Self Education

Someone named Nick sent me an e-mail the other day that I think poses a good enough question to answer it publicly:

Tynan,

I am a 21 year old university student and have realized in the past 2 years that self-education is the foundation personal growth. As such, I've started devouring books; 2 or 3 a week on a probably too broad range of subjects. But I know that I'm missing a lot.
What should I do to improve my education outside of just "read a lot?" Where should I start?

The Mentality Behind the Magic Touch; Derek Sivers interviewed by Chiara Cokieng

Derek Sivers sold CDBaby for $22 million dollars in 2008. In this interview, he explains what he's been doing now, how he's engaged with his new projects, and -- most excitingly for business owners and entrepreneurs -- the mentality behind the "magic touch" he had that made CDBaby so loved by its customers, and a huge part of how it grew so quickly. Here's Derek --

In 2008, when I sold CDBaby, I was about to start a new company immediately. Literally the day after I sold CDBaby, I was ready to start my next company. I incorporated it, I started programming, got a few months into building it, and then realized that if I were to do that, I wouldn’t be making any real change in my life.
