When learning, focus on recall

2021-01-15

You only know something when you can recall it.

There are three stages for memory:

Imagine a library. Intake is when the library orders a new book. Storage is when the library shelves it. But if you can't find the book, it's useless.

Recall is why a skill seems easy during a lesson, but difficult when you try it on your own. The lesson didn't ask your brain to retrieve anything.
