Make sure your learning project involves something you do or not just something you learn.
Transfer is the ability to apply and use what you learn.
Research showed several times the fact that much of what we set out to learn doesn’t actually transfer to the situations we need it. This applies to school, but also to your own learning efforts.
Practice loops are useful as a concept to think about learning any skill. A practice loop is an activity or group of activities you repeat over and over again while learning something.
Learning styles (visual, auditory etc.) have actually little impact on our ability to learn.
The best way to learn depends on what you’re trying to learn in the first place. The key is to interact with the information. Using multiple sources will help you with this. Don't stick to books alone—gather relevant videos, podcasts, movies, and blogs as well.
One practice of having a good life is to have regular conversations with people smarter than you or at least a bit ahead in some areas of life you care about.
