Chigusa: Okay, Peter, why the plane of all places? Have you been flying recently?
Peter: I was, and you know, the plane is an interesting place. Actually very motivating.
Chigusa: Really, why?
Peter: Picture this, Chigusa. You’re on a plane.
Chigusa: Okay.
Peter: You’re sitting in your seat. The seat belt sign has just come off. You stand up. What do you see?
Chigusa: Hmm, people sleeping, eating watching TV... or going to the bathroom.
Peter: Chigusa, think about it, what you see... is actually a snapshot of what most people do in their free time. Eating. Sleeping, Watching TV. And sitting in the bathroom.
Chigusa: Ah, that’s so true! But, what’s so motivational about that?
Peter: Well, if you take a closer look, there’s always 1 or 2 people who are hard at work. Who are focused on something. I find that motivational.
Chigusa: Ah, so while 99% of the people are sleeping or eating...
Peter: ...there’s that hyperproductive few... that are hard at work. I love that.
Chigusa: And they’re working despite the fact that they’re in a cramped, crowded space.
Peter: So, there powerful 3 lessons here. 3 habits that language learners can apply. Ready for the first one?
Chigusa: The first one is... Adjust to your environment.
Peter: Listeners, you’ll agree here, the plane is NOT an ideal place to learn language.
Chigusa: It’s dark, it’s cramped. You might have a crying baby next to you.
Peter: But the point is, there’s never a perfect time or place to learn.
Chigusa: Trains get crowded. You can’t do much in your car.
Peter: Even in your own home, you can get distracted by the TV.
Chigusa: Some days you’ll be sick. You’ll be tired. You’ll have dinner plans.
Peter: So if you can accept this, you’ll stop waiting for “perfect” opportunities.
Chigusa: And you’ll make the best of your environment.
Peter: For example, if you’re on the train, you’re standing and can’t focus...
Chigusa: ...then use the Innovative Language 101 App.
Peter: Listen to the audio lessons. Or, do the word of the day. Check the email.
Chigusa: Yeah, these are quick and painless ways to learn... anywhere.
Peter: The point is... you have adjust to your environment and make the best of it.
Chigusa: So, listeners, take a look at your own day and see where your time goes.
Peter: Is there any environment where you feel like you can’t learn?
Chigusa: See how you can adjust to it.
Peter: Ok next up...
Chigusa: Two: Take advantage of your limited time
Peter: So, my last flight was 7 hours long. When I fly, that time usually means movie time! Chigusa, what about you?
Chigusa: For me, it’s definitely movie time and sleep time.
Peter: What about commuting? When you take the train?
Chigusa: I guess that’s wasted time. I stare at my iPhone or listen to music.
Peter; So, I ask about time because... the number one reason why most people don’t learn a language...
Chigusa: ...ah, it’s lack of time. Yeah, we’ve surveyed tons of learners over the years.
Peter: Every year, the answer’s the same. No time. But if you’re on the train for 30 minutes...
Chigusa: Yeah, you kind of DO have time. So, what should you do?
Peter: If you’re commuting for 30 minutes, ask yourself:
Chigusa: “How can I put these next 30 minutes to use?”
Peter: If you finish work at 7PM and spend an hour doing nothing....
Chigusa: ...Ask yourself “what can I do in the next hour that will help me with my goals?”
Peter: You don’t have to use all 30 minutes or the full hour...
Chigusa: ...but you can definitely fit in a 5 minute lesson...
Peter: ...and take steps towards your goal. Okay, finally, you need the third habit:
Chigusa: Three: Have an on-and-off mindset.
Peter: So, Chigusa, I like to chat with the hyperproductive people I see on flights. Just to learn about their work-style. How they’re able to get things done on the plane.
Chigusa: And they’re not too busy to talk to you?
Peter: Well, sometimes they’re willing to talk! They usually say the same thing: “Forget the plane. Don’t wait. Start.”
Chigusa: Like, they just go into work mode without thinking about it?
Peter: Exactly. Like they just flipped a switch.
Chigusa: So listeners, as soon as you know what to do in the next 30 minutes...
Peter: ...Flip the switch. Dive into it. Don’t spend time thinking about it.
Chigusa: Yeah, don’t say “I’ll do it in 5 minutes.”
Peter: Don’t say “it’s 5:55, I’ll start at 6.” Stop thinking and get to work.
Chigusa: And when you’re done with a lesson?
Peter: Reward yourself... and more importantly, flip the switch off. Stop thinking about language. Walk away, You’re done.
Chigusa: So listeners, remember — Adjust to your environment, Take advantage of your limited time...
Peter: ....And Have an on-and-off mindset. And remember...
