Finding ways to improve scientific writing and academic productivity.

Maximize the way you think

In a recent dailyinfographic, I found a synthesis of 12 ways to maximize the way we think. Guess one.

Learning how to learn.

This maximization of the way you think involves developing your working memory, deliberate practice, time-chunking your activities, question and be curious, overcoming the forgetting curve with spaced learning and time.

When you develop the skill of learning how to learn, you increase exponentially the number of things learned per hour. But you also learn better, and this allows you to adapt in any working environment faster than others. But there’s a catch.

Alone we may reach our goals faster, but together we go farther. The most significant value in learning how to learn is in teaching it to other because learning is profoundly relational.
