“Learning to Learn [Efficient Learning]: Zero to Mastery” - Course Review and Notes

In this blog post, I’ll post my notes and thoughts about the course “Learning to Learn [Efficient Learning]: Zero to Mastery.” The course has four main sections: Principles, Pillars, Lies, and Techniques. The Principles The section establishes some useful principles for motivated self-learners. Learning vs. Winning The System shift from trying to win the game (get good grades, get a promotion) to a mindset of long-term learning (see “The Lesson to Unlearn” by Paul Graham define your measure of success you need drive and persistence embrace the obstacle: you’ll be bad first until you get good know when to quit, make a smart choice (not everyone can become an Olympic athlete) compound learning: learn in chunks instead of cramming improve by 1% every day failures don’t count against you: people know you right now, they don’t care about the test you failed five years ago use failure as a feedback loop mindset: choice vs.
