I'd like to describe myself as an adventurer who seeks to explore new knowledge. But actually, I'm just an ordinary people, struggling hard to make the life a little better.

Based on my experience, once you take note "the most important things" and structure them in the sheet, every time you look into it, you will see not only what was written, but also all the related knowledge. As I said before, your knowledge is not gone. They just need a simple "reminder", a "red thread" that involves old the memories to reform it again..

comment Forgetting of concepts
@Kunai Suri: thinking again, I think that your problem is about not calling up knowledges/memories when you need them, right? You may refer to the good answers below... but I think I can share with you a small tip: we can't remember all the things we want, but we can remember the "red thread", which including only the most important things. For trigonometry, you can note down what you think as the most important theories (in ONLY an A4 paper). After that, every time you need the info, just review that paper only.

@Kunai Suri: I think it's natural. Many of my friends are just like you, forget about trigonometry several months after they don't need to do exercises anymore... Actually, they are not really gone - the knowledge is still inside your head - you should be able to quickly catch up if you spend some time on it again

can you give a more detailed example? For example, some cases happen in your work/study.

comment Effectively using a 21 day challenge
+1 for keeping the record. This will help keeping things on track; and you can take the experience in progress, not only the habit.

comment Balancing time and quality
@Suvankar: I know this is not a full answer, but in software development there's a saying that "pre-optimization is evil". I think the good approach should be: define the basic problem, solve it by the most simple way, then expands. In short: make it simple first, then enhance.

comment Touch Typing for Programmers
I agree with Brian. Most of the time in programming, we spend times figuring out the solutions, not typing commands..

comment Dealing with Existential Crisis
Why not you try other things than only working on the PhD works day by day? Take some sport activities, go to new places, meeting new people.. I'm not sure those activities will help you get better at your work, but it may enlarge your view about the world. Maybe you'll find the answer you're searching :)

I'm not a graduate student, but I think I understand some of your feelings. I think the root of your problem is that you're not sure about what you're doing (which everyone of us has sometimes in our life).

comment Does the “30/30 Minute Work Cycle” really work?
Well, the technique (for example, pomodoro) is just a tool. It won't fit all people. But you can use it as a hint: research tells that people works better if they take small breaks among work hours. You may give it a try.

comment How to compare performance?
@AdamWuerl: because it's only what I feel.. People around me seems un-awared about my changes, and it may tell that I'm actually not improved. Feelings may not reflects truthfully the facts; I need something more concrete.

The hard part here is that my estimation skill is not so good. Task often exceed the deadline :(

@Christian: I think it helps some way... at least better than nothing. Maybe I will track the number of code lines...
