PERFECT! - one
If you subscribe to this newsletter, it means that you understand that everything you can actually achieve in your intellectual life is ahead of you. These are not beautiful words and not a desire to somehow support you or flatter you. IT'S TRUE.
You, of course, heard or read that our brain is involved only 3-5% of its "power". This does not mean that the brain is lazy and does not want to do anything else. He can do and is doing much more, another thing is that we must somehow help him in this and learn to get the most out of what he can. Let's prove it.
To begin, let's make a simple testik. Read, remember, and then without looking at the screen, reproduce the following list of words. The exercise is given 3-5 minutes.
one. A pen
9. the Rose
ten. Record player
What are the results? If you remember from 5 to 9 words, it means that you have a normal memory state, that is, usually. If 10-12 is a good memory, if 13-15 is excellent, if it is more than 15, then you have already taken this kind of course or you have a phenomenal memory.
Now the second testik. Remember this morning in detail. Set aside for 2 minutes.
Remember? I assure you that everyone here remembered everything to the maximum - who stood up for what time, eaten for breakfast, read what newspaper, watched on TV, how he got to work, etc.
QUESTION - where is more information - in the description of the morning or in the unfortunate 20 words? It goes without saying that in the description of the morning. Nevertheless, you remembered the morning, and with the testik we suffered.
How to change the situation? Just need to engage in brain training. After all, he, like the muscles, wipes without training.
Most importantly, simple and accessible methods and exercises will help you to increase the productivity of your mental work so much that you won’t believe yourself in a month or two.
The most important role is played by the intellectual environment that you have created for yourself. You form the environment, the environment forms you. Even in everyday life, a lot can be changed with huge benefits for the brain, and, therefore, for oneself, without significantly changing the way of life.
Do you know that the memory of an idiot differs from the memory of a genius only twice? And what is the distance between them! Well, it goes without saying that you are not in the first category. But the second has not yet reached. Do not worry, the distance is completely overcoming.
It is only important to take care of yourself. True, there is one significant difficulty. The most terrible and big. This really needs to be addressed. Use all methods and methods. And the new organization of mental activity, and training, and exercises, and vitamins, and drugs, and a slightly changed style of nutrition (no one will demand to abandon meat and cakes).
That is, we will be like athletes. Regular exercise and proper nutrition.
There is one more thing that I think will help along the way. I enter and leave it for the next newsletter. She will be out soon. The first you have been waiting for, thank you. Now there will be no delays.
Well, how are the test results? I suspect that 20 out of 20 few have fulfilled, but it does not matter. It is necessary to beat the alarm, if less than 5 words. If more - the normal state of memory.
Newsletter is named PERFECT. Named so because those qualities, the development of which will be discussed, to some extent present in all. Another thing is that often their condition, let's say, is not entirely satisfactory. And the most offensive is that in order to develop them, you need nothing at all. Just take it and do it.
There are methods and techniques that give absolutely fantastic results. But I have seen few such results, because it is rare - a person who will be engaged in, say, only the development of attention a few hours a day.
I will try to focus on the exercises and methods that do not take a lot of time, which can be completely done without any special disturbances to the normal rhythm of life. But I guarantee a huge benefit!
So, what sections will go "perfect!".
one. Attention, concentration.
2 Meditation, relaxation.
four. Memory as a function of the body.
five. The development of channels.
7 Activation of thinking.
eight. The discovery of his own genius.
It is not for nothing that I singled out motivation. In order to improve, you need a motive. Serious.
What is not considered:
· For general development;
· I need it;
· I want to become better and smarter;
· I want to unleash my potential.
So, this is all vague and cannot be a motive. It usually happens like this. A week at the best of occupation, then a routine is stuck. Mailing stops reading, exercises are forgotten and, at best, replenish intellectual baggage. You can even advise someone to do them.
· I want to be an example for a child;
· I want a promotion (not just promotion, but a specific position);
· I want to memorize 300 words in a row and all the phones;
· I want to remember all the people with whom I met;
· I want to finish university with brilliance and defend a thesis.
That is, the motive must be specific. Example. Several people came to my seminar on the methods of accelerated learning of foreign languages. Successes in learning the material are the same for all. But…
Lyudmila Sergeevna, 48 years old. In two months, go to Norway, and for a long time. Without a basic knowledge of the language can all fly away. The result - 100 words a day is easy, the phrasebook has learned by heart a week.
Peter, 35 years old. The motive is to read Baudelaire in the original. And it was clear that the motive is momentary. The result - at the workshop I learned everything, got a “tool” and carefully put it on the shelf. In principle, too bad. There will be a motive - everything will go like clockwork. But if there is a motive.
Therefore, the first lesson is devoted to motivation. Actually, each lesson will begin with motivation. Now do this.
one. Set or invent a specific goal. Even the most fantastic.
2 On a piece of paper write what needs to be done to achieve it intellectually. Memorize it.
3 No matter how funny it would look, but at home on A4 paper write the target and hang it in a prominent place. To remind.
four. Make small plans for the week. For example, in a week, to do such and such an exercise in such and such a time. Write down a plan and in a week ask yourself what has been done.
And you know, while composing this issue, I had a brilliant idea, I think.
one. I will draw up a schedule for this mailing myself. I'll write and hang on a copyholder on a computer.
2 I will draw up a development plan for you (according to the proposed program) and send it out in the next newsletter.
3 I ask everyone to do the same, that is, to bring it out on paper and place it in a prominent place.
four. Each subsequent release will begin with questions about the implementation of the plan.
So, according to the plan, the next mailing list is October 14, Tuesday. I reserve the right to early implementation.
While I say goodbye and go to implement the idea.
Improve - 3
I understand that it is already the 15th of October, and it was promised to make an issue on the 14th. But there is one small detail - for me it is still the 14th, that is, while I sit at the computer, the working day continues.
So, to the question of motivation. I will try to offer a motive that might interest you. Let it even sound a bit vague, but you will make it concrete yourself.
Set a goal - to achieve in three months:
· if you are a student, become the best on the course and try to get some scholarship on this basis;
· if you work - become the best employee in your field;
· if you are a businessman - improve the course of business and turnover by 2 times;
· if you are a schoolboy - to get rid of tutors, save your parents and yourself money, successfully prepare for any exam.
Fill these goals with specific content, taking into account the characteristics of the place of work or study.
In order to achieve them, you must achieve:
· Increase attention and concentration at least three times;
· To be able to achieve a state of complete relaxation (why we need it - let's say further);
· To see in any subject the characteristics and features of at least 20;
· Memorize 30 words, five phone numbers in a row;
· Intensify thinking and turn channels into full force.
Write the indicators you need to reach and hang the piece in a prominent place.
Let's go gradually and start with ATTENTION AND CONCENTRATION .
Without well-developed attention and concentration, success is impossible in any kind of activity. A person whose attention is hovering in the middle of nowhere, the concentration is weak, loses a lot, if not more.
Attention and concentration are the parents of intuition. We will not take into account until the mystical insights, prophetic dreams, prompting voices, etc. This is probably all there is to be, but we are about something else.
Our brain is all the time at work. All the events that we see, hear, touch, etc. inevitably leave their mark on our memory. But one thing is when these traces go to a latent, that is, a hidden memory, another is when the brain does not just capture the traces, but processes them and creates an informational picture. Even if this work occurs outwardly imperceptibly, but the information does not disappear and at the right time helps to make the right decision that a person cannot always explain. This is intuition - skillful perception of incoming information and decision-making based on it.
Although, to be honest, if you put on a little effort, you can explain the line of reasoning and the reasons for the decision. Natalya Petrovna Bekhterova in her research proved that the brain is capable of turning an avalanche of information in literally seconds. She came to this conclusion when she explored "rescued drowned men" who told her that in the moments before them their whole life passed. And not some bright episodes, but the whole life in the smallest details. The brain gave the command to look for a situation that would suggest a way out of the situation. This is the potential of our brain!
So we just do not always have time to realize why we made this or that decision, why we remembered something better, and something worse.
And the first step towards unlocking this potential is the development of attention and concentration.
Now get distracted, take a free pose and think about the kangaroo for a few minutes, imagine it and think only of it.
And after these very few minutes, answer yourself the question: “What am I thinking now?”.
I am sure that we thought about something else. Example: “Kangaroos live in Australia, they are such animals with bags. Yesterday I saw a good bag in GUM, I should have bought it, but I don’t have much money with it. idiot Sidorov, who ... "And so on. This, of course, exaggerated, but the picture is described correctly.
Attention tends to dissipate, jump from one to another. And if we do something, then we can hold it in place for a maximum of 30 minutes. And you need attention to be active. This is what you need to train.
By the way, the example of a kangaroo is quite a good exercise. Just need to do it like this. Let's say before bedtime start thinking about something. After a while, when you catch yourself thinking that the attention has already gone far, try to go back, that is, to return to the starting point of reflection. Very useful exercise.
Another exercise. If there is a clock with an arrow, then look at the second hand for three minutes. No distractions. It is easy at first glance, in fact, learning three minutes to see only the second hand is quite difficult. And we are talking about seeing exactly the arrow, and sometimes it happens that the gaze froze on it, but in front of the inner eye there are completely different pictures.
So, attention must be included constantly. You can say that you need to be constantly concentrated. And it should be done without efforts on oneself, efforts will bring nothing, sooner or later you get tired of fighting with yourself.
Several exercises on the development of attention and concentration.
The third exercise . While talking on the phone, draw a tic-tac-toe sheet on a piece of paper one after the other. And do not lose the thread of conversation. Make sure that the picture is beautiful, and not spread in all directions.
The fourth exercise . Standing in a queue or while riding in public transport, count from 200 to 1 in three. That is, 200-197-194 and so on. Got down - immediately start over. And so on until the failures stop.
You ask about the first two? So we have already given them to you ("kangaroo" and "clock with an arrow").
Due to lack of attention and low concentration a person loses a lot. For example, they convince you of something, and you mentally elsewhere. Yes, you can twist the rope at this time! How many Times have you been persuaded to any nonsense? And if you were attentive and concentrated - this would not have happened.
And by the next release of the newsletter (October 19-20) try to achieve:
· see the arrow for 3 minutes;
· 200 to 1 count easy;
· at least five minutes really think of a kangaroo;
· clearly write tic-tac-toe in the continuation of the telephone conversation about three minutes.
And then we continue!
Good day to all!
Alas, there were objective reasons why the issue of distribution was delayed. But, nevertheless, we are together again.
As always, let's start with motivation. It must be constantly fed as a fire. Otherwise, as often happens, the primary enthusiasm gradually fades away in the bustle of normal business. And you should always remember that you have a goal - to become the best. Not better, namely the best. And think about the benefits that may well follow.
I do not want to regale you with rubbish like the myth of the non-existent Anastasia or the School of my craft. The phenomenon of the popularity of these phenomena is associated with the usual laziness of the soul and the fact that many do not believe in God. Belief in God is the work of the soul, and work is stressful enough, but, in the end, it is a great joy.
And to believe in the ray of Anastasia or the fact that the word “work” is spelled correctly “RABOT” is the usual laziness of the soul and the hope of a miracle, belief in a sorcerer and a psychic who will do everything for us. Or we will make a little effort without any responsibility, as we were so convincingly advised and so convincingly guided!
Therefore, you have a motivation - only then the Lord will help you when you are worth it, that is, you will improve. In all senses.
Recall the previous lesson. So, who was able to perform the recommended exercises? I hope that they did not cause any difficulties, and you began to feel the benefits. In one of the following newsletters, we will definitely publish feedback from those who regularly do exercises and have achieved decent results. For you, this can also serve as a good motive.
Continue on attention and concentration. I will not again convince you of their great value, especially since you yourself understand this perfectly well.
Just get used to being constantly focused and keep your attention on. Just do not think that it will wear you out, that you will resemble a spy or a scout who is constantly in suspense and is always looking for enemies. No, everything is easier. It is just that at some stage you will, without exerting effort, process much more information. And it doesn’t require special work, you will not be tired, but intuition will be included much more often.
Today, not just exercises, but let me put it this way, the concept of attention and concentration.
one. Set yourself a specific task - to learn 70 new words of a foreign language, to put things in order in the closet, to disassemble papers. And concentrate only on this task. You will always be distracted by something, thoughts go somewhere. You should only pay attention to the implementation of the task. It seems simple. But you can see for yourself how difficult it is at first. Therefore, you can first set yourself the standard time for half an hour. Then this interval can be increased. When you learn to concentrate on one task and discard disturbing factors, you will feel how much more you have done and done.
Do not smirk, they say, I can do that. Try it!
2 Every day on the way to work or school, look closely at the route of movement. Be sure to try every day to find at least 20 differences compared with yesterday. The number of differences gradually increase.
3 You probably every day (or almost every) see your friends. Also try to notice all the differences that you see in them compared to the previous meeting. And do not think that if you know a person well, then this is a very simple exercise. The ability to see and discover new features, characteristics, changes in the seemingly trivial will give you a lot.
You will get the effect from these exercises in two or three weeks. Which one See and appreciate yourself. Next time we will talk about meditation and relaxation.
Again, we have to ask for forgiveness, but what to do - invitations to hold seminars on the development of memory and the rapid study of foreign languages began to flow rapidly. What to do is my bread and my hobby, so the break was caused by objective reasons. But a lot of useful information has accumulated, including observations at seminars.
Firstly, the development of a set of exercises that can be performed without discontinuing from ordinary activities, but which will make it possible to make a significant step forward, ends. In total, these are 17 simple tasks-occupations, but people feel the benefits of them.
By the way, in this sense, I want to give a letter to Svetlana Khodakova (of course, with her kind consent).
Ivan Ivanovich, hello again! I have received your "Improve-4" newsletter and decided to share my achievements: 1. I began to get less tired at work (!!!) - and this is at 8-10, or even 12-hour working day.2. I can walk along the corridor (for example, to another department for a consultation), meet a colleague, talk, and continue my journey, without trying hard to remember: "Where did I go and why." 3. Whatever I do, I can calmly and substantively talk on the phone on another topic, and continue my work, again not wrinkling my forehead from the strain. In general, life has become easier. Exercises I used: counting in reverse order with changing multiplier (after 3, after 4, after 6); clock hand; tic-tac-toe during a telephone conversation. Thanks again to you very much. With respect, Svetlana Khodakova
I am very pleased to read such letters. And the point is not that it is flattering, but that what I write and propose finds a response and is beneficial. So the work goes right.
Today is the last introductory lesson for attention and concentration. We will periodically return to this topic.
Somehow, I have sunk into the soul one phrase of Sherlock Holmes about what people watch, but do not see. I must say that Mr. Holmes motivated himself to be healthy - to become the best detective of the planet. That he succeeded as a result. If someone is going to re-read Conan Doyle, in addition to the plot, pay attention to the details, to the course of the thinking process, to the ability to see what others are missing.
Today is one exercise. It is necessary to do it from time to time, in the mood, it is not necessary to do it every day. It was just about 15 minutes, so they used a pause. And we call him Andrei Tarkovsky.
Imagine yourself as a great director shooting a movie at home. You immediately and movie camera and tape recorder, and ... I do not even know what to call the fixation of sensations.
So, you are sitting quietly and relaxed in a chair or on the couch. According to the plot of the film, you are shooting an antiturazhny scene called "Apartment".
First you are a movie camera. You carefully consider what is opposite you. You have looked at this wall, at these objects many times. And now consider everything carefully, as if the operator is slowly leading the camera lens. Consider all the details. How many new things you will see!
Now you are a tape recorder. Carefully catch all the noises. When a person is engaged in something, he hears very selectively, only what he pays attention to as needed. And now you hear all the noises. The noise outside the window, the ticking of the clock, the buzz of the fan, the steps behind the wall. When you realize that you have heard all the noises and that you usually don’t hear all of this, record the sensations.
Feel the warmth of the clothes, the softness of the chair, the hardness of the floor, as the collar touches the neck ...
It's enough. Believe me, this is a short exercise, but it gives a lot. You will gradually make the state “see everything, hear everything, feel everything” in your normal state.
Recently, at the seminar, one girl started talking about intuition. She rode in the train, thinking about which way to go home. By convenient and long, or uncomfortable and short. And suddenly she felt, she let out that if she went along a good road, she would meet a type near one building, which she was very unpleasant with and with whom she would not like to meet at all.
She decided to check herself and went on a good road. And it is necessary, she met this unpleasant person! Naturally, she immediately attributed everything to a certain revelation, magic, since in a normal situation the probability of meeting him in this place was not very high.
I had to disappoint the man. Careful analysis showed that the brain simply reworked a huge amount of information and issued a solution - at this time this person will be in this place. But this work proceeded imperceptibly for the girl. She only felt the end result of this work.
But this is not always the case. So, the exercise "Andrei Tarkovsky" will allow such revelations and manifestations of intuition to be found much more often. As well as the exercises already recommended.
By the way, this exercise is also a great opportunity to relax.
In the next mailing list, I will start issuing this set of exercises, which I have already mentioned.
To new, I hope, now soon meetings!
We start, as always, with motivation. One of the options is the letters of readers who do not just read the newsletter, but try to apply the recommendations and perform the above exercises. That's what Victor writes.
“I really liked the article and especially the exercise“ Andrei Tarkovsky. ”Indeed, after the first two weeks, I noticed that attentiveness is increasing.
Immediately respond to all requests for expulsion of previous releases. Literally at the end of this or the beginning of the next week we will have a decent site with a normal name. That is short. There we will lay out all the archives and you can safely download them.
And here is an additional MOTIF that works very often. If you engage in the proposed exercises, then in literally a month, maximum, two, you will go so far ahead in your own development that it will be difficult to recognize you (do not be afraid, there will be no plastic surgery).
But your friends and relatives will appreciate it to a lesser extent than those with whom you do not see very often. Changes every day are insignificant and their scale can be assessed only after a lapse of time, provided that the “components” remain behind the frame, and only the result can be seen. But the result will be impressive.
So, think about who you want to surprise. For example, the one whom you have always been set as an example, so much so that this “example” has already gotten pretty. Or you came to get a job, and you were told to come in a month or two. It is clear that this is a polite form of refusal, but you still go. In general, you can come up with something.
And now the question is - why did great people keep diaries? At the seminars I was given a variety of answers. The most typical - in order to then publish, and for a fee.
Alas, not so prosaic. Talented and ingenious people often found methods of developing their best qualities on an intuitive level. We have already said that intuition is often the result of a tremendous amount of brain work, and sometimes we don’t even notice the process of this work. We catch only the result. The desire to keep a diary from the same opera.
But first, the essence of the recommendations about keeping a diary:
If you want to gain ABSOLUTE MEMORY and DEVELOP IMAGINATION , it is not necessary to go to psychics. You only need perseverance.
Every day, morning and evening, you need to scroll through the mind of all the events of the past day, remembering them to the most details and the smallest details. In addition, you should evaluate your own actions, committed for this day, asking yourself the following questions: “What have I done today? What didn't you do? What actions deserve condemnation and require repentance? How should you rejoice? ”
Having mastered the one-day technique of the examination of consciousness, begin to gradually dive into the past, remembering what happened yesterday, the day before yesterday, and so on.
There are some subtle points here.
The first. To perform, we recommend keeping a diary. It disciplines and facilitates the process.
The second. Many of those who began to do this exercise, then asked: "And why not see real progress? I have been writing for three weeks!" The most important moment is the recollection in the mornings, and many were limited only to evening memories.
So the technology is this. In the evening, made an entry in the diary. It doesn’t have to be a detailed report, it’s enough, as practice shows, half a page, well, a page maximum, if not laziness. Of course, the more the better. The main thing is that at the same time you will remember and ask yourself questions, which were discussed above.
And obligatory repetition in the morning. Do not write, of course, just remember. You can even peek into the diary at first.
When you manage one day, move on to two. Then for three days. And so on until a week.
Now imagine what the state of your memory will be if you can remember the whole week calmly, without any tension?
This is the answer to the question of why great people kept diaries. Understand that it develops. So you can try. Please note that the fruits of this method of development will give only if regularly used.
Many people ask whether it is necessary to keep a diary in a written, so to speak, form. If you can - you can just limit yourself to remembering (not remembering, but remembering, these are different things). But then it is more difficult to tune in to the working mode and regular execution.
There is also no clear schedule “after how much time to move on to the next stage”. Orient yourself. As soon as the ease of doing "three days" came, go to "four days."
The next issue will start with the news. Rather, with the news. Our Center for Intellectual Technologies has finally earned a normal site - www.shram.kiev.ua .
On it you will find the archives of all our newsletters, a catalog of our products, something in the library and much more. We hope that the site turned out to be interesting. So we invite!
And now to improve. I hope that many of you do the exercises that were discussed in previous releases of the newsletter. Moreover, we dare to hope that they have benefited. Especially attention and concentration exercises.
A small lyrical digression. When at seminars I hear complaints about deteriorated memory, reaction, quickness, I can very easily manage to prove that the whole thing is just attention. If you do not train him, then problems begin gradually, which is quite natural.
And very often it is possible to normalize the situation in a complaining person with simple exercises. For example, those that you already know.
But today is an additional exercise. Remember, I promised that the whole proposed system of improvement will not require you to significantly change your usual way of life? After all, within its framework it is quite possible to find opportunities for improvement.
one. Write the numbers from 1 to 50 and at the same time count (preferably out loud) from 50 to 1. Make it easy to do the exercise, and you will notice how much more productive you have become.
2 Reading the newspaper, looking at the urban landscape while traveling by public transport, find words longer than 7 letters and mentally read them in reverse. At first it will be difficult to do this. Gradually come the skill. When you can do it again without tension, then consider that the next round in your improvement has come. Naturally, provided that it is not the same set of words that you will learn just automatically.
It seems to us that these exercises will not require much time and effort from you. But develop attention, and this is important.
So start right now, do not shelve them. Let's summarize a little on attention and concentration. In your arsenal:
one. Mental retention of attention on the subject of reflection, and in case of withdrawal of attention, returning it “to its place” in the same way it went. It is advisable to perform at bedtime.
2 Hold the clock hand in the field of attention for three minutes. Can be done in public transport, at a meeting, in line, etc.
3 Drawing tic-tacs on a sheet of paper during a telephone conversation. It is desirable not to look at the paper, but to ensure that the tic-tac-toe turns out neat.
four. Mental count from 200 to 1 through three. Again, performed in public transport, in line, etc. When this exercise will be easy, start counting after 3 and 5 alternately, that is, complicate it.
five. And two of today's exercises.
Only these exercises are enough for you to noticeably grow above you.
In the next issue we will finish with attention and move on to other topics. But in the next issue we will talk about the methods of working with Schulte tables (there are such). Proper analysis of the results of working with them will allow you to clearly define both your type of attention and optimize your work schedule.
We continue to recruit for correspondence courses of development of memory and intelligence. We remind you that these are 14 lessons for independent study with audio applications. The system does not require a significant amount of time, but it gives quite a decent result.
Hello to all before the New Year and MERRY CHRISTMAS!
It is clear that this year is the latest issue of the newsletter. Therefore, first of all, accept the warmest and warmest congratulations from our Center for Intelligent Technologies on the upcoming holidays. All the most beautiful, bright, joyful!
Now back to the issues of cultivation. Holidays are fun, and there are many weekends, and all the more you can spend time with yourself.
Last time I promised to talk about working with Schulte's tables. First of all, about what it is. With all the external simplicity - the most powerful simulator for the development of attention.
You can easily make them. So, draw on the sheet of paper a grid of 25 squares, that is, 5x5. Then number them in random order from 1 to 25. You need 5 such tables.
Draw them and forget about them for a couple of days. Then, choosing a time when no one bothers you, do this exercise.
Mentally find on each table all the numbers in turn in ascending order. And try to note the time you spend on each table. It is considered normal if you meet somewhere in 35-40 seconds per table.
Having received five values, you can easily determine the peak of your attention in time. Options can be very different. Some have a peak of attention on the first tables. For others, the middle or the last table.
And adjust your schedule to this data. Have the tasks that you solve, according to the complexity of your attention schedule.
If you have children - help them build an optimal schedule for working with homework. If you are a student - consider the schedule in preparation for the session. If you, say, hold meetings, the most difficult questions put on the peak of your attention.
I guarantee that those who make these experiments with Schulte's tables and will take into account the results obtained in their work will be able to raise the effectiveness of their work at least three times.
And do not forget to sometimes do the exercises that were described in the previous issue.
Before the New Year I will not load you too much. Let's leave it all next year. I hope with the help of this newsletter, it will be more fruitful for you.
And for those who want to seriously engage in the development of their abilities and intelligence, we invite you to our "Correspondence course of development of memory and intelligence."
14 brochures, lessons, audio applications with interesting lecture material, exercises and, most importantly, motivation for classes - the basis of the course. Supplements you will receive by email. In addition - various interesting things, new items, the latest technological developments.
Those who have already completed the course (more than 150 people) note that they really discovered new reserves in themselves and were able to make a qualitative leap in their development.
We believe that the main advantage of the course is that it is maximally adapted to the flow of ordinary daily life and easily fits into the usual way.
Once again, congratulations to all, everyone, everyone!
Peace to your home!
The first newsletter in the New Year. Thanks to everyone who continues to stay with us. And we will now continue the theme of "Improve!", Which began last year.
But first a small message. We started posting in the "Brain work brain" mailing list a long-promised set of "mental aerobics." We decided not to scatter it on mailings, but to concentrate in one. Subscribe to the newsletter "Stimulants of the brain" on our website www.shram.kiev.ua . There, by the way, you will find the archives of all our newsletters.
So, last year we started the topic of working with Schulte tables. And got the first reviews and questions. Firstly, those who made the tables for themselves found the lesson interesting and instructive. But many noted a large scatter of results, dependence, for example, on the time of day, on the state, etc.
Here you can say the following. First, to improve the statistics, try the tables 7x7, that is, 49 digits. And still "solve" five tables in a row. Secondly, build graphs of the dependence of the average result of solving the tables on the time of day. And analyze the results. Thereby you will easily determine your optimal work schedule. Naturally, the "working peak" falls on those moments when the speed of solving the tables is maximum, that is, the time spent is minimal.
One more method of developing attention and mental warm-up was sent by our subscriber, who advised randomly throwing matches on the table and counting them with a glance. At random in terms of quantity.
We tried. It really helps to get together before work, tune in, so to speak, to the desired wave.
Continue to work with Schulte's tables and perform those exercises on the development of attention and concentration, which we advised in previous releases of the newsletter. The result is sure to be.
Today let's talk more about motivation. We promised to periodically return to this topic, because only an effective motive can force a person to overcome laziness and routine and get engaged in cultivation.
Not only a specific goal can act as a motive. Sometimes it helps and this simple way, which, in particular, helped me in my time. Its essence lies in the fact that you would be constantly reminded to do something, to do some exercise or training. Who will remind? A4 sheets, on which the names of the exercises are written and hung throughout the apartment . You know, it worked!
And the second moment. Very much can help ordinary rosary. For example, when I counted the scattered matches, I picked up the rosaries with one hand. And I found that it helps to do this exercise faster. That is, the rosary helped to concentrate.
In one class conducted an experiment. Pupils who went to the board to answer were allowed to use rosary when answering. In the sense of sorting through them. I must say that the quality of the answers at the blackboard has improved, the teachers clearly noticed this. The students became more focused, the monotonous movement of sorting through the rosary calmed and helped to remember or solve problems. And this was noted by the students themselves.
Remember we talked about a moment of meditation and relaxation? How to do it with a rosary, and in any situation, I will tell you next time. And doing these exercises in public transport. I felt the result. Now, without a rosary in his pocket, even somehow uncomfortable. The thing is inexpensive, but the one who once came up with them is a genius.
The release was a bit lightweight. But, I hope, caused your interest. And this is the main thing.
The Center for Intellectual Technologies continues recruiting for the correspondence course in the Development of Memory and Intelligence , which will help:
- students and schoolchildren - to study effectively without tedious cramming, quickly prepare for exams;
· business people - to find the key to the operational business, ahead of competitors in the speed of assimilation and use of commercial information; -
· employees - to move up the career ladder or find a well-paying job.
The seminars and courses are based on the most modern methods and techniques that completely exclude any effect on the subconscious, are easily digested, have no age restrictions and do not cause any negative health effects.
You yourself will be surprised at how much you will remember!
Let's start today with messages. I recommend to subscribe, if you have not already done so, to our two newsletters:
one. "Stimulators of the brain". In it, we began to lay out a complex of "mental aerobics."
2 "Music and intelligence". It publishes our research report on the influence of music on the intellect, and not only on it.
You can subscribe to the site www.shram.kiev.ua .
And we will continue the topic of improvement. Last time we stopped at work with Schulte's tables and on the rosary as a tool for development.
Our reader from Vladivostok has sent two links to websites, where there are 6 programs that generate Schulte tables. Here they are:
We looked, everything seems to be normal, and, most importantly, do not draw the table itself. Mouse click - and the table in front of you. Improve. Thank you, Roma!
And now about the rosary. You can not imagine how useful thing! It seems nothing special - a thread with balls strung on it, and the enormous benefit of cultivation can bring! Let's go through the points, and this is just what we "discovered." And how much more can there be!
one. Often come letters with complaints on the topic "How to force yourself to do exercises? How to force yourself not to be lazy?" So, one of the ways is to do all the exercises with rosaries in your hands. One step exercise - one clear. For example, a score from 200 to 1 after three. The rosaries in this case play the role of a mobilizing factor.
2 If you work with rosaries (when it is possible), listen to a lecture, answer the exam, talk with the boss, rhythmic movements with your fingers while picking up the rosary allow you to concentrate and calm down. They checked themselves - it works.
3 Suppose you are a religious person and wish to read prayers from time to time. Rosary will help to do this.
four. Exercises for the development of attention and concentration with the rosaries are performed easily and the effect of their implementation appears much sooner.
five. And the most important application that we have found for ourselves is affirmations. What is affirmation? This is a kind of short formula for positive self-programming. I want to say this. Much depends on a person’s attitude, on whether he believes in himself or not, whether he believes in success or not, etc. If a negative attitude towards a case has settled in the soul, then consider that it has disappeared - what you think is what you are about. And once I read about such an affirmation. It was recommended 50 times in the morning and in the evening to say the same phrase (remember it!):
"WITH EVERY DAY EVERYWHERE AND IN EVERYTHING MY CASES ARE GOING EVERYTHING BETTER AND BETTER!"
The book said that even if you do not believe in all these moments, all the same this exercise will be useful. It is only important to do it. If you repeat the same thing many times, then, sooner or later, you will believe in success, but he will not be slow to wait.
Filled with some skepticism, I started doing it. Without a rosary, I had to count how many times I said the phrase. Of course, it turned out tedious and generally not so hot.
But when I began to do this with a rosary, I was convinced that this exercise was performed easily and naturally. Moreover, I began to read the news at any opportunity. And not twice a day, but seven times. And it did not take time.
And what do you think? Optimism really began to settle in the soul. The most interesting thing is that things went better.
It will be a bit annoying if someone takes it all frivolously. After all, in fact, we are talking about very serious things. The source of the trouble for ourselves is ourselves. Alas, I had the good fortune to be sure. A lot depends on what is happening inside us.
And the rosary helps to "put things in order" in his soul. And it is worth a lot!
I can only wish you success and try the action of this magic tool on yourself!
In one of the following newsletters, I will talk about the use of clear-cut intellectual development, relying on some basic psychological principles. And, specifically speaking, including "on improving the quality of study and the assimilation of information, the development of memory and concentration using the methods of Academician Sytin."
There are questions about our correspondence course in the development of memory and intelligence. And sometimes they ask about the specific benefits of this course, and even in numerical terms. Therefore, such information.
one. It is considered normal that, after completing the seventh lesson, a 250 words memorization test is performed easily and without tension. No doubt, you are entitled to ask about the need to memorize so many words. We answer that this is just a test, but which characterizes the degree of memory development very well.
2 It is considered normal that, after mastering the eighth and tenth lessons, the speed of memorization of foreign words reaches 150 words per day with strong memorization and maneuverable reproduction. True, some are limited to thirty words a day, but this is someone as it should.
3 Although this goal is not set directly, the reading speed should increase two to three times.
four. The productivity of working with texts increases several times.
This is so in brief. In fact, the opportunities that will open up before you are much more and not always intellectual development can be expressed in numbers. Although it would be desirable.
Good luck and success to all!
First - a message that will go in all upcoming releases of all mailings. We receive a lot of letters with a request to send previous releases of mailings. Of course, we do not refuse anyone, but, to be honest, this is a rather routine matter. Therefore, we immediately appeal to everyone - on our website www.shram.kiev.ua there is an ARCHIVAL page, on which there are all issues of all our eight mailings. If there is no release, go and download.
We really hope that you are doing or, in any case, trying to do exercises on the development of attention and concentration. I will cite today another argument in favor of such studies.
Everyone has probably heard about such teaching methods as the 25th frame, learning in a dream, learning by penetrating the subconscious, pilot signals, etc., etc. How do you sometimes want something so wonderful, magical! Faith and hope for a miracle are based on two things - the realization that a person has great potential, and the usual laziness.
We will not argue with the first one - indeed, the potential inherent in us by the Most High is enormous. With the second, alas, also not argue, for myself I know. Therefore, the success of "magic wands".
Meanwhile, psychologists have long known that in order to memorize and comprehend something, you need to pay attention to this ATTENTION. And what attention in the 25th frame or in training in a dream?
Previously, more, now appeared less "new methods based on the phenomenon of X, which used in the special services." And the most interesting thing is that all these “wonders” actually had nothing to do with the special services. Here the development of attention, concentration - is another matter. And jokes with the subconscious can end badly. The subconscious is a delicate thing, there are few psychologists who can and have the right to work with it. And that, if they are asked to do this, and not on their own. But to prompt a person how to find contact with his subconscious, it is quite acceptable.
By the way, the program of our Correspondence Course in the Development of Memory and Intelligence almost completely coincides with the program of one of the ties of educational institutions that train foreign intelligence specialists. However, in this institution the program is much wider - there the department of psychology is very powerful and also gives a lot of other, specific knowledge. So, I dare to assure you, there are no “zombies, coding and 25 frames”. Just a powerful development of attention, concentration, memory, intelligence. But let us leave these arguments for the mailing "Secrets of the development of intelligence in the special services."
By the way, what kind of institution was meant - I do not inform. Not from the desire to let the fog and not out of great secrecy. The guys just showed a lot, shared the materials, well, I don’t want to substitute them - you never know? And who owns the question - this institution can quite calculate, the benefit of them is not so much.
In general, I just wanted to once again motivate your self-improvement. And in this sense, I will say it again about vanity and everyday life. They are the main enemies of cultivation. The flow is sticking, the person enters into a kind of habitual rhythm. Do you know what the psyche and the body will rebel against the most? Against change. To radically change the way of life for improvement comes up against a powerful barrier. And even a permanent stay in a stressful situation as a result can be "familiar" and familiar.
Therefore, we offer the psyche "to deceive." All those exercises about which we were talking, quite fit into the usual way of life. And for the proof we take such a period of time as going to bed. We use it to train attention and concentration.
As always, the exercise is simple, but extremely effective. So…
You lay down to sleep. Before you fall asleep, start thinking about something, such as an umbrella. And try to think only about him. We describe the approximate situation, as it happens.
"... Umbrella, umbrella, umbrella ... Everything is melting around ... Spring is coming ... The shoes got wet ... We should have dried them, but that didn’t work out ... I will do it tomorrow ... Yes, it's a hard day tomorrow, you have to do so much ..."
Let's say STOP! This is about the course of reasoning described, exaggerated. But you try, and with surprise or without it, you will find that trying to keep a thought on an object does not go without attention to the side, and very far. But still, you will realize: "Oh, yes, I had to think about an umbrella." And at this moment you just need to take and mentally go all the way back to the starting point.
It has been proven that this exercise is extremely useful for developing concentration and memory. It was used by many great people and famous mnemonists. And one very famous person suggested it to me. I will not name the surname either, he asked not to do it. From unwillingness to dispel their secrets and legends. The motive is a little incomprehensible, but nevertheless ...
So stay fit and improve yourself!
In previous issues, we wrote a lot about attention and concentration. It is possible that many of you have done any of these exercises and achieved some success. At least they write to us that thanks to the exercises, they began to get tired less, have more time to do, began to learn better, etc.
Well, we are very pleased. Probably, we will ask permission to publish such letters. I think that they will be a good incentive for many to regularly perform the exercises.
But we will begin to gradually move on to the next topic. IMAGINATION.
In ancient Rome, in one of the treatises on the development of human intelligence, it was said: "Our memory is our imagination." And indeed, we can only memorize, learn, and understand what we can see.
"What about abstract concepts?" - you ask. Everything is simple - even the most abstract things we see on our internal screen in the form of some specific images. For example, at one of the seminars they asked about memorizing and understanding formulas. And on a concrete example, it was proved that figurative perception, imagination allow not only to memorize, but also to better understand that it is much more effective than simple “memorization” and “grinding”.
Again, at one of the seminars I had to face a rather difficult case. Man could not raise the level of memorization beyond his already low level. The group went forward by leaps and bounds, the guy trampled on the spot. With difficulty, but managed to prove to him that the whole thing is only in a very undeveloped imagination. He could not see on his inner screen at least some bright picture. Frankly, he began to engage in the development of imagination, not so much under the weight of evidence as under the pressure of our authority. He believed in all this only when he began to succeed. But I had to tinker.
What is imagination? The flow of images. As a rule, we control this flow with varying degrees of success. There is never a situation where nothing happens in our brain. Most of the time we spend in any dreams, even if, for example, we are talking to someone about something very specific. Anyway, in parallel, the brain generates a set of images that are not relevant, so to speak, to the point. And not always we see them quite clearly.
And very often, when we want to see something very brightly and in all details, our internal screen remains in such a fogged state. Something we see better, something worse. Sometimes you can see a clear image, sometimes not. If not more often than yes, then it turns out the case described above.
But to develop the ability to control the flow of images, to develop the imagination, you can use quite simple methods. At the same time, classes will not take you too much time and will not require substantially changing the established rhythm of life.
Let's just say, we will try for ourselves to organize a sort of intellectual environment that allows us to develop many of our qualities. Well, and some exercises.
... Einstein relatively imagined his theory relatively first, while sunbathing on the beach, and only then mathematically described it. Ingenious inventors could so vividly imagine the future of the invention in a working form, that it practically, so to speak, did not differ from the drawings made later.
Imagination is also an understanding. The great physicist Enrico Fermi said that if a theoretical physicist cannot explain his most complex theory on his fingers to a primary school student, then he himself does not understand it. And to explain on the fingers means to be able to imagine it very clearly. In the form of very bright images.
That is why we will devote the next few newsletters to the development of imagination. To begin with, answer yourself the question: "How often do you memorize the dreams you see in detail?"
Probably not often. But dreams are nothing but a stream of images. So we will pay considerable attention to the technique of working with dreams.
And we will begin to develop imagination and the ability to control the flow of images in the next issue of the newsletter. Why not immediately? You just have to think a little about this, realize the importance of this process, tune in to it.
In the end, evaluate for yourself how developed or underdeveloped your imagination.
We dare to say that even with a good level of imagination, improving this quality does not hurt, and even oh, how it doesn’t hurt.
By the way, Herr Landsdorf (the character of V.Kozhevnikov's magnificent novel “Shield and Sword”) predicted a great future for intelligence to Johann Weiss because of Weiss’s imagination and artistry. And he was not mistaken. Only a veteran of German intelligence did not know that Johan Weiss was a Soviet intelligence officer Alexander Belov ...
And, at the end of this release, the announcement, the essence of which many already know. However…
Our Center for Intellectual Technologies is receiving a correspondence course in the development of memory and intelligence. We have come up with the other day two options for the course, so that anyone can choose an option that is suitable for the cost.
Recall that the course is 14 brochures-manuals with audio applications. The program of the course largely coincides with the program of a similar course of one of the educational institutions of the Soviet KGB. What gives the program:
· development of attention, concentration and imagination ;
· memory development as a function of the brain;
· drawing up your own memorization system;
· the ability to memorize any kind of information - digital, visual, verbal;
· the ability to easily memorize foreign words and forcefully learn languages;
· the ability to memorize people, their names and surnames, basic characteristics;
· the ability to work productively with texts of any complexity.
By e-mail constantly transmitted additions and a variety of new items. In addition, you can consult and ask questions. At the end of the course, you will receive a certain souvenir (let's say, very useful), which we prepare with one interesting specialist, who, by the way, kindly agreed to take part in the conduct of this newsletter.
Applications are accepted by e-mail email@example.com .
In the previous issue, we started the theme "The development of the imagination." The relevance of the topic became apparent after many seminars on memory development in general and on the study of foreign languages in particular.
Many listeners had to simply “return to the spot” attention and, if I may say so, “return the imagination”. By “returning the imagination” one should understand the approximation of the level of imagination of an adult person to the level of the imagination of the same person in childhood, or at least of his early youth.
You know, many of this is quite enough to dramatically move forward in school and work. And the memorization system immediately began to be easy, work with literature became much more productive.
A vivid example - a young man of 27 years old decided to go to study at a prestigious university. He complained that since school he did not study at all, a course in physics and mathematics seems to him impassable jungle. He came to the course in the hope that the situation would change and he would correct the situation by improving purely mechanical memorization.
At first he had to prove that the basis of the so-called purely mechanical memorization, one way or another, lies imagination, attention and association.
At first he agreed about attention and associations, but about imagination ... There was one argument: "Imagination is for children and writers!" After he began to perform tests, and at first not very well, he still realized that imagination plays a key role.
He took up this issue. And a month later I felt the strength to begin to study the course of physics and mathematics. Needless to say, he quickly learned everything, mastered it, and passed the exams brilliantly?
Imagination will be developed in three, so to speak, directions:
· control over the flow of images;
Let's start with the exercises.
Generally speaking, many readers of this newsletter are surely subscribed to other newsletters of our Center for Intelligent Technologies. And the first exercise is familiar to many. But if we are talking about imagination, then it is impossible to say about it once again, since it is the main one. Another argument for telling him once more is the fact that we have no doubt that very few people actually did it, despite the apparent simplicity.
You have already understood that this is an exercise called " IMAGE SCREEN ". Recall it.
one. To perform the exercise you need a computer or video recorder with a TV.
2 We take the Soviet or Russian film. Moreover, it was originally shot on film and then translated into video. Now many films, especially TV shows, are filmed directly on video. The difference is noticeable to the naked eye.
3 Cartoons, titrated, dubbed films are not suitable. Movies with parallel translation are also not suitable.
four. From the film we choose an excerpt with a length of 10 minutes. By the way, episodes of Yeralash or Wick are very suitable for this purpose.
five. For 10 days we look at the same passage or plot in this sequence: first, only sound, then sound and video, then only video . We emphasize that for 10 days we look, or rather, perceive, the same passage .
6 The next 10 days in the combination "sound - sound plus video - video" we watch every day a new episode or plot.
7 No special actions need to be performed, such as lip reading, plot plotting, etc. You only need to perceive the signal. The brain itself "will do everything that is necessary."
So, only twenty days ... Only half an hour a day ...
The result is usually impressive. Improving memorization. Improved understanding of complex educational material. Any information is perceived much sharper and more interesting. Memorization becomes more permanent.
Included are many, so to speak, still dormant resources.
"Just" after doing the exercise, the pictures that you see with your inner gaze while memorizing, studying the material, etc. become brighter and clearer. Images become more contrast and bright.
And the brighter the image - the greater the number of neural connections in the brain. Although the processes are interrelated and affect each other.
Sometimes people ask the question: "Will there be any porridge from images in my head?" Let's answer that we can store almost infinite number of images in our memory.
Memory works approximately like holography. After all, roughly speaking, we are not a photo album or record library. All information is stored about the same as the image on the holographic plate - in the form of fixed waves or electrical signals. And the greater the number of waves we recorded on the plate, the better the hologram.
By developing our imagination, we allow our “memory hologram” to hold more waves.
Let us quote the words of Quintillion once more: "Our memory is our imagination." It is said in ancient Rome. It will always be relevant.
Our Center for Intellectual Technologies continues to receive the correspondence course of development of memory and intelligence. The course is 14 brochures-manuals with audio applications. The program of the course largely coincides with the program of a similar course of one of the educational institutions of the Soviet KGB. What gives the program:

· the ability to memorize people, their names and surnames, basic characteristics;
· the ability to work productively with texts of any complexity.
By e-mail constantly transmitted additions and a variety of new items. In addition, you can consult and ask questions. At the end of the course you will receive a souvenir (let's say, very useful). There are two options for registration of the course, so you will not incur noticeable financial turmoil.
And we guarantee the benefit.
