Quick Hits: Come Meet Me and Chris Guillebeau at Harvard Square Monday NightSeptember 11th, 2010 · 18 comments
Two quick notes before we return to our regularly scheduled posts…
Come Meet Me and Chris Guillebeau at the Harvard Coop Bookstore at 7 PM on Monday, Sept. 13.
Chris is giving a talk about his provocative new book, The Art of Non-Conformity. Come hear his challenges to live a life that’s both engaging and useful to the world. After the talk, Chris and I will be hanging out in the Coop Cafe until closing to talk shop about remarkable living, writing, and whatever else interests you. We hope to see you there!
Learn More, Study Less
If you’re among the many readers who enjoy Scott Young’s blog in addition to Study Hacks, then you should give some serious consideration to his new video course, Learn More, Study Less. I spent an interesting morning earlier this week watching Scott’s lessons. Some of his approaches will sound familiar to fans of my books, and some I wish I had thought up first (his lesson on procrastination and time management, for example, are worth the price of the whole course); others clash with my philosophy: I’m not a fan of mind mapping style notes — too inefficient, in my opinion.
For the advanced student who is serious about optimizing habits, it’s worth taking a look at more details on the course — Scott offers an original point of view on these topics.
