5 Things to Bring to College

5 Things to Bring to College

Christopher S. Penn does the impossible: he records a daily podcast about financial aid and student loans, and he makes it interesting. The most recent episode I listened to (#331 by the way) had a really great list for college students heading back in a few weeks to their next semester. The list is interesting, but when you listen to the podcast, Chris goes into explaining why he thinks these tools are necessary but overlooked by folks heading back to school.

  • A Laptop
  • A Digital Camera
  • A Knife (for utility purposes, silly)
  • A Stored Value Card (in lieu of credit card)
  • A USB (or VoIP) headset

Like I say, the explanations make this an interesting and useful list.

Book summary: A Technique for Producing Ideas

Kirby Ferguson has written a summary for the book A Technique for Producing Ideas. Generating good idea is a fine art, if you have mastered it you will be successful in many fields. The author of the book, James Young, describes five steps on a technique of combining old elements together:

  • Gather new material, both specific and general.
  • The Mental Digestive Process
  • Drop it
  • Poof, the idea appears
  • Work it

Kirby also brought out his own thoughts – drop down every ideas you have in mind – You mind is not always as good as paper and sometimes it only stays for a short period of time. After you’ve dropped your ideas into your notepad, you will also have extra chances of linking and modifying your ideas together.
