate and visualise.
I won’t go into too much detail here about why visualisation, motivation and focus are important because I just want you to watch the video and complete the exercise rather than thinking about all the theory.
Here’s a short summary:
When you visualise something, you tell your brain that it’s possible. When you know that something is possible, you are more likely to achieve it. For example, if you’re an anxious speaker, you could try visualising yourself being confident.
Next, when you focus on a single task, rather than many different tasks, you’re more likely to do a better job (and do it faster). It’s why it’s always better to do something with a purpose rather than at random.
Finally, when you’re motivated, you’ll be more excited to study and you’ll make more effort. Everyone knows what it’s like to have no motivation (it sucks and you don’t do anything). But… when you feel like you can do something, your motivation slowly comes back. It’s like when you find a vocabulary activity that you really like.
So, if more motivation, better visualisation skills, and more focus is something you want, watch this video and answer the questions.

Now that you’ve watched the video, answer the questions, and write your plan in the comments section here or on YouTube. This simple activity of ‘making your plan public‘ will push you to complete it even more.
