Working does not mean stopping learning but how you get new knowledge should also be followed the right way!
Imagine you study too hard, trying to remember all kinds of things, afraid and miserable because you cannot remember anything. That’s okay because you’re actually not studying, but sorting and storing information.
Expert Nguyen Phi Van is a founding member and developer of World Franchise Associates in Southeast Asia, and also the President of Retail & Franchise Asia, Brand franchise advisor to the Government of Malaysia. …

Female experts affirmed: “Whether students, working, or businessmen, we all have to learn. However, everything you” learn “through school or books to me It is only information, not knowledge. can still understand.
To do so, we have to go through information processing, connect it with our own experience, and create and produce a new way of expressing this information. in our coolest, easy to understand, simplest way.
If we only note the information and then reproduce it, it is not knowledge. Imagine you study too hard, trying to remember all kinds of things, afraid and miserable because you cannot remember anything. That’s okay, because you’re actually not studying, but sorting and storing information.”
Therefore, expert Nguyen Phi Van wants to share with you a fast, effective learning method, and help you convert information into knowledge, called the Feynman method. It is known that Richard Feynman is the Nobel laureate in physics and the author of the fast learning method, which includes 4 steps as follows:
1. Choose a topic
You choose a topic that you want to learn, for example, AI – Artificial Intelligence – Artificial Intelligence because you know that artificial intelligence will affect all industries in the future. After that, start to collect all resources on this topic such as books, websites, online lectures, videos, blogs of writers about this topic. You read and write down what you learn in a separate journal. Every time you learn something new, you write it down.
2. Teach a child or a person who knows nothing
You try explaining that topic to a child or someone who does not know anything, understand, or has anything to do with the topic you are researching. And those who are listening to you will not understand the terminology. You try it. It’s not easy. People who do not understand, understand enough about a problem will explain in a very confusing way. They just do it to hide their ignorance. If you explain something in a straightforward way, simply to someone who cannot, it means you do not understand deeply enough and need to learn it again.
After teaching, you will see many problems that you need to simplify. To simplify, we do not read more information, we need to reflect on and translate the information in our own language. You should check to see if you can confidently explain the most basic terms in a way that is easiest to understand. Sometimes a large concept has to be broken up into many small topics. We will explain each subtopic, linking these subtopics so that the listener can understand a larger concept.
4. Repeat the simplification process
After each explanation, explaining it to the ignorant, we will learn that there is much more room for simplification. So we continue to find ways to simplify our teaching or explanation. This continuous improvement process will help us to understand more and more about the topic under study. If you go and explain to someone they don’t understand, don’t assume they’re ignorant. Maybe I don’t understand the place. Should see that other people do not understand, first look at yourself, look at your own explanation, and try the method of simplifying the problem first.
