Welcome to Hack The System, Zen Habits reader!


in Uncategorized

Hello and welcome to Hack the System! You’re probably new around here, so I thought I’d give you a quick introduction to the site.

First of all, if you read the language learning article from, you know that I prepared a set of five very special supplementary videos to show you how to learn a language. Grab the How To Learn A Language in 90 Days videos here.

Hack The System is a site about one major goal—how can we take advantage of inconsistencies to succeed, rapidly and unconventionally? We look at inconsistencies in businesses — getting free plane tickets, for instance — and in ourselves. Through tested methods, you’ll learn how to achieve your goals, rapidly and intensely.

Hack the System will show you how to succeed quickly through Exercise Hacks, Productivity Hacks, Travel Hacks, Networking Hacks, Habit Hacks, and more.

Check out some of my favorite articles.

Hi Maneesh,
As someone who learned ten languages between kindergarten and college, I was interested in your article on Zen Habits and your advice sounds much like mine when I give others advice on learning languages, though I adjust for the fact that most of them can’t do it fulltime for 3 months.
I have another question I’m curious to hear your opinion about: what is your strategy for maintaining the languages you learnt and how do you reconcile this with your strategy of immersing yourself in one language every time?
