Improvement pill here. A study was conducted in 2014 at Princeton
University where they separated a class into two groups. The researchers had each
group take notes for a class in two different ways. The first group was told
to take notes by hand. You know the old-school method with a
pen and paper which was met with a lot of groans and complaints because well it
requires a lot of effort it's time-consuming and it cramps up your hands.
The second group was told to take notes by typing it out on their laptop
or phone or whatever device which was a far more efficient way of note-taking.
In fact, the second group on average ended up with twice the amount of notes after
each class compared with the pen and paper group. Now the purpose of this
study was to figure out what method of taking notes would allow you to remember
more of what was being taught so at the end of the semester the researchers
looked at the overall test scores for all of the students in this class.
And to their surprise the kids who took notes by hand using the old-school pen and
paper method scored twice as well as the kids who used their laptops. That's a lot.
And at first the researchers thought okay maybe having this group take notes
by hand somehow prompted them to study a bit more outside of class so they
conducted this study two more times. One time they tested each group immediately
after class so they had no time to study and the second time they gave a surprise
test to each group only a week after they took notes. Both times the kids
who took notes by hand squirt about twice as well as the kids
who typed out their notes. What they discovered in this experiment is what I
like to call the effort principle. Essentially, the more effort you put into
recording a piece of information, the better you will retain it and I believe
that this is a concept has a lot of value in the world of self improvement
See one of the biggest issues with self improvement is the fact that there's so
much information out there. There are hundreds of thousands of books, videos
and podcasts but it doesn't matter how much time you spend consuming this
information because if you're not remembering any of it and internalizing
the lessons, there's no point. Now I know I know I'm someone who advocates
listening to audiobooks a lot. I tell you guys to do it all the time but to be
honest I don't think just listening to audiobooks is ideal. It's too easy.
It doesn't require that much effort. In fact, back in the day I would often find
myself listening to an entire book and just one or two week
later barely remembering any of the key concepts. So today I want to show you a
sort of note-taking mini habit that I created over the years that has allowed
me to retain most of the key lessons from the books that I listen to.
Quick little side tangent. If you are interested in building habits, we do have
a new program, the habit builder challenge that teaches you exactly how
to do that we sold out all of the seats in just a week and the program has been
extremely successful so far. So if you want to gain access to this program the
next time we run it, all you have to do is click on the link in the description
box below to sign up for the waiting list. Now back to the topic at hand the
note-taking mini habit is essentially this. See I carried these little water
proof notebooks with me. They are a bit smaller than my phone which makes them
very easy to carry around and whenever I'm listening to a book and I come
across in a ha moment basically a moment where the gears in your head click and
something just makes a whole lot of sense to you something that you know is
a game changer that you should really remember. When that happens, I will put in
some effort to record that lesson down. For example, a couple of weeks ago, I was
listening to《Can't Hurt Me》by David Goggins at the gym and I came across in
a ha moment when he talked about what he likes to call the cookie jar method.
The moment I heard about this method. I thought to myself, "Wow, this is some
powerful stuff. I need to remember this." so I put down my weights. I paused the
audio book. I pulled out my little notebook and pen and I wrote down cookie jar method
And I proceeded to write a short little summary about what it was
and after doing that I rewinded the audio by a couple of minutes. Just so I
could listen to that part again. If you take a look at this incident. I'm putting
in maybe 10 20 times more effort into digesting this one piece of information
as compared to if I just listen to it on the audiobook and because of that that
lesson has stuck with me ever since. And to top it all off. When I really really
want a lesson to stick with me, I'll actually go out of my way and put in
even more effort by bringing it up in a conversation soon after. I have some
friends that are interested in self-improvement and when we're just
hanging out, I'll talk about some of the new concepts I've come across recently.
The moment you re-teach what you've learned, you're putting in additional effort,
which will cause you to retain the information even more. This episode's
brought to you by you guessed it audible. Now that you know about the effort
principle, you still have to read books and orders to find powerful lessons that
are even worth remembering. This is where audible comes in. Audible allows you to
find powerful lessons in places where you normally
be able to pull out a physical book. I listen to the audio books when I'm
commuting on long flights, when I'm eating by myself and when I'm working
out. Go to www.youtube.com packed with powerful lessons that we should all
remember so definitely check that out besides that guys stay tuned.
