How do you 10X your ability to learn?
How do you actually take on the challenge of learning everything you've always wanted to learn?
For most people, it's not possible.
And the reason why is because they don't have a system.
It doesn't matter what software you use.
I don't care how much storage you have.
Or how great your search algorithm is.
It's not going to allow you to truly scale your learning to the next level.
The first step is realizing that everything you learn needs to be part of a project.
There is no such thing as learning something out of context.
Context is a requirement.
And using projects to organize your learning is the best way to keep it organized and on track towards a goal.
How many times have you had a specific question, and then chased it down a rabbit hole, and then emerged weeks or months later after a bunch of books and courses and forgotten why you even got started in the first place?
Without any answer to that original question?
What learning projects allow you to do is get clear on a number of things.
What are your goals? Questions you want answered? Are there ultimate deliverables or things you want to create by the end?
Storing them in the project makes sure you remember these over the months and years.
What are your resources? Books? Courses? Conversations?
How do you keep them all in one place and not forget about whole books or courses you went through years ago? And where do all your notes go?
This course solves all those problems and many more.
Finally, how do you keep track of your progress? Where were you 2 months ago when you last read that book on programming or networking or history?
Keeping a log in your learning project allows you to pick right back up where you left off.
The other huge thing you get with this system is the ability to keep things organized across different spaces. The same single system will keep you organized in your cloud drives, on your off-line hard drives, in your OneNote or EverNote, as well as in the physical world, in your file cabinets or 3 ring binders and your bookshelves.
This is a complete system.
You set it up once and it's going to save you 100s of hours just in the next year and thousands of hours over the course of your life.
I've gotten many many requests for this course, and it's finally here.
See you inside,
Who this course is for:
- Professionals who want better control of all their different learning projects
- Entrepreneurs who want a system for learning all the different skills they want to learn
- Students who want to never start from scratch because they lost their progress on an old learning project
