Reading Metacognitively

You try every time to make connections with another subject.
Zettelkasten, May 29, 2020 (changes)


  • You read actively, not passively.
  • You constantly ask questions to yourself about what you're reading.
    • "Can I explain it to a 12 years old child?"
    • "Can I associate this with some other subject?"
    • "How can this can be applied to my life?"
  • You try every time to make connections with another subject.
  • Slows down your speed reading because you need more time to engage with the material.
  • You expand your knowledge base because you send more information to your long-term memory.


  • How can I know that I'm reading/studying metacognitively?

  • Which other areas besides reading can I perform metacognitively?

'The first goal is to improve my learning habit. It'd be amazing when I cultivate the habit of studying a topic per week, close it, share with other people, and start to read a new different topic. I hope I receive many feedbacks because it can improve the issues I investigate, and on top of that, I can meet amazing people.'
