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:
Write the name of the concept at the top of a blank paper (or make it a blog title)
- 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)
- 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.
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.
