    1. The crux being -

      1. Exercise, that's the best drug to get your brain running, and it is true. I have experienced the best ideas hit me when I am exercising or about to sleep, which brings me to the second point
      2. Get ample amount of sleep, it helps to build synapses, and literally updates your brain as per research.
      3. Form habits, 3 elements - cue > routine > reward
      4. There are lot many memorization techniques, like - Memory palace, graphic representation and spaced repetitions, try and see which fits best.
      5. Make chunks, or divide in modules whatever you learn, making it easier to access and use.
      6. And finally, if the task seems tough, it is because it is new. Just start, as and when the synapses are formed it becomes easier to do it again and again, and even more rewarding in the future. Kinda like building a habit.
    2. Explaining yourself to others helps you understand more.

      Very similar to the feynman technique, the only difference being he suggests to teach yourself as you are teaching a five year old kid. But yeah, teaching and getting feedback, and repeating the loop makes you learn better as well.

    3. Your errors are sometimes easier to be found by others.

      Since they don't have the same bias as you do. Meaning, they will take a more keen look at it, and hence increase the chance of finding something off. Often times when you are debugging, you do need the help of another coder, to try to explain the code to, to get a chance to catch the errors.

    1. Teaching Adults:What Every Trainer Needs to Know About Adult Learning Styles

      This paper, a project o the PACER Center, discusses learning styles specifically as they pertain to adult learners. From the nitty-gritty podagogy vs. andragogy to the best ways to train for adults, this is a good tool for those who don't know much or need a refresher on adult learning theory and training adults. I love that it is set up in a textbook style, so it's friendly but has a considerable amount of information in a variety of formats. The section, "Tips for Teaching Adults" is helpful to me as it's a series of quick reminders about how to present my information best. 8/10
