One of the best ways to help retain what you learn is to reflect (think about what you have learned). One of the best ways to reflect on what you learn is to write about it. One of the best ways to write about what you are learning is to keep a journal. When you write about what you learn you automatically review what you have learned which helps with retention. In order to write about what you learn you have to understand it, which increases learning effectiveness. Also, once you have a written record of what you have learned going back and reviewing it is much easier, which further helps with retention. Keeping a journal is a great way to help yourself learn faster and deeper. So start journaling and writing about what you learn and see what happens.
