What makes a good learner?

Learning is one of the greatest parts in our life when we are in school days, and even after the graduation we step into society, we still need to learn new knowledge to adapt to the work life. As everyone knows, learning is critical way to stay open-minded and keep our minds healthy as we grow older.

And it is precondition for a good learner to be incredulous of authority and keep doubting spirit.

For example, if one plan to read three chapters of a book within one day then just does it, he or she does not need to care how much time it will cost. As long as one can memorize and absorb the new knowledge, he or she should get rid of distractions like notebook and cell phone and focus our attention on learning goals until we finish it no matter how much the time it would spend.

The third creed is to repeat, repeat, and repeat. This one can not get enough attention by many...
