This Week's Reading List 📚
Brutal Truth About Reading: If You Don’t Take
Notes Right, You’ll Forget Nearly
Everything by Michael Simmons
The benefits of public note-taking are (1)
Future Value for self and other people. Leaving
notes with context helps you remember the info in
the future. You and other people can also search and
connect the dots later and (2) Deeper Understanding.
Knowing that your notes could be viewed by others
works as a forcing function to let you process the
information deeply. Someone's trash is someone
else's treasure. The future is learning in public
I Stay Motivated Even When Progress Seems
Slow by Ev Chapman (2min)
The hardest thing about incremental progress is that
it’s so hard to see. You need to (1) Trust The
Process: Most of the time we just quit way too
early, (2) Find An Anchor Point: Measure
yourself against that landmark, and (3) Find
The Joy: Find joy in the daily activities that get
you to your goal and you’ll find momentum on your
side. In the end, the important thing is just don’t
give up. The surefire way to reach any of your goals
is to just keep going.
#750: The Surprising Benefits of
Forgetting by Brett McKay &
Scott Small (27min)
Forgetting resurfaces important information. If you
remember everything, it makes it harder to
generalize, abstract, and/or filter information. One
of the reasons why we sleep is to forget. By
forgetting, we can be more creative because you will
see unexpected connections among key ideas, and
that's why most creative types seem to function best
in the morning.
See you next week ;)
