Every task has a certain Activation Energy (AE), where you initiate certain steps in order to start a task.
Reducing the Activation Energy of new habits you want to form will make it is easier to get started.
If you want to exercise, have your shoes and weights ready the previous night.
A memory chunk is a solid connection in your mind that relates various bits and pieces of information.
Focus on the concept you want to form a chunk of. Write down the basic ideas of what the concept is all about. Build up from these fundamentals to finally create a chunk.
Just forming chunks is not sufficient. You have to maintain them. The more you look after the chunks, the longer they last.
While reviewing material, recall it instead of just reading it passively. Try and recall in a different setting than where you studied it.
Whenever you face a problem, take a break. Sleep. Clean your room. Do anything except work on the problem.
This takes your brain into its “diffuse mode” — this mode works on the things you have been focusing on in the background. Come back to the problem later.
A procrastinator is a person who has a HABIT of getting distracted by things.
Break this habit by eliminating distractions. Another option is the Cue-Routine where you take notice what you do in response to certain distracting cues ,and then make sure to resist it.
Parkinson’s second law: Work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion.
Setting a micro deadline for daily tasks holds your brain accountable to the tick of the clock.
The #1 thing you need to do to correctly memorize concepts is understand them. To successfully understand something, visualizing it is key.
Metaphors will help you understand and recall more easily.
You take something obvious from your memory, and see how it is related to the new concept you are trying to learn.
People learn when they are self-motivated, not when someone comes in front of them for four hours a week, and tells something to them.
Start learning what you want, since that is what actually matters — that is what you must care about.
Transfer learning is the ability to take what you learn in one domain and apply it to a new skill.
Learn to apply old skills to new skills and vice versa.
Lack of sleep affects memory and recall.
Sleep helps your brain get into the diffuse mode and thus gets creative ideas about your ongoing projects cooking.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
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.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
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!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
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!
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.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
