Elon Musk, Albert Einstein, and Richard Feynman Explain How to Learn Anything Faster
Two Nobel laureates and a super entrepreneur share their best tricks for faster learning.

Albert Einstein: Enjoy yourself.
Quote:
According to Einstein, great mental leaps and fun go together, and the more you can enjoy learning, the faster you're likely to pack information into your brain and make breakthroughs.


Richard Feynman: Explain it to a child.
Richard Feynman wrote:
"When you write out an idea from start to finish in simple language that a child can understand (tip: use only the most common words), you force yourself to understand the concept at a deeper level and simplify relationships and connections between ideas. If you struggle, you have a clear understanding of where you have some gaps. That tension is good -- it heralds an opportunity to learn,"

Elon Musk: Think of knowledge as a tree.
Elon Musk wrote:
"It is important to view knowledge as sort of a semantic tree -- make sure you understand the fundamental principles, i.e., the trunk and big branches, before you get into the leaves/details or there is nothing for them to hang on to."
