Summary of “How Elon Musk Learns Faster And Better Than Everyone Else”

Based on my review of Musk’s life and the academic literature related to learning and expertise, I’m convinced that we should ALL learn across multiple fields in order to increase our odds of breakthrough success.
Elon Musk is also good at a very specific type of learning that most others aren’t even aware of - learning transfer.
Learning transfer is taking what we learn in one context and applying it to another.
At the deepest level, what we can learn from Elon Musk’s story is that we shouldn’t accept the dogma that specialization is the best or only path toward career success and impact.
If we put in the time and learn core concepts across fields and always relate those concepts back to our life and the world, transferring between areas becomes much easier and faster.
As we build up a reservoir of “First principles” and associate those principles with different fields, we suddenly gain the superpower of being able to go into a new field we’ve never learned before, and quickly make unique contributions.
Understanding Elon’s learning superpowers helps us gain some insight into how he could go into an industry that has been around for more than 100 years and change the whole basis of how the field competes.

Summary of “How To Learn In 2 Days What Normally Takes 6 Months”

Research has found that self-directed learning is highly correlated with learning satisfaction.
Said Albert Einstein, “That is the way to learn the most, that when you are doing something with such enjoyment that you don’t notice that the time passes.”
Students at the MTC learn in a few weeks what takes most college students three or four years.
If you want to learn something quickly, you need to immerse yourself in that thing and immediately implement what you’re learning.
The fastest way to learn Spanish is by immersing yourself in a Spanish culture.

Summary of “A Career Retrospective-10 years working in tech”

Each time the computer has to choose an action, it’ll choose based on a probability model for the current state of the game.
As the computer wins and loses, it’ll increase the probabilities of each action it took when it won, and decrease the probabilities for each action it took when it lost.
With enough iterations, the computer goes through enough different combinations of circumstances that it can eventually figure out which of the individual actions were beneficial.
So using the SDK, and video feed collected by ASIMO, we could detect if the human working with ASIMO on a task was pleased or frustrated with the robot.
My favorite thing about working in this lab was all the interesting projects I’d see my coworkers doing.
It makes me feel like every weird tangent i’ve taken in my career path, had a purpose and brought me to the point where I’m combining two of my favorite things, art and technology, and getting to do that every day, with the purpose of making computer science more accessible and inclusive.
In thinking about the unifying theme of everything that I work on or do, why I do everything that I do-I was talking to a friend on twitter about why we got into computer science in the first place.
As a result of all of those experiences, a lot of that magic i used to feel about computers as a kid has disappeared for me.

Summary of “How Elon Musk learns faster and better than everyone else”

Based on my review of Musk’s life and the academic literature related to learning and expertise, I’m convinced that we should all learn across multiple fields in order to increase our odds of breakthrough success.
Musk’s “Learning transfer” superpower Starting from his early teenage years, Musk would read through two books per day in various disciplines according to his brother, Kimbal Musk.
Musk is also good at a very specific type of learning that most others aren’t even aware of - learning transfer.
Learning transfer is taking what we learn in one context and applying it to another.
If we put in the time and learn core concepts across fields and always relate those concepts back to our life and the world, transferring between areas becomes much easier and faster.

Summary of “Successful People Are Not Necessarily Smarter. They Just Do More Of This.”

Professor Barbara Oakley, co-instructor of Learning How To Learn - the largest course in the entire world in any subject - has this to say about chunking: “I’m becoming increasingly convinced that ‘chunking’ is the mother of all learning - or at least the fairy godmother Creating neural patterns - ’neural chunks’ - underpins the development of all expertise.”
Over time, you continued additional levels of chunks.
When you build more and more complex chunks upon chunks, you gain new abilities.
Has memorized tens of thousands of complex chunks: still a large number, but much more tenable!Is able to automatically and rapidly access those chunks through his intuition.
Just how important chunking is was discovered in a landmark study.
Notice how Wolff describes the feeling when he’s chunking.
Some people are hardwired to learn these chunks faster.

Summary of “Let Go of the Learning Baggage”

Why? In part, because we layer our social values on top and end up with a hot mess of guilt and fear that stymies the learning process.
We can’t maximize the time we spend learning because our feelings about what we ‘should’ be doing get in the way.
If we are learning for work, then in our brains learning = work.
If we are not learning, then we are not working.
Can we change how we approach learning, letting go of the guilt associated with not being visibly active, and embrace what seems counter-intuitive?
Barbara Oakley explains in A Mind for Numbers: How to Excel at Math and Science that our brain has two general modes of thinking – ‘focused’ and ‘diffuse’ – and both of these are valuable and required in the learning process.
So if we are doing any of these ‘play’ activities at work, which are invisible in terms of their contribution to the learning process, we feel guilty because we don’t believe we are doing what we get paid to do.
If you aren’t the CEO or the VP of HR, you can’t magic a policy that says ‘all employees shall do something meaningful away from their desks each day and won’t be judged for it’, so what can you do to learn better at work? Find a way to let go of the guilt baggage when you invest in proven, effective learning techniques that are out of sync with your corporate culture.

Summary of “6 Facts That Will Clear Up Your Confusing Life”

I got a degree in broadcast journalism, failed in that field after less than two years, took a series of minimum-wage office jobs, attempted to go back to college, washed out, put myself deep in debt to earn several PC repair certifications, failed to get a job doing that, all the while spending 30-40 hours of my spare time writing comedy on the internet for no pay.
In the few years before Cracked hired me as an editor, I had gotten turned down for jobs working in a Social Security office and a UPS warehouse, and considered myself lucky to have worked my way up to being the lowest-level supervisor in an insurance company’s data entry center.
You know what? In this ridiculous job, I’ve wound up using every bit of that shit.
The ability to research and fact-check, write on a deadline, create and manage spreadsheets, give clear quality control feedback, and to adapt to an industry that abruptly changes every six months.
Hkuchera/iStockAnd there’s nothing like learning to fight off genital-eating wolves to prep you for online feedback.
As far as I can tell, that’s all you can do – keep trying, keep learning from your mistakes, keep listening to other people in order to learn from theirs.
Most importantly of all, realize that you’re not lost in the woods waiting for your life to start.
This is your life, and some of the shit you hate now is the same shit you’ll miss later.

Summary of “8 Habits of Incredibly Interesting People”

Some people are naturally interesting, but there are also ways to learn to be more engaging.
He’s so good at making things interesting that he doesn’t just teach accounting, he also gives lectures on how to be more interesting.
Anyone can learn to become more interesting, which is a wonderful thing, because being interesting can help you strengthen your network, win more clients, and lead more effectively.
There are several habits that many interesting people have in common.
Interesting people don’t just have interests; they have passions, and they devote themselves completely to them.
There’s often nothing wrong with what everyone else is doing; it’s just that interesting people are innovators who break conformity to pursue new, exciting, and yes, interesting ideas.
Interesting people are interesting because they feel out their conversational partner to see what sparks that person’s interest.
