Over this past weekend I conducted an interview with Cal Newport, who runs the fantastic study skills / hacks blog entitled Study Hacks, find it here. You should definitely check it out, as I have been learning from his study methods for a long time.
Anyway, the interview was for an upcoming book he is writing, and it was a lot of fun. We talked about the strategies I have used in the past to reduce stress, manage my time efficiently, and enjoy life all at the same time. Briefly, these included utilizing web 2.0 technologies for time management, hiking four days per week for stress relief, and networking to open opportunities. More details about my interview I will save for Cal to write about in the Focus section of his book.
I am pretty excited about it and I really hope what I told Cal on Sunday will help out current high school students who are in the same situations I have only recently moved on from.
Also, feel free to check out both of his books that are already out, and help me and him pay the bills at the same time. They are incredibly useful.
