The NOT To Do List for Successful Foreign Language Learners

The NOT To Do List for Successful Foreign Language Learners

Ratings: (0)|Views: 69 |Likes:
Published by John Fotheringham
To do lists seem like a good idea in theory, but they have one major disadvantage: there is an infinite number of potential to do items. With this in mind, Timothy Ferriss, best-selling author of The 4-Hour Workweek (and a speaker of 6 languages), recommends “not to do lists” instead. Since they isolate a finite set of behaviors that are getting between you and your goals, they are far more effective than traditional to do lists. This tool applies perfectly to language learning, where most learners waste a lot of time on ineffective methods and bad materials.
