Summarize Content to Build Mental Models

When you read a book, listen to a podcast, or otherwise consume content made by experts, it is vital to summarize and rework their ideas into your own words. Writing refines thinking, and this process allows you to:

  1. Inhabit their mind by imitating their thought patterns and language.
  2. Build durable neural connections through Elaboration.
  3. Show Your Work with others and engage them in meaningful conversation.
