Focus on learning for tomorrow

When you approach any learning endeavour, focus on learning for tomorrow. When we focus on learning for tomorrow, it changes our priorities from short-term gain, to long-term learning.

When it comes to learning vocabulary, for example, this means that you learn words for the long term, so that you won’t have to learn them again.

When I studied for the JLPT a few years ago, I focused on long-term retention of words and grammar points because I didn’t want to have to relearn anything. I wanted to learn it once and learn it right. This means I focused effort on putting things into my long-term memory, and to do that, I had an app named ‘anki’, the Japanese term for memorisation.

Focus on learning for tomorrow, and you will improve.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.


I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.


On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.
