comment How to read a 300-page non-fictional book in a day?
+1 on the impossible task. You'd have to read a page roughly every 2 minutes to complete that amount of material. And computer books are dense enough that you won't retain (or understand) much at that speed.

comment Learning optimally?
@Isaacb No. I didn't mean it that way. I meant do some minimal amount of each thing but spend a lot of time one one thing. If you don't practice music at all for a month, you'll forget it. Kind of like how you don't stop brushing your teeth when you get busy. Think of it as if you have X hours to do the "bits of everything" (which includes friends) and Y hours to "learn other stuff." I'm suggesting focusing the "learn other stuff" time so it isn't overwhelming at all there is out there. And ask your parents for advice :).

comment Learning optimally?
@AsheeshR A 9year old goes to school. That's plenty diverse. I don't mean "master" on a college level for what it is worth. And I did suggest doing deep dives into different things; just in sequence. Kids do learn that way. For example, they being really excited about legos and that's all you hear about for a couple weeks. Then a specific video game. Then a robot kit. Etc.

@Isaacb yes - things related to each other. You'll fine it naturally that skills transfer and you see connections. Being with friends and learning aren't mutually exclusive. Invite your friends to a museum or to build a robot or something you enjoy.

This question appears to be off-topic because it is not related to personal productivity.
