What This is Course About

A four-year degree used to be a guarantee for a great career. Now it’s barely a foot in the door.

Tuition prices have skyrocketed. The pace of change has accelerated. Technology has transformed how we access information, but instead of making us all geniuses, we spend time battling trolls on Twitter.

This course offers an alternative. See if you learn this skill, you take your power back from the education system, you gain the ability to learn anything, and you don't need another person to tell you what to be learning. You become a self-directed learner in control of your own life.

In modern life there are a lot of skills that we need. We need to know how to navigate social relationships, get along with technology, stay informed about politics, obey laws, balance our finances, make smart career decisions, choose a healthy diet and about a million other little skills to help you thrive in today's world.

Of course, none of these skills actually matter if you aren't able to learn them effectively.

If you think about it, learning is the gateway skill to unlocking every other skill you need in life.

Here's the thing, at any point in your life did anyone actually teach you how to learn? How to best use the 10 pound mass of neurons and synapses you call your brain? How you can utilize it to learn anything you want?

When it comes to the most complex object you have in the universe, your brain, you're lucky if you even get a small hint about how it's used.

This is why so many of us might struggle when we're learning something, especially in school. We suffer through boredom as we're learning new material and we forget it after the exam anyways.

But with this course, I want to teach you the skills and techniques you can immediately start implementing into your life to reach your goals faster. And help you understand why it works in your brain so that you can learn any skill that you want.

This course is all about making use of your limited and valuable time in the right way so that as we continue to learn throughout your life, you are able to use the right learning techniques and strategies to make sure you are not wasting any of your time.

I want to help you become a self-directed learner and take your power back.

By doing so, you're going to become someone that can easily solve problems and make effective decisions about what to learn.

Now, of course, it's possible to be a completely self-directed learner and still decide to attend a particular school. Self-direction is about who is in the driver's seat for your learning project, not about where it takes place.

Instead of going back to school, learn the hard skills to get into a new career or make yourself indispensable in your current work. Rather than struggle to keep up, learn to adapt and thrive. Stop wasting time, and instead give your life new meaning and confidence by getting good at something you’ve always wanted to learn.

The beauty of learning how to learn is that if you learn it once, you can apply it over and over throughout your life.

Why should I learn how to learn?

Short answer: be more successful, faster.

Long answer:

We've all wanted the silver bullet to learning. Speed reading, nootropics, photographic memories.

But do these actually work?

What actually helps you to succeed in a world where we have more and more information accessible to us, and more new things to learn every day?

Whether you want to call yourself a super learner, a productivity master, or a genius, the answer is that there is no easy tricks.

It requires going down a path of mastery.

But there are things you can do to avoid making the same mistakes others have made in the past (sorry, no speed reading in this course because it doesn't actually make you a better learner).

So what does make me a better learner? How does this course make me more successful?

This course covers only topics and techniques that are scientifically proven. Everything in the course is based on research from dozens of books and numerous scientific studies to guarantee success in your learning. I link and source every claim that I make.

You’ll master the ancient techniques that have been used by Nobel prize winning physicists, business moguls, world record holders, competitive memory athletes, and country leaders to unlock the incredible capacity of the human brain.

Most importantly, you’ll be empowered to confidently approach any subject—from technical skills, to academic knowledge, to problem solving, and even teaching others—and learn it with ease.

Using these approaches, no matter what your skill levels in topics you would like to master, you can change your thinking and change your life.

Here’s the secret... Nobody is born smart.

We all start at zero.

There was a time where the people you want to become, the people you respect, the people that are your teachers, couldn’t count to 10.

Unlike in the past where learning was all about going to school to learn one thing, then getting a job and then retiring. Things are different now.

You need to constantly learn new things and acquire new skills.

So you need to know how to choose the right topics and the right subjects in a world that's constantly changing and has more information than anybody can consume in a lifetime.

You need a roadmap, a framework, a path to mastering the exact skills you need to reach your goals.

In order to succeed in this day and age, you can’t just expect to do what everybody else does.

You need to train your brain and you need to learn how to learn.

What's the bottom line?

The How to Learn Anything course is a 34 day program that teaches scientifically proven techniques to help you learn anything faster and more effectively.

You need zero prior experience to take the course — everything you need to know is explained step-by-step in this training program.

One of the best parts of this course (and all Plato University courses) is that you won't be learning alone.

By enrolling for FREE today, you’ll also get to join our exclusive live online community of dedicated lifelong learners. You'll get to learn and grow alongside passionate learners and ask questions of instructors.

And you will also get worksheets, exercises, extra resources, and most importantly, the tools necessary to actually implement the techniques that you'll learn.

If you're reading this, you are the type of person who likes taking initiative and improving their abilities to become a better version of themselves. The good news is that you already have the drive you need. Many people don't.

Now, you just need to make sure you learn the right tools and strategies for you to have real success in life.

We can’t predict what will happen in 10 years. We can’t predict what careers will be valuable in 10 years.

However, what we do know is that the ability to learn more efficiently than your colleagues will be a main competitive advantage of the future.

I can confidently say that this is the best, most comprehensive learning course out there... but hey, you can try out the course and decide for yourself.

It's time for you to take control of your learning, master any skill, and achieve success.

Ultimately he had no meaning, impact, or sense of purpose in his life. Since then, he's surrounded himself with and learned from dozens of social entrepreneurs making a difference in the world, built half a decade of experience as a designer, marketer, and educator for mission driven companies, and built educational programs that have reached over 80,000 people.
