Deciding What To Learn

The good news: At u.school you can choose to learn anything, at any time, anywhere, with anyone. Not only that, you can choose how to learn it and you can decide why it is important. You have options galore!

The bad news: You have options galore! That means you have to make decisions.

We get it. It can be hard deciding. Especially when your options are unlimited.

Don’t worry. It’s not just you. It’s true for everyone. 

Have you ever watched a shopper standing in front of an aisle of potato chips trying to decide which one to get? So many choices!

Have you ever scrolled through pages and pages of Netflix movies trying to figure out what to watch?

We call this The Blank Page Problem. A blank sheet of paper is intimidating because it could become anything. 

Starting can be the hardest part. Everyone has stared at a blank sheet of paper not knowing how to start. Again, it’s not you. Everyone has this problem.

We have created some tools to help you overcome the blank page problem. These are just some tricks we can use to help you decide what to do next. 

The first trick is to narrow down your choices.

Step 1: Pick between one of these two choices…

CHOICE 1 — Design your own Learning Opportunity from scratch: Even if you have no idea what to do next, this set of tools will help you brainstorm and design your very own, brand new, super deluxe, custom Learning Opportunity. 


CHOICE 2 — Join an existing Learning Opportunity: There is a whole world of things already happening in the world that you can join.
