I’m introducing a new feature here on Study Hacks — a recap of each month’s most popular posts. I hope this will help readers keep up with the content and sift the best from the rest. Below are the five most well-received articles of August, as determined by a combination of page views and user comments.

    hi! πŸ˜€

    this is a cool feature. it’s helping me now since I’ve been sick the past weeks and haven’t caught up on your posts.

    It’s interesting that these articles are likely the most controversial articles, rather than being the bread-and-butter posts of your blog, the practical type.

    This might be a flaw with my popularity metric. The controversial articles attract more comments, but they’re not necessarily more popular to my readers. It’s just there’s not always much to say in response to a piece of time management advice, for example. I’ll keep this in mind for the September wrap-up.

    Hey cal, I just read your second book and while I think it was really helpful, I’ve just discovered a serious problem. What happens when I lose the sheet of paper I carry around with me. Then all of the new things I’m supposed to remember for the day have been lost. I mean i can try to recall them, but the whole point of this is to remove the stress of forgotten tasks. And now it occurs to me, that I lose things a lot. I’ve only been you using your system for three days and I’ve already lost the page…. this could happen every week! I’m starting to have some doubts here….

    My advice: Don’t lose it. πŸ™‚

    I’ve found that if I literally keep it in my pocket all day, it’s hard to lose. If this still proves difficult, then keep a moleskin always in the front pocket of your backpack — or some similar system that keeps your capture system always in the same place.
