He did not eat in the afternoon from that age. But he had a keen interest in learning and study. Every day he would put a fistful of sand in his hand and make the determination that he would gain knowledge and he would learn from his senior teachers and preceptor, to the amount of the grains of sand in his hand. He set up his vow of truth, that he would learn and have effort and diligence in learning to a high level. This was why the Buddha bestowed on him the title of being foremost in being eager to learn."

    From this videoconference talk from 11 January 2019, Ajahn Anan discusses training, self-giving, and discipline.

We can sit meditation, we can practice training the mind, and the mind is spacious and serene. Because we have reduced and given up our selfishness. Self-sacrifice is something that destroys selfishness. It destroys the sense of self, and ends this holding onto ‘this is me’ and ‘this is mine’."
