Eliminate Distractions. Hide yourself away from friends and fun. This includes non-essential electronics.
Be Strategic. Identify the high payoff items in what you’re doing. Do them first.
Take Breaks. Set a timer and work in 30 to 45 minute bursts with short breaks in between to recharge your brain. Don’t like breaks? Take them anyway. They help! (Caveat: NOT for people with ADHD.)
Ask questions. Ask yourself tough, open-ended questions about what you are learning. Answer the questions.
