How to create a study routine

Maintaining a steady study pace can be very challenging, especially when looking to improve your knowledge and technical abilities for the job market. There are always uncertainties about where to start, what to prioritize and how to fit a study routine in your life.

 

Unfortunately, we don’t have Hermione’s time-turner to help us reconcile learning with our well-deserved rest. However, to help, we have some tips for planning, organization and focus. And all this is suitable for any field, check it out:

 

Start by setting a goal

What do you want to learn? How much time do you have to learn about this new topic? These are two key questions before you start defining your study routine. To avoid great frustration, it is worth researching what you want to learn, the qualifications that a certain role asks for and/or what you need to know to reach a new level in your career. This information will help you focus on your studies and keep you motivated.

And don’t forget to make a realistic plan; that is, don’t fill your week with hours dedicated to studying only. Look carefully at the time taken by your current activities and don’t forget that you need time to rest and have fun. Respecting your rhythm and ensuring you have time for relaxation is also part of the process!

 

Create “achievable” goals

When it comes to studying or perming long term tasks, seeing your progress is very important to stay energized, right?

So, after listing what you want to learn, it’s time to put your goals on paper, because they are what will help track your progress. These goals should break down your learning process into small pieces to create small milestones that can be achieved more quickly. This will help keep you motivated and ensure a more sustainable and far less frustrating learning process.

When tracking your progress, you can use the example of online course platforms, which show how much of a given course you have already completed. One tool that can help in creating goals and tracking them is Trello, a very intuitive and free management app.

 

Start studying!

Now that you know how to create your study routine, it’s time to get your down to business!

Some online learning platforms we suggest are: Alura, Udemy, Domestika, Google Digital Studio and Coursera. However, it is worth remembering: do not limit yourself to online courses. You can learn a lot from other content formats like books, articles, podcasts, documentaries, and videos.

Regardless of your favorite format, after learning new things, it’s worth taking a little time to put your knowledge into practice — this is a good way to retain what you’ve learned. You can do this by creating a project of your own or by attending events that encourage putting knowledge into practice, such as workshops or hackathon events.

 

Be persistent, ask for help and respect your own rhythm

Learning something new is not always easy. The important thing is to not give up and to not be scared of asking for help. Communities, forums, and even LinkedIn connections can hel with questions that Google is not able to answer. Surely others have asked the same question at some point and can help.

We know that there is no magical formula for learning (but we wish there was, don’t we?). Therefore, it may be necessary to revise your planning. After all, during the process, you may find that a subject is more complicated than it seemed, or suddenly it may not be exactly what you needed to learn at that time. And it’s okay to go back a few steps if that’s going to help you move forward in the future, right?

Remember: you don’t have to learn at breakneck speed; everyone has their own pace. Take advantage of this initial moment to create a solid foundation, as it will make all the difference when you move on to more complex themes.
