Having a clear understanding of our goals makes the difference in our lives to help us feel fulfilled and deeply happy.
Without a clear vision of where we want to go, decisions we make are more random and we can struggle to feel motivated to work towards our future.
We talk about the importance of finding what's truly important to you in this video, and about how to set those goals.
Running into problems and challenges doesn't have to work against us. We can actually use those problems to grow and to learn.
In this mini series we walk through a strategy to harness the power of working through challenges to fundamentally change how we are able to think about problems.
If this is interesting and helpful to you, we dive much deeper into this and similar topics in our full podcast.

In the 40+ years we’ve spent working with people, we’ve found that one of the most common reasons for people feeling down and depressed is their inability to see a future (or a way to that future) that they genuinely would be happy in.
In this mini episode, we talk about a couple of ways to bridge the gap between where we are now and the future we want, one in which we can be happy, fulfilled, and genuinely engaged in.
We can often wonder, "what's the point?"
There are a lot of things going wrong in the world right now - climate change, wars, etc. - and school asks students to do math homework? It can feel trivial and pointless at times.
We understand how that can feel, and want to offer a perspective that we hope will help you feel motivated and create meaning in the world despite, even because of everything going on.
Having the ability to recognize patterns in school, life, and anything we learn gives us a higher level of intelligence and has a huge impact on the way we view the world.
Developing the ability to recognize patterns on a more refined level can help us be successful, and lets us see the world with a deeper understanding. When it comes to learning, pattern recognition helps us learn more thoroughly, but it also makes learning easier.
In this mini-series episode we walk through several ways to develop this skill and help you become better at recognizing patterns.
Why have we created the Learn-To-Learn podcast the way the have?
We fundamentally believe in giving actionable how-to's instead of simply providing fleeting inspiration. Without understanding how to do something, the inspiration ultimately fades, while we want to help you create lasting results.
In this mini-series episode we walk you through why we've created this podcast, and we hope you'll join us and try out our other podcast episodes!
Habits are crucial to how we engage with the world, and they ultimately dictate how easily and successfully we'll be able to reach our goals.
Do you find it difficult to work through challenging projects? Or procrastinate studying? Or do you stop for a moment after finishing a successful project to recognize how that's helping you reach your goals?
Every single one of our habits, both external and even the habits of how we think about things, can help us reach our goals if they are aligned.
In this mini episode we go over some strategies to help identify existing internal and external habits, which is the first step in creating habits that will help us.
If this is helpful to you, we'll be releasing several full-length podcasts on habits in the upcoming weeks - it's that important. You can keep an eye out for those podcasts on our website, and take a look at all of our past episodes as well.
We are often taught that we are visual learners, or auditory learners, maybe kinesthetic learners. While we may have preferences, that's just another way to limit our ability to learn.
Here at Learn-to-Learn we believe that everyone has the capacity to learn, and learn well. In this mini series episode we cover some strategies to help you feel confident in your ability to be an amazing learner.
