      A simple read on a simple fact that seems so difficult before you actually begin.

      “So, the most important thing is just to learn how to educate yourself and the way to educate yourself is to develop a love for reading.”

      Such a powerful read on the beauty of learning by reading. If this doesn't have you jacked to use Readup day-in and day-out I am not too sure what will!

      So, you have to make sure that you’re building on a steel frame of understanding because you’re putting together a foundation for skyscraper, and you’re not just memorizing things because you’re just memorizing things you’re lost. So the foundations are ultra important.

      The emphasis on the foundations of your learning is critical to your understanding of your given field in which you hope to learn. I have often been told the best place to start is by reading the biography of the thinker in whose work you are set to undertake in order to fully grasp their upbringing background to understand potential biases and so forth.

      So you may start off reading fiction, then you might graduate to science fiction, then you may graduate to non-fiction, then you may graduate to science, or philosophy, or mathematics or whatever it is, but take your natural path and just read the things that interest you until you kind of understand them. And then you’ll naturally move to the next thing and the next thing and the next thing.
