  • Spaced Repetition
    • We remember things best
      • Right before we forget them
      • When we are forced to recall
  • Not: Consume, Consume, Consume—Go Do
  • Rather: Consume, Recall; Consume, Recite; Consume, Elaborate—Go Do
  • The most effortful learners become experts (violinist example)
