One of the best ways to save time is to know who to call… or e-mail… or read online… you get the idea.
That’s why I’ll periodically introduce you to other time strategists with special expertise.
To kick off the resources section, I’d like to introduce you to the one–the only–Cal Newport.
If you are a high school, college, or graduate student, or you ever have to study for anything from an insurance test to a certification exam, you will benefit from reading Cal’s blog: Study Hacks: Demystifying Student Success.
Cal is an incredibly smart (think fourth year PhD student at MIT–yikes!) individual who is also incredibly savvy. Like me, Cal doesn’t think that you have to sacrifice your sanity to be successful. Study Hacks offers practical, relevant advice on how to plan your life, and particularly your studying.
How did Cal gather his expertise?
A: Personal Experience
B: Extensive Research
Correct response: Both A & B
Cal is the author of How to Win at College and How to Become a Straight-A Student, and he has a third publication on the way. You know Cal is the real deal because he writes a blog and books to help others succeed as a side gig to his graduate studies at MIT.
I highly recommend that you check out Study Hacks and join the thousands of people (like me) who have subscribed to his RSS feed.
To studying brilliance in 2009!
