Generally, the book GOOD GOOD STUDY is talking about how to imprve the mindset of the people who want to have a high efficiency and be more effecive in the daily live.
What I think are the most important opinion in the book are as blow:
1.Types of knowledge
Nowadays, people can get lots of information from Internet, media,friends,colleagues and so on. But only seldom of these information are knowledge, and it is the capacity that distingushing the key information that could help for your development from the massive of infromation makes a person different and more efficient. The book figure out that if a man can identify the substance of a phenomenon or problem ,understand the rules hid behine the surface, that means the man is getting the key point and make a more effective solution in pushing things forward.Actually, the rules behide the phenonenon are connective and similar in most of cases.As a result, if a man master the hiding rules, most of the things can be done in a basic principle. So, the most important thing for development is understanding the “critical knowledge”.
2.what Knowledges are worth studying
The book tells us that, the “slash” does not mean that a man works in many industries . The real “slash” is like a team or a crew, he gets lots of skills,but all his works are basically in the same area or industry. As a army, some soldiers cook, some maintain the equipment, some manage the organization and some battle in the front line.But all of their works have the same goal- win the war. So, a “slash” can understand what things they should do and what they shouldn’t. they would only care about the knowledge that can really help them to fullfill their goal. The author figure out that 20% basic knowledge can solve 80% problems , because most of the thigns share the same basic priciples.
3.How to master the basic priciples
There are three ways to improve your thinking quality and master the basic priciples.First, insisting on reflecting yourself and write daily to record your introspection. If the time reversed, how would you deal with the same issue? After a certain period, you could find some basic priciple that match lots of things you counter. Second,learn by teaching. Teahing is outputing your thougths, if you do not master a concept or thing clearly, you could find it when you are trying to teach others ,and it gives you a chance to make up for the loops.Besides, you can strengten your memory of the things while you teach the others. What’s more, after teaching, when you are interacting with the others, theny may figure something new out and you can have a chance to understand it deeper from differet angles.Third,deliberate practise. It mainly means you need to learn to consider things in a mindset with the basic and critical priciple.
4.some critical knowledge and application
(1)compound interest. This priciple can be the used in lots of issues. For example, the monetray interest is very interesting. Althought , the interest rate just has a little difference at the beginning, but with the time goes on, the number would be larger and larger.For the Interpersonal connections, if a guy make more friends, there will be more friend to be introduced and forms a larger interpersonal network.
(2)Probability. Every thing in the life has its probability. The veture investor’s job is to find a group that has a bigger probalility to succeed than the normal. If a thing can be done has a probability, as the times you try increased, the probability of getting it done would be increased.So , we should insist on doing things that has a relatively big probability.Beside, we should make a back up for the things that has a small probability.
(3)Golden thinking circle. There are three layers in a thing. First,the phenomenon(what);second,the way get it done(How); third,why it should be done (why). If we want to find out the substance of a thing, we should ask why.
(4)Theory of evolution. The evironment is changing all the time , but our action usually can not catch the pace.So, we should find a better place and form a bigger interpersonal connection to get the informative advantage to see the changes in time. 20% people owns 80% information of the world, so ,the guy in the center of interpersonal connection gets the most of the useful information. What’s more, if some people do not have the venture gene,they can try to make use of the right theory(lean start up )and imitate the best person in the same level to put knowledge into action.
(5)systematic thinking. Try to figure out what the relation from the view of the whole system rather than just the people and thing.
(6)20-80 principle. 20% people you know brings 80% value to you. The key to expand your interpersonal connection is finding out the “Sturcture hole”, the man who connect one circle to another .then , you could know both circle’s information. And try to make the people in diferent circle to have new connection. As this happen, the information would be flowed actively , and it will creat more opportunities automatically.It just like a market, where there are more people and information ,where there will be more opportunities. Howe to make friends and share sources and value? The core is honesty and share the common value. On the above two basic elements, there are two method to get trust:First:expose your self , share your story and your character, to let the other know your better. Second,to help and give other positively.
