Be content with a little ...

"Beware of undertaking too much at the start. Be content with quite a little. Allow for accidents. Allow for human nature, especially your own."

- Arnold Bennett

Be content with a little learning at a time. You cannot digest the whole elephant within a meal by yourself.

Knowledge in any field is too much for our mind if we wish to know and acquire it in total instantly.

No one can do so, hence you just demand yourself too much if you were to force it upon your mind from the beginning.

Working very hard the night before the examination is only helpful if you have good understanding throughout the course of study.

Beware of undertaking too much at the start or at the end. Be content with a little learning daily.

Allow for mistakes made in your journey of learning, especially your own, learn from it and you will be a better problem solver then!

Hence give yourself time for making errors and corrections. Learning from your own mistakes, and move on...

Understand that you have human nature and simply things like dullness and tiredness will happen in your learning journey.  Take some time to rest, recharge and reset your body.  With a break and some rest, tune it back to learning mode is a pleasant experience.

Learning a skill or a subject is like growing a plant, overloading your mind by undertaking too much at one time is like watering the plant whole day, it will kill your mind like the way too much water is killing the plant.

Just be content with a little...
