Stuff to learn in my free time
Один ответ на Кворе 1 стал вот последним катализатором, все это крутилось в голове уже пару лет, настало время формализировать это, пусть с “крутилось в голове” это станет конкретным чеклистом. Потом (но потом) — конкретными планами уровня “до конца месяца я учу Х”
- Learning how to learn
- That Coursera course
- A couple of books on the topic
- Re-read “The art of learning”
- Mental frameworks
- “Теория практического мышления” — законспектировать
- Systems theory
- Grok “Thinking in systems – a primer” — тоже законспектировать и запостить сюда
- Много думать об этом in real life, искать примеры, наблюдать за миром from the perspective of a systems theorist
- See https://www.farnamstreetblog.com/mental-models/ and research them
- Make a big post here with the full list and good explanations
- From this answer about being an expert-generalist there’s “Poor Charlie’s Almanack: The Wit and Wisdom of Charles T. Munger” (goodreads)
- Polya — “How to solve it”
- Adler — “How to read a book”
- Game theory and rationality
- Improve my memory
- Productivity and stuff
- I hear good things about “Deep Work: Rules for Focused Success in a Distracted World” (“These books should be taken together as a whole because they give you the WHAT, the WHY and the HOW for being an elite knowledge worker.”)
- “Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity”, a legend
- Philosophy, the very basics; Psychology, the very basics.
- Leaving aside the “everything worth doing is worth doing well”, my old project of “reading from the very beginning” is still okay; I’ll need time, but I will do it.
- BUT the absolute priority in this is to reread and rethink Seneca and Marcus Aurelius
All this on a thread by itself. I will work on my professional skills independently; that means mostly social engineering and infosec. For infosec there’s this, for SE I should at least working in my uni courses.
I mention a lot of books which, traditionally, I would need to buy in paperback to be able to highlight and write on them. Bad on finances, but the 10% rule is still with me; also, objectively/strategically speaking, it’s a very good investment in my future.
Speaking of books: https://www.quora.com/What-are-some-books-that-expand-our-mind/answer/Marcus-Geduld (“What are some books that expand our mind”) — a very thorough answer.
