Personal Learning Hack

One of my personal goals is to acquire knowledge daily. I focus on knowledge related to concepts I want to better understand so I can attempt to develop unique insights about them.

One of my favorite tools for consuming knowledge is YouTube. I subscribe to the premium membership to avoid ads and to access extra features. I start by deciding what concept I want to understand better. Then I identify people who have a deep understanding of it and search for videos of them sharing their knowledge. I add those videos to my watch list. During my daily treadmill walk, I watch these videos (usually at 1.5X speed to challenge myself). I’ve found that consuming videos while walking is the best fit for me. It feels productive, as I’m exercising and learning at the same time.

I’m a fan of the YouTube platform. It’s been a helpful tool in my quest to learn daily.
