A THREAD on interesting ideas from the book "Ultralearning" by Scott Young:


The best ultralearners are those who blend the practical reasons for learning a skill with an inspiration that comes from something that excites them.

By taking notes as questions instead of answers, you generate the material to practice retrieval on later.

Beyond principles and tactics is a broader ultralearning ethos.

It’s one of taking responsibility for your own learning: deciding what you want to learn, how you want to learn it, and crafting your own plan to learn what you need to...
...You’re the one in charge, & you’re the one who’s ultimately responsible for the results you generate.

If you approach ultralearning in that spirit, you should take these principles as flexible guidelines, not as rigid rules.

Metalearning: First Draw a Map.

Start by learning how to learn the subject or skill you want to tackle.

Discover how to do good research and how to draw on your past competencies to learn new skills more easily.

Your deepest moments of happiness don’t come from doing easy things; they come from realizing your potential and overcoming your own limiting beliefs about yourself.

Learning, at its core, is a broadening of horizons, of seeing things that were previously invisible and of recognizing capabilities within yourself that you didn't know existed.

It is true that the more you learn about a subject, the more questions arise.

In attempting to emulate or copy an example you appreciate, you must deconstruct it to understand why it works.

The key to experimenting with different styles is to be aware of all the different styles that exist.

The first place to experiment is with the methods, materials, and resources you use to learn.

The illusion of understanding is very often the barrier to deeper knowledge.

Forgetting is human nature, so it is not enough to learn; you also need to make the information stick.

Knowledge that isn’t in your head can’t be used to help you solve problems.

A THREAD on key ideas from the book "The Art of Learning: A Journey in the Pursuit of Excellence" by Josh Waitzkin:


The key to pursuing excellence is to embrace an organic, long-term learning process, and not to live in a shell of static, safe mediocrity.

If your goal is to be mediocre, then you have a considerable margin for error.

You can get depressed when fired and mope around waiting for someone to call with a new job offer.

If you hurt your toe, you can take six weeks watching television and eating potato chips.

There will be nothing learned from any challenge in which we don’t try our hardest.

Growth comes at the point of resistance.

We learn by pushing ourselves and finding what really lies at the outer reaches of our abilities.

A THREAD on key ideas from the book "Factfulness: Ten Reasons We're Wrong About The World - And Why Things Are Better Than You Think" by Hans Rosling:


The overdramatic worldview in people’s heads creates a constant sense of crisis and stress.

There’s no room for facts when our minds are occupied by fear.

Here’s the paradox: the image of a dangerous world has never been broadcast more effectively than it is now, while the world has never been less violent and more safe.

A THREAD on insightful ideas by Henry Ford:


It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning. Image

If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said faster horses.

There is one rule for the industrialist and that is: make the best quality of goods possible at the lowest cost possible, paying the highest wages possible.

A THREAD on interesting ideas from the book "The Future is Faster than you Think" by Peter Diamandis & Steven Kotler:


The real power of a user-friendly interface — it democratizes technology.

Think about the internet itself.

The point is this: being able to see around the corner of tomorrow and being agile enough to adapt to what’s coming have never been more important.

A THREAD on insightful timeless ideas by Ludwig von Mises:


Many who are self-taught far excel the doctors, masters, and bachelors of the most renowned universities. Image

Once the principle is admitted that it is the duty of the government to protect the individual against his own foolishness, no serious objections can be advanced against further encroachments.

Under capitalism, the common man enjoys amenities which in ages gone by were unknown and therefore inaccessible even to the richest people.

But, of course, these motorcars, television sets and refrigerators do not make a man happy...
