Committing to Learning is Easy. Problem is, I Keep Forgetting.

I had a little back-and-forth discussion with @Grotaiche on StockTwits this morning. He’s a newer trader based in Paris who is committed to learning a little bit about the markets every day. While chatting, I mentioned the reason I blog is so I can document my thoughts and lessons I’ve learned. And it got me thinking that perhaps the biggest problem I face is I keep forgetting some of my more important and hard learned lessons.
Often a huge frustration for me is that by the time I finally learn a lesson, the conditions that existed change and now a new lesson is being taught to me by the markets. You’d think after nearly 14 years in the markets, I’d have learned (and remembered!) everything I need to know by now.
What good is learning if I keep forgetting the lesson? How can I change this?
I’m interested to know what tricks my readers employ to ensure that lessons learned are lessons retained. Please share your ideas in the comments section?
