#1 Choosing Fun

Results and work are important, but also surface level fun is important as well. Sometimes it's difficult to know why achievement is important to us, so maybe at times we should just have fun.

Yes, sometimes need to sit down and get the work done but what is ife if not for random little magical moments?

#1 Choosing Fun

Example: You may fell pressured to listen to podcasts any time you are driving or cooking as if listening to music instead would just be a waste of time.

You should listen to podcasts when you want to, not because you fell like you have to. Listening to music can be as productive as listening to podcasts. 

REST AND FUN ARE PRODUCTIVE.

So, have fun. Don't always think about being productive, it will overwhelm you. Know that rest and fun are also productive .

The Essay Memorization Technique

There are two stages to this method:

  • The creation stage: the objective is to generate high quality essay plans for every possible title that you could receive in an exam.
  • The memorization stage: transfer all of these essay plans to memory by methodically using active recall, spaced repetition, spider diagrams, and flashcards.

Benefits of this technique: you will be able to memorize so many essay plans by the time your exam is due, that a lot of these will come up at the exam anyway (or similar ones, so you'll have the possibility to compile bits of the memorized information to generate great essays from scratch).
