Learning How To Learn

  • Capture all of your ideas, such as in a notebook, to get more of them.
  • Strive for good design; it really works better.
  • The more senses you engage in a task with, the more involved and focused your brain will be. Fiddling, music, walking, etc.
  • Step away from the keyboard from time to time to solve hard problems.
  • Change your viewpoint to solve the problem: look at it in reverse or exaggerate it.
  • Watch for outliers: rarely doesn’t mean never.
  • Be comfortable with uncertainty.
  • Trust ink over memory; every mental read is a write.
