How to use spaced repetition for learning

Space repetition is a great way to learn new things.

It’s pretty simple.

Let’s say you’re learning some new skill. You may read a few resources or sit a course and take some notes.

With spaced repetition you would set a reminder, say a week later, to go back over the notes again.

This space between repeating the learning gives your brain time to digest the information, link it to other bits of information and make sense of it. It means that when you revisit the information again you can gain deeper learning.

The human brain is remarkable and this techniques really helps me to learn deeper.

Try using Evernote to store the note and then set a reminder on it. Or use a calendar to remind you to revisit the learning.

When I apply this technique to learning, I get astonishing results.

Until next time.
