He became a voracious reader and learned to used the (growing) resources available to facilitate his education. He connects the dots to improve his understanding of the subjects that elude him, while focusing on creating the kind of content that is enriching and insightful. His new book Connect the Dots is all about how to do this.

    This is really a fascinating, honest snapshot of what I think lots of youth want to do, but don’t.

    Man I really appreciated this episode. It happened to be the first time I’ve heard Beyond the To-Do List. It was a story incredibly similar to my own.

    Really enjoyed the podcast but I would have enjoyed it so much more if the two of you didn’t use the word “like” so often. I don’t think you guys want to sound like valley girls. Awesome was a close second.
