How to Learn anything in 20 hours with these Time Management Secrets.

Are you a crazy about learning new things? Have your recent lifestyle made you busy all day long and you no longer get to do what you like the most - learning?  Now you spent the precious little time you get after all the busy works on the pursuit of finding new time

management secrets that might magically help you find time to do all u ever wanted to do someday. Well, accept it you're never gonna that time-pausing machine. 


However, on my search I've found out some interesting resources that could help you make the most of your time. Josh Kaufman is the name to remember. I stumbled upon his TED talk video one day, the video gave me some great insights. 


At the end of the video he demonstrates how he learned to play a musical instrument from scratch in 20 hours. That demo play being the end of his 20th hour. And few days after that Ramit Sethi ( author of a bestseller book ) blogged about him. 


I got to know more personally about him from the blog. He really is an awesome guy. Ramit says :
"Josh is so skilled at mental frameworks, he was THE person I called when I was stuck on a very specific part of building one of my flagship courses. "

The blog also mentioned that Josh had written two books. The titles were



I've seen the first title on most of the book stalls, but thought of it as another piece of crap time management strategy. This guy is really good and he'd produced results that anybody can DO, the best part is he himself have practice what he preach.

The Personal MBA : Master the Art of Business

This book title is not a very eye-catching word like 'Think and Grow Rich' nor funny like ' The monk who sold his Ferrari' that people would be attracted to the book to just have look inside. I felt the title is rather very boring for an ordinary guy, a business person, or even an entrepreneur in the same magnitude. People might have first impression about the book as an average level businessperson's guide. Well, that's wrong it's about improving your own life as well as your business ( both start-ups and grown-ups) . Plenty of practically proven hacks on time management, improving your personality, social interaction and managing a entire business. Check out two of the cover reviews published on the book:

"This book goes far beyond business: I used the marketing, sales, and communication principles in this book to complete my PhD and land a highly competitive postdoc and professorship at a world-class research university.What ever you do for a living, this book will help you do it even better."
Dr. Zachary Gagnon, Assistant Professor of Chemical Engineering, Johns Hopkins University 


"I graduated with an MBA in 2005 before I encountered The Personal MBA, but I still felt like I didn't know anything about business. In retrospect, I wish I had read this book before enrolling in an MBA program—it would've helped me be more mindful while completing my degree. Who knows . . . I might have skipped the MBA completely. This is easily the best foundational business book available."
Roger Hui, Technical Account Manager, RedHat, Inc. 

The book is worth it's weight in gold. Don't waste time anymore. Get a copy now!

ICFAI Sikkim Distance MBA Review From My Experience

After a long research I joined for the ICFAI distance MBA program in 2012. Now I've completed 2 semesters ( as of 2013 ). I wanted to write this review so that people who are looking for a good MBA program can get a hand-on review about the distance MBA offered by the ICFAI Sikkim. I've been through all the cycles of this program and this review might help you make the right choice about the program. This article presents my own ( and unbiased ) view of the program and is in no way associated with the course provider.

Only institutes and colleges affiliated to a University are required to take AICTE approval. So ICFAI be…

Is MacBook Air Good For Programming / Blogging ?

I'm a passionate java developer who just migrated from a Windows PC netbook ( Dell mini ) to a 13 inch MacBook Air. Before the netbook I owned a Dell inspirion 1501.

Unfortunately it turned out that it was a worthless device.The rest of the story goes...

Building Autonomous Drone with Raspberry Pi and APM 2.8

I am a total newbie to hardware and was pushing my limits to see how far I can reach on with hardware projects (which sparked my interest lately). I have set out on a very ambitions mission to control a drone from raspberry pi.I began the research for this around 2 months ago and had brought a raspberry pi, drone body kit and apm flight controller. The key difference of this project from common drone projects is that I'm trying to avoid the use of and RC and instead use the raspberry pi to control it. 


Hardware Installation Setup:
I am using APM 2.8 and Mission Planner.I am using RPi 3 to control the APM 2.8 via Telem port of APMI am planning to power the apm via the battery to ESC (Electronic Speed Controllers)
