At KAIS, we understand that learning is much more about enriching one’s life, and not just a pathway to passing a test. Here is an excerpt from a Farnam Street article that highlights a very useful mental model for better learning, the spacing effect:
“The most important metaskill you can learn is how to learn. Learning allows you to adapt. As Darwin hinted, it’s not the strongest who survives. It’s the one who easily adapts to a changing environment. Learning how to learn is a part of a “work smarter, not harder” approach to life—one that probabilistically helps you avoid becoming irrelevant. Your time is precious, and you don’t want to waste it on something which will just be forgotten.” Curious to read on? The full article can be found here.
