Spatial Repetition - Learning Technique
Cognitive science has demonstrated that you forget more than 60% of what you've read just once in less than a week¹.
Fortunately, you'll be reminded to review a Growth Note and your notes two weeks from your original date of reading, and four weeks after. What you learn using this service won't be forgotten, it'll stay with you².
What Makes Growth Notes Unique?
Growth Notes isn’t about cramming your head with ideas. It's about helping you make positive habit changes. Each Growth Note starts with a section, called 'Trim the Weeds' - which hones in on the behaviours worth avoiding based on a book's wisdom.
"The true [way] lies not in a process of accumulation…but rather in elimination. The idea is to seek the root or common denominator in all things" - John Little, The Warrior Within.
After all, we benefit from subtraction, just as much as we do from addition. For every book featured, you'll also find the most impactful highlights and a rating out of ten to help you decide whether a book is worth buying and studying more deeply.
In that sense, Growth Notes doubles as a shortcut to wisdom and a book review service, all within a library that's growing with more books each month. Currently, there are 30 books on the platform, though this will grow to hundreds in time.
Join and experience what awaits on the other side. This isn't your average book summary service, it's a powerful learning tool designed to help you explore how to implement meaningful change. If the service doesn't live up to your standards, cancel anytime - seriously.
Note: Warren Buffett once said, the best investment you can make is in your own education. Because money comes and goes. Relationships come and go.
But what you learn stays with you forever.
