Momentum

Law of Inertia: Objects at rest tend to stay at rest; in motion stay in motion.

Rockets use more fuel during the first few minutes of flight than the rest of the trip. The hard part is getting off the ground.

  • Keep in mind that the task is compulsory, it has to be done, so if you don't start, how would it be done?
  • Have a glass of water and get started.
  • Focus for 20 minutes, and by this period you'll dive into the task.

Starting step is always hard but once started, we gain momentum.

Study in Chunks

  • Study for 60 minutes and then have a break of 10 minutes.
  • Don't use phone in the break, walk and have a glass of water instead.
  • A light walk will help you refresh your mind and focus.
  • Our brain is sensitive to dehydration, so regular water intake is a must.
  • Continue for 2-3 study sessions.

Parkinson's Law

Work expands to the time available for its completion.

Example: If we have to finish a report in two weeks, we will do it as demanded and present a finished, well-researched report by the end of two weeks. The interesting part is that if we had only three days to make that report, we would still do it. The fact that it took two weeks was just a mental deadline.

Too much time = Waste of time

Less time = Effective use of time

Application

  • Time log your work using a time-tracking app or just log it in your mind.
  • Have a clear vision for the task, vague ideas make you set long deadlines.
  • Set a deadline that makes you work effectively without wasting any time or being unable to finish in time.

Allot a practical but relatively less time to a task for maximum work efficiency.

The Feynman Technique

Richard Feynman was a Nobel prize-winning physicist. His real superpower, however, was his ability to explain complicated subjects to others in simple terms.

The Feynman Technique is a method of learning that unleashes your potential and forces you to develop a deep understanding. This method emphasizes that learning should be an active process of true comprehension gained through research, writing, explaining, and refining.

If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.

Apply The Technique

  • Choose a concept to learn and do an active reading of the concept from your preferred source material.
  • Write about the concept from your interpretation on paper and explain it as simply as you can, as if you were teaching it to someone, actually yourself.
  • Return to the source material where you get stuck and fill the gaps in your knowledge.
  • Reflect on, simplify and streamline your explanations, further clarifying the topic until it seems obvious.

Curator's Sayings

Studying with a compromise of our mental and physical health isn't moral, neither will it help us in long term. Also, better health gives enhanced capabilities to learn.

Hence, sleep well, eat well, drink lots of water and exercise regularly. Live a wholesome life.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
