“The Man Who Does Not Read Has No Advantage Over the Man Who Cannot Read” -Mark Twain
Learning how to become an expert in almost any field quickly and without going to school. I must admit, I did not have high hopes for Brandon Hakim’s learning formula at first.
However. I’m glad to say I was mistaken.
The results far exceeded my expectations. In fact, It has helped me skip three years of college and get hired as a web developer after only 6 months.
I don’t think I could have gotten those results on my own.
You need to Learn To Learn
LOOK: School is not effective.
Did you ever notice how you forget more than half of what you studied?
The truth is that school’s focus on memorization leads to students remembering everything pretty well in the short term, but not in the long term.
But that’s not all.
Be honest with yourself, how much of what you learn in school is really useful in achieving your goals?Probably not much, but you’re still forced to learn many things that are irrelevant.
You’ll lose a lot of time you could have spent either learning skills that are more relevant or actually building your business.
Thankfully, Brandon’s alternative learning formula has none of those issues.
You’ll learn how your brain learns and how you can use this knowledge to make sure you remember what you learn over long periods of time.
Read for Action
If you read without taking action, you won’t make progress towards achieving your goals.
Not everything you read is of equal value.
To take the right actions, you also need to read choose the right books and to focus on the right things.
Learning a few things that are useful is better than learning many things that have no use.
Always ask yourself how you can use it and don’t focus on everything, extract what you can use.
Make it a Habit
“As humans, if we don’t commit to something beforehand, chances are we are not going to do it when the time comes.”-Brandon Hakim
This course will teach you how to make reading a habit. You’ll learn tips on how to make it sustainable and how to make it easy to stick to.
This section teaches you how to create a reading habit, but the most of the concepts and strategies in creating reading habits are also relevant in creating any other type of habit.
Let’s face it. Learning something you can’t use is useless!
It’s not about quantity. Learning more will not necessarily get you closer to your goals. However, learning the right things will.
As Brandon puts it: “There are always big ideas that are worth more than numerous small ideas combined. Focus on those to learn anything quickly.”
This learning formula strives for maximal results resulting from minimal efforts.
To read more effectively, you’ll learn when and how to write in it, to skip the parts you don’t need and more, how to read quicker and more.
Here are my results.
I’ve finished twice more books this year than last year and yet I spent less time reading. And I remember more of what I read.
Is This Course Good?
This course is straightforward and goes straight to the point.
There is close to zero unnecessary filler content here which means that every section feels meaningful.
Brandon Hakim is entertaining and fun tu listen to.
And most importantly, his alternative learning formula works.
