Learning is an essential and lifelong activity. The most successful people in the world are always lifelong learners. It requires the ability to reflect on your mistakes, a lot of reading, and testing what you know. This newsletter will give you three articles to help your learning. (You can read this online!)

πŸ“š 3 Good Articles for You

by Anne-Laure Le Cunff (5min)
We spend years of our lives attending school, but there are many life skills missing from the typical curriculum.

by James Clear (2min)
It can be easy to spend your life complaining about the opportunities that are withheld from us and the resources that we need to make our goals a reality. But there is an alternative. You can use your constraints to drive creativity. You can embrace your limitations to foster skill development. The problem is rarely the opportunities we have, but how we use them.

by Nat Eliason (5min)

But he realized that 80% of it was a waste of time, and most people make the same mistake with how they consume information every day. In this article, he shares his insights and experience on how to read books and articles effectively.
