How to find and evaluate sources of knowledge
Recovery is a must for learning. Taking time off does not mean more brain stimulation like TV or video games. It means just closing your eyes and doing nothing.
Surprisingly, that is when the brain gets to work, cementing what you have learned.

Cardiovascular exercise makes us better learners, triggering dopamine and epinephrine in our brains, providing us with a natural memory boost.
Most learning techniques with lots of theory and colorful infographics do not assist in making the information stick in our minds.
There is a need for ‘desirable difficulties’ which exercise our minds and translate into long-term retention of knowledge.
Learning a new skill can be tough. Those of us trying to master a new language, learn a musical instrument, or take an online course, will find that when the initial enthusiasm dries up, things move at a snail’s pace.

The technique has an in-built momentary confusion once you switch back and forth, resulting in a better long-term recall of the material.
.. or a Q&A session primes the brain to absorb the information afterward, and failing to answer it initially is part of the game.
The brain needs to know that it doesn’t know.
Continuously quizzing yourself, something called ‘retrieval practice’ jogs the memory and builds stronger traces. The harder the retrieval is, the stronger the memory formation.
Teaching others is an excellent way to gain in-depth knowledge of a subject.
Our memory is contextually sensitive, making our surroundings affect its functioning.
Studies show that changing the place of learning can help retain and recall the topics better.
The road to success is always under construction.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
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.
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!
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.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
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.
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!
