Weird learning habits

Be your unapologetically weird self. (Chris Sacca)

Fragments from imaginary dialogues

“Do you have any weird learning habits?”

“I do.

One weird habit has to do with randomness. I love randomness [<link; medium length].

I divide the learning day into ‘learning-slots‘. Most slots are fixed in that I know exactly what I’m focusing on. However one slot is random. I have a selection of learning resources, and I extract one from it at random every day. I thus get a nice little surprise every time.

Another weird habit has to do with width.

I like to read a lot of books at the same time. I measure learning in ideas rather than time. So I might say ‘I studied for x ideas’ rather than ‘I studied for x minutes’.

As far as I’m concerned, whether you read 10 ideas from one book, or one idea from 10 books, it amounts to the same. I prefer the latter approach. I actually read 10 books at the same time.”

“Doesn’t it fragment your knowledge?”

“On the contrary. I’m interested in the interconnectedness [<link; short] of all knowledge.”
