  • I have been talking about productivity for years on this channel.

  • A big part of what I've been covering in my videos has to do with study methods and techniques,

  • tips and tricks on how to be more organized and feel more motivated; but although these

  • methods are all very valuable because they allow you to optimize your work in a more efficient way,

  • I think that most of the time I fail to underline the most important aspect

  • of *any work* or study method or any productivity advice, and that is *consistency.*

  • Consistency is the only thing that makes your methods stick and do their magic.

  • Without discipline, a foolproof workflow will fail on its tracks.

  • In fact, consistency is *more important* than your methods because, most of the time,

  • independently of the method you choose to do your work,

  • consistency will be the thing that dictates our success.

  • That is why that after six years studying in college, I have found success while studying

  • only by taking notes, or mindmapping or simply reading the textbook.

  • When looking back I was puzzled to notice that it didn't seem like there was a perfect

  • study method for me - however I could easily conclude that the only thing there was in common in

  • my success stories was consistency; and the thing there was in common in all my failures

  • was a lack of it.

  • Methods are important but secondary.

  • There is high value in mastering different techniques and understanding what's the type

  • of workflow or learning process that works best for you; however, forming a habit out

  • of picking *any* method will be the detrimental factor in your success.

  • When you experience this, you will notice you can have the same results with different

  • methods; however, most of the times, these good marks will result from a consistent and

  • continued undertaking of those methods.

  • Consistency, of course, can manifest itself in different forms.

  • It can be seen as a simple habit-tracking formula, where you commit to do a certain

  • activity, like studying, every day.

  • It can also manifest into a deeper involvement with the subject-matter - something particularly

  • important with language learning, for example.

  • Getting involved with the subject in ways outside the scope of your class will boost that consistency.

  • Things like going to conferences, reading articles, talking to people about the subject,

  • writing an independent paper, watch a documentary; although you're not working in the most traditional

  • way, you're improving your understanding of the subject in a more organic manner, making

  • progress and becoming more consistent.

  • Also, know that there isn't a best method, a best technique or a best piece of tech or

  • equipment to dictate your success.

  • There are different ways to reach a certain result and although it's advisable that you

  • try to adapt to more generally efficient ways to produce good quality work,

  • they are not exclusive.

  • Developing your autonomy and re-adapting to the situation at hand is more important than

  • being stubborn and sticking to the same methods over and over again.

  • In that way, being a mindful student or a mindful worker that understands how they can

  • incorporate a steady workflow into a busy lifestyle is more important than spending

  • hours mindmapping your entire textbook the night before an exam and compromise your

  • understanding of the subject.

  • As I've said, one of the ways to get more involved is to find new ways to learn a subject.

  • Watching documentaries is one of my favorite ways to get a glimpse out of something I'm

  • curious about or I don't understand.

  • I've finished watching Chernobyl this week and I decided I wanted to learn more on the

  • subject so I started a documentary called called "Nature Fights Back in Chernobyl",

  • a documentary that explores the Chernobyl exclusion zone and how the nucclear accident

  • impacted animal life in the area.

  • If you want to watch the whole thing you can do so by signing up for free for CuriosityStream,

  • who is sponsoring today's video, and it has thousands of different titles in different categories and

  • was created by the original founder of Discovery.

  • As a special gift you can use the promo code "study corner" or click the link in the description box

  • to have a free 30-day membership, which will give you more than enough time to watch

  • the documentary as well as many other documentaries in their list.

  • It's also available for a ton of different devices so you can keep learning everywhere

  • and after your free membership, it just costs 2.99 a month and I think

  • that's pretty cheap for almost unlimited learning opportunities.

  • I hope you enjoyed today's episode.

  • If you love watching videos about productivity, motivation and organization, I create content

  • on these topics weekly so you can subscribe to the channel and click the bell button if you want to get notified

  • whenever I upload a new video.
