By reading, watching videos online, and learning to use Google, I hacked my own education

Learning to learn was my secret weapon

Ever since I was a kid, I as curious

I enjoyed being outdoors. Looking at anything I saw. Nothing special in school but I did alright.

I was never the smartest person in the room

But quickly learned that this was actually my secret weapon

While everybody else learned math. I learned curiousity

When everybody learned physics. I learned to learn.

This was my ultimate trump card.

I didn't "need" school to teach me anything. I could trade in my learning for any skill or knowledge.

While many can't get through Coursera

I thrive on online courses and the like. I thrive on books. I can't live without them.

I may have started slower

but my learning curve was exponential from there. Something most can't say

Learning to learn was the best decision of my life

This story is so informative...and even I thrive on books... These days people give more importance to rote learned marks and grades rather than real knowledge....
