A Study Hacks PrimerNovember 20th, 2009 · 32 comments
My friend Ramit, from the exceptional I Will Teach You To Be Rich blog, just published a guest post I wrote about fixed-schedule productivity (the idea that you should fix your ideal schedule, and then work backwards to meet it). If you’re a fan of this philosophy, you’ll love the guest post, which extends my original article with a series of in-depth profiles.
