Whether or not you’re a student who just headed back to school, everyone should strive to learn new things throughout their lives. Unfortunately, some people find that harder than others. That’s because some people are simply more effective learners than others.

Luckily, you can become a more effective learner as long as you focus on improving these four traits that make learning easier:

  • Be curious. Without curiosity, you’ll have no motivation to learn.
  • Become process-oriented. Don’t just focus on the end result, but on how you get there.
  • Apply what you learn. Learning for the sake of learning is great, but it’s also easier to stay interested in education if you actually apply the things you learn.
  • Retain what you learn. Letting things come in one ear and out the other is a surefire way to waste your time learning.
