2017 impa ct: You would expect the Dolphins to regress toward the mean, as teams haven't displayed much ability to hold on to these hidden benefits, but Miami doesn't appear to be budging. They've ranked in the top three of special-teams luck since 2013 and haven't ranked outside of the top seven since 2010. Indeed, since that 2013 season, opposing kickers have successfully converted a league-low percent of their field goal tries against the Dolphins. The Patriots ( percent) are the only other team in the league below 80 percent.
I came upon the Spaced Repetition method doing some CME’s on Qstream about four years ago.
I changed the frequency of days between right and wrong answers somewhat.
5 days for right and 3 days for wrong answers. I received 5 questions daily. I needed to answer the
questions correctly twice consecutively in order to retire each of the 40 questions.
Over the period of two months, I had retired all. I took the same CME six months ago and retired all
the questions in 3 weeks time. For me, there’s no doubt that Spaced Repetition greatly enhanced
my knowledge retention.
When we think of stories, it is often easy to convince ourselves that they have to be complex and detailed to be interesting. The truth is however, that the simpler a story, the more likely it will stick. Using simple language as well as low complexity is the best way to activate the brain regions that make us truly relate to the happenings of a story. This is a similar reason why multitasking is so hard for us. Try for example to reduce the number of adjectives or complicated nouns in a presentation or article and exchange them with more simple, yet heartfelt language.
