Thank you so much for what you do! I'm still new to your channel and this way of thinking. But I was wondering if using an AI to build an optimized curriculum for learning any given topic would be possible?

I love this video too much, added to favorites! Will reference when I need to kick my butt into shape again. Big props for helping us autodidacts. I feel like I learned more between dropping out of high school (16) and before rejoining school by 18, than I did at 18, private high school and uni 4-5 years after. Strange right? I need to find my autodidact mojo again, didn't realize you were that much of one. Big props man!

Why quit on it? Maybe redesign how your time and energy is spent and instead of dedicating 2 hours per day you can do 20 minutes? Sure, will take longer, but I think in the long run you will regret more never having tried. I would say: regardless of the situation you may be in, do the best you can do with what you have; no more, no less.

I dropped out of university as well because I felt that I was learning WAY more by myself than at a school that's lessons were stuck in the past. Since dropping out things kind of got bad that I started to move away from the thing I used to love, writing code. I think it's got to do with my family not believing in me and still think that university is the way to go. Anyway, an amazing opportunity came up that lit a fire inside of me and now I'm slowly getting back on the right track. I'm glad I stumbled upon this video. Thanks Siraj

As for the meditation and cardio, should my focus for time be strict? Like, should I use a stopwatch or do meditation/ cardio as long as I feel like?

I really liked this video. I think school is a GREAT place to learn but it is not the only place. Everyone should have a few subjects they are learning on their own and these optimisation techniques are great! Thanks!

Hi Siraj, is there a way to get the order in which to binge watch your videos? I've looked up quite a few already but each time it seems another one could have come before because the concepts they use are intertwined.

Since I am probably left with a summer of research and self learning, I wanted a better way to make sure it will work out, so I found your video very useful! Thank you I have a question on distraction though: I found myself spending too much time managing the various learning resources (websites videos syllabi tutorials githubs). Now that avoiding multitasking on them and getting a 2h study frame per day are good practices to build a habit around, but any thoughts on this problem? Anyone experiencing the same?

Whats your approach to become a competitive programmer from a beginner? I have tried using Spoj, hackerearth and hackerrank but I find myself constantly looking for solutions.
Bosco's Life Online (1 month ago)
Learn from those solutions. What did they do right that you didn't? Can that precise idea be used somewhere else? If so, does it need any adaptation? Can you scale it?

Michael Williams I have no idea about community college, I applied as a mature adult with work history/experience and a personal competency statement. In my lead up I would say get your head around maths methods (Kahn academy is sweet). One of my first units is stats, which has a bridging course in maths. A bit later I have two more units of maths… Other than that, I don't have any advice so I hope someone else chimes in for you :)

I would like to get a bachelors in computer science one day as well. Any advice for someone who still needs to go through a community college first?

How would you apply this technique to programming where you have to learn very specific sets of commands?
Shimon Doodkin (1 month ago)
learning is about putting out correctly. not putting in. it aids putting in efficiently and effectively it is curious that some people teach themselves like speak to them selves as they explain it to them selves
Shimon Doodkin (1 month ago)
good idea: the motor cortex is aids memory.
Shimon Doodkin (1 month ago)
make notes what you want, and put them on visible place. people forget the feeling that made them want something after 4 days. memory is based on cholesterol Vesicles containing neurotransmitters. then brain rewire. it there was sleep. external lipids (of cholesterol Vesicles ) is not a strong substance and it is washed out easily.after few days.

I'm a fan of your channel... but terms like "thought leader" and moving your hands and punctuating your speech in that stereotypical TEDtalk way... it's REALLY irritating. It undermines your credibility and makes you seem pretentious and scammy... even if it, at some point, was a good technique, it's now so overused and satirized that it really only makes you look foolish. I'm not trolling of just leaving a mean comment, I'm an actual fan and subscriber. Just trying to help. Your video kept reminding me of this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ZBKX-6Gz6A

Watching Something at 3x speed is not learning . 3x speed is good for revision when you have already learned it . the goal is to learn particular topic not watching it . learning is done through practise , asking question clearing underline concepts ,taking notes , involve in topic in some physical way , the point is if you not prepare right it fast time than rest of life you will be reparing it 😡😈

I would like to add something. It's important to reactivate memories in order to reconsolidate them (stabilize them again). Memory strengthening has been proposed as one of the possible biological role of reconsolidation (by the way I'm researcher in neuroscience of memory). https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0928425714000448

Hi, boys. I have a Big Data doubt and I find this place the better to solve it. Last January I taught a Big Data for Social Media course. Were 8 sessions of 2 hours each friday. The topic was basically how to extract, manipulate and present data from social media APIs like Facebook, Twitter, Google Maps, YouTube, etc, using R software. I set the total price of the course at 42 USD. I know was a bargain but was my first course and only for undergraduated students. What could be a "market price" for such course? Thanks in advance.

*1. Strongly believe in your learning ability* *2. Create your own Curriculum* *3. Avoid multi-tasking* *4. Meditation * to calm down your mind and thereby boost focus *5. Constant Cardio* by exercising during breaks *6. Dependency Parsing* by filling the blanks you don't know *7. Handwriting Notes* for better memory encoding *8. Teach* like in Feynman technique *9. Eat well* or don't even try *10. Sleep well* or die P.S.: Speed reading with such tools doesn't work and is debunked.

This video motivates me as i am studying Python, data science and machine learning nearly a month. I can get understanding if I practice with codes (which i dont understand them all). Im not from comp science or math stats, but from social science disciplines and very much interest at this study. This video very motivates me. If i could request you, please explain us in wich field that data science could be implemented. Thank you Siraj
