  • You have to schedule your time. Don't

  • just stuff studying in to cracks in your

  • schedule. Your schedule should be built

  • around studying. What does this mean? This

  • means have an exact set time during the

  • day when you start to study. For me, I

  • remember it was about 6:00 p.m. I would

  • always say to myself, okay 6:00 p.m. I

  • get back from school, I rest a little bit and then

  • at 6:00 p.m. that's my study time. It

  • starts. How long does it go? Well, that

  • depends on how much assignments and

  • homework I have but it would go for at

  • least an hour or two and sometimes would

  • go for four or five or six hours and it

  • would start at 6:00 and it would

  • usually end like around 9:00 or 10:00 or

  • or after that and it would vary but I

  • think what's really important to have

  • that starting time 6:00 no matter what

  • 6:00.

  • Sit down and study. Open the books, sit

  • down

  • study. It doesn't have to be 6:00 for you

  • just come up with your own time and

  • you're doing this every single day.

  • What's important about this is that it

  • leads us to the next point which is you

  • have to get comfortable and you have to

  • slow yourself down in order to study

  • effectively. You can't rush the studying

  • process and one of the secrets that I

  • use is simply brute force. Right? A lot of

  • the issues as a student that I dealt

  • with, the things that I couldn't

  • understand I just brute forced them through

  • repetition and this repetition can take

  • time. Also, you know, you have to be

  • patient with yourself. Sometimes you're

  • not going to understand the problem

  • right off the bat so you just kind of

  • repeat it, repeat it, mull it over,

  • mull it over and that means sometimes

  • you, it takes you longer so instead of

  • finishing a quick little math assignment

  • in an hour, it might take you three hours

  • but that's worth it if you calm yourself

  • down. Get comfortable, slow yourself down

  • kind of open yourself to absorbing this

  • information, alright. This is where the

  • love it comes in. If you don't love it

  • and what you're doing is you're just

  • kind of rush studying through stuff just

  • to learn it, like cramming for an exam

  • that's just horrible. That's horrible

  • because all you're trying to do is

  • you're jumping, you're like a dog jumping

  • through hoops. That's basically what you

  • are when you're doing that because

  • you're saying yourself well I gotta pass

  • this exam in order to get into college, to

  • get grades, so my parents like me.

  • That's just hoops like a dog you're

  • jumping through. Don't do that. Instead

  • what you think about is like this. Okay this

  • subject matter is really fascinating. Let

  • me study more. Let me learn more. I want

  • to know how math interconnects with, with

  • history and I want to know how history

  • connects with science and I want to

  • know how this and this connect and I

  • want to know more depth about this thing

  • here. That's how you got to think. I don't

  • think there's any magic in being

  • successful and I'm not talking about

  • making a million dollars or a billion

  • dollars. I'm just talking about being

  • successful. I'm talking about being

  • successful in what you guys do at work. I

  • don't think there's any magic. You got to

  • work hard

  • you gotta respect the people around you

  • and you just gotta go. I've never met a

  • successful person that doesn't work hard.

  • There are two rules that I always adhere

  • to and that is to work hard and be brave

  • and I think the essence of hard work is

  • one that's pretty straightforward. It's

  • that you'll never be the best-looking

  • you'll never be the tallest, most

  • talented, most capable, you'll never have

  • the most money, there will always be

  • someone who's better at whatever you're

  • doing then what, than you are but you can

  • always be the hardest-working person in

  • the room and I think the hardest-working

  • person will always win.

  • Who must you become in order to create

  • what you want? What has to change about

  • you?

  • What is it that you're doing right now that

  • would be a liability for you? As you

  • begin to look toward the future and take

  • inventory of yourself, what is it about

  • you right now

  • that you've got to leave this behind

  • because this no longer fits. Looking at

  • where you want to go and the kind of

  • person that you must become, the kind of

  • standards that you have for you, what is

  • it that you must do differently? Clear your

  • mind of all distractions. I used to hold

  • the record for the fastest to memorize a

  • deck of cards in the United States and some

  • times before I would memorize a deck

  • of cards my brain would be worried about

  • things in my life or things that were

  • going on so what I would do to clear my

  • mind of all distractions is I would

  • close my eyes and I would visualize

  • those scenarios the way that I wish they

  • were or the way that I hope they would

  • be one day and then I would open my eyes, I

  • would be relieved of that stress and

  • then I would memorize a deck of cards.

  • Clear your mind of all distractions

  • maybe close your eyes and visualize the

  • things the way you wish they could be

  • and then focus on your studying. Depending

  • on how well you want to do, particularly if you're

  • starting a company you need to work

  • super hard. So, what does super hard mean? Well,

  • when my brother and I were starting our

  • first company instead of getting an

  • apartment we just rented a small office

  • and we slept on the couch and we showered

  • at the YMCA and we were so hard up we had

  • just one computer so the website was up

  • during the day and I was coding at night.

  • For seven days a week, all the time and I so

  • briefly had a girlfriend in that period and

  • in order to be with me she had to sleep in

  • the office. So, work hard like

  • it, I mean, every waking hour. That's, that's

  • the thing I would, I would say if you

  • particularly if you're starting a company

  • and I mean if you do simple math, you say

  • like okay if somebody else is working 50

  • hours and you're working a hundred

  • you'll get twice as done, as much done in

  • the course of a year as the other

  • company. If you want to learn something

  • faster you must first and foremost know

  • the connection between what you want to

  • learn and your dream life. Your real life

  • style that you want to have. I tell people

  • all the time like don't just come up

  • with things you want to learn because

  • guess what, we want to learn everything.

  • By human build, we are curious animals.

  • We're deathly curious. I mean we are

  • literally the curiosity killed the cat

  • sort of society right now. Everyone wants

  • to learn 50 new things immediately but

  • no one ever learns anything. Why? Because

  • it's not real for them it's a transient

  • desire. If you want to become a great

  • learner it has to be attached to a dream

  • life of yours. A true, a true lifestyle that you

  • see for yourself.

You have to schedule your time. Don't
