To learn, you must consume.

But most people consume inefficiently. They allow “educational distractions” and pursue things during times where they should be doing important work.

Becoming a learning machine doesn’t mean watching or listening to things on 2X speed or speed reading.

It’s about how you optimize your consumption time, not the pace at which you consume. Consumption is a good thing only if what you’re consuming enriches your life.

Increasing your consumption speed only means you will consume more. It doesn’t actually mean you’ll retain what you consume (and isn’t that the point?). Educational consumption can be detrimental if it’s taking you away from important work you should be doing.

The key is deferring your consumption. That’s what we talk about in this episode. Learn to optimize your consumption habits and become a learning machine.
