Discover the most efficient way to remember what you learn

Take back HOURS and DAYS of your life from endless studying by integrating Anki in your study workflow — in the most practical way possible.

What LeanAnki is all about

We don’t blindly strive for efficiency — we strive for freedom. The freedom to do things we care about. The freedom to pursue the careers we want. The freedom to live a life outside of studying.

Efficient studying is about eliminating wastes in your study system. Remove the things that are making you learn inefficiently in the first place.

  • Having tons and tons of notes that you don’t actually review
  • Knowledge gaps that get bigger over time
  • Waiting for exams before you start testing

Don’t follow the crowd. If you do the same thing as everyone else, and think the same way as everyone else, you’ll get the same results as everyone else. 

Infinite Game Thinking. “Studying more hours” is unsustainable. “Using more hacks” is infeasible. Systems, skills, principles, mental models, and continuous improvement bring better results in the real world as compared to obsessing over every little “research-based hack” and the shiny new note-taking tools.

“One-size-fits-all solutions” don’t exist. They’re delusions at best. Diagnose the underlying study problem first and then design a proper solution for your context.

Improve your study skills. Prioritize having a study system that works.
