Scott Adams on getting a real education

Lots of good ideas in this Scott Adams (of Dilbert) article about what he learned in college. Lots of sneaky tricks too.

Here's just one tidbit I especially liked...

The Dale Carnegie method ignores speaking technique entirely and trains you instead to enjoy the experience of speaking to a crowd. Once you become relaxed in front of people, technique comes automatically. Over the years, I've given speeches to hundreds of audiences and enjoyed every minute on stage. But this isn't a plug for Dale Carnegie. The point is that people can be trained to replace fear and shyness with enthusiasm. Every entrepreneur can use that skill.
