Canadian writer Scott Young learnt the entire MIT computer science curriculum in just one year, travelled around the world for 12-months without speaking english and has taught himself creative skills like drawing portraits.
In his new book, Ultralearning: Master Hard Skills, Outsmart the Competition, and Accelerate Your Career, he's condensed what he and others have discovered about learning hard skills fast.
I recently caught up with Scott and in this interview, he reveals:
- Why he decided to write a book about ultra-learning
- How he approaches writing, research and self-editing
- What new writers should do if they want to acquire skills like copywriting
- The essential role of critical feedback for writers
- What his writing and ideal early morning routine looks like
