📚 3 Good Articles for You


Lifelong Learning
by FS Blog (5 min)
Lifelong learning is an important skill to have and requires the ability to reflect on mistakes, read regularly, and test your understanding. Reading is the foundation of indirect learning and reflection helps make experiences more concrete. Confucius said that wisdom can be learned through reflection, imitation, and experience. Learning from our own mistakes and the mistakes of others are the primary ways we learn. To pursue lifelong learning, read regularly and learn how to read for understanding. Reflect on experiences and test your understanding by demonstrating you can teach it in simple terms.

The Brutal Truth About Reading: If You Don’t Take Notes Right, You’ll Forget Nearly Everything
by Michael Simmons (24 min)
Reading is an important skill, but if you don't take notes correctly, you'll forget nearly everything. To make sure you remember what you read, take public notes and focus on Titanium Knowledge. This will help you remember more and create an asset that will benefit you for decades. Challenges such as impostor's syndrome, tool lock-in, and time commitment can make the transition to public notes difficult, but it is worth it in the long run.
