Are You as Smart as You Think?

Smart people often overestimate their intelligence, thinking they are superior to others in their field of study or employment. However, psychologists have found that this isn’t the case at all. Smart people often lack self-awareness, meaning they don’t realize how smart they truly are.

Because of this, many successful people receive less praise than they deserve for their work because others assume that someone that intelligent wouldn’t need help from others. Be careful not to fall into this trap!

Keep Learning

Even if you think your brain is fit enough to stand on its own, there’s always room for improvement. Learning doesn’t just build up our brains; it also keeps us from being set in our ways. Of course, it can be hard to learn new things as we get older—but not if we know how to handle it. Here are some tips for incorporating lifelong learning into your life without struggling with information overload.

Change Your Thinking Patterns

If you’re having trouble with a particular subject, first try to change your way of thinking about it. This may be easier said than done, but think of it like learning a foreign language. If someone speaks English in an accent that you don’t understand (say, if they pronounce begonia as bogonia), your brain will automatically tune them out. Instead of getting frustrated, simply focus on hearing and understanding what they say with their correct pronunciation.

Outsource Work, Reduce Stress

Do you have some work that you’d like to have done more quickly, but don’t have time for? That’s when you can turn to an outsourcer. These companies take on all kinds of tasks, big and small, and deliver high-quality results. This extra hand can help reduce your stress level and even free up some time in your schedule for other things that need your attention. In short, outsourcers make everything easier!

Try the Pomodoro Technique

The Pomodoro Technique helps to become more productive at work by forcing you to focus on one task for a set amount of time before taking a break. It’s been around since Francesco Cirillo came up with it in 1985, but recent studies show that it can really help your brain concentrate and become more effective at work. Try it out today!

Get Started with Autofocus

Being smart means you have to keep up with your work, school, and other responsibilities—all while keeping your mind sharp. Autofocus keeps you on track so you don’t forget anything. Take a 5-minute break every hour or two by looking away from your screen and relaxing for a bit.
