最近因为看到豆瓣上有人分享叫Scott Young的88年小伙儿的经历，看到他的博客介绍：I'm a writer, programmer, traveler and avid reader of interesting things. For the last eight years I've been experimenting to find out how to get more from life. I don't promise I have all the answers, just a place to start.以及他想要 learn everything的梦想让我对他的博客产生了兴趣， Scott Young从 18 岁开始写自己的博客。把自己的学习经历记录下来，与读者分享自己的学习体会，现在Scott的博客已经有将近 900 篇文章，围绕 'How to get more from life' ，涵盖了从productivity, learning, fitness, habits, the meaning of life等多个主题。
Scott指出的方法：首先，确定要改变的主题，比如每天跳绳100下，持续坚持三十天（或更长），随着行为不断重复，直到行为变成自动化，形成习惯。即’ set it and forget it'
-每天记录To do list, 然后定期check
你可以选择专而精(reading exclusively about one subject) 的模式也可以选择广而博 (read about everything)的阅读模式，可以根据你的学习目的，选择精读或者速读。Scott每年坚持读书30-70本，他的学习模式是T字型，‘My personal approach is the “T” model. You want deep focus in onearea, with minor focus in other areas. So, while I might practice a new skillsay, tango dancing or Ruby programming, if it isn’t in my deep focus, I won’t worry about mastering it. Having some basic competence will beenough to spur new creative connections.’
Holistic learning is basically the opposite of rote memorization. Instead of trying to pound information into your brain with the hopes it will simply fall
out when you need it, holistic learning is the process of weaving the knowledge you are learning into everything you already understand.
1) Metaphors-Metaphor is a literary term used when you want to relate two things that aren’t actually related. A quick way to start would be to play the, ‘That Reminds Me Of...’ game whenever you learn something new. You play the game by thinking or writing down a list of ideas that this new concept reminds you of. It doesn’t matter if the ideas are ridiculous or completely unrelated. That’s the point, to link together ideas that don't normally connect.
2) Visualization-The best visceralizations are combinations of images, sounds, feelings and textures.
3) Diagrams-Draw pictures showing the relationships between ideas.
1) Weekly/daily goals. One list for the day’s goals. Another for the week. No additions once the list is made, work until it’s finished. Simple, beautiful, effective.
2) Calendar. For tracking scheduled events (Google Calendar works great.)
3) Time logging. Every 6-12 months I like to run a time log, recording everything I spend time on. The results often help me eliminate the biggest drains on my time that don’t pay themselves back.
关于Time logging的文章我看到过不少了，改天可以总结下。真不忍心记录自己的Time log啊...都浪费在没有value的事情上了。
4) Weekly review. Once a week, I write not only my goals for the next week, but also my thoughts on how to overcome problems I’m facing in work and live. Solution brainstorming can make even terrifying problems feel actionable.
You don’t need a lot of tools to be effective, you just need to find the right tools and make them work for you.
It’s actually ridiculously easy. If you want to motivate yourself, spend 30-60 minutes brainstorming what you want from life and the action steps you need to take immediately to get there. If you aren’t motivated after a half-hour, you’ve done it wrong.
I feel confident when I’m giving a presentation. Not because I told myself I’d do well. Or because I triggered an emotional state. But because I’ve given hundreds of presentations, been the president of a Toastmasters club, pitched to venture capitalists. You can overcome your fears and flaws by gaining experience. Figure
out what the next step outside your comfort zone is and take it. Then take the next one, and the one following that. Be terrified enough to take action, but not so much that you never leave the couch.
3.其它关于健身/how to be more social的建议，由于我个人还没太多这方面的需求，就先不总结了。
