Learning how to learn

Making small changes can go a long way. Be it habit formation or learning. Chunking is breaking large concepts, data etc into small bite sized information . Which may be logically related and can be easily consumed.

When you encounter something new and important, first reaction of our mind can be to memorise it. We need to consciously move from rote learning to understanding the concept. If you understand something it stays with you.

Revisiting the book or notes will give you a false sense of knowledge. When you scan over the text/data you get the false sense of security where you know the general structure but miss out on nooks and crannies. Instead, test what you have learnt. Attempt questions and take questions and find out what you know. Recall is better than revisiting. Another small habit to accommodate is to reduce highlighting and increase writing understanding by writing summary notes.

Slogging all nighters might be hampering you more than you know. Sleep is a greatly under-appreciated superpower we all have. Benefits ranges from mental health, physical health and also learning. When we sleep thoughts get consolidated. Brain does the clean up and keeps what it needs. Spaced repetition any one? Sleep is essential for forming long term memories.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

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!

Shankul Varada

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.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

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.

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!

Jamyson Haug

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