The talahardin cycle refers to the holistic process of using the system in engaging with information and generating knowledge. It is a cycle because the end of one loop informs the next. The phases of this cycle are:

  1. metalearning
  2. reading, highlighting, and taking literature notes
  3. Reading highlights and writing evergreens
  4. Developing Structure notes, Outline notes, or drafts
  5. Reflecting (my daily review routine)

The cycle can be done in two ways:

  1. talahardin cycle for a book
  2. Talahardin cycle as one study session
