Failure can be one of the scariest things in life.
We create a plan, work really hard to achieve it, and in the end sometimes find ourselves with nothing left to show but sweat and maybe a few tears. This is fine. In fact, this is a wonderful process that we can learn from.

But why is it so difficult to make a new habit stick?
In this post Ludvig Sunström is going to briefly outline his framework for learning – a method for getting these neurons to fire together more efficiently – and how he has been able to radically boost and speed up the amount of information that he can learn and memorize:

I recently turned 30. Changing the first digit in your age is one of those moments when you’re inclined to really think about the way you’ve lived your life so far and the way you want to live it from that point onward. At least it was for me.
It’s not unusual for some feelings of regret to set in. And that gets you thinking how you can prevent it from happening again in the future.
