The Spacing Effect: Forgetting Makes It Stick

I love this simple idea about learning: information sticks better if you learn it in smaller chunks over time and forget a little bit in between.

It’s the exact opposite of cramming like we did in college. πŸ˜†

As it turns out, forgetting the information for a while helps makes it stick for longer if you revisit it later. 🀯. It may seem odd, but it make sense.

If you force your brain to bring back knowledge it’s starting to forget, then it puts a sticker to remind itself it shouldn’t forget.

This same idea came up here a few months ago in a different post. And seeing it again now, fittingly enough, really solidifies the concept for me. πŸ™ƒ
