The last few newsletters have been discussing ways to put development content to work for you. If you missed them, can read'em here.
They talked about the importance of:
1. Taking Notes
2. Retrieving or calling back information you have learned
Step 3 is to take action on the advice, which is what...
I’ve been M.I.A.
It’s been over a month since the last time I posted anything.
It wasn’t because I got busy or forgot about you guys.
It was to prove a point
Yes, that’s right, to prove a point!
That point is related to the new topic I had started, of which I made three posts...

As an author for over a decade, I’ve been writing about memory improvement for years.
In that time, I’ve come across many people with many memory...
Last week I introduced the concept of retrieval to improve memory. Retrieval is the act of recalling information from memory instead of looking at your notes or material again. If you missed the post, catch it here.
Studies show retrieval is the most effective memory technique. Not only is...
The most effective memory technique you're probably not using is retrieval practice.
Retrieval is calling to mind material you've heard, watched, or read, instead of re-hearing, re-watching, or re-reading the material again.
Retrieval works amazingly well because the challenge of learning and...
