Spatial Repetition - Revolutionary Learning
Cognitive science has demonstrated that we forget more than 60% of what we've read in less than a week¹. The spatial repetition feature, 'Growth Cycle', prevents you from forgetting the practical takeaways from any Growth Note².
You'll be reminded to review a Growth Note and your answers to the questions in the Personal Insights box two weeks from your original date of reading.
Once you’ve done this, you’re reminded to repeat the same thing four weeks after. By spacing the review sessions you’re circumventing your mind’s tendency to forget what you've learnt - meaning you’ll retain the practical ideas for the long term!
What Makes Growth Notes Different?
To nurture your life's journey you can first avoid unhealthy behaviors. Second, you can pick up new healthy habits. Third, you can take steps that will pay off in the future. Every single Growth Note has been designed with these principles of change in mind, under the theme of nature.
For every book featured, you'll also find the most impactful passages and a rating out of ten to help you decide whether it's 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.
What Makes Growth Notes Unique
Growth Notes isn’t about cramming your head with ideas. Everything the service offers is designed to help you make intelligent behavioral adjustments. Every Growth Note not only provides you with steps you can start applying but also suggestions on which behaviors are worth avoiding. After all, it's only through first removing the weeds from your life that you can build a better foundation for growth.
How We Support The Planet
Every month, we donate five percent of profits to the Earth Day Network³. The organization implements nature in urban cities to combat excessive pollution. They also aim to help remedy climate change, reduce plastic pollution, protect endangered species - while broadening the environmental movement across the globe.
We all belong to the world just as much the nearest tree. Often, we compartmentalize our lives into small boxes that we view as detached from the world. But we belong, far more than we realize. No one is better than us, and we are not better than anyone. We are merely what we shape ourselves to be, and that's always a choice.
Join and experience what awaits on the other side.
And if the service doesn't live up to your standards, cancel anytime.
