How much of what you learned in school do you actually use in your life?
Were those 12 years you spent going to school for nothing?

Is it possible to only learn the important stuff and discard the rest to make things easier?

We will answer these very questions AND in addition, I have added a cherry on the Sunday at the end of the episode
Some very controversial stuff that many have tried to censor for years but I still decided to share (despite the risks)
Here is one of my favorite quotes:
“The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.”

I have compressed years of trials and errors, into easy to consume episodes, to take you from where you are now, to where you want to be.
I spent the day checking something out. It's actually very interesting, something I've had for years, a course on something.
Back when I watched it the first time, at the time I had actually zero interest in actually doing this, like pursuing whatever is in the course, because I was like, oh, that's really not me. I'm really not interested. And what's fascinating is that now, since I'm interested to know more, the course is just genius.
And I'm just wondering how, you know, because of the lack of interest that I had, I wasn't able to see how good it was, you know? So it's very revealing. It's something that actually surprised me.
The level of interest that you have for a subject will actually have a super huge impact on how you learn. If you have zero interest in it, you're not going to learn or retain anything because there is resistance. So that's the reason why a lot of people will tell you, well, you should make a career out of something you're interested in because it does make things easier.
So it's like did how did I miss the genius in this course? It's really insane. Fascinating stuff. But, yeah, it's not the not necessarily the point of the podcast, but here's the thing.
Sometimes I hear people saying, oh, well, you know, I learned this and it’s completely useless. I learned this in school. School doesn't teach you this and blah, blah, blah. All the moaners will tell you about the education system that it sucks and all that kind of stuff. Or you just think that for this thing, I wasted my time completely.
And for me, my take is that you never actually waste your time learning something because it could very well be that at the time, either you had no interest or you didn't have enough background knowledge of the connecting subjects to wrap your brain around it.
How NOT to “waste” your time learning useless information
OK, so it did happen to me. So all that knowledge that you have acquired, it's never lost. It's never for nothing, because one day you will realize that you basically get a new piece of the puzzle. It's a puzzle.
You have like millions of pieces and well, in the beginning, you don't have a single piece. But then what happens is that you start getting more pieces and then you're like, wait a minute. And then you go back to this thing and everything starts making sense.
OK, so one of the things that I want to tell you and I’m just repeating myself is don't think that any stuff that you learn is useless. It's never useless. Never, because it will serve you one day when you don't necessarily expect it. It has done it for me millions of times.
So you've heard that your network is your net worth, and that you should be networking with people and meeting people who are good in specific fields.
OK, so people find it really hard to go and talk to someone who is in a completely different niche or something. One thing that I found was that sometimes I'm studying some concept. I'm not an expert in it.
So that means that if I meet someone who's an expert in that field, I can have some sort of a conversation with them saying, oh, you know what, I actually heard about this and I'm actually very interested in knowing more. And you're an expert in it. Can you kind of like, elaborate?
And, you know, one thing that actually people absolutely love is when you are interested in what they do, OK, if someone I mean, what they're passionate about and what they do and stuff, because very often what happens is, you know, most of the time is that this guy, let's say this guy or this woman, they're interested in astrophysics.
And they go to. Parties, they go to blah, blah, blah, and they start talking about all these really complicated metaphysical concepts and people are like, oh what?
And then you will just stand up and say, oh yeah, astrophysics. Oh, do you know the concept of cornealious blah? And they'll be like, whoa, wow, I never meet someone who's actually interested in what I do. I'm passionate about it. And they and they can start talking to you for the longest time.
You haven't done anything in particular. It's just that information that you have acquired some time ago that you thought was completely useless, in these cases, it will come in handy.
