RELATED IDEAS

When you explain and describe an idea in your own words, you consciously associate what you want to learn with what you've already learned.

Why it works: It encodes information into your long-term memory more effectively. The more you connect new knowledge to what you already know, the better because it generates more cues that help you retrieve the knowledge.

How to apply it: Ask yourself questions like "How can I apply this to my own life?" and "In what situations would this be useful?"
