Feynman Technique

Feynman technique is a method to help you to learn basically anything, faster. The technique is named after Richard Feynman, a Noble Prize winner physicist. The technique consists of 4 steps:

  1. Title
    Write the name of the concept at the top of a blank paper (or make it a blog title)
  2. Simple Explanation
    Explain and elaborate the concept using simple terms (non-technical), perhaps analogy, as if you explain the concept to a child (person who is totally clueless about the concept)
  3. Find What You Don’t Know
    While doing step 2, you might find things that you can’t explain.So write the name of these difficult concept as the sub-title, read books/materials to understand the concept, then repeat step 2.
  4. Review
    Check to ensure that all explanations are using simple terms. If you find any explanation that is simply para-phrasing the source material, simplify it. Add analogy or maybe simple visual aid.
