#88: Scott Young — Author of “Ultralearning: Master Hard Skills, Outsmart the Competition, and Accelerate Your Career,” Entrepreneur, and Programmer

Bring It In | The Future of Work, Jobs, and Education

Think it’s impossible to complete and pass a 4 year MIT course, in just 1 year? Not for Scott Young. He’s the author of "Ultralearning: Master Hard Skills, Outsmart the Competition, and Accelerate Your Career", where he shares how he managed to turn 4 years of learning into 1. It’s a technique he calls “Ultralearning,” an aggressive, self-directed method that helped him master self portraiture in a month– and it’s helping him learn his wife’s native language right now. Over the course of his book, Scott shares the scientific basis for his techniques, as well as sharing the stories of a few other “Ultralearners.” A poor public speaker who becomes a Toastmasters Top 10 Finalist, someone who acquires language mastery with ease, and a man who won the French Scrabble Championships: without speaking French. If you’re looking to train, upskill, or prepare your people, our conversation with Scott is one you’re not going to want to miss. Let’s bring it in!

Ultralearning: How to Master Hard Skills and Accelerate Your Career with Scott Young

Leaders of Analytics

There is so much to learn! If you’re anything like me, you’re overwhelmed by the number of books, articles, podcasts, online and offline courses, webinars and other training opportunities out there. Today, we’re not short of learning materials, but often lack the time and capacity to learn new things. But what if there’s a better way to learn? Enter the concept of “Ultralearning”, coined by best-selling author Scott Young. A few years ago, I read Scott’s book Ultralearning and it changed my life. Not only did Scott’s approach to learning increase my learning rate significantly, it also made the process a lot more enjoyable overall!  Scott is an impressive Ultralearner who has used his advanced learning strategies to complete a 4-year computer science degree in 12 months, learn languages such as Spanish, Chinese, Korean and Macedonian and become a decent portrait artist. And then he’s written a book about it. In this episode of Leaders of Analytics, you will learn: How Scott has used his learning principles to master very complex and diverse skills in a very short time How we learn and retain information How we can structure our learning to faster absorption and better retention How Scott designs a learning strategy from scratch Whether Malcolm Gladwell’s “10,000 hour rule” is true or BS Strategies for learning hard and soft skills, and much more.
