Isn’t it crazy how many parallels there are between Seduction and regular life? There really is no such thing as a “natural.” That’s another one of the reasons I’m so glad that I found this community.Good suggestion, @The_411
Here's some articles that you might want to check out, Nick.
Here are links to a very simple productivity system. I use this. I could certainly do more of the 2nd one. But the idea here is just to keep it simple. No complex system. No integrated apps. It can all be done with a piece of paper. I do this every morning. Hope it helps.
I know you're reading other things and doing a lot of other stuff, so squeezing Cal's books in probably isn't the best right now. But, the books all stemmed from his original research for the blog 'Study Hacks' (linked) where he outlines Zen Valedictorian methods - which I've read extensively and read from time to time (today, I re-read two on focusing and developing a focused work habit). So if you're struggling with something in particular, lmk. I'm sure I can link an article that you can read quickly instead of having to read through his books.
To expand on 411's post; some people might seem like geniuses. They seem like they have it all together. It seems 'natural' like they were just born with it. Hmm... where have I heard that before? But the truth of the matter is: "all men are created equal, some work harder in pre-season". They didn't become geniuses (acquire the ability to learn hard things quickly, which Cal talks about extensively) out of the blue. There was a time in their life where they learned this skill and now it seems natural - you just don't know about it. Just like naturals in getting women.
And alright, you’ve convinced me haha. I’ll check out some of Cal Newport’s books. They’ll still be very applicable to me because I have a good amount of time left in college. And I’d honestly prefer the book, I love reading. I just found out that if I want Elite Waves I’m gonna have to brush anywhere from 1-2 hours a day. I pass the time with audiobooks so I can learn and increase my knowledge while I get Wavy.
Which one do you recommend I start with? “How to Win at College” seemed pretty interesting
