EP056: Find Success In The NAVY With Bluejacketeer – With Jonny Coreson

Change Your POV Podcast

SUMMARY: Just ask Jonny Coreson and he will be the first to tell you that life and business are just like a game of Jenga! If you pull the wrong block or making the wrong business decision it can prove catastrophic. Likewise, if you manage to get that block out ok there is always a chance you could place it incorrectly or implement a business strategy poorly, same results… blocks all over the place. In this episode, Jonny teaches us that just like in Jenga it is just as important in life and in business that we pick up the pieces, rebuild, and keep playing! Failures in life are opportunities if you see them and treat them as such! IN THIS PARTICULAR EPISODE YOU WILL LEARN: Jonny is a Co-Founder of an online comprehensive training program specifically designed to provide US Navy Sailors with a placement exam study platform that they can take anywhere! Bluejacketeer is a system specifically designed by Sailors to help Sailors prepare for the Navy-wide Advancement Exam. This system leverages the benefits of a learning technique known as Spaced Repetition (SR). This learning technique is typically used by individuals who need to efficiently learn a massive amount of information. SR is most commonly used to acquire new languages and was built into the very fabric of companies like Duolingo, Pimsleur, and of course Anki. The study environment Jonny and his team created helps you retain information in your long-term memory using the Spacing Effect. According to Wikipedia, the definition of the Spacing Effect is: “The phenomenon whereby animals (including humans) more easily remember or learn items when they are studied a few times spaced over a long time span (spaced presentation) rather than repeatedly studied in a short span of time (massed presentation)”. Simply put, the longer you can wait to see a question again and still answer it correctly, the better. Bluejacketeer was built behind the idea of using Spaced Repetition and the Spacing Effect as the key advantage to remembering massive amounts of information pertaining to the advancement exam. I sure wish I had something like this in the ARMY!! LINKS AND RESOURCES MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Bluejacketeer Begin Your Journey Towards Promotion Today!
