I've been using a Read/Code/Bike/Repeat learning strategy a lot recently.

How does this work?

  1. Read a paper.
  2. Write some code based on the paper. It probably won't work.
  3. Go for a bike ride in which I'm forcibly isolated from the internet (checking your phone while on a bike is hazardous to your health!) and have to think about it in isolation. Probably figure out some useful insights as a result.
  4. Go back to step 1.

And basically repeating this process until I feel satisfied with my understanding of things.

Obviously this doesn't require an actual bike ride. Anything which disconnects you from external influences will do, but I think the exercise element might actually be a helpful part of it.
