The Research Phase

  1. Get the big picture. Scan articles etc. to get an idea of what the field is about.
  2. Determine scope. Limit the size of what you want to learn. “Physics” or “philosophy” is too wide and will take decades. “Classical mechanics”, while still wide, might be a bit easier.
  3. Define success. Make a clear goal for your learning.
  4. Find resources 
  5. Create a learning planfrom what you have learned in you previous steps.
  6. Filter resources. Narrow down your resource list (Step 4) to the most important essentials.
