How to Chunk Information

Darryl Bachmeier Jun 16, 2020 Strategy

Chunked information has always been confirmed as the most convenient way of memorizing information for easier understanding. Most of the information on the things we use today are chunked, but maybe we are too busy to notice. Let’s take the phone numbers we use today for example, (depending on your location), some phone numbers are arranged initially as “08078278001,” but they are being chucked into “0807-8278-001” to make it easier to recall. Let’s take another example; maybe you are meant to remember countries like Nigeria, Ghana, America, England, Germany, and New Zealand. This information can also be chunked into N.G.A.E.G.N., with each latter representing each country. This method helps you to remember those countries at any given time easily. There is some other evidence of information chunking around us, they include: Our credit/debit cards, it is chunked into three or four groups. Names of agencies, organizations, e.t.c. For example, the...

Everyone has one time or the other experienced this unexplainable pull and attraction to another person they find admirable, alluring and charming. These are people that we look up to and sometimes refer to as role models. A popular example of some of the most admired people on earth include former FLOTUS Michelle Obama, Princess Diana, Nelson Mandela or Bill Gates.

When asked to give reasons why they admire these charming personalities the most, people blank out for seconds and the next thing you may hear is, ‘There is just something about him/her’. Most never come to the realization that the word they are looking for is ‘charisma’. In truth, looking at it from the surface of things, charisma as a concept of human nature seems unquantifiable,...

Body Language

Why is it important to communicate non-verbally along with verbal? Why do we need to understand the body language of others more than their words? Why do people with high grades and a strong portfolio still get rejected for jobs? The answer to all these questions is that “Actions speak louder than words”. You speak, so do your gestures. It won’t be any wrong to say that your gestures speak more than you do. Yes, here we are talking about body language. Just like you speak a specific language to communicate your thoughts to the world, similarly, your body speaks your inner truths by communicating through your specific body language. Communication is not only verbal or vocal, for communication to be effective and precise human beings use non-verbal communication along with their verbal speech articulation. This non-verbal communication that plays the role of a “cherry on top” is the body...

Being Busy vs. Doing Nothing

Darryl Bachmeier Jun 14, 2020 Productivity

How do you feel when an appointment gets canceled? Unsettled at how you are going to spend all this free time and afraid of doing something unproductive? You may be spending a lot of time on tasks with little value and destroying yourself by the time you reach your major tasks. Even if it sounds like a cliche, there is a difference between being productive and being busy. Just think. You’ve spent your entire day cooped up like a chicken in front of your computer, and when you’re about to check off tasks, your work seems insignificant. Ask yourself. Why are you always busy? To prove that you possess the professional work ethic needed to take you further in your career? To be recognized as a serious worker? However, the busier you keep yourself, the more inhibited the quality of your work or your creative skills are. Isn’t that what...

Darryl Bachmeier Jun 13, 2020 Life

The word ‘praise’ also interchangeably used with the word ‘reward’ is a type of social engagement often practised to indicate encouragement, approval, and appreciation. It is demonstrated by verbal communication, for example through motivational phrases of speech, as well as by non-verbal communication such as a pat on the back, or a gold star for children. When it comes to children, the impacts of rewarding them for their actions can significantly enhance positive behaviours amongst them. Raising happy, confident, and emotionally stable individuals is something all parents should aim to achieve. To accomplish this, the physical development of a child should be stimulated alongside progress in their emotional wellbeing. Children urge the need to be loved and given attention to and are driven by rewards. Praise itself is a token of gratitude that children value and cherish; they realise the simple rule of life that righteousness is an acceptable social...
