Three Steps To Get Up To Speed On Any Subject Quickly – Psychology of Stuff
You have just a few days to learn everything there is to know about a subject you know nothing about. Now what?
By Nir Eyal

I’ve been doing this one with the calculus in my machine learning class, just going through each part of the equation or code and writing out in words what it does, and it really helps: 

Write out everything you know about the subject as if you were teaching it to someone else. Not your smart friend but rather a toddler. This may sound silly, but this part is incredibly important and has worked wonders for me learning new things.

But the tips on how to fucking google shit and actually learn from it are also invaluable. Tumblr users may be surprised to know that you can actually look things up on google, and find information that can contradict the assumptions your own brain has leapt to on its own!

Buddhism Level 1 Six-week Course starts - Manchester Buddhist Centre
Learn about the Buddha’s message and the basics of meditation in a friendly course over six Tuesday evenings.

Though I’ve read a lot about Buddhism, I’ve decided to enrol on this course in the hope of gaining a greater understanding - it might be that I should have enrolled on the Level 2 course, however there’s no harm in going over things we already know. These last couple of months have seen a lot of upheaval in my life and I’ve temporarily relocated to Manchester from South Wales, following the end of a relationship. As well as learning more about Buddhism, I’m also hoping to make new friends. There are still spaces on this course, if anyone in the Manchester area is interested.
