* How to learn better?


I used to consider myself good at learning things until I came across the zettelkasten method. It's interesting that our education system is all about learning, but there are no classes offered on learning how to learn. So, it shouldn't be surprising if I say that Most people are bad at learning. Here are some of the top reasons why that is the case.

In my reading and research, I have come across great sources such as How to Take Smart Notes - S├Ânke Ahrens, Andy Matuschak's notes and a bunch of other resources on the subject. I decided to apply the same methodology to my learning process. This is a blatant imitation of their learnings, mostly rephrased by me to remain true to the spirit of the zettelkasten.
