Discussion on: How To Learn Better And Avoid Procrastination

I really like this approach! I once read somewhere that one has understood something if they're able to explain it to others, which, at least from my experiences, holds true. Explicitly learning with the goal in mind to teach others therefore sounds very reasonable to me.

Also, one thing I noticed: Often times, people teaching can be so very used to the topic that they neglect the smallest details at the beginning, thinking they're "obvious" to the people they teach, but that's often not the case. With this in mind and with your approach, I can imagine that you'll pay some special attention to those very details while learning.
