I have a much broader perspective of life.I simply don’t measure what I do, how much I do and how often I do. I have certain interests and what I truly care is to learn as much as I can in those ares. I am a perpetual researcher. I skim forums (Reddit) or other wise, watch videos, different Quora answers and make notes on my google drive file. I have separate file for each genre.

I am a writer and I ponder over many topics, latest research. Even when I am traveling, I carry my internet dongle (to save battery) and continue research.

I apply the known research models of learning like ‘Interleaved learning’ as well as ‘Spaced learning’. Mixing topics has shown to increase retention by as much as 76%.

A surprise final test occurred one day or one month later. The result? When the test was one day later, scores were 25 percent better for problems trained with interleaving; at one month later, the interleaving advantage grew to 76 percent.

That is phenomenal.

There is a body of research that suggests that spacing learning over time helps people learn more quickly and remember better. It has been found to be effective in various domains, from sales training to language learning to medicine (Caple, 1997; Castel, Logan, Haber, & Viehman, 2012; Grote, 1995; Kerfoot et al., 2007; Lambert, 2009; Landauer & Ross, 1977; Lehmann-Willenbrock & Kauffeld, 2010; Toppino & Cohen, 2010).

I use pedagogical methods for my students as well as for me itself.

Writing on Quora helps me retain more information over the time! Yes sharing is indeed caring.

Teaching others is the best way to learn.

How To Retain 90% Of Everything You Learn

90% of what they learn when they teach someone else/use immediately.
75% of what they learn when they practice what they learned.
50% of what they learn when engaged in a group discussion.
30% of what they learn when they see a demonstration.
20% of what they learn from audio-visual.
10% of what they learn when they’ve learned from reading.
5% of what they learn when they’ve learned from lecture.

The Protégé Effect

Thus learn more and more importantly share it with others. Remember if others don’t share what they learn, they too are going to loose 90% of it.
