According to multiple studies, we quickly forget about 80% of everything we learn.
Spaced repetition is a proven method that fixes this. It is built upon a simple principle - we better remember things we encounter frequently.
It works by reminding you to review your notes at a spaced interval (in 1 day, in 3 days, in 10 days, and so on). The more you learn, the less frequent the note pops up for a review.
By regularly repeating your learnings, you will learn more efficiently and remember more for longer periods.
It could be anything - a book review, your favorite song lyrics, or that Wikipedia article you were reading last night.
Tags are used to organize your notes, and links are used to connect related ones.
