Lesson on Learning

Just found some old notes I took about learning, although I’m not sure of the context. All of it looks useful but the things I highlighted are still things I need to learn.

Self-learning is not a Sprint

Pre-requisite concepts

  • prodigy myth (highlighted) vs growth mindset
  • grit: develop it like a muscle
  • be willing to look/be stupid
  • set deadlines


  • small steps
  • don’t ignore mistakes

Self-study techniques

  • a few (15) minutes each day
