Finding sequences and order in the material you read, will help you retain the information because of the structure you discover.
The more sequences you discover, the better you will remember and understand the reading material.
When you discover a sequence in the text, give some thought to the reason why it is ordered that way, such as:
- from hot to cold
- from dark to light
Making a clear list helps you remember concepts better because you see them in relation to each other.
If you find that some concepts do not fit, that in itself is also interesting and helps you with understanding and remembering the material.
Eventually you’ll also discover order where the authors did not think of themselves, or did not think it important enough to address.
