I really enjoyed the first course, Learn 2Learn. The female professor is great but the boring old guy should have been kicked out of the course, as he do not provide anything of value for the course.

An enjoyable course as well as having the bonus features about memory techniques really useful. There is more scope for invited speakers in the bonus videos section. it flows well from the original course of 'learning how to learn'.

This is the first course I take under the topic Mindshift. As a non-native speaker of English I found the course easy to understand. The course has covered many concepts that meant a lot to me, which I took time to analyse and deeply think about and relate to events in my life. I have put serious effort to try to memorize them. Here are some:
- The hiker learning style;
- Getting actively engaged into what I am trying to learn: testing myself is a way, using the new information is another;
- Paradigm Shift;
- Broaden my passion rather than following it;
- Focused attention exercises help to increase focusing abilities;
- Activities during my day should vibrate between mental and physical;
- Plan to fight procrastination by: Increasing the expectancy of success and reward, increasing the value and pleasantness of what I am doing, decreasing impulsiveness and distraction;
- Conceptual understanding + memorizing = solid chunks;
- Put a label (a word) on a feeling to start thinking logically about it, then try to put it in a positive frame;
- Take a decision --> define my goal/goals --> choose people who will help me achieve that;
- The environment surrounding me has a huge influence on me --> psychological safety --> increase serotonin;
- T/п: two legs are more stable than one --> develop new skills: 6 months =~ 6 years: skill development curve is logarithmic not linear;
- Approaches of career shifting: dabble, double life, contrarian;
- Selective ignorance is necessary while developing a new skill;
- Persistence and flexibility are essential in learning anything;
- There are 3 important hormones that play a role in learning process: dopamin which helps learn new skills, serotonin that helps form social bonds and noradrenaline that helps us to avoid danger;
- Learning new things help us form new neurons and synapses and requires getting out of comfort zone;
- Mentors play a huge role in life;
- Reading 20 mins a day help me become smarter and healthier;
- Emotional and cognitive intelligence are equally important;
- For things to change --> I have to change --> my thoughts and capabilities;
- Luck = preparation + opportunity + action;
- When you take action --> you get results: if they are positive then you have succeeded and if they are negative you will learn a lot from the experience --> the worst thing is to do nothing;
- Problems can be seen as opportunities;
- Mindshifting = reevaluating relations in my life: cut negative ones, build new short-term ones to achieve short-term goals, build long-term ones to collaborate and achieve long-term goals;
- Skills that I gain from one field can be used in other fields --> creativity.
I hope this abstract will be helpful.

This course is fantastic. It builds naturally where Learning to Learn leaves off. Dr. Oakley shows us that it's possible for anyone to broaden their passions to learn anything. I've also found in useful in reviewing material from Learning to Learn as some of the concepts are reinforced here.

I enjoyed this course very much. The materials are easy to digest and the quizzes at the end helped to solidify concepts being discussed. I also enjoy the instructors communication/teaching techniques (lively, use of jokes and illustration, not boring, good voice and intonation). The information are rather basic (surface level) but I didn't mind. It serves more as reminder than hard core learning modules. This way, I can listen to the materials during my commute to work and still able to retain the information. Thank you for teaching this MOOC!
