  1. Gather raw information (general and specific).
  2. Read and try to understand it. Absorb as much information as you can.
  3. Forget it. Sleep or do other things.

  5. Implement it.

  • Need to gather and absorb more information, back to step 1
  • Need to re-read/re-absorb the information (our brain maybe lose focus to more important things), back to step 2
  • Need to re-read the documentary of the partial ideas, back to step 2
  • Need more times as the ideas are rather complex to connect, back to step 3
