Study Skills: Strategies for Reading Textbooks by Education Corner (5min)
We learn best when we move from general to specific. Previewing and developing a big picture of a text before reading will enable you to better identify what's important as you read and make it possible for you to retain the detail. Preview, Question, Reflect, Highlight, Recount, and Review.

Parsing Out the Truth As the Truth Will Set You Free: Facing Painful Reality by Marvin Liao (3min)
Facing painful reality is hard but pays off later if you have the courage to do so. Founders' job is to talk to as many potential customers and users as possible and look for patterns and things that come up over and over again. When facing hard reality, don't ignore it and lie to yourself. “Hope is not a strategy.” Wanting something to be true does not make it so.
