Making Effective Choices in the Study Process (MP3 download)

By Edwin A. Locke

 

In this highly useful lecture, Dr. Locke applies Ayn Rand's theory of volition to the process of study. The aspects of efficient studying that he addresses include:

 
1) the choice of what to study;

2) the choice of what goals to set (including their degree of specificity and difficulty);

3) the choice of what factors to consider when choosing goals;

4) the decision to commit oneself to one's goals;

5) the resolution of conflicts between one's study goals and other values; and

6) the actions taken to overcome failures to achieve one's goals.
