Self Improvement

Ryan Holiday

Whatever problem you’re struggling with is probably addressed in some book somewhere written by someone a lot smarter than you."

Our memory is made up of 3 components

...in terms of reading retention:

  • Impression
  • Association
  • Repetition
When you’re impressed by something, you'll remember it easier

This could mean a phrase or quote that catches you off guard or changes the way you think about a certain topic. Or an interesting fact that you’ll want to save for later on.

Most important step for long-term memorization: repetition
Without re-engaging with the material that you’ve read, you’ll not be able to remember and apply any of that knowledge. So you need to have a method for taking and organizing notes around key parts you want to revisit later on.
Reading with intention engages all of the parts of memory

It means that you have a specific goal at hand, you want to connect what you’re reading to other information and that it is something you’re invested in and will come back to again and again.
