Ultralearning with Scott Young: How to Learn Skills Faster
Sep 05, 2019
Bryan Collins

Canadian writer Scott Young learnt the entire MIT computer science curriculum in just one year, travelled around the world for 12-months without speaking english and has taught himself creative skills like drawing portraits.

In his new book, Ultralearning: Master Hard Skills, Outsmart the Competition, and Accelerate Your Career, he's condensed what he and others have discovered about learning hard skills fast.

I recently caught up with Scott and in this interview, he reveals:

  • Why he decided to write a book about ultra-learning
  • How he approaches writing, research and self-editing
  • What new writers should do if they want to acquire skills like copywriting
  • The essential role of critical feedback for writers
  • What his writing and ideal early morning routine looks like

And lots more
