"How to Crush College" is an unorthodox guide to Adding Sleep, Reducing Stress, Double-Majoring, Graduating Early, and Getting Way More Out of the College experience. It's designed to help college students--whether currently struggling or already feeling "on top of things"--to achieve goals once thought impossible by dramatically increasing their effectiveness, eliminating previously-unthinkable amounts of wasted time in their lives, and then re-directing that time towards what's most important. Did you know that 60% of college students don't graduate within 4 years and that 40% don't graduate within six? To make things worse, students everywhere suffer from sleep-deprivation, stress, physical inactivity, and (of course) huge debt that grows with each extra semester. Even at MIT (my alma mater), friends of mine dropped out because they thought they "didn't have what it took." Other friends took 9 or 10 semesters--both miserably and hugely costly for young adults already in mountains of debt. Universally, the cultural norm in the US is that college students are expected to lose sleep and become addicted to caffeine. I think all of the above is unacceptable. My mission with "How to Crush College" is to change this forever, affecting change at the only place its realistic: with students themselves. I want to take college students from treading water to excelling and loving college. A successful, joyous college career should not be reserved for the lucky few. I want to give everyone a surefire way to achieve this. I want to eradicate burnout and restore fun. I want to make college great. The principles, practices, and mindsets that are consistent across the most successful college students are translated into a very clear, simple step-by-step guide designed specifically with the college student in mind. Its early steps focus on the biggest picture, recover the most time, and create early wins that motivate students to keep going and keep making progress. How to Crush College turns wisdom on its head by helping students do more with fewer hours and less guilt. Let's Crush College together!
