Step #5: Re-Organize & Create An Action Plan

These are three different sets of notes. On the left is Thomas Frank’s 1o Steps To Earning Better Grades, and the other two are Gustav Le Bon’s The Psychology of the Crowd: you’ll notice that the middle notes are just a massive list, while the outer ones are organized by theme, making it easier to pick a subject and read up on it.

To Conclude…

Poli Sci grad, Comms Strategist, great at remembering names and terrible at pronouncing them. I write on political psych, practical philosophy, and random stuff
