Do Less, Live More, Get Accepted
What if getting into your reach schools didn’t require four years of over the top A.P.-taking, overwhelming activity schedules, and constant stress?
In How to Be a High School Superstar, Cal Newport explores the world of relaxed superstars—students who scored spots at the nation’s top colleges by leading uncluttered, low stress, and authentic lives. Drawing from extensive interviews and state of the art science, Newport explains the surprising truths at the back of these superstars’ mixture of happiness and admissions success, including:
· Why doing less is the foundation for becoming more impressive.
· Why demonstrating passion is meaningless, but being interesting is the most important.
· Why accomplishments that are hard to explain are better than accomplishments that are hard to do.
These insights are accompanied by step by step instructions to help any student adopt the relaxed superstar way of life—proving that getting into college doesn’t must be a chore to continue to exist, but as a substitute will also be the reward for living a genuinely interesting life.
