Everyone should strive to learn something new every day. It’s also a good idea to try to learn in public, since others can benefit from what you learn. This creates a positive feedback loop amongst others.
Master How To Learn seems like an interesting reference. I think I could get some benefit from the articles there.
My general goal with learning is to:
- Intake knowledge either by reading books or online articles that are well-sourced.
- Take a moment to understand and evaluate what I just read, taking into account any cognitive biases I may have
- Distill the knowledge into a storage mechanism, like an Anki deck or this wiki.
- Look for opportunities to use the information I’ve taken in.
Learning is a constant in life. There’s always opportunities to learn more, to revise what my beliefs are, and to grow as a person. The goal is not to be right; that’s impossible. Instead my goal is to be less wrong over time and be able to do something important and worthwhile with the knowledge I gain. As such, information in this wiki changes over time.
TIL (Today I Learned) repos are repositories that people contribute to at least daily of something they learned that day.
