Understanding Ultralearning , the Educational System, and Mental Barriers 

Scott Young is the author of Wall Street Journal and National best selling book: "Ultralearning: Master Hard Skills, Outsmart the Competition, and Accelerate Your Career".

Scott has been a prolific writer on his blog since 2006 where he writes about learning, productivity, career, habits and living well. He is known for documenting learning challenges such as learning a 4-year MIT computer science degree in one year, learning four languages in one year and learning to draw portraits in 30 days.

His work has been featured in TEDx, The New York Times, Lifehacker, Popular Mechanics, Business Insider, and more.

Some questions I ask: What does the word ULTRALEARNING mean to you? How would you compare the Ultralearning Project to a traditional degree or educational system? Can you run us through your own process of ultralearning, maybe when you did the MIT course, when you learned the different languages, or maybe one you are doing now? How do you recommend we break these mental barriers we create for ourselves?
