    How to Memorize Any Skill/Technique/Repetition

    How to Memorize Any Skill/Technique/Repetition

    Show notes Outline:

    Everyone only has 24 hours in a day
    What you do with that is up to you. Can you spend all 24h ours studying for something? Memorizing something?
    - Space out your studying - hence the name space repetition
    -leverages something called spacing effect
    -describes how brains learn more effectively when we spread out the information we are learning over time
    -anything related to analysis and synthesis will need to be spaced out to allow neural adaptions and connections to melt and soak up

    -Think about building a brick wall. If you stack up the bricks too quickly without letting the mortar solidify in each layer, it’s not going to be a good wall.

    -Something called the Forgetting Curve which the Herman Ebbinghaus first systematize in the 1880s.

    -Memories work like a muscle. The more you recall it. The more you demand the importance of keeping it in the brain

    -Like a muscle, we need to break down the memory. We have to let the memory hit a point where we ALMOST forget it. This forces us to the next topic

    -RETREVIAL. By waiting until we are at the cusp of the information we want to remember, we force our brain to work harder to retrreive it. Think of this as progressive overloading concept where we reintroduce a stimulus to the brain.

    -First repetition on day t1
    -Second reptition on Day 3
    -Third on Day 8
    - Fourth on Day 15

    You can even do it every week. Or every week an a half. Progressively overloading the memory stimulus.

    Who is No BS Watchmaker & Why is He Annonymous

    In this episode, I go over why I am anonymous and why I prefer to keep my identity away from the masses. In this industry, if they know your identity, you’re limited to the amount of information you can learn. LINKS:
