Description

“Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.” — Jim Rohn

Learning new skills can be a great way to improve your life and career.

Learning isn’t a way of reaching one’s potential but rather a way of developing it.

Want to move up? Then, you have to be a perpetual learner.


It’s one thing to know how to learn new things, but it’s another thing entirely to be good at it. Learning how to learn will help you pick up new skills more quickly and effectively.

Learning is a treasure that will follow its owner everywhere. — Chinese proverb

The first half of my life I went to school, the second half of my life I got an education


In times of change, learners inherit the earth, while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists.

Your best ROI is not a return on your investment, but a return on your information.

Learning how to learn is life’s most important skill.

Why does learning matter? These little information edges turn out to be the difference between half-measure wannabes and a literal winner.

One skill you want to master in this day and age we live in, if you want to have an extraordinary life, is the ability to learn rapidly.

Learning how to learn is the most powerful tool you can ever grasp and your life will be enriched beyond measure.

The global economy has shifted from a material-based to a knowledge-based model. Whereas material assets such as gold mines, wheat farms, and oil wells were historically the primary sources of riches, knowledge is now the primary source of prosperity.

The best thing a person can do is help another person learn more.

Banking on living a “traditional” life: going to college, getting a job for a big firm, working hard, and climbing the corporate ladder, might not make sense. Instead, young people today should learn as much as possible and develop a flexible set of skills, so they can re-adapt themselves to whatever the future holds.

The path to success is the continuous pursuit of knowledge. We call this pursuit learning.

Learning how to learn is the most important skill we can develop in the twenty first century.

Almost anything in life can be learned faster.

Most people learn passively. They wait for insights to come to them.

But you can speed things up by actively searching for useful ideas.

One strategy is to ask top people you meet what they do. Make their best practices your baseline.

Another is to use this course to accelerate the process.

The ability to take responsibility for your growth — self-directed learning is a superpower in the age of knowledge abundance.

Let’s get to it!

Inevitably, some people will be on the losing end of change even as the robots make society as a whole better off. One lesson from the freewheeling globalization of the 1990s and 2000s is that the growth in trade that was overwhelmingly beneficial triggered a political backlash, because the losers felt left behind. That is one more reason why firms and governments would do well to recognize the value of retraining and lifelong learning. As jobs change, workers should be helped to acquire new skills.

An expert is someone who, over many years, manages to remain confident enough to keep trying and humble enough to keep learning.

Learning is the only thing the mind never exhausts, never fears, and never regrets — Leonardo Da Vinci

The path to success is the continuous pursuit of knowledge.

Success is the product of accumulative advantage.

This course will cover accelerated learning and the retention of knowledge.

The famous futurist Alvin Toffler once said, “The illiterate of the future are not those who can’t read or write but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.”

What got you here won’t get you where you want to go.

“Knowledge is exploding, so you need to commit yourself to a plan for lifelong learning.” — Don Tapscott


“The most important skill for getting rich is becoming a perpetual learner. You have to know how to learn anything you want to learn. — Naval


Lifelong learners are not afraid to unlearn to relearn. Beware of false knowledge. What you know could be holding you back. Learning to learn is a valuable skill in the modern world.


Their long term goal is personal satisfaction. The bigger goal of learning can help you lead a meaningful and fulfilling life.


Over the long term, lifelong learners learn more from unstructured learning than from formal education. School gets you started; self-learning keeps you going.

What you will learn:

  • How the brain works in learning

  • Focused and Diffused Thinking

  • How the brain uses two very different learning modes and how it encapsulates (“chunks”) information.

  • The Feynman Technique

  • Dealing with procrastination

  • test-taking tips

  • Seinfeld’s Productivity Secret

  • Pomodoro Technique

  • Creativity

  • Memorization techniques

  • Create a Personal Knowledge Management System

  • Mind Mapping

  • How to take notes

  • How to Read for Knowledge acquisition

  • How to create a Personal Knowledge Management (PKM) system (what is sometimes called a second brain)

  • How to do Research

  • How to take advantage of sleep and your unconscious mind, priming yourself to assimilate information and solve problems more efficiently.


This course gives you easy access to the invaluable learning techniques used by experts in art, music, literature, math, science, sports, and many other disciplines. We’ll learn about how the brain uses two very different learning modes and how it encapsulates (“chunks”) information. We’ll also cover illusions of learning, memory techniques, dealing with procrastination, and best practices shown by research to be most effective in helping you master tough subjects.

Using these approaches, no matter what your skill levels in topics you would like to master, you can change your thinking and change your life. If you’re already an expert, this peep under the mental hood will give you ideas for turbocharging successful learning, including counter-intuitive test-taking tips and insights that will help you make the best use of your time on homework and problem sets. If you’re struggling, you’ll see a structured treasure trove of practical techniques that walk you through what you need to do to get on track. If you’ve ever wanted to become better at anything, this course will help serve as your guide.


Break Through Obstacles to Learning and Discover Your Hidden Potential

This course reveals how we can overcome stereotypes and preconceived ideas about what is possible for us to learn and become.

The famous futurist Alvin Toffler once said, “The illiterate of the future are not those who can’t read or write but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.”

At a time when we are constantly being asked to retrain and reinvent ourselves to adapt to new technologies and changing industries, this course shows us how we can uncover and develop talents we didn’t realize we had—no matter what our age or background. Drawing on the latest neuroscientific insights, this course shepherds us past simplistic ideas of “aptitude” and “ability,” which provide only a snapshot of who we are now—with little consideration about how we can change.

Even seemingly “bad” traits, such as a poor memory, come with hidden advantages—like increased creativity. We can turn perceived weaknesses, such as impostor syndrome and advancing age, into strengths. People may feel like they’re at a disadvantage if they pursue a new field later in life; yet those who change careers can be fertile cross-pollinators: They bring valuable insights from one discipline to another. John Cousins teaches us strategies for learning that are backed by neuroscience so that we can realize the joy and benefits of a learning lifestyle. Become a Learning Ninja takes us deep inside the world of how people change and grow. Our biggest stumbling blocks can be our own preconceptions, but with the right mental insights, we can tap into hidden potential and create new opportunities.
