Art of Self-Directed Learning [Blake Boles]
« on: January 13, 2018, 10:35:46 AM »
For me, this book is a tiny and long affirmation of my entire life. For others...? I see it as the Mustachian credo, the real scoop on the unschooling many forumites fret about, a list of pointers as to how to become self-directed if one has only ever been factory-farmed, a solid guide for folks worried about post-FIRE boredom.

Would love to hear your experience of it :)

ohhhh, I like the cover (on Amazon.ca) but my library doesn't seem to have it. Sounds like a great read for FIREd people. For me, with my f-t job, it sounds like it would just make me want to engage in more self-learning and feel resentful that I don't have the time I'd like to devote to it.

I would say great for anyone who has time now or plans to have time in future :)    Even devoting 30 minutes per week to self-directed learning can be great respite from other-directed hours, deeply refreshing and healing, and life-changing. I can sure see how it could make a person long for more, though! And how one could feel transiently resentful of their "sold" hours until more free hours are carved out. I hope you get lots of those soon, Dee!
