I’ve spent three hours every day for the past six months figuring out how learning works.
It all began with an innocent question, “How do we actually learn things?” When I asked around, I realized people don’t like talking about how we learn much. It’s a taboo subject of sorts; you’re somehow supposed to know that. So I had to think for myself.
As a result, I’ve built a process that helps me learn, understand, and remember things I’m interested in. It’s great for many reasons, but here’s the most surprising one. I’ve developed enormous self-confidence. I’m no longer afraid when I don’t understand something because I know I’ll figure it out. And I know that because I’ve got a process that works.
Yesterday, I published a distilled version of everything I’ve learned so that you can try it out. It’s a bit long to send over email, so here’s the link.
If you’re interested, give it a shot.
